The Tip of the Day is usually posted at 10 AM Eastern Time (GMT -5).
Updated: 11:30 EST – Well, truth be told I'm trying to demonstrate keyframe animation in a new and inteteresting way and rather than giving up on my idea, I've chosen to keep at it and delay the Tip of the Day until tomorrow. I very much appreciate your patience,and I hope it will be worth it.
Confession: like many programmers, once I get that "just another few minutes and I'll have this working" sense, I tend to keep at it long past where it makes any sense at all; after everyone else has lost interest and gone home, and I'm left quite alone with the wind blowing through an empty stadium, bits of debris floating by, and a scraggly cat staring at me wistfuly from under a nearby chair waiting for someone responsible to come and lead me away for a nice meal and a nap.
Update 10AM 1/25/08: After spending too much time on this, I have found what I think may be a small bug in how the streaming service handles some events (if it is a bug, I'll blog it here) and am now ready to finish my Tip of the Day, which I will not have by 10 (since it is now 10) but which I will post later today, with apologies.
Update: 11:50 1/25/08 – Finally! Published.
