Factoid for the Day: Glass Is NOT a Slow-moving Liquid.

You may have lived for field trips as a kid, looking forward to a whole day of out-of-school fun and exploring. That is, until you got started on a tour of some musty building that seemed, well, boring. Not even the tour guide's explanation of how the glass in the wavy, uneven windowpanes has slowly flowed downward over time could keep your attention.

Liquid windowpanes? No.

Rather than the (magical-sounding) slow drip of centuries, the reason old glass windows aren't perfectly even and clear is because of how they were made. Until the early-mid 1800s, most window glass was made using a process called the crown method. The glass was blown, flattened, heated and spun, yielding a sheet that was relatively cheap to produce. It was also rippled and thicker in some places than in others.

In other words, the windows looked that way when they were installed, and they look that way now. No downhill liquid flow is involved. (And if you're really wondering: Glass is an amorphous solid.

Chrome Canary: CSS Reloading Upon SASS File Save In The Developer Tools 

A few of you have been asking about a new "Auto-reload CSS.." option that appeared under Settings in Canary this week and whether it related to our work on SASS source maps. I dug up the relevant WebKit bug ticket to review.

With this change, debug info generated by SASS in CSS is parsed to find out which SASS files contributed to a stylesheet. When you make SASS file save in the Sources panel, the external CSS stylesheets affected are reloaded to update the page styles. This presumes that SASS is running in the "watch" mode.

I still need to test this out to see how much work is left, but it's a sign of fun things to come soon for all you SASS fans :)

Ticket: http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/132321 #devtools

This weekend was full of firsts! I tried oil painting for the first time. It's is still in progress but so far so good. And Doug made macarons which were challenging but came out great. And boy are they sweet!!

I know it's just a clothing store but I really love the styles here. They manage to have some trendy stuff that is still classic enough that I don't feel like I'm trying to be a hipster. I'm 28 and have found both professional, comfortable and cute clothes here. The staff is also one of the reasons I keep going back, and I live about 35 minutes away! They are not only friendly but very extremely helpful. It's like bringing your best friend to help you pick out clothes. Once some of my clothes that were up at the checkout got accidentally put back while I was finding jewelry. This could have put a serious damper on things, but the girl helped me find the items again and shel gave me 10% off my whole order! I always spend at least an hour here but I don't leave feeling like I've just gone through an enormous chore (like I usually do after shopping). One of my fav stores for sure!

Very friendly staff, nice facilities, and excellent variety of classes. I get bored with the same workout all the time so this was just what I was looking for. They offer a lot of evening and weekend classes too so I can fit it into my schedule. Carol and Chelsea are great Zumba teachers, Jannicka makes weight lifting fun, and Kim gives you some tough love in Ballet Fitness. :) Oh and spinning is really tough but Natalie manages to make it entertaining. I've really noticed a difference in the last few months that I've been getting slimmer and toned up and I only hit up 3 classes a week. All around this place gets two thumbs up!!

SO EXCITING!! We saw so many dolphins!! After being let down by Tropics Boat Tours, the nice gentlemen at Little Toots was happy to book me and my 2 friends for a Dolphin Tour. We were so disappointed by the cancelled reservation from the other company, that he even gave us a small discount and some drink tickets. Well we forgot to use the drink tickets because we were so enthralled with the boat ride and the DOLPHINS!! Not only did we see them swimming around in the water, they actually followed the boat, leaping around in the wake behind us! It was unreal, and very cool. :) So glad we did this, what a great time!

Initially I had a particularly negative experience with one of the receptionists who was rude and hung up on me. But after I communicated this to one of the relocation specialists, Karen Norman, I really felt differently. She apologized for the woman's rude behavior and said that that is not indicative of the attitude of the Chelsea Realty Group. She then spent a lot of time talking to me about Raleigh, the relocation process, and also sent me information on their relocation services. She is now helping me find a home to rent in the area and couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Thank you, Karen!!

Very Disappointing. I purchased a coupon through Google Offers for a dolphin tour for myself, my boyfriend, and our friend visiting from out of town. I made a reservation to be sure we had a spot on Sunday afternoon. When I called a few hours beforehand with a question about parking, I got an old voicemail message saying they had high call volumes and to call back later. When we arrived for the tour, we were shocked to find out that the fuel line for the boat had been broken all weekend, and the lady said "we should have received a call." Well we didn't receive a call, an email, nothing!!! Isn't this what reservations are for? She also said she couldn't refund our coupon, google had to do it (fine). But what a letdown. We walked over to Little Toots tours and they were happy to book us for their next tour 45 min later, and gave us a discount too. We saw plenty of dolphins that day, but not because of Tropics Boat Tours.
