Books I've Read This Week


Ganymede by Cherie Priest is not my favourite book of her Clockwork Century series as it is just okay. It seems to be a bit of a rearranging the deck chairs type of novel more of a setup for future novels than anything else. I'm still interested in reading more of this series but don't let this be the first of Cherie Priest's book you pick up. I really have to recommend the Boneshaker audio book with Wil Wheaton and Kate Reading alternating the narration of the book from the two main characters point of view.

Fables Vol. 15: Rose Red along with Vol. 14: Witches it really feels like this series is starting to get moving again recovering from the disastrous Great Fables Crossover which took up all of volume 13. Really happy to see Rose Red finally getting out of bed for the first time in what seems like 4 volumes of this story. We are starting to get characters moving forwards again and certain hidden bits of information being uncovered that will cause problems in future stories.

Anything You Want by Derek Sivers was one of those nice short, quick to read books that the Domino Project is cranking out. There is some really great advice for entrepreneurs from someone who's done it themselves. Mr. Sivers grew CD Baby from his own home coded website to an 85 person company he sold from 22 million once it stopped being fun for him.

See you next Friday.

Well this is kinda the wrong post for this question. Anyway it's hard to tell without seeing your code but make sure you reference the video.js and copy in the Java code in your project. Running "adb logcat" while reproducing your issue is very helpful to see any error that occurs.
