Funniest license plate I have seen to date!

I was on my way home yesterday afternoon after meeting up with some one for the day when I saw a pretty weird license plate on someone’s car. It is here that I should say I like to entertain myself, while I am in the car, by looking for custom plates on people’s cars and observing their creativity. I am really surprised by the number of custom plates I see here on daily base compared to the number I saw when I lived in New York or when I visited in New Jersey. Here they are incredibly popular. I believe it is in direct result of the dancer population.

The plate I saw yesterday said – I SWEAT. I have one question: “why would you get such a dull license plate?” Maybe he meant it as a reflection of the vehicle he drives. It is hot, no air conditioning, he sweats. HEHE, I guess on the other hand it could be seen as a demonstration of good humor, for those who can see it. If one is coming home from work, and has had a bad day at work or due to some other factor, and he or she reads the plate it could put a cheer in their day. In my opinion, this is a great example of one person’s unselfish consideration of others and move to entertain them through the show of good sense of humor.

I had a custom plate in New York. I am thinking about getting one here, also. I have not decided on what this one will hold. I know there is a 50/50 chance of not being the same it was before. For now I am going to wait! I do like the numbers on my current one.

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…
