+Jake Archibald Theoretical question for you. Given a page with 1,000's of instances of an element using a single class (it's a HUGE report in HTML). Any reason it would be worse to change rules for that class in the actual stylesheet than an approach like jQuery to remove then add a different class?

Assume for the moment that the complexity of the selectors is a non-issue and the rule change is very simple?

Said another way, having a class such as .myContainer which applies a color, then changing the color rule in the stylesheet as opposed to having to find every instances of .myContainer.somecolor, removing .somecolor and adding .anothercolor.

I've always been aware that the joys of parenthood are ephemeral, but I heard a story once about a mom that would take steps to avoid the bedtime routine one of her kids wanted by telling them, "I'll be there in a bit" knowing she wouldn't be. One day, she overheard that child telling their father that he stopped asking mom because she never came and as you can imagine, it broke her heart. Since then, I've been acutely aware that any day my son might not ask to kiss my nose as I tuck him in. Then before I know it, he won't ask me to tuck him in. Then he won't want me to tuck him in. Eventually, my girls will no doubt follow suit and that though is almost as saddening to me as the idea of losing someone close. It helps me appreciate so many of the little things that I otherwise wouldn't.

Today my wife shared this with me and I had a good cry as a result. Being a father in 2016 doesn't feel anything like what I was led to believe it would be by the culture I've grown up in (and my father wasn't around so I didn't have a very clear picture to begin with) :)

This also helps my understand why parents harass their children to "give us grandchildren". It's a way to regain some of that joy for them while also knowing their children will receive it too even though they don't get know it's there to be had.

Listening to Bus Stop by The Hollies and this occurs to me.

Me: Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say

Wife: Can I talk to you? So the other day I was at the bus stop over in Mesa. You know, the one..... So anyway, I was reading this post on Facebook. Oh ya! You wouldn't believe..... So anyway, there was this woman there. It was so sad! The rain was pouring down ........ so I said to her

Need I say more? ;)  +Jessica Richardson

Story
Tagline
Man of many trades, master of very few. Father of 3, husband, entrepreneur, CTOx2, student, lover, US Marine, and more.
Introduction
I've been involved in I.T. at least part-time since 1993 and full-time at an enterprise level since 1999 (USMC warehouse management systems). Currently I'm involved in virtually every aspect of maintaining a production network and related system critically responsible for $1m+ of business revenue (to include software/DB architecture and development). If my current venture doesn't pan out, I hope to find a future with Google, perhaps as a Developer Advocate where my vast knowledge-base could be well utilized and I would be exposed to fresh ideas (I love learning and sharing). I'm a true but tolerable INTJ (see Jung - Myers-Briggs or Keirsey Temperament). As is the case with most INTJ's, I don't respond well to people being mentally lazy, but I'm not antagonistic to the extent that INTJ's are stereotyped to be.
Bragging rights
Father of 3 amazing children (3rd arrives very soon), US Marine, CTO vantage.tv, CTO AZPrep and Happy to be alive!
Education

Their hours said they were open till 6pm. Drove all the way from S. Chandler, was signing the waiver and THEN the employee who greeted me said, "you're here for *****'s party right?" I said no, then she said, "I'm sorry, but ...." then "We tell people on our website to call first" as if that someone excused the situation or made my kids feel better. I had to tell me 3 kids that we had to leave and it doesn't take much to imagine how a 5yo and 3yo reacted. Even my infant who'd been sitting in the van for 35 mins was upset to be getting right back in. Finding them closed would have been one thing, but this is inexcusable and they won't be seeing if again. The issue and response makes if very clear that management is poor and given my nervousness to begin with, I would now have to seriously question the rest of the idea (safety, cleanliness, etc).

Don't know what all the complaints are about. It's not like they're greedy. As a veteran, i paid $18 for my wife and myself, then my 3 children, 5 and under were free. For that, we had lots of safe viewing options at various points on the crater rim, insider and out as well as the museum. It's a nice facility and the staff different harass me even 25 minutes after closing as i got amazing shots of the sunset. I'll go again i expect.
