Another golden moment for TV and the country’s scientist.

During the noon news today, once again I was informed of something obvious, which someone spent money on just to prove what we have known for a really long time. It was just another news announcement on TV with its double purpose! This one informed me that some scientists in Milwaukee have found that the size of your waistline may help determining your chances for heart attacks and other heart and breathing related problems.

I will pause for a moment here………. OK, ready? Here it is – well fucking DURHHH!!! Of course the bigger the waistline the worst it is. The more body fat there is the greater the pressure on your heart and lungs. Your body has to work harder to carry all that weight. Your lungs have to work harder to enrich the blood with oxygen, and your heart has to work harder to push that blood through the fat jammed body and cholesterol filled veins.

So, in conclusions - any seine person, who does not have to be an MD, knows that the more body fat the worst it is for your health. No need for someone to make it sound like they have just discovered it.


I have a feeling that if I keep seeing such announcements on TV and I keep writing about them I will have to create a category just for them. I am starting to wonder if there is more than just time filler and “look we care for the people, lets show something positive on TV” behind these useless announcements. Maybe it is just horn blowing, reputation hyping, unnecessary new product creation, unreasonable price raising scheme.

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…
