top Blowing Up a Pointless Job Interview
During an interview the HR guy asked me 2 questions that had the rest of the folks at the table offer me the job...
Q1: What 2 words best describe you? A1: I would have to go with "Springer Guest"... Wait... the judge said "Repeat Offender"
Q2: What is your greatest weakness?
A2: I have a great distain for trick questions. I know you only want me to say something positive about myself because the negative thing about me is somehow a positive. But I am pretty grumbly hateful about it instead of humbly grateful.
I really do appreciate a good framework... My favorite one currently is Vanilla-js
Check it out. Amazing performance.

Customize it with CSS... call it a day. Forums are just pages with styled links. Your server doesn't suffer the load... the federated login is handled by others...

top Adobe Pushing For Flash TVs
So if a client has money and wants to pay you money to produce a flash application, you say "N O"?
So your client wants the following:
Cross platform Pixel precise design Media assets (video/sound) Custom media controls Robust charting (Flex Charting). Give you money to do it. Accessibility for blind users.
What do you use?
My main reason for use Flash/Flex is that the runtime is consistent across platforms and I don't have to take the time to rebuild portions of my application for IE anomalies. I take the time to make my controls accessible for blind users. In my videos I even embed a Closed Caption player. I can lazy load my data when it is needed on the screen. And I can cache my RSL's to make my content smaller the next time you come back.
Until something better comes along. Long live Flash/Flex.
top When Is a Self-Signed SSL Certificate Acceptable?
1. Test box
2. When you have a smaller user base of users that actually know you. Like a workgroup that might uses a web front end to a database that isn't usually public facing but for whatever business reason isn't behind a firewall. 3. When you are cheap.
Blah blah... price of everything... cost of nothing... blah blah...
