Got a question about technology? Ask it here. Discussion of hardware, software, TiVos, multi-region DVDs, Windows, Macs, LINUX, hand-helds, iPods, anything tech related. Better than any helpdesk!

Hey. New board.

Don't worry zen, iPhones don't have control over google. That will just delete it from the phone.

Hey. New board.

You could also reset the phone. That would clear everything off and let you set it up fresh. Settings->General->reset->erase all content and settings

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Ha, Gris! So confusing, I thought Google controlled everything! Thanks for that, I really didn't expect it would be that easy to reset an iPhone.

Hey. New board.

This is my favorite little project I've done for my students in a long time, and I learned quite a bit about CSS while making it.


It won't be useful to anybody who isn't in my CS class, but I was proud and just want to show it off, heh.

Hey. New board.

Thanks! I gave my students a little template project to make really basic single-screen apps - essentially an html file with a couple of sample screens in that form and a javascript function called "switch_screen(id)" to enable the screen switching through hiding/showing the sections - to let them focus more on the javascript side of things and less on the HTML. We have been learning java in the course mostly, and there are decent GUI builder tools for java GUI apps, but a lot of them want to do web stuff for their final project.

The drag-and-drop javascript DOM API is much easier to use than I thought it would be, honestly.

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story. Tell me a story.

What would cause my computer to display some websites and some email without the letters Y and z, and display x as quote marks? Wall Street Journal does that. And NY Times shows up that way but resolves into normal. Am I missing a font or something?

Never mind, problem solved.

It's interesting watching Intel's stock price drop in real time during Apple's presentation.

By far the best new feature of macOS Big Sur is that they changed the sound it makes when you empty the trash can.

SO satisfying.
