For my next IDAT 102 assignment we have to create a visual representation of the Arch-OS weather feed. Processing is an open source programming language with syntax similar to that of Java, this is the language that we will be using to create our visiulisation, it is well documented on their website and has a large userbase which means if you encounter a problem that you cant solve by using the documentation there will most likely be another user who is willing to help.

This code allows users to reset the passwords if they have forgotten them, the ASP.NET membership provider generates a random password which is presented to them on the page after the reset link has been clicked.
The URL parameter looks like this:
?username=username&reset=24-C7-27-F8-5D-19-45-06-13-ED-CB-D7-F2-1E-48-7C The “-” could quite easily be removed using a regular expression if you don’t like them!
Any comments or criticism welcome, I would like to improve my programming skills and techniques!

actionscriptflashflash gamesIDAT102programmingAfter doing some more research into firework games I came accross this simulation game which allows the user to set up a fireworks show with various customisable fireworks and to then view the show when they are happy with the set up. I think that the effects this game uses for the fireworks are very good and I would like to try and create a similar effect. I think that my idea for a firework game is a viable option.

favourite websitegooglereaderMy favourite website would have to be Google Reader. This is because:
The site is minimalistic and aesthetically pleasing. Easy to use. Lots of content available by RSS feed. AJAX enables a good user experience, as posts are loaded as you scroll down the page. The site is well integrated with other websites (e.g you can add new feeds to your reader page via a link on the website) I can gain access to content that interests me.
