Gmail Notifier 0.4

There was a new version release of the GMail extension for FireFox today. I tried upgrading mine through that Mozilla update application but I received some error. Like usual the Mozilla update server is generating errors and out of sync. :mad:Ahhh Grrrr:mad: I just had to go to the author’s web site and download the new extension file from there. Like usual!!!

Version 0.4 has only three new features:

  • Now uses a JavaScript XPCOM component. This means that all windows are now in sync.

  • [REQUEST] Option to reset counter to 0 when opening Gmail using the notifier.

  • [REQUEST] Opening Gmail in new tab option now focuses the new tab.

  • Personally I would not have release a new version just of these changes. Although, having all windows in sync makes sense and it useful to have.

    After I upgraded the extension, the browser crashed bunch of times. :???: It is working fine now. I think it just needed to be restarted few times! LoL

    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…
