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.

It's a sweet JavaScript article using Star Trek Original Series for the examples. I'm in Geek Heaven.
Jonathan discusses JavaScript architecture patterns of the 23rd century and what the future of JavaScript holds for the 24th century.” JavaScript applications have grown in size and complexity for the last several years. More and more single page applications have hit the market, and demands for that type of experience have increased to the point …

Looking through some JavaScript I wrote maybe six months ago, and I found this comment in the default case of a switch statement:

// There is no default. Only Zuul.

In my line of work, I think about this sketch all the time. It's a bit too close to the truth, though.

Want to broadcast important personal information to the Internet without encryption? Your local law enforcement agency has just the software for that.

Use ComputerCOP to (not) protect your children from the Internet!
 
Meet ComputerCOP, the insecure “Internet Safety” software that local police hand out to families.
ComputerCOP in Maricopa County, Arizona For years, local law enforcement agencies around the country have told parents that installing ComputerCOP software is the “first step” in protecting their children online.

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!

Snow and sleet are nature's ways of saying that we never should have given up having four points of contact with the ground.

True, but I'm more focused on the 30-pound perpetual motion machine that pulls me in random directions in the mornings. SHE has no trouble staying off of her back.

I've considered buying skates and just letting her decide where we go.

Ahh, our funny little Whovian brains. It's bigger on the inside. No wonder we tend to overthink things. I still see a Dalek. Hahaha!

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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

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. :-)
