My knife broke so I asked for a new one.

Dear Chicago Cutlery,

I remember it as though it occurred only a week ago;(can I use a semi-colon here) I was cutting through top sirloin (this was TOP sirloin, not the cheap bottom stuff) when the unimaginable happened. It was as if time slowed down briefly as the knife in my hand began to bend like Beckham. I kept cutting into the primal loin as I was looking to get it on the grill as soon as possible. Tonight was the night. We were to have steak, zucchini, and white onion kabobs on the grill. I had been waiting all day for this moment. Everything was going as planned until the knife suddenly snapped in half at the handle (I have photos!) nearly slicing my finger in multiple pieces. The anger rushed into my vein. I think it was just one vein. Who’s counting? I was seething nonetheless. “Why does this always happen to me?” I said to myself. “I don’t know, but stop talking to me,” I answered. At that time I knew I had to come up with a solution in a hurry. Do I rip apart the rest of the meat in a fit of rage? Should I let the dog chew it into smaller pieces for us? No! I acted quickly. I grabbed another knife and finished the preparation. I felt so ashamed that I had to use the tool I received for free while watching a knife demo at Walmart. It just didn’t feel right.

Can I get another knife?

Sent to the HOA representative.

I have removed the offending icicle lights. I apologize for the delay. During the process I cut my finger, but was able to quickly stop the bleeding so as to not require a trip to the emergency room. I had to use one band-aid. I did replace them, however, with red, white, and blue icicle lights for the upcoming July 4th holiday. I hope everyone enjoys them.

Thank you,

UPDATE: Their response.

Thank you for your e-mail. You can keep any holiday decorations you prefer inside of your home as long as they are not clearly visible (i.e. stickers on the windows, lights, etc.) from the street.

I’m fairly certain there are not icicles this time of year, please just remove the lights on the garage as requested in the notice.


Sent to our HOA representative

We received a notification that holiday decorations are to be removed at this time. Does this include the inside decorations? We still have our Christmas tree up and stockings hung. What if they are visible from the road? Also, it has been pretty cold so far this spring so it’s possible those were not lights around our garage, but real icicles.

Thank you,

After I was told to pick a new color for the mailbox by the HOA representative I figured I would try to have some more fun with them. They didn’t seem to mind last time. Here is my latest email to them:

Hello **** and ****,
I have attached two photos. One photo is of the color I would like to use, another is an artistic rendering of how the mailbox would look with the color applied. I have included a chicken in the photo for scale. The color is Taupe SC-153, but I’m not sure if it matches the current Taupe DP-326. Please let me know if I can apply this Behr color stain.

Thank you,

We live in a subdivision. We have an HOA. We get our fair share of letters regarding bushes and grass being too long. We’ll eventually fix them. Recently we receive a letter stating that our mailbox was mildewed and needed to be painted or replaced. I figured that I should act after receiving the third request to have it fixed. When I found out that their 10 approved colors are no longer available [they were renamed and renumbered] I sent this email:

Hi ****,
Thanks again for the assistance with this issue. On Friday I visited the local Hillsborough Home Depot and was devastated to find out that the kind folks at Behr have changed their color coding. The new codes now start with SC (for solid color) per the paint station attendant. The names mentioned below also appear in the newly refined list, however the associate seemed to indicate that the colors may not be the same (even if the named matched). Help! I’m afraid our neighbors have become quite irritated by our mildew-ridden mailbox post. I can even sense the disgust in the face of the mail carrier. The birds have even let their distaste be known by leaving droppings on the crown of the post. I’m quite sure this green-white stripe design isn’t an approved HOA application.



Their boring reply:

I have informed the board that these options are out of date. They will adjust accordingly & update – until then if you could just submit the color sample you would like to use they will turn around quickly with a response. Thank you!

The following javascript function does two things:

  1. Checks the number of characters within a given form field (input textbox or textarea) and updates a div or span element.
  2. Restricts the number of characters to the given maxlength.
  2. function checkLength (elemId, showId, totalChars)
  3. {
  4.      var elem = document.getElementById(elemId);
  5.      var elemShow = document.getElementById(showId);
  6.      var charsRem = totalChars – elem.value.length-1;
  8.      if (charsRem < 0)
  9.      {
  10.           elem.value = elem.value.substring(0,totalChars-1);
  11.           charsRem = totalChars – elem.value.length-1;
  12.      }
  13.      elemShow.innerHTML = charsRem;
  14. }

Here is some sample html that shows how to use the above javascript:

  2. <textarea id="txtBox" cols="75" rows="20" onkeypress="javascript: checkLength(‘txtBox’, ‘txtBoxShow’, 1000)"></textarea>
  3. <br/> <span id="txtBoxShow">1000</span> characters remaining.

For some reason the form field length requires subtracting 1 from the total length. If anyone has an explanation let me know.

Here is a quick sample:

My wife took these images today at work. The UPS truck was packed full of boxes full of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

hp_ups_01.jpg hp_ups_02.jpg

hp_ups_03.jpg hp_ups_04.jpg

The boxes (and the tape on the boxes) says “Do Not Open Before July 21st, 2007.”

Update: Thanks for the interest from metafilter.com. Interesting site.

My user database table contains at least the following fields:
id, username, password

Add more fields as you see fit (last login time, address information, etc).

Here is a quick breakdown of the php code with comments:

  2.      //Required to use session variables
  3.      //This must be called at the beginning of each page in which you want to use the session variables
  4.      session_start();
  6.      //Check to see if we have already logged in successfully
  7.      //If login was successfully then redirect to appropriate page
  8.      if ($_SESSION[‘loggedin’] == 1)
  9.           header("Location: loginsuccess.php"); //php redirect
  11.      //This page posts to itself, so here to check to see if the page was submitted
  12.      if(isset( $Submit ))
  13.      {
  14.           //MySQL username and password
  15.           $username="username";
  16.           $password="password";
  17.           //Specify MySQL database to connect to
  18.           $database="database";
  19.           //Create connection and select the appropriate database
  20.           mysql_connect("localhost",$username,$password);
  21.           @mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");
  23.           //Get the username and password from posted form
  24.           $username = $_POST[‘username’];
  25.           $password = $_POST[‘password’];
  27.           //Build the query to look for users that exist with that username/password combination
  28.           //Here I’m using the admin table within my database
  29.           $query = "SELECT * FROM admin where username=\"$username\" and password = \"$password\" ";
  30.           //Retrieve the results of the query, and also aquire the number of records returned
  31.           $result = mysql_query($query);
  32.           $num = mysql_numrows($result);
  34.           //Check to see how many records are returned
  35.           if ($num > 0)
  36.           {
  37.                //User login was successful, set session variable then redirect to the loginsuccess.php page
  38.                $_SESSION[‘loggedin’] = 1;
  39.                header("Location: loginsuccess.php");
  40.           } else {
  41.                //Login was unsuccessful, set a local variable for later use
  42.                $badlogin = 1;
  43.           }
  44.      }
  46.      //Here we look for querystring variable called ‘logout’
  47.      //If logout exists, and is equal to ‘yes’ then call the php session_destroy() function
  48.      //This will essentially log out the user
  49.      if ($_GET[‘logout’] == "yes")
  50.           session_destroy();

Here is the actual html for the form (with comments for inline php)

  2. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
  3. <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en-US" lang="en-US">
  4. <head><title></title></head>
  6. <body>
  8.      <form name="form1" method="post" action="">
  9.           UserName: <input type="text" name="username" id="username" value="admin" />
  11.           Password: <input type="password" name="password" id="password" value="admin" />
  13.           <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
  14.      </form>   
  15.      <?php
  16.           //If login was unsuccessful then we want to show an error to the user.
  17.           if ($badlogin == 1)
  18.                echo "<br/ ><span style=\"color: red;\">Invalid Login</span>";
  19.      ?>
  21. </body>
  22. </html>

That is all for this simple PHP/MySQL user login. If you need to ‘password protect’ any page within your site all you have to do at this point is add the following code to the top of the protected page:

  2.         session_start();
  3.      if ($_SESSION[‘loggedin’] != 1)
  4.           header("Location: phplogin.php");

This will check the session variable, and redirect to the login page if the variable hasn’t been set successfully.

Finally, to allow the user to logout simply create a link like this:

  2. <a href="phplogin.php?logout=yes">Logout</a>

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to leave a comment.

found an article on digg recently and starting playing around with light and long exposures. here are a few shots from that. they are all 10 second exposures. each light source is my phone. i tried laser, flashlight, led, and my phone. the phone worked out best.
