Went up to Eureka to work. The office is “repaired” and people can move back in. I loved reacquainting myself with co-workers. I work with a great group of people. They like each other, mostly. To save the corporation money, I stayed at my daughter’s. That was fun, too.
I loved being able to show three of my Raspberry Pis. One of them is set up as a camera in a Lego case. I actually love that one. I guess I should figure out if I can set up the Raspberry Pi 2 with the camera. I am having fun with them.
On the 14th, PI Day, I am doing a Raspberry Pi demonstration at the Upper Lake Library. It is on the corner of Main and Second. Maybe it will blossom into a user group. I would LOVE that.
I am glad to be home and able to relax (relapse). Listening to Floater. Repaired the vacuum. Tasting wine. Loving life.
I did run into a wall for a few minutes before retiring for the night. backgroundColor has a capital C in Color. When I couldn’t get the background color to change within a defined 400×300 rectangle I had to re-check the code. I was missing that C in two spots. What a relief to find that. It is always the simple syntax errors that cause the most damage.
Tomorrow is another day of working on the house, playing music and programming.
Today I tried my hand at crocheting. My stitches were way too tight. It took mw about six or seven times to get them loose enough. Trying to make a Cat Bus for Emily. I am working out the style of one of the legs.
var myButton = document.querySelector(“button”);
myButton.addEventListener(“click”, myClickHandler, false);
var whatColor = 0;
var body = document.querySelector(“body”);
var score = 0;
var output = document.querySelector(“#output”);
var divColor = document.querySelector(“div”);
if (score === 1)
output.innerHTML = “The button was clicked ” + score + ” time.”;
output.innerHTML = “The button was clicked ” + score + ” times.”;
output.style.fontSize = “50px”;
output.style.textDecoration = “underline”;
if(whatColor === 0)
output.style.color = “red”;
whatColor = 1;
myButton.style.color = “brown”;
myButton.style.backgroundColor = “#aaaaaa”;
body.style.backgroundColor = “#2222cc”;
divColor.style.backgroundColor = “#5555ff”;
output.style.color = “blue”;
whatColor = 0;
myButton.style.color = “#ff3333”;
myButton.style.backgroundColor = “#cccccc”;
body.style.backgroundColor = “#5555ff”;
divColor.style.backgroundColor = “#2222cc”;
Well, that didn’t work out quite well enough. The HTML stuff rendered instead of listed. I can fix it in the morning.
Using the code tag doesn’t work. Some stuff gets stripped out and some of the HTML gets rendered, and changed. I have read a few posts through google. I may need to install a plugin.
I ended up adding to Simple Custom CSS and having to force some inline styles to get the section showing code how I wanted it. I wanted non-horizontal wrapping and vertical scrolling, with horizontal scrolling if needed for long lines.
I accidentally hit publish which took it out of draft mode. Bother!
I have been reading HTML5, CSS3, WordPress books from the Upper Lake Library and from Kindle. There is a lot of information for me to process. I have been taking lots of notes. Once I return the books to the library I won’t have them as a quick reference.
It is almost midnight. Linda is sleeping heavily. I am very sleepy. At one point I wanted to get coffee. I stayed awake anyway on the way home from Operation Andrew. Emily said that Chris is really happy and appreciates it. I went to Santa Rosa after noon and picked up Chris’s brother Andrew. Then I drove up to Garberville to meet Chris and hand off Andrew. Chris was so happy at the time. He said, “I don’t know if I should hug you or hit you.” I am sure they will be up for hours touching base with each other. Andrew has to leave on Saturday to get home on time for work on Monday.
I only added colors to the text because there is an option to do that. Checking upon it on the Text tab shows that inline <span style=””> </span> is used.
It’s like working with a puzzle. Keep at it until you get it right, or how you like it.
added -> this is uncategorized just to see where it ends up.
