Types of rope

https://www.classicmarine.co.uk/articles/reference-data/45-materials/142-types-of-rope

Saved by uncleflo on January 2nd, 2020.

Rope makers seem to delight in confusing us with science and/or extraordinary polysyllabic names. Let me try to cut through the guff a little. Also known as Terylene or Dacron, polyester is the stuff from which most “ordinary” rope and line is made of. It is resistant to rot and ultra-violet (UV), sinks in water and comes in a variety of constructions: 3-strand pre-stretched - can be spliced in the normal fashion, though it is a good idea to use 4 or 5 tucks instead of the 3 used in natural fibre ropes. The “pre-stretch” refers to an extra tweak imparted during the making of the rope which makes it more suitable for halyards and bell ropes. Very important, that - could you imagine the cacophony which would result from using stretchy rope? The snag with this construction is that it can kink, so it’s unusual to use it as a sheet.

Ricoh’s Theta V Is Sharper and More Powerful, But Let's Talk About 360 Video...

https://gizmodo.com/ricoh-s-theta-v-is-sharper-and-more-powerful-but-lets-1798544146

Ricoh has been in the 360-degree camera game for a long time—way before johnny-come-latelies like Samsung and Nikon. Things started back in 2013 with the original Ricoh Theta and now four years later, the company is back with the $430 Theta V. New features include 4K video and spatial audio capture, however, even with all those bells and whistles I’m having a hard getting excited about Ricoh’s new camera. The problem isn’t with the camera itself, it’s the medium. As I think back on the thousands of videos I watched since 2013, not a single 360 video sticks out in my a something truly memorable. Even when I dig a little deeper and consider things like Casey Neistat’s video about droneboarding or a tour through California Extreme with Steve Lin and Drew Scanlon, the source of the white blinking guy meme, I can’t help but think that both of these clips would have been better as boring flat clips.

Object Oriented Programming is an expensive disaster which must end. (written by lawrence krubner, however indented passages are often quotes). You can contact lawrence at: lawrence@krubner.com. I work with a broad set of technologies, including PHP, NodeJS, Python, Ruby, PHP, Apex, Java and Clojure, and databases such as MySQL, PostGreSQL, Redis, ElasticSearch and MongoDB. I bring the perspective of someone who has been both an entrepreneur and a software developer. Having grown businesses from scratch, I have some experience with every aspect of development: marketing, design, technology, sales and raising funds.

You Might Not Need jQuery

http://youmightnotneedjquery.com/

Saved by uncleflo on May 9th, 2018.

jQuery and its cousins are great, and by all means use them if it makes it easier to develop your application. If you're developing a library on the other hand, please take a moment to consider if you actually need jQuery as a dependency. Maybe you can include a few lines of utility code, and forgo the requirement. If you're only targeting more modern browsers, you might not need anything more than what the browser ships with. At the very least, make sure you know what jQuery is doing for you, and what it's not. Some developers believe that jQuery is protecting us from a great demon of browser incompatibility when, in truth, post-IE8, browsers are pretty easy to deal with on their own.

The ultimate SVG guide | PSDtoWP.net

https://psdtowp.net/svg.html

Saved by uncleflo on June 13th, 2015.

Scalable vector graphics, abbreviated as SVG, are web-based image formats which are used for vector-based-graphics whereby animations and interactivity are supported. SVG defines the graphics in XML format and when SVG's are zoomed, enlarged or scaled down the quality won’t be affected. SVG's have quite some benefits compared to normal images and canvas-based displays. SVG's aren’t often used by developers because they simply don’t know about SVG's or because they seem to be too complicated. Find below a clear overview of the various SVG benefits:

Responsive Web Design: What It Is and How To Use It | Smashing Magazine

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/01/12/guidelines-for-responsive-web-design/

Saved by uncleflo on June 4th, 2014.

Almost every new client these days wants a mobile version of their website. It’s practically essential after all: one design for the BlackBerry, another for the iPhone, the iPad, netbook, Kindle — and all screen resolutions must be compatible, too. In the next five years, we’ll likely need to design for a number of additional inventions. When will the madness stop? It won’t, of course.

3 reasons why you should let Google host jQuery for you » Encosia

http://encosia.com/3-reasons-why-you-should-let-google-host-jquery-for-you/

Saved by uncleflo on January 10th, 2013.

Instead, I urge you to use the Google AJAX Libraries content delivery network to serve jQuery to your users directly from Google’s network of datacenters. Doing so has several advantages over hosting jQuery on your server(s): decreased latency, increased parallelism, and better caching. In this post, I will expand upon those three benefits of Google’s CDN and show you a couple examples of how you can make use of the service.

Nothing is more upsetting than when a guy you darn well know is into you pulls the plug. One man gets to the bottom of out-of-the-blue breakups.
