House for rent (that has my treehouse on it) in Corralitos, ca

Most of my family lives in Hawaii, but they still have a house over here in Corralitos, Santa Cruz County, California. My dad decided we should rent it out, so it will be available (starting in April or May). What is special about this house? Well, my treehouse is on the property, although it is going to not be included in the rental so we have a place to visit and stay at. My dad posted the following on craigslist: “Built in 1981 redwood home with dining room and den. two car garage with room for one car, carport,... [read more]

Ride the Lobster! Unicycle race…

I mentioned before that I’m going to be “riding the lobster”. One of my team mates, Kevin, had a great article on him in the good times (a local paper in santa cruz): Check it out! Speaking of a unicycle ride, I’m going to be doing a unicycle tour in Vietnam in March, dubbed “uninam”:’s time to start training!

Artisan Tree & Treehouse

Cocoa: willDisplayCell delegate method of NSTableView, [NSCell setTextColor], and “source lists”

Mac OS 10.5 added a “source list” highlighting style to NSTableView, with the API below for your reference: enum { NSTableViewSelectionHighlightStyleRegular = 0, NSTableViewSelectionHighlightStyleSourceList = 1, }; typedef NSInteger NSTableViewSelectionHighlightStyle; – (NSTableViewSelectionHighlightStyle)selectionHighlightStyle; – (void)setSelectionHighlightStyle:(NSTableViewSelectionHighlightStyle)selectionHighlightStyle; Source lists should have bold text when the item is selected, and NSTableView attempts to auto-format the cell’s contents to automatically do this for you, as seen in this screen shot for the selected item in the open panel source list: However, the code that does this formatting does so by converting the ‘stringValue’ of the cell to an attributedStringValue that has the bold text.

Silk instruction

I’m getting Louise to give me some Silk lessons in our house. I figured it would be easiest for me to learn by pictures. So, here they are. Click on any picture for a larger image on picasa. This is a simple inverted drop. Climb the silk Place your body in the middle of the silk Invert, keeping your legs on the outside of the silk (important!) After inversion, twist both legs around the silk – rotate them towards the outside so the silk comes out the middle of your legs Keep the silk above your hips, and wrap it... [read more]

Movies from Muni Weekend 07 – Santa Cruz

Dani, a great unicycle rider from Hawaii, not only flew all the way over the Pacific to come to Muni Weekend, but he also brought his camera and got a lot of great shots. Here’s the two videos on you tube: Trials riding at my house: Trials at the Jetty in Santa Cruz by the beach — I’m actually in this one a bit. I have a blue helmet, white shorts (ripped), blue unicycle. Louise has a yellow shirt at the start.
