About yourself.

This is one of the more creative and excellently written self descriptions I have ever come across.

When I'm not teaching art, I make my own... What else? I secretly love John Denver,I've arm wrestled my mom over who can hold my baby niece next, made paintings in Irish meadows, and tossed a coin over my shoulder into the Trevi fountain in Rome.

I've eaten fried turkey testicles in Charleston, IL, chopped my hair from very long to Demi-Moore-in-Ghost short on a whim, was an extra in a movie, and played on an all boys' baseball team before there was girls' softball. I've owned an art gallery, lost an office chair race down a steep hill, and drove a $400 car which I let my students paint. I've welded stuff, worn roller skates and the occasional wig to work, sang live band Kareoke, hit a grand slam, hit the side of my garage with my car, snuck from the lawn to the front row at a sold out concert, and made a life sized portrait of myself as Jane of the Jungle.

I've laughed till I cried and vise versa, done donuts in a full sized station wagon, slept in a hammock, was a waitress in a diner, fell asleep during yoga class, skinnydipped more than once, and have not broken any bones.

I make myself laugh. I focus on "the now". My friends and family know how much I cherish them. I strive to communicate with grace - I feel great when I get fresh air and exercise - I have learned to take good care of myself and love the life I've created.

If you can relate to any of the above, we just might get along. (Or you could be insane; check into that) I hope you are funny, and are interested in many things, I hope you have been loved and can give that back to other people. I hope you are kind to your soul by giving yourself room to grow, and if I'm not the girl for you, I wish you luck in your search.

I guess being an artist helps.

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…
