New haircut, new looks!

Today I had a meeting with an old friend of mine, who I have not seen in about a year. It was great to see her again. She looked really good, just like always! Due to some complications with her health, her boss, and some new laws implemented by the U.S. Customs, she had quit her job as a customs broker at UPS. Now she is going to beautician’s school, where she is working on her beautician's license. It is something to do as a back-up plan and some extra income, until things get back in line.

Since I gave myself a haircut few weeks ago, my hair had grown to the point where it just looked like I had just got out of bed. Irrelevant of what point in the day it was, it just looked pressed on one side, pushed up on the other, and simply going in all directions. So, we had a laugh about it at my expense, but she was right, I needed a haircut. We were outside her school, so she just asked me to come in for a haircut, so I did. There were 7 or 8 other students watching her work on my fur. LoL. She was showing them how to do clipper fading. I also had two other women work on my hair and on top of it I also received a nice head massage. Woo Hoo

Now my head and face look more round. Before, because of my hair pointing in all directions, and mainly looking like a mohawk, my face looked more elongated. I can not complain, she did great job both with the haircut and the styling. My hair looks awesome now, and I have received a lot of compliments on it. Heh, few people commented that the style makes me look more like an American boy. I took some pictures. Once they are developed, I will add them to the gallery and also update this entry with links to them. I will have before and after, also.

I love my new looks.

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…
