11 October 2011 - My first book to be published this week
Excited and relieved that this week is looking promising for the actual release of my book “iPhone Applications Tune-Up”. A few delays caused by the release of iOS 5 and a new version of Xcode made this a more than lengthy process. More than likely it will be some time before I write another; mostly […]
25 February 2011 - Woohoo! Pre-order: iPhone Applications Tune-Up
Well, my first published book is now available for pre-order and it’s details are now public. To sum it up, it’s an action-thriller set in the medieval age of war-torn eastern Europe filled with empirical struggles between feudalism and aristocratic ideals. It’s not well known that Objective-C played a pivotal role in the dismantling of […]
15 January 2011 - Chapter 8 is off to the publisher!
Cliché, I know — but time has absolutely flown by. It’s very hard to believe that the first draft of chapter 8 has made it off to the publisher and only a handful of chapters remain before ultimately, my first book will be published. I recently printed the entire book up to this point and […]
04 December 2010 - Aanval v6 is now available!
Aanval v6 (Grendel) was released Thursday (12/03/10) morning. It represents more than 9 months of development and is a significant milestone in the long, nearly 7 year history of the snort & syslog correlation console. As we’ve been commenting on over the past several months, Aanval v6 is a major interation and one we are sure […]
06 September 2010 - First book, the contract and Wow! This is a lot of work.
Recently, I dropped my name on a contract with Packt Publishing to author an iPhone development book with a narrow focus on application performance. I’m very much excited about the opportunity and look forward to the next several months of ‘book author boot camp’. Some close colleagues of mine were kind enough to expose me […]
26 August 2010 - How can you not love Objective-C…
[[[self navigationItem] rightBarButtonItem] setTitle:[[[NSString alloc] initWithFormat:@”%d”, [[NSNumber numberWithFloat:[[liveRepeatingTimer fireDate] timeIntervalSinceNow]] intValue]] autorelease]]; It just makes me so happy! ~moses
13 July 2010 - Aanval iPhone App; Come and get it!
First, what a huge relief it is to smoothly sail through Apple’s App review process and land an App in the App Store. We are extremely excited to have published the very first App of this kind, as well as firmly step once again, ahead of Aanval competitors by providing our customers and users with […]
22 June 2010 - Xcode 3.2.3 and iPhone 4 running iOS 4
I’ve been very much waiting to get my hands on the iPhone 4… for a lot of reasons, but mostly to start pushing out some code on the new device. After the excitement of this morning / afternoon (FedEx delivering the iPhone 4, 2 days early) and the craziness of snapping a dozen pictures and […]
16 November 2009 - PHP Socket Server, Flex XMLSocket w/ Reflection
This was the result of a little playing with XMLSocket along with PHP to create a multi-client socket server for Flex to interact with. Initially I only wanted to test the simplicity of Flex’s ability to make simple socket connections and pass data, however one can easily see how much fun you could have here. […]
17 August 2009 - Free ticket to Flash Camp Atlanta 2009 … for me!

Flash Camp Atlanta is a one day event focusing on the Flash platform, Flex and Actionscript. The camp provides tracks for both beginners […]
