Theme songs

Hence this new playlist, "Theme Songs":





Anybody else have song associations to share?

My father passed away 15 months ago. Saturday was his birthday, and my mom had a particularly rough day. When I saw her that night, she had a letter for me that she had found among my dad's personal effects. It was a note to me, that he had written and never delivered. He's gone now; yet, here he is reaching me with earnest, loving encouragement. It's just what I need right now.


here is what he wroteCollapse )

My favorite part is when he mentions my "incredible catch in the outfield". I was 12, on my game, and playing center field. I jumped at the crack of the bat and caught a long fly at a dead run, over my shoulder. One of the greatest days of my dad's life. The rest of his life, he lit up whenever he recalled my "Willie Mays" catch.

Willie Mays' catch, 1954 World Series

Strip Tags in Javascript

Share
perplexed
The example google found for me was a little ugly and slightly wrong, so here's my version:

/**
 * STRIP TAGS
 */
function stripTags(str){
    return str.replace(/(<[^>]+>)/g,'');
}

Google Chrome options dialog tabs: "Basics", "Minor Tweaks", "Under the Hood". Smart.

No shit: I wrote a computer program to do the job that I was hired to do.

I had several weeks, at least, remaining on my contract, but I got bored doing repetitive data entry shit that required no thought. So I learned the scripting language for that particular environment (specific to the banking industry) and automated the work.

In a few hours, I found myself without anything from my original contract remaining to be done. It wasn't a great time to render myself redundant at that particular company. The name was Countrywide.
