-(MP)- site progress.

The news database is up and running. Finally. It too a while, lol. It happens when you are learning PHP and SQL at the same time. But the database and the pages are up and coded. I still am going to improve on the news entry page, give it more features and make the data submitted to the database more flexible.

Before I do that, I still have few other things to work on like members, battles and upcoming databases and forms.

I am getting better at it. :) Quote from the -(MP)- site news:
The web site is back. As many have had the chance to notice, he site have been redesigned and back. There are still some sections, like battle record and members, missing. But overall the site is 90% completed. Woo Hoo. News db and linking problems are resolved, something which will make Gilgamesh very happy.

Now that the news section is completed, next on my agenda is to create the battle record and members sections, followed by adding search feature to the site. When the above three are done, I will be working on improving some parts of the site and their usability. It will be mainly in the background, so you won't be noticing too many changes on the outside other than facelifts here and there.

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…

Balloon Flowers of 2014

We have Balloon Flowers (platycodon grandiflorus) in a half barrow pot. They are one of my favorite flowers that we have around the house. Simply because of how the flower forms. It starts as a small ball, which slowly grows into the shape of a hot air balloon, and once it opens it looks like it had exploded.

I planted the flowers from the pictures above about seven years, ago.

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…
