Yeah, what your mom’s been saying!!!

Do you ever watch TV and you hear someone say something or make an announcement and you wonder: “What the Fuck are these people on? Durrhhhhh!!!!!!”?

I was watching the news today. Apparently some Swiss scientist figured out that “eating peas, bananas and carrots is good for you.” It is supposed to help prevent something. WoW You have got to be kidding me. Something my mom and other people around me have told me for pretty much all my life and of course people have known for centuries.

Is spending money on something like that really necessary? Yes, I know they were researching which diseases and disorders they can prevent or help with, but it is so damn obvious. All fruits and vegetables are good for you. Yes, every vegetable and fruit works better on one or few diseases, but that does not mean that people should eat only specific ones. Especially, only when they have to due to some illness. They should eat all and at any time! They were provided to living beings as food and source of vitamins.

This situation is just like the many times I have heard news announcements about how a glass of wine or some other alcoholic drink a day or week is good for the body and mind. Wow, Durrhhhh, once again. Cultures around the world have known and have been doing these for centuries. Little bit of something is good, but overdoing is always bad. Even with vitamins, taking few is good, but taking lots and lots is bad for the body. It can not use them all, so they start building up and you are beginning to do the opposite of what you are trying. As more and more of these chemicals are collecting inside of you, you are poisoning your body and yourself.

I just thought of this. I figured out why the news make such obvious announcements. They use them for time fillers. Among everything bad they have time for, they want to show that there is good and that they are caring. In such times they are taking care of two challenges: one - they are showing something good, and two - they are showing that they care by using a health related topic.

Haaaha <= just felt the need to do that!

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…
