eBay Ad Lists Manhattan Judge for Sale

The eBay Ad Lists Manhattan Judge for Sale article is one heck of a story. It goes to show that people will do anything to win or out of despair. Yet, I am going to praise this artist’s creativity and unique attempt to help herself and to improve her situation. Although I am pretty sure that at the end all this stunt did was to push the scales against her for the same reason she acted like she did - the will for self preservation.

I would like to point out that today’s access to the media and her ability to control the mass’s opinions provides many opportunities for individuals to do so. It offers a variety of options and tools. This particular case is an example of that. It goes to show that one person can easily touch thousands. As a result the mass media can make a mockery of it and still produce the effect desired in one form or another.

I must say this is a new way to nudge Justice one way or another. It only goes to show, once again, that Justice is not invincible. It still relies on individuals and their feelings and personal biases. For it to work in its true form, it must be served by independent people, with open minds and who truly believe that one case is in its own world, and it should not be affected by events which have nothing to do with it originally. In this sense perfection can be achieved and the system can operate in its ideal form and thought.

If I were the judge I would laugh and praise the artist on her creative ways.

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…
