Porting dashCommerce to nopCommerce

Looking for recommendations for how to port a bunch of products from dashCommerce (which appears to have suddenly gone defunct, see my prev post). Im currently looking at database hacking to move some basic data across, but this might be a useful tool for all the dc users who are now stranded with a product that has absolutely no support. Please comment with any suggestions or solutions.


Faster than the wind

Saw some article in PopSci about a wind powered car, and it used a propeller to drive the drive wheels. Claimed it could drive directly into a headwind with the setup. Which makes sense, but then we later began discussing whether it could go fater than a tailwind. Very non-intuitive, but turns out this is possible… and pretty dang cool. I did some searching and found this discussion on the topic: http://karmatics.com/dwfttw (dtfttw = downwind faster than the wind)

Short Promotion – HyundaiOwner.com

Just a quick promotion for www.hyundaiowner.com , a new forum for Hyundai car owners. The new Genesis is showing that Hyundai means business, so I expect there to be increasing interest in this company and their cars going into the future. Heck I wouldnt mind driving a Genesis myself 😉

Howdy, and Why?

Since I spend a lot of time online seeking solutions to problems (aka, find some sucker who has already done the work for me), I finally decided to start this to keep the results of my “hard work” in one location. A lot of this is programming related, and specifically of the C# flavor.

But I also have a problem of what I call “reventing”… inventing things that have, well, already been invented… sometimes almost a century ago. But these reventions are typically interesting discussions nonetheless, so why not put them here. And perhaps it could help me avoid re-reventing, and it’s not like I’m revealing some big secrets.

If you are wandering in from some far side of the globe, let me explain that “Howdy” is how we say “Hello” in Texas. Or at least, how we used to. Although it was never considered proper english, I’m trying to at least keep this reminder of our past alive, as it seems most Texan’s no longer speak “Texan” anymore… we all sound like boring midwest losers like the kind you see on tv… myself included. Well, except for the growing quantity of “press 2” crowd here, but that’s another topic.
