This may be old stuff to a lot of people, but I've just mastered queues in jQuery and how to trigger the next event on completion of the current event ... without lots of horrible nested code.

see this jsFiddle for an example: http://jsfiddle.net/2xwver6f/
#jquery   #queues  
Test your JavaScript, CSS, HTML or CoffeeScript online with JSFiddle code editor.

Like me, do you dread or avoid using regular expressions in code?

No more - this awesome site analyses your input string and within a few minutes you'll be done!

Setting up inliner

This is a very useful script to compress and html page into one block of code (all js libraries and css files).  It will also compress images into base64 ... why?

... Great for mobile portfolios

Terminator Robots and AI

Interesting article on AI - it's not the robots we should be scared of, it's all those hidden systems that run our lives.

#AI #Robots
Concerns about risk coming from the development of AI have been recently expressed by many computer science researchers, entrepreneurs and scientists, making us wonder: what are we fearing?...

The reading game is about to change forever. Boston-based software developer Spritz has been in "stealth mode" for three years, tinkering with their program and leasing it out to different ebooks, apps, and other platforms.

Packed with oldie worldy charm and crammed full of antique clocks and horse brasses, this pub is a wonderful stopping off point just a few minutes off the busy A30. The menu is enormous, quick and very friendly service, and the food was fantastic!

Quiet, clean and right by the beach. Watch out for mosquitos! Difficult to get Internet access either through their Wi-Fi or mobile data.
