You don't always need #jquery for event delegation. Vanilla #JavaScript might be plenty all on its own.
Today we're going to listen to some buttons from a parent element, and we're not going to use jQuery. We're going to use vanilla JavaScript. I still love me some jQuery, of course, but we don't gai...

This is a techie post. I wrote a thing about doing #javascript stuff on resize, and adding tasks to the resize function later.
For the past good long while, I've been using a throttled function to do various JavaScript chores when the browser fires a resize event. It's a good way to correct the heights of things or add a c...

Finnea was Kray-Kray All Day, so I took her out with me. At the end, she had an impressive amount of random particles of dirt and other assorted materials all over her belly. We had fun, though. And more importantly, she's tired. #puggle   #running

Happy Easter, everyone.

When she's sleepy, you can actually get an in-focus picture of her. #puggle

Dr. Mack adds value to the Internet once again. Be sure to click through to the sites linked, especially the time-lapse video.
 
Despite appearances, this is NOT an exploding star. It's actually much cooler than that -- it's a "light echo." Years ago (from our perspective), the star at the center flared up hundreds of thousands of times its usual brightness. While the flare was brief, the consequences are astonishing.

The star is cocooned in shells of gas and dust, most likely sloughed off by the star itself earlier in its life, as a stellar wind or a minor explosion. The flare from the star travelled out in all directions, illuminating increasingly more distant shells of gas. When the gas lights up, we can see it, giving us an illusion of an expanding bubble. The video linked here shows a timelapse over four years of Hubble Space Telescope observations. It gives us an astonishing glimpse of the structure of these beautiful tendrils of gas and dust. Check it out!

Why haven't I been using #DocumentFragments in my #JavaScript all this time?
Test your JavaScript, CSS, HTML or CoffeeScript online with JSFiddle code editor.

Tried to make photo albums for a business page, and it's infuriating. +Google+  lets you create the albums, but you can't see them unless you share a post publicly while using the share UI to add them to an album. Assuming you've dug up enough information to get that far, you wind up in an additional world of annoyance.

You can't pull photos from albums to use in your food/drink business photos. And you can't manage the albums or delete the photos. And you can easily get duplicates which cannot be deleted. All of the options aren't there, and it's different from managing regular Google+ photos. Business Pages get weird about photos.

Apparently the functionality is there, but you aren't supposed to use it. You're not supposed to have albums of product photos on your business page. You're just supposed to post in a stream like with Facebook.

I'm going to just hazard a guess that this is a side-effect of the move from Picassa to Google+ and that it will eventually be sorted out after we've all found other solutions.

Smugmug? I don't know much about it other than it's yet another photo-sharing site that some friends of mine like...

It's very cold outside. Very cold. When I first woke up I tried to convert to Celcius to make myself feel better, but it backfired.

No more math before coffee.

Work
Occupation
Web Developer
Skills
I work with HTML5 and JavaScript, with a healthy dose of CSS and jQuery. I prefer to design with a mobile-first approach, so the site I'm working on can be viewed properly on multiple devices.
Employment
  • Auto Europe
    Web Developer, 2013 - present
    Working on the front-end, mostly. Helping to keep the site going and to develop new stuff.
  • L. L. Bean
    Web Developer, 2012 - 2013
    6-month contract, working on standardized social media buttons and custom login functionality.
  • Country Home Products

  • Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company
    Web Developer, 2011 - 2012
    12-month contract. Content maintenance and site enhancement for the Internet Marketing Team. Extensive use of HTML 5, CSS, CSS Media Queries, JavaScript and jQuery.
  • Candy.com
    Graphic Designer, 2010 - 2011

  • Spin 350
    Web Consultant, 2010 - 2010
    5-month contract. Assisted with content migration to a Sitecore CMS from a pre-existing internal site at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. This required extensive knowledge of HTML, and familiarity with Sitecore.
  • Hard Copy
    Production Manager, 2009 - 2010
    Similar to my time with FedEx Office, but in a much smaller shop. Deadlines required lots of multi-tasking, since the machines were smaller than I had been used to. Scheduled production, ran oversized prints, and generally kept things going.
  • Starbucks
    Barista, 2007 - 2009
    I was contracted at the College of Charleston, so I took a job at Starbucks. 20 hours per week and you can get medical coverage. It was a fun job, and an excellent company with good people.
  • College of Charleston
    Technology Coordinator, 2006 - 2009
    Web design for various departments at the college. Created a Microsoft Access database to track orders and inventory and revenue for the CofC Copy Center. The work was varied, and the people are wonderful.
  • Various Print and Copy Shops
    Graphic Designer, 1999 - 2006
    Worked mostly as a graphic designer, but I also ran some production and finishing equipment. I also worked as a Production Scheduler for a few places.
  • FedEx Office
    Copy Consultant, 1996 - 1999
    I did just about everything in the shop, from running all production machines at once to oversize outputs and foamcore mountings. I worked there when they were Kinko's, and then FedEx Kinko's. It's how I paid my tuition, so I have some good memories there.

Got born, grew up, and spent most of it talking.
Education
  • Midlands Technical College
    Commercial Graphics, 1996 - 1998
     I was trained to run a printing press as well as design for one. Print and Web are total opposites in some ways, but they do have some overlap.
  • Trident Technical College
    Visual Arts, 2004 - 2007
    Various courses taken in web programming and visual design. They didn’t have a web development program, but they did offer some design classes and one or two programming classes.

Nice baked goods. I'd put them up against any other bakery, gluten free or otherwise. My wife's allergy makes no difference here. We can just enjoy a coffee and some goodies. Glad we found the place. :-)
