It was fun seeing Jevon surprised this past Friday. Dude started laughing as soon as he got in the door. I think at first he taught it was a stripper cause he was blind-folded. Anyways, the night was fun.
Speaking of fun, have you seen Katie Dippold’s creation, Long Awkward Pose? For those that haven’t seen the LAP site…
it’s simple, really. People look foolish when posing for a picture. So tell your loved ones you would like to take their photo… then secretly videotape them the whole time.
So, Joemama had to back out of our Japan Discovery Tour in November. However, we were fortunte enough to have Cat come along and join in on the fun. Meanwhile, I guess she was talking to Ryan about it and I guess they had a conversation about “kancho”. She didn’t know what it was… till now:
[15:06] cat: ryan said i can’t play kanchu? w/the big boys yet
[15:06] me: haha
[15:06] cat: what’s it called?
[15:06] me: kancho
[15:06] cat: oh yeah, i’m gonna look that up right now
… (seconds later)
[15:07] cat: ewww! i don’t want to play, i just looked it up on wikipedia!
I am trying to clean up and make things more efficient here at work. One goal would be to have a base CSS that will serve as a starting point for our Producers and Frontend peeps. Another goal would probably be a convention on how to use it and/or create new classes and IDs.
One of the things that keeps coming up lately would be the naming convention of classes and IDs. I used to implement this kind of format “class_name”. Then, only to switch to “class-name” in early ’06. Fast-forward to a couple of months into the year during a project, I came to find out that if you are referring to either a classname or an ID (i.e. getElementById, or something like that) that the value’s hyphen get stripped out. Can someone confirm this phenomena and/or myth? That is, for example, doing “id-name” would be implemented like so:
With that however, would it be more readable using a camelCased name? Although against Tantek’s step #4 in terms of saving the user(s) potential headaches. But would there be problems if there was a standard within one’s organization? That is, classes and IDs written as a variable, i.e. somethingLikeThis; no hyphens and no underscore.
I look forward to hearing your endless wisdom on this subject sirs and madams. Thanks in advance.
So, I got into work this morning only to find out that there was one bagel left in the kitchen. Being glad that there is something to eat other than the numerous amount of snacks in the cupboards, I found out that there was no more cream cheese. This, after the fact that my mighty bagel just toasted to perfection.
What does it feel like? Well, you can compare it to a lot of things. Like, going to drop kids off only to find out that there is no more TP.
Meanwhile, the McGuyver in me found some pudding in my cabinet. I was going to use them for snacking with Honey-Wheat flavored pretzels. It’s kind of like YanYans but cheaper and more nutrients. Back to the pudding. I then slapped on a small teaspoon of it on the bagel just to try it out—tasted like Nutella but softer!
So now you know. Word to the wise though, the pudding should have a base flavor of Chocolate. At least from my first-time experience today. I hope that this info comes in handy for you one day. Other than that, make sure to let your friendly-neighborhood office manager know that there is a low supply of cream cheese in the fridge.
