Does anyone know how to scale an svg with CSS so it preserves the image data?
Setting "width" directly cuts the image off, not scale it down.

Watching The Hunt for Red October in memory of Tom Clancy.

Gonna pick up a hardbound copy of my favorite of his books, Red Storm Rising.

Rest in peace.

People are despicable. We need to be teaching kids to stand up to bullies like the boys in this girl's class. No one should be felt made ashamed of because of their gender (or skin color, etc) and harassment like this should never be tolerated.



Teaching VB, though? Now THAT'S something to be ashamed of.
 
"To my daughter's high school programming teacher"

When my daughter got home from the first day of the semester, I asked her about the class. "Well, I'm the only girl in class," she said. Fortunately, that didn't bother her, and she even liked joking around with the guys in class. My daughter said that you noticed and apologized to her because she was the only girl in class. And when the lessons started (Visual Basic? Seriously??), my daughter flew through the assigments. After she finished, she'd help classmates who were behind or struggling in class.

Over the next few weeks, things went downhill. While I was attending SC '12 in Salt Lake City last November, my daughter emailed to tell me that the boys in her class were harassing her. "They told me to get in the kitchen and make them sandwiches," she said. I was painfully reminded of the anonymous men boys who left comments on a Linux Pro Magazine blog post I wrote a few years ago, saying the exact same thing. ❞

Some dick who was supposed to move a fallen tree to the back of our property decided to leave us something extra.
