Get of the phone asshole, your sons are about to drown.

Amanda and I spend last weekend at Kalahari resorts' Wisconsin location. In their indoors park they have a lazy river, the dept of which varies from 1 foot and 9 inches to little over 3 feet, and at places the current is actually fast. As Amanda and I were floating down the river we came by an on/off location and there were two little boys that had just entered the "lazy" river. At that location the current was picking up and it swept the boys away from the stairs. As they lost control, and because the ledge was too high for them to grab onto, panic was becoming apparent. I stopped and stopped them from further floating away. I asked them if they wanted to get out. The affirmative answer was more than obvious. As I picked them up to carry them out, I looked up and their dad was walking by the ledge, talking on this f*ing mobile. The guy was there the whole time, he saw what happened before I became involved. Even after I had already engaged them he never reacted to their panic, neither did he acknowledged what I did for his sons. Even after I helped them out of the water he simply started walking with them back to wherever their belongings were. This douche never got off his mobile, nor did he even interrupted his conversation to say something to me or at the least to ask his sons if they were OK.

  1. What, no ass beating for the dad?

  2. As appealing as it might have been, there were few factors preventing it:

    1. It wouldn't have been appropriate in front of his sons. As big of a douche that he was/is, boys still need a male figure, who teaches, protects and shows them how to accomplish things. In this case, I don't know how much of the above this guys was accomplishing. In any case, administering a beat down on this guy might have had negative effects on his boys' psyche.
    2. I would have been arrested for assault.
    3. End of vacation, out of the resort.
    4. Just as important as #1, my wife wouldn't have appreciated use being removed from the resort and having to deal with the cops.

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: https://github.com/thetitan/sourcecodedna.git. 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…
