Found couple of old posts.

Well, I found couple of old posts in the cache of couple of search engine. But only couple, I wish there were more. The ones I found, I posted them again and adjusted the dates and time to match the originals. I did not bother looking for any caches pages of TFnet or Clan MP. TFnet, because I only had few pages, with very little content. Clan MP because the site just needed to be redesigned, needed better looks and more flexibility. No it is much smaller in size, better organized and with more flexibility.

Thumbs up for search engines’ cache. Sadly, the major search engines will brows a site at a minimum every fifteen days. Otherwise it will be considered abuse, and if the meta tags of a page are set for them to come back sooner, it will be ignored. This will result in the search engine returning to the site at even longer period, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of having the site caches regularly.

Now I back up all of my SQL databases multiple times throughout the week. And I quit using that dumb app, MS Front Page. It creates a mess with the directories structure and even bigger with the code. Now I am using Macromedia Dreamweaver. An excellent application and back ups are created every time a file is saved. Thus, I have a back up copies on my machine. No more gaffs like last time, no more complete data lose.

Format MAC Address [JavaScript]

I am currently working on a project which will allow users to register their Wi-Fi enabled, non-web browser enabled, devices on the network. These are devices like printers, Apple TV, and Xbox*. One of the data points that have to be collected from the user is the device MAC address. The project customer wants that address to be properly formatted when they see it in the support ticket.

We have several options. We can format the address either on the back-end after the form has been submitted. Or we can format it on the front end via a separate text field for each character pair, but that is too many fields to handle. A better solution is to use a single field and format the user input at the time of input or upon submit. In those cases, the former is better because the data will already be formatted when the overall form input is being validation after the user clicks the “Submit” button.

We are going to format the user input as it is being provided, thus having proper data when vali…

How to setup Coda 2 to push to GitHub?

Setting up a new site in Coda 2 and cloning a GitHub remote repository is not that big of a deal. Where you will most likely run into problems is when you try to push your changes to the GitHub remote repository. Below I will show you how to update the Git config file in your local repository so you do not run into one of the following errors:
git push failed remote: Remote anonymous access to repository deniedgit push origin master Username: fatal: Could not read passwordThe GitHub repository address I am going to use is that of Source Code DNA: https://github.com/thetitan/sourcecodedna.git. I will assume that you have already setup your Coda 2 site profile and cloned your repository, you have made some changes, and now you are ready to push those changes to your projects GitHub repo.

SNOOZ: Sound. Sleep.

I was on the Snooz Kickstarter page today, revisiting the project’s details and timeline progress. The device, which is a white-noise generating machine, recently became available for pre-order. Snooz is meant to be an alternative to having a TV or a stationary fan running at bed time. In my case, I bought it for my wife so we can get the TV out of the bedroom.

Whilst on the comments page I read the following comment, posted recently by Ken Tran:

I'm not a fan of the new fabric design. ...
I must disagree. If you take a look at the original design, which is all plastic and no style, I must say it is fugly. It is all utilitarian - not something I rally want to look at or see when I walk into the room. The final design, seen on the right, is something that beacons to be explored, looked at, utilized.

I am a big fan of Bang & Olufsen. They use fabric from Kvadrat in their line of products. Incorporating soft materials like fabric or leather in something which is meant to be place…
