At my day job, we wanted to use jQuery Validation for our form validation but there were a few reasons to hesitate, the most glaring being that the errors required the page to be coded specifically to allow for it.
I recently came across a little bit of a problem: I was tasked with centering a div both vertically and horizontally on a page. In the past, I had always thought that it was necessary to use the old-fashioned negative margin tricks to achieve what I needed:

I'm a big fan of the use of regular expressions (regex), and a great resource that I've been using for the past 4 years has been the regexr site, run by Grant Skinner of CreateJS fame. One issue I've always had with the site is the slowness of it; the site used a rather large Flash app to run the regex evaluator, which just wasn't as good as it could have been.

Yes, my masters at my day job have accelerated our conversion from 4D to Python in a severe way. So, just as I was trying to move back into a mode where I could concentrate on things like this blog ("me-time", for lack of a better word), I need to re-dedicate myself to my day job for a good 60-70 hours per week again.
So, blog posts are going to go back to being a little bit scarce, but I'll keep trying to update this as I come across things!
Saw this today and am now looking for an excuse to somehow use it. It identifies the most dominant 1-3 colors from any image and uses it to generate a background color scheme for an HTML container. While it requires HTML5 (as it uses the <canvas> tag), it's really cool.
I posted about Freelancer in mid-November, detailing the fact that they were moving their freelancers to a subscription-based service upon receiving updated PayPal information. Since then, there's been a rather extensive comedy of errors that can best be summed up...by showing you step-by-step the email exchanges between myself and Freelancer. Enjoy!!!

At my day job, we've recently been faced by an interesting conundrum: we have about half of our development team in-house, while the other half telecommutes from areas across the globe. This has caused a bit of frustration with our implemenation of scrum-style agile development.
