It is so nice to swim.

I went to Vel’s work place around noon today. He works as a repairman for an apartment complex. A huge apartment complex, consisting of five twelve or so levels interconnected buildings. He called me over to work on couple of his computers and while being there make use of the swimming pool and gym of the apartment complex.

I worked on the computers, but I was able to improve only one of them. I upgraded some of the software on it. The second computer was kaput! Vel said he will throw it out. I told him before he does that to give it to me so I can take some parts out of it. Things like the hard drive, if its size is worthy, couple of fans and the CPU’s heat syncs and maybe the CPU and the power supply.

The swimming pool was heated so the water was just like bathwater, awesome. I left my swim trunks and gym close in New York when I left so i would not have been able to enjoy either pleaser today, unless I had borrowed some shorts from Vel. I mussed out on the workout. It is OK, though. It has not been that long since I had a good workout. On the other hand, I have not had a chance to swim in few years, so I end up swimming for about 35 or so minutes. It was great, especially after being outside where the temperature was five degrees Fahrenheit. The pool was heated!:cool:

It was so nice to spend some time soaking in the water and just swimming around. The heated water was a nice surprise, also. I have not swum in a heated pool before, so that was nice. I think the warm water makes you somewhat lazy, because your body is not cold so you are not too eager to swim a lot to keep warm.

There was a sauna and a jacuzzi there as well, but I did not use either one of the. The water in the jacuzzi was running, but it was acquiring somewhat of a greenish color. Vel said the guy who maintains it was not around, and the jacuzzi itself was plugged somewhere in the pipes. Aberrantly the administration was not planning to spend the money on fixing the problem any time soon. LoL For the first 25 minutes I had the swimming hall to myself, but then some guy came in. First he hoped in the nasty jacuzzi. :???: Then he relocated himself to the sauna, which I did not use either. I was not going in there with him in it, and I did not plan on waiting for him to come out.

The day was good. I really enjoyed the swim!:grin:

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: 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…
