What a night!

I walked in Blockbuster to pick up a movie for tonight. When I was checking out the little one gives me attitude. I am like: fine, it is not like it is the first time she has done that. She does it every damn time I am in there. I walk out and guess what I see on my car? A dent on the driver’s side, right up front, both on the metal and the bumper. It was served with scrapes and red paint from the car of the dumb ass who fucking does not know how to pull in or out of a HUDGE parking space. Now every time I go over a bump or anything else that causes my car to go up and down the metal scrapes against my NEW tires. I should have parked in my usual place, far side, where people are too lazy to walk from, thus they do not park there.

What pisses me off more is that in this state and I am sure in the rest of them, there is a law, which stats: if you hit a car and cause damage, leave a not with your name, number and license plate, if you cannot find the damaged car’s owner. It is on the damn drive’s test. You cannot tell me that that person could not find me, because the Blockbuster I go to is isolated, it is by itself on the street. It has its own parking lot. There were 3 other cars there.

That dumb ass, out of four vehicles, had to hit mine, and not even have the guts to come back in the store and say anything. Now that I think about it, they probably did not even come in the store. If they hit my car as they were coming in and they realized what they had done, they probably put it in reverse and took off.

For desert, when I was coming home, I pulled into one of the alleys which lead to my building. Some idiot thought that he is king of the road and everyone should be waiting for him to get from the other side of the block before they should do anything.
Fact - the alley is big enough for one vehicle to go through.
Fact - I was already in the alley when he was in the far end of the adjacent parking lot.
Fact - I have observed numerous of times when two vehicles are approaching each other in a tight place, each moves to the right so they can pass each other safely. If there is not enough room for one of them to move to the right but enough for the other, the second should do so and wait for the first to go through. That guy, not only that he did not move to the side so I can go through, but also sped up and tried to block me in. There was plenty of room on either side of him, he could have gone left or right, makes no difference as long as he had moved. If I had not stepped on it and squeezed my car between him and a telephone poll we would have sat there. What does he think that I am not going sit there and wait for him to move? I have all the time and patience I needed in that situation (those of you who know me, know that I have a lot, and I mean A LOT of patience). My apartment is, at the most, fifty feet from where we were. I could have left my car there and walked! On top of that I was not going to back out on the street when he is sitting on a parking lot. Oh, and when I squeezed by and he failed to block me in, he was looking at me like I had done him wrong. Well fuck you very much.

What happened, it is in the past! When I pay off this car in two years, I am going to buy a new one. This one I am either going to trade in or give away for free like my last one. And I got paid today, so yeah :) It is all good, life is good. Everything will come in its place at the right time.


  1. Sorry to hear you had a bad day! Don't worry- I'm sure things will be better tommorrow!

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…
