Busy with Life.

Hi everyone.

There has not been any activity on my part on the web site and this blog for over three weeks now. It is not that I am done with this, I am far from it. The thing is that I have been busy with work and lots and lots of traveling. To add to the above, I am moving into a new apartment, four times the size of my current one. Woo Hoo!!! The sweet deal of that is that my rent will only grow with half of what I am paying for my current apartment. The sweeter deal is that my sweetie is moving in with me.

I guess, what I am trying to say is - there will be more of me tinkering with the designs and plenty of new posts to the blog ones things settle in a week or two!?! This entry is just to tell you all that due to a hectic adult life, I have not had any time to do much of anything on the computer. There will be more, though. There will be bunch of entries posted with a back date, so make sure you read back.

And, it is late now, but I was not home nor near a computer. To be exact, I was helping to clean the new place, because the woman living there before was DAMN dirty.

Happy Independence Day to all.

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…
