Cats, Bills, and JavaScript

2007-03-27 09:51:47.818607+00 by meuon 4 comments

Pandemonium, the well named cat, is nesting in my bill basket, trying to knock my glasses off the desk, again.. and perusing Tom and Dori's "JavaScript and Ajax". When I started doing JavaScript, their 4th edition was cryptic, yet good solid basics that I was looking to understand. As I look though version 6. I find myself going: "Well, you -could- do it that way.. ". The book is up to date, has useful examples and more advanced techniques, yet still clearly shows how things work and glue together well, even some basic AJAX techniques. (I love the things you can do with XMLHTTPRequest!).

And if I can't find something on my desk.. I get on my hands and knees and see where the cat threw/hid it.

Awwww...isn't she the cutest thing?

You might check under the couch in the dining room - that seems to be a favorite hiding place of hers ;-)

And besides, I like you on your hands and knees

I like the way the little humanoid paper clip thingie on that basket looks well camouflaged.

Thats a clip I found that looked too much like a "burning man" symbol to not have! We used to have a set of several; this might be the final remainder. And in true burning man spirit, I think I picked them up at a garage sale ;-)

Hey, thanks for the book plug!

If you ever have suggestions for how things could be less cryptic, or find useful things we've left out, please let me know, ok?
