My hike on the Dogwood trail today was quite a slog through mud and ice.Continue reading post "#3317"
I bought a short domain name in part so I could have a short email address that was easy to share. Unfortunately, I’m finding it to sometimes confuse people or require more effort than expected to spell out.Continue reading post "#3314"
The installation of a new version of nodejs via MacPorts took nearly two hours.Continue reading post "#3312"
I guess npm doesn’t find a version of a package that matches the current environment when doing
npm install whatever.
I’m glad the sun and warm weather are returning to Northeast Ohio.Continue reading post "#3307"

One of Cogneato’s clients noticed that Recaptcha wasn’t working on their site. The checkbox wouldn’t check at all. I noticed that there was an error like “Unexpected token in JSON at position 0” in the browser’s console log. Since this was one of our really old sites, I figured it might have some sort of inadequate polyfill for
JSON.parse(). I saw that the site was using Prototype.js, so I looked through the script to see if it was overriding that method, but it wasn’t. That did put me on the right track, though, to find the Stackoverflow answer that solved it for me.
Prototype was overriding the now browser standard
reduce() method of
Array.prototype with its own, incompatible functionality. The solution was simply to remove that method from the “prototype.js” file. We weren’t using the special Prototype functionality anywhere, so this didn’t cause a problem. If we were, we’d probably have to duck punch the browser’s functionality to handle both method signatures.

Seems like domain registrars strip off “www.” from the beginning of domains when searching, even when trying it as a second level domain.Continue reading post "#3294"
I came across an interesting Stackexchange question about easy to type passwords. It seems a useful consideration for passwords we have to type frequently. Reading through the answers got me to thinking about a solution that fits the criteria of easy / fast to type along with the general password criteria of easy to remember and some reasonable level of secure.
My solution considers typing style for determining ease and uses words and rules for making them memorable. It keeps to the rules from the question of at least one upper case letter, one number, and one symbol.Continue reading post "Easily typed passwords"
