Destin, FL

Okay, well, this weekend I'm in Destin, FL. Nice touristy town. Humid as all hell, but nice.

Shopping seems to be the name of the game down here, (even though I am down here for my brother-in-law's wedding), but lots of shopping.

A review on two OSX text editors

Well, being a text editing man myself (lots of shell scripts, perl progs, Snort.conf and rules files), I decided to test out a couple of 'markup' text editors for OSX. Now, what do I mean by 'markup'.

Basically, when I edit a file, the editor should mark it up with different colors and such to deliniate what I am trying to do, that way, if I forget to put a ";" in somewhere, the editor should turn all my text red (or whatever) in order to tell me "Hey, you screwed up".

I chose to test two: Vim and TextMate.

Vim -- I like Vim because, well, I am used to vi + vim on the redhat platform. Vi is very easy to learn, and vim is even easier and more powerful. You can perform powerful regular expressions to replace text anyway you want to, searching for text is a breeze, and editing is very simple as well (once you get used to the interface, there is a learning curve). Vim marks up shell scripts, html, perl, and even snort.conf and snort.rules files nicely. The Vim interface for OSX is a bit lacking (hey, what do you want, it's vim!!), but at least it makes it up through menu commands. (Yes you can still do the manual ":" editing.

TextMate -- Standard text editor, you can't do commands like ":" in it, it's Sans-serif fonts are a bit nicer on the eyes than the fixed-width fonts of Vim. It marks up shell, perl, and html scripts just fine. However it does lack the ability to color code Snort rules files. Which kinda sucks for me. It has a much better Gui++, but costs money--.

Verdict: Unless you are willing to pay the money for a product that doesn't mark up everything you want it to, stick with Vim. Besides, you should already be used to vim. (right?)

Apple's big glass cube

Tomorrow is Apple's big day to unveil their brand new store to the public, today they announced it to the press.

The big thing about the store is that it's all underground, 20,000 feet of it. The only thing above ground is a huge glass cube. It's has to be the coolest thing ever for retail. Similar to the glass pyramid in front of the Louvre, this is Steve Jobs's version of a Masterpiece.



Of course all of us Apple fanboys are up there taking pictures, and there are so many sites to view, however, I've went looking through all of these for you, to find the best one. Here.

So, go enjoy this site.. it looks good.

AP story on Apple "virus" very late, overhyped, and innaccurate

A recent front page Digg story, (which has since been buried), reported that "Macs are Virus Targets" - this report was based on a 3-month old story that wasn't then. Get the inside scoop here.

Totally agree!

Restaurant Review (This is long) -- Part 3 of Hawaii

I'll try and post as many links as I can in here, so you can see the restaurant stuff itself. I'm pretty unbiased when it comes to restaurants, so I'll try and write it as general as possible.

Okay.. so in absolutely no order whatsoever.

1) Cheesecake Factory -- 2301 Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki
This was great. We ate there twice, both times dinner, and both times was excellent. I had the Orange Chicken one night, and my wife and I shared a different meal another another night (can't remember what it was). The Chicken was excellent. Everything from the bar was great, and the Dessert was excellent as well. I recommend either "ADAM'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP FUDGE RIPPLE", "TIRAMISU CHEESECAKE", or "TOBLERONE® SWISS ALMOND CHEESECAKE". All were excellent. Wait staff was great. 5 Stars.

2) Duke's Canoe Club -- Inside the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Lower Lobby.
Excellent as well. I recommend the Australian Lobster Tail, the Wings, the Quesadilla, and for Dessert, you HAVE to get the Hula Pie. However, it is not for the faint of heart. It's GOOD, and HUGE. (So is the lobster. It's gigantic). The wait staff kinda sucked here. But I have eaten there in the past, and it was good, so I think it's just the one guy we had. 5 Stars.

3) Dave and Busters -- 1030 Auahi St. (Also known as Ward Center)
Ate there for Lunch. I think all the Dave and Busters are similar. So, it makes no sense to go into detail about it. I had a Chicken Cheese-steak, it was excellent (I recommend a bit of Ranch Dressing and Tabasco sauce in it.) However, I can't compliment the wait staff here enough, the dude who waited on us was awesome. Remembered everything the first time. 5 Stars.

4) Shore Bird Restaurant -- Inside the Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Kalia Road.
This was okay. Ate there for breakfast and lunch. The food was medicore. Breakfast was overpriced, and the wait staff really sucked. 2 stars.

5) Breakers Restaurant -- 66250 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa, HI. (Kamehameha is pronounced "Kuh may huh may huh", and Haleiwa is pronounced "Hall ey eva")
Great. Ate there for lunch. It's a little surfers hole in the wall type of place, great wings. I had a pulled "Patacchia's Kalua Pork Sandwich". My wife had their wings. I recommend both. Great wait staff. 4 stars. (it is a hole in the wall, wear a t-shirt and shorts -- you should be wearing these anyway..)

6) Ocean Terrace -- Inside the Sheraton Waikiki
Stay away. Lots of food. Mostly cold, not cooked, the waiters hardly speak english (japanese), we had the buffet. It was not very good. Dessert was the best part. Roaches were crawling along the floor. WAAAy to expensive. 1 star.

Update: I actually took the time to voice a complaint to Sheraton about this. They promptly refunded my full total. So, I have to give them credit. This is what they had to say:
We recently received your comments of the dining experience you received at The Ocean Terrace Restaurant in The Sheraton Waikiki Hotel. I would like to personally apologize for not meeting your dining expectations, particularly on an occasion such as your third wedding anniversary. I will pass on all of your comments regarding the food to our Executive Chef, and will also follow up with our staff to properly identify your needs and overall dining experience while you were here with us. We look forward to addressing these areas of concern to ensure proper service levels are met for all future customers.

Because we were unable to accomplish our goal of a wonderful dining experience for you and your wife, I would like to take this opportunity to reimburse you for your dinner on that evening. We have located the charges on your [credit card] of $xx.xx and will be applying a credit to your account. All though this may not fully make up for your experience, our hope is that you will once again offer us the opportunity to serve you in the future.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any more questions or comments and I will be happy to assist you. From the staff and management of The Ocean Terrace Restaurant at The Sheraton Waikiki, we want to wish you a pleasant year, and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you.


7) Cheeseburger Waikiki -- Downtown Waikiki, Kalakaua Ave.
It was "okay", nothing to write home about. Your typical "gourmet" burger joint. Wait staff was a bit slow, but the drinks from the bar were excellent. My wife got bitten by some kind of either ant or mosquitos while we were there, so she was kinda pissed. But the food was good. 3 stars.

8) House without a key -- Inside the Halekulani Hotel. Kalia Road.
Excellent, highly recommended. Make sure and ask (the wait staff should tell you), what the catch of the day is. On the day we went it was Mahi-Mahi Fish. (Dolphin Fish, no-- not Dolphin, Dolphin fish. Mahi Mahi is Hawaiian for "Strong Strong". Although the fish wasn't very strong (which was good). Excellent flavor. My wife hat the Filet Mignon, also excellent. Wait staff, live entertainment both excellent. 5 stars.

9) Chief's Hut -- Inside the Outrigger Reef On the beach.
Again, I recommend the nachos. Ate there for breakfast and lunch x2. Both were excellent. Its right next to the pool and a waterfall. Very nice. Wait staff was also excellent. 4 stars.

I ate at various other places too, but these were the ones that stuck out in my mind. Check them out (Except for the Ocean Terrace).

Sightseeing (Part 2 of Hawaii Review)

Hawaii is beautiful. I love it there. I am going to post a bunch of pictures when I get them all done (edited, straightened...etc.)

But one thing I am mad about, is I didn't get a picture of the Oceanic flight plane they use for "Lost". I saw it, but didn't take a picture of it.

(it was only a section of the plane) But I should have grabbed a shot of it. Would have been cool.

However, in the meantime, while I am picture editing. Enjoy this nice wallpaper.

Hotel (Part 1 of Hawaii Review)

I stayed at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Now, to be fair, I stay at pretty nice hotels the majority of the time I travel, so it's kinda unfair for me to judge this hotel, but here goes.

1) The Elevators suck. Bad. They don't work efficiently, and you are constantly waiting for an elevator (I stayed in the ?Pacific? tower. (There are three). You have to swipe your card to get to the upper floors, and if you aren't quick, it will zip right past your floor (I stayed on the fifth floor). Then when the door opens, its not even lined up with the landing (elevator to floor). Kinda hazardous.

2) If you look at the above link there is a picture of the hotel room. THAT'S IT. That's the whole room, the only thing they don't show in this picture is the bathroom. Which, the majority of rooms, have a standup shower (no tub). And the shower is pretty small. Now, I am pretty skinny so that doesn't bother me, but if you are... 200 lbs+, you are screwed. It has one sink, and the toilet is not in a separate room from the rest of the bathroom.

3) If you look at the above link you will see a nice view of diamond head out the window. Caution, there are about, three rooms that have this view. If you are booked to stay here you better check which tower you are booked in, because if you aren't booked in the Diamond Head Tower, with a Diamond Head view, you either get a view of the street, or the building next to you. Horrible. BTW, the Diamond head tower? Completely under renovation. You can't stay there currently.

4) The "Shore Bird" Restaurant in the Hotel is okay. The breakfast buffet is a bit overpriced for what it is. But it was pretty good.

5) The "Chiefs' Hut" Restaurant in the Hotel was much better. Right next to a waterfall pool, this was very nice. I recommend the Nachos.

6) Every night they have live entertainment in the lobby. Which is pretty cool (BTW, I think just about every hotel has live entertainment), but there is a blind guy that plays bass. He is awesome. He plays the left hand reverse fingered, (from the top), and it is pretty cool. Good singer too.

7) Chief's Hut Bar, There is a bar there near the live entertainment. It's pretty good, although one night, the automatic blender was broken. Apparently the bar tenders aren't good enuff to actually use a REAL blender, so if the automatic blender is broken, no frozen drinks for you. Although the drinks, (when the blender worked) were very good, and well decorated.

8) There is a Starbucks and a Jamba Juice in the lobby. Both are good.

9) Hotel Internet -- okay. You have to watch the outrigger on this one. They pulled a fast one. There is FREE INTERNET ACCESS at this hotel, however, you have to get a code from the desk. If you don't get a code, you have to pay like 10 dollars a day. GET A CODE. They don't tell you that you need one, and they don't offer to give you one. You have to physically go ask. The Internet access is spotty at best, (I had to go out on the balcony, it's wireless.)

10) Pool -- The pool appeared nice, however it is the ONLY pool. I am used to hotels and resorts where they have a general pool, then there is a pool for adults only. There is only one pool. Therefore.. lots of kids.

11) Beach -- I sat on the beach with my wife the whole time. Very nice. Two lounge chairs and umbrella for the day, 30 bucks. Not too bad. (that's about the standard price up and down the beach) I recommend you go down the beach to the Sheraton Waikiki. The stand is run by the same guy (look for an older gentleman with white hair, very nice guy), the beach is a bit more secluded and quieter. Not as many people around, and peace and quiet. The stand sits back a bit and has a blue awning.

12) Fairfield. Now. Last but not least. Fairfield. I am a fairfield member, (I have a timeshare), and all these people want to do is sell you a timeshare. They hawk to anyone all day at any point. RIGHT in the lobby, you can't get around them. They are annoying as <insert expletive here>

Good time tho. Overall, the room sucked, but really... how much time do you spend in the hotel?

Recommendations? Stay in the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. I have stayed there before too, it is MUCH nicer.
