I love different experiments with JavaScript. They allow us to look in the future and see how exciting it will be. When you will be viewing this collection, probably you will think of the recent king Adobe Flash, and then you realize how fast CSS and JavaScript took the throne away from it. Modern browsers allow us to use a variety of different effects and animations without any limitations. However, the word "experimental" means a number of limitations, such as the incorrect displaying in some browsers (IE), in addition, these plugins will be as conceptual addition to the personal pages, and not for use in the large projects.

MSL Curiosity did the most detailed geological research on Mars

Chemistry & Mineralogy X-Ray Diffraction is one of the most accurate methods of mineralogical analysis. Due to this method it is possible to find out the mineral composition, not the chemical. For example, diamond and graphite are identical in terms of chemistry, but the different formation conditions affected the crystal lattice structure and radically changed the mineral nature. The purpose of Curiosity was just to determine what conditions led to the mineral formation on Mars in the past.

Sometimes, web developers get a task that requires a smooth movement of the object on the screen. This may be a download string, sprite, or something else. The problem occurs when the shift seems to be too abrupt even at one point, and that messes up the overall impression of the event. How do we avoid it? Should we use anti-aliasing techniques?

This can be done using the sprites, as well as smart reduction of the original image. Here are some steps that you need to follow:

First, we have a large image of a car.

How great and wonderful is the world of information technology! Every week I read all kinds of the news that out there is one billion of Web pages that each group of kindergarten has its own website and we run out of IP addresses! Free iPads are given out to the students and all African children have $ 100 laptops. In general, this information is overwhelming! Thanks to Wikipedia we will not look like a fool on the forums and the social networks.
Today we can work and have fun online. Internet allowed a young boy from Siberian village to work on the Large Hadron Collider, and thousands of talented people have opened their gifts thanks to YouTube. Is not it great?

What if someone copies your brilliant business idea?

About twenty people asked this question on Answers OnStartups:
When I meet with an investor, he may ask me: What if a big company copies your idea and develops the same website as you did?

How can I answer this question?

No, the question is: What are you doing now, knowing that a big company will copy your idea?

No, wait, the real question is: What are you going to do when another smart and quick startup will copy it and gets $10 million financing?

HTTP Archive statistics shoes the explosive growth of JavaScript in the Web. A year ago, the average size of scripts was 128 KB per the page, and now it is 189 KB.


On the one hand, it is great that this programming language is going through a sort of rebirth and the universal popularity. On the other hand, the expansion of scripts size loads up the browser and has a negative effect on the loading time of pages. It is very sad that to download one tweet (140 symbols) requires 1.65 MB of scripts.

The web developer needs a console, but not that much that he/she should drop everything and start reading thick books about Linux. That's why I have learned occasionally some console tricks, and many of my coworkers do the same. I will reveal a few useful secrets without which I cannot live anymore.

1) Use ssh keys!

I discovered the keys a long time, but regularly there are people who never heard about them. SSH keys allow adapting the connection once, and then passwords do not have to be stored to all sites in a notepad.
$ ssh-keygen -t dsa

This cyberplatform is able to carry up to 9 grams of useful load.

Let’s take a look at a caterpillar. At some point it turns into a butterfly. Here is a simple question, namely is it possible to give it the synthetic components that allow building a cyborg-insect? Answer would be yes it is. Michel Maharbiz, associate professor did it.

It is funny, but there are more male programmers than female. You cannot argue with this fact, therefore, any manager should take into account the men's psychology in the programming.

If we revert to the ancient times when man hunted the mammoths and the women stayed at home, gave birth to children and prepared meals. In order to hunt, a man was preparing for a long time, sharpening the ax, making the arrows and a bow. Then he stayed in wait, and finally he shot or stab. This characteristic of the behavior transformed and survived to the present day. The man is distinguished by the ability of high concentration for a job. This is a big advantage, and on the other hand it could be a big disadvantage. The man in contrast to the woman cannot do several things at once.
