Favorite Pictures

I’ve always liked this picture. I’m not sure what type of plant it is. I took this picture while on a hike in Switzerland back in 2000.

Trials course

I’ve been working on a cool trials course for muni weekend 07 (Mountain Unicycle weekend) in Santa Cruz. Here are a few highlights and the full album on picasa: Trials at Corbin’s House

This is really cool:

I’m on TV! …sort of…

A few months ago when I went to Moab for a huge mountain unicycling festival (Moab Muni Fest), there were some people from Mountain Dew filming. Well, they put there film online, and I’m in it! I’m the guy in the red shirt right behind the announcer when he introduces things. Louise is right next to me. How cool! Mountain Dew Moab Muni Link

Happy iPhone day!

Today is a very exciting day. The iPhone is going to be available at 6pm. Let me tell you, it is wonderful! Go get one. You will not be disappointed.

Corbin’s treehouse on “Off beat homes”

JENNIFER CHAIT did a cool blog article on my treehouse. Check it out: Corbins treehouse on Off Beat Homes

Some of my favorite photographs…

Here is one of the first pictures I took when I got my Cannon. Me in a fuzzy guitar.

NSBrowser, bindings, and a custom cell class

Hi Cocoa Programmers, There is a small bug in NSBrowser if you use bindings and want a custom cell class. Typically, you would do something like this in your awakeFromNib: - (void)awakeFromNib { [iBrowser setCellClass:[ImageTextBrowserCell class]]; } However, if you are using bindings, it won’t work. The cells that were archived out in the nib file will not have the proper class. So, you have to nudge NSBrowser a bit to get it going: - (void)awakeFromNib { [iBrowser setCellClass:[ImageTextBrowserCell class]]; [iBrowser loadColumnZero]; } Just a quick tip in case you run into this!

Louise silk pictures

Here are some silk pictures with Louise at our house:

WWDC 2007

If you haven’t seen me at Apple WWDC 20007, I’m easy to “spot”: In fact, I’m on the attendee page!

My firemouth chichlids had babies!

..and here they are: Sadly, of these hundred or so fish, only three have survived. I put about 10-20 in a baby net, hoping that the hundred or so of others could survive, but a few days later I couldn’t find any. The only ones that made it were the three in the net. So far..they are doing okay. Hopefully they will reach adulthood! The dad guarding: And our other bunny:

bees in our rafters…

Currently, they are just hanging out…I need to get rid of them..safely without hurting them.

Beautiful new table

Well, not new, but an antique that we got from Louise’s mom and step-dad, bill: Looks great! (Thanks JD and Bill)

Fish Tank!

Project Hutchinson now has a beautiful fish tank. Actually, it has had it for several weeks, but I have been too busy to post a picture. This is a wonderful 150’ish gallon tank that I got from my friend (and old coworker) Kendall. I spruced it up by repainting the edge a cinnamon color, and creating a nice stand for it. The stand is made out of douglas fir, and stained to match the rest of the house.


Well, we finally got some carpet put in, and it has been great! Take a look on picasa: Hutchinson – before and after carpet

Petsmart secrets!

I have some pet fish, and I recently needed a new filter for my new tank setup (pictures to follow some day). So, I went to Petsmart and found a good one for my tank size: Rena FilStar xP3 Canister Filter. Only $179 at petsmart. But, that is expensive! So I did a quick web search and found it online selling at for $105:….. So, I asked the salesman, and he said they will match the online price if I bring in a printout. So, I went to work, printed out the page, and saved $75! But then... [read more]

Get smart!!!

In 2008, smart USA will be importing smart cars! I can’t wait. We need smaller, more energy efficient cars in America. Reserve your smart car. I did already, and I can’t wait to get one! I’ll probably quit driving (or sell) my Subaru WRX STi. I can get 19-22 MPG by being gentle on the pedal, but the smart is projected to get 40 MPG! That’s great for a non-hybrid. Help America reduce our dependance on foreign oil.

A greener apple

I’m an advocate for greener companies, and I’m happy to announce that the company I work for is striving for greener technology: Spread the word.

New Kris Holm 24″ Mountain Unicycle
