There are a few snaps from this weekend here.

Tim D arrived Friday and was fed more than enough from the local Chinese, together with two bottles of wine between the three of us before we walked it off back to ours.

Reseting a Flex DataGrid's dataProvider when using a filterFunction

Submitted by Falken on Tue, 04/06/2010 - 15:12

It's fairly common to have a filterFunction applied to the ArrayCollection you are displaying in a DataGrid, such as to hide deleted items:


I was also allowing users to edit and remove the displayed items; so needed a quick way for them to 'reset' all their unsaved changes, which lead to a couple of gotchas.

Mylyn Reports

Submitted by Falken on Fri, 01/15/2010 - 21:40

I'm always saying how good the Mylyn plugin for Eclipse is, in keeping the UI focused on the task at hand.

Because it integrates with your issue tracker, the trackers reports can be used if you want a summary of what you did, or what's still left to do.

But what if you aren't using an issue tracker in Mylyn, just the 'local' repository, thus getting a lot of the benefits without needing to set up anything else ? How do you get the reports then ?

Confirmation of relation

Submitted by Wheezy on Fri, 01/15/2010 - 19:49

Having just received the certificates I ordered from the Isle of Wight, I can now confirm the Chivertons are related to the Brown, Goodchild, Godwin, Gates, Sury, Arnold, Stacey, Clarke, Regis and Luxford families.


Thank you Gill for bring this line back to the 1750s as well.


The certificates that create the link are attached.

More Certificates

Submitted by Wheezy on Sat, 01/02/2010 - 17:37

Here is yet more certificates to be uploaded, this should be the last batch of certificates.

For anyone who is interested I do also have the marriage certificate between the families of Todd and Parker, but they are too large to upload so contact me if you want to see them.

More Family Tree info

Submitted by Wheezy on Sat, 01/02/2010 - 16:50

I have just spent over 2 hours updating and putting up the Family tree on a wall.  If you go to the Gallery, then Poynton House, then Family Tree you can see how large it is already.

We now have more history on the Chiverton line, including the Surname Brown and Goodchild.

I will shortly be uploading more certificates, this time from the Dawson and Ashton lines, along with some photos of these lines and the Chiverton line.

Happy research to everyone.
