Site and Blog additions.

In the last few days I have been messing around with the code and different hacks/plug-ins for WordPress. Some of the things I have added to the blog are print post option. It can be seen on the right at the end of every entry. I have also added a poll and search word highlighting. Whenever someone arrives to the blog from a search engine or they use the search on the blog page the words the person was searching for will appear highlighted throughout the page. I am working on adding WAP feed to the blog. This will enable people to brows and read my blod on their cell phone. I also added a SPAM blocker. After my blog was SPAMed with comments from some gambling site, I was forced to look for some solution. The solution came in the form of WPBlacklist. From what I read on the WordPress forums, a lot of people’s blogs were SMAPed by the same bot. Well, after implementing the SPAM filter, knock on wood, I have not had any problems with unwanted SPAM comments.

I am pleased with the way things are coming out. I am experimenting with different looks and colors for the blog. I also have hand full of backgrounds I want to use as well. But, depending on how other parts of the blog come out looking, I might or might not use them.

In regards to my web site, there are few web pages I have to finish and it should be complete, for now. I will improve and add more to it in the future, when I actually have something to add to it. I just do not want to have supposedly existing sections on it, which lead to nowhere because those parts are non existent. I want to start mapping and programming, again. I think the easiest way to get into mapping would be by designing some maps for WarCraft III. I also want to design some apps for Linux. It seems like to get back in the swing of things I will have to start by reworking some of my old C++ programs both for Windows and Linux. It will help me with refreshing my memory and skills. If I get some time and actually start working on the preceding two, I am sure they would make a great addition to my web site. :) But for now, whatever free time I have I have to use it to work on the Jus2 web site.

Now back to finishing up my work on the couple of pages left to do.

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…
