Webdevs, ran across Chrome's "Device mode" on reddit today, thought it was sweet - https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/device-mode

Making a mobile-first web or hybrid app with sub-page scrollable regions? Need a CSS overflow:auto polyfill for platforms like Android v3 and older? Meet Overthrow. Gave it a try today, and it seems to work reasonably well.
Overthrow - A tiny, no-frills, framework-independent, targeted overflow: auto polyfill for use in responsive design.

Got bitten by this today: email contact forms setting the "from" header to the user's address may go undelivered due to strict new anti-spoofing policies. Set "from" to something like "noreply@mydomain.com" instead, and put the form user's address in the "reply-to" header.

Doug Drinnen runs a HVAC/Plumbing company and is looking for some help streamlining his job management system (currently built around an Access core).

I am, unfortunately,  too busy right now for a new project. I told him I'd put the word out here. If you're interested in talking with Doug, his email is ddrinnen@acrsllc.net.

There is a Kansas City group that is putting on a student hackathon right outside KC.  I think it would be awesome if we could get a group and go mentor.  I know we want to bring this kind of thing to Wichita so it might be super useful to go to one that's already organized.  They are looking for mentors and I plan on signing up.  If you are interested let me know, I'd love to get a carpool together.  Link is http://hackedkc.org/

+Lucas Burson Hey Lucas.  We don't currently have any Generators that produce escaped characters and various encodings.  However, I expect that we will have some Generators very soon that do. ;o)  Thanks for the suggestion.

We're nearly unanimously in support of Lowercase "d" ... so now that's left is to determine the fate of the cursor block.  Make sure you reflect on this profusely.  The fate of our world rests in your hands.

Seriously, just shoot from the hip.

+Brian Simpson I can spin one without.  Doesn't hurt for people to see what other options are.  Even w/o it being the "cursor" ... the more I see it, the more I like how it contains the whole thing.  That said, I'm not as current in honing my knowledge of "what's hot right now!"

+Jacob Walker +Brian Buller Yeah, I kinda preferred a lowercase leading "d" ... but opted for Caps b/c it was the convention.  I'll do a spin of that as well to see what's up, if changing it everywhere else is something someone else wants to do :P

For my presentation on GenRocket, I'd like to get a sense for how people are creating test data, if you're doing it at all.  If you're not creating test data, I'd like to know why.  This will help me cater my presentation a bit to be more relevant to those attending and it would be much appreciated.

At my job all of our development work is done against a full copy of the live data pulled from replication slaves.

DevICT will be getting together to create StartupWichita.com! This site is intended to be a centralized hub of information on all things startup related in the Wichita area.

It's goal is to create one place that you can go to for all community event information, collaboration and discussion in the startup realm, a showcase for Wichita based startups, and any other local startup resources.

Anyone is welcome! Whether you're a designer, developer, or just have some good ideas for the website, feel free to join us.

The Android emulator lets you run virtual Android devices for testing purposes, but it's painfully slow. It's especially painful for testing web apps. I found a fix yesterday, after my frustration maxed out. The attached link gives instructions and screen shots for setting it up on Windows. There's more extensive docs from Google (including Linux and Mac help) here: http://bit.ly/1pr1sKX

Note that this requires the use of x86 Android system images and a computer whose processor has Intel's Virtualization Technology extensions (Windows and Mac) or AMD's competing virtualization extensions (Linux only).
I have a 2.67 GHz Celeron processor, 1.21 GB of RAM on a x86 Windows XP Professional machine. My understanding is that the Android emulator should start fairly quickly on such a machine, but for me it does not. I have followed all the instructions in setting up the IDE, SDKs, JDKs and such and have had some success in starting the emulator quickly but that is very rare. How can I, if possible, fix this problem? Even if it starts and loads the hom...

I recently spent a couple of days using Litmus to compatibility-test emails sent by a web application I help develop and maintain. Litmus has gotten easier, faster, and more powerful since I last used it about a year ago. Plus, their generous free trial policy means that since I don't need it often I can get seven days (more than enough) free of charge more than once on the rare occasions that I do. No, they're not paying me anything to write this. I just feel that they've given me more than enough for free to deserve a shout-out. A great service, definitely recommended.

Minor quibbles and caveats: The live interactive testing only extends to webmail clients and is still very slow. I have no experience at all with their email analytics and spam filter testing, so I can't speak to either of those things. Every so often an email screen shot will fail to capture correctly, but you can just re-request it by hitting the "R" key on your keyboard (the keyboard shortcuts are very handy).

Thanks for the write up, Adam! We appreciate the kind words, as well as the feedback. We are working on revamping Interactive Testing and plan to offer it for more clients so stay tuned! Cheers!

Nice logo! Very good work.

If anyone is interested in learning discrete optimization techniques, there is a course on Coursera that started a few days ago. They cover NP-hard problems like knapsack, routing, graph coloring; these are very common problems so it definitely pays to know how to create efficient solutions to them. It may sound difficult but it's totally possible to work on this if you're not an algorithm pro, and the language choice is open. So if you're looking for something to play with, join me!! 

Here's the description from their page:
"Tired of solving Sudokus by hand? This class teaches you how to solve complex search problems with discrete optimization concepts and algorithms, including constraint programming, local search, and mixed-integer programming."
https://www.coursera.org/course/optimization
Discrete Optimization is a free online class taught by of The University of Melbourne
