New design coming up.

I have finally started working on a new theme design for my web site, which I will apply through WordPress. I have decided to call the theme Ruby Red. I like the red color, and my web site used to be in red before I upgraded WP to 1.5. The Ruby Red theme will only apply to pages other than my blog. That way the blog will appear to be completely separate section of the web site.

Right now I am just using a basic layout. There are no bells and whistles, nothing fancy. It is all set up just enough so it will provide the site content and still be able to display it as if it was separate from the blog. The reason why am doing that is through WP I will be able to manage the content a lot quicker and easier. Other wise I will have to create a separate SQL database, populate it and do all kinds of other things. Right now my time is occupied by other elements, thus I am taking a shortcut and integrating my web site with WP. As a result WP becomes my CMS (content management system).

Let's just see what comes out of my work. It is all an experiment. If it workers out – good, I will continue to use it and customize it. If it does not, I will just have to make everything separate as I had it before. There is no reason why it should not work. I have seen it done on many other web sites, which utilize WordPress as CMS.

Once I am done with the theme design, I will start work on a home page. I already have the layout sketched in my mind. After that, I will just have to play with the .htaccess configuration to have the home page display and not the blog page. Once that is done, I am in business. Woooo Hoooo

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…
