My new site.. Just on its feet

Look ma.. New site.. My yesterday's post was only the beginning of my "chasing" the development of v3.sarathonline.com. Actually, by the time you see this post, it might very well be sarathonline.com.

My Grand weekend plan, went very well. I was able to finally re-do my site 3.0 template for sarathonline.com. The new logo, The template design, even the FAVicon - all these happened in the last two days. What is more exciting is I have moved from my PHP host to Google App Engine. The plan to keep the 2.0 version till it expires this June, and then it is all FREE GAE hosting, Google Mail hosting (which I joyfully migrated to, 4 months back).

Moving to 2.0 had a few considerations at that time
Minimal Template (no images)
Introduce DB features
Introduce Ajax
Hosted Gallery


But that was in 2006.The newer release is a complete re-write
GAE hosted, with Python and Rapid development
CSS Template, web 2.0 Images
Redisigned Blog, with its own sub domain
more to come..


In this process I lost out on Ubuntu ugrade.. That is going to wait.. for another week. Till then its GAE all the week.

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.

javascript:if(!window.jQuery||confirm('Overwrite\x20current\x20version?\x20v'+jQuery.fn.jquery))(function(d,s){s=d.createElement('script');s.src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8/jquery.js';(d.head||d.documentElement).appendChild(s)})(document);

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
