Row Filler Followup
By Tim Dexter-Oracle on Oct 16, 2009
Since my post last week or was it the week before. The weeks are blurring by at the moment. Last week, I could swear it was warm and sunny here in Colorado, the fish were biting along with the mozzies and sitting on our deck you could here the 'crickets' chirping into the night. Back in July, we got nightly visits from a huge bear which I managed to capture on film. He was a sausage stealing, trash tipping pain in the butt but we were not going to argue :0)
Now its 27F, sorry 'Rest of the Worlders', I have been assimilated. Its imperial measurements for me all the way. I even know what a 'quart' is, I think in inches and cups for measuring. America is sometimes staggering in its arrogance for the rest of the world! Maybe a bit strong but you know what I mean.
Yep, its freezing cold the wind is howling, the windshield (another Americanism along with tail pipe, thats a good one) blower on the car can not keep up with the freezing rain and I have to scrape it to see. Come back Summer, maybe not the bear thou!
Anyhoo, my last post on row filling and the added requirement that I did not cover got some folks into action. Most notably, Lakshmanan and the Ice Man aka Ike Wiggins. Both of them were way ahead of me. I guess from a need, born of necessity i.e. get it done for a customer. Rather than my approach of, 'when I can find time', they have independently come up with solutions to handle the row wrapping issue I mentioned at the end of the last post.
Shout outs are due and if you use their methods, please drop a quick mail of thanks.
Lakshmanan's solution is available here. Some other great posts on EBS related tidbits (another PC'ed American term) available on his blog.
