They wear what?!?

Tonight Amanda and I went out to dinner at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant with her friend Bobby and his cousin Pat. As the evening progresses and we talk about all kind of things, Pat told us something, which once again gave me a reason to wonder at the things people do.

Pat told us that the son of a guy he works with wears girls jeans. Many of you, of course, would say that there is nothing wrong with that. Yeah, if the kid is GAY! No, he is not gay. Apparently that is a new stile, and he is not the only one participating. The rest of his guy classmates are doing it, too.


Yes, that was our reactions, also. Pat's coworker had told him that he cannot imagine his son anymore without wearing girls jeans. Now, personally I think there is something majorly wrong in both of these cases! First been that the kid is wearing girls close, and second that his father allows him to do so. My guess would be that he does not really give a damn what his son does. I, on the other hand, would raise a storm if I saw my son wearing something like that. If he is, he better be part of a play at school, and not the fairy.

A new stile, a new trend – to wear girls jeans. WTF!!! I know that girls wear guy's boxers, but that to some of us is sexy. That does not mean that guys need to start wearing girls pants. That is NOT sexy. Or maybe it is, maybe that is why they are doing it. Girls their age like it. Younger kids, different way of thinking, less interest in issues outside their social status or “coolness level”.

I thought I was seeing plenty of odd things as I drive through the city on my way back from work every day, but I think the first time I see something like this, it would be on top of my Huuu, WT Heck list for a while.

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…
