Really simple and amazing CSS-effect
Recently I have come across a really simple and amazing in implementation rollover effect for the buttons on CSS menu. Its creator is some Japanese under a nickname ksk1015 in Twitter.
Here are its demo effect and writing process.
Surely, you paid attention to the computer using which the young John Connor hacked PIN-code to the ATM and the access code to the lab in Terminator 2. This computer was the Atari Portfolio. When the movie was showing in theaters in 1991, it seemed beyond the fiction. I was lucky to find it, and I want to share with you its features.
How do you imagine a popular Twitter Bootstrap CSS framework will look like, if it was from Google? Let’s meet Plusstrap.
Here are seven tools that can significantly simplify the life of a web developer, coder or designer.
This is a tool for selecting fonts. Wordmark.it allows you to see how a sentence looks like with all the fonts installed on the computer. It downloads quickly and has convenient filters. Unfortunately, there is no way to set the background color and letters.
Hello my dear UMumble users!
Many of you were waiting for this moment, making the variety of hypotheses about the look and the specifications of Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone that supposed to become the brightest new product in this year. Finally, the veil of secrecy has been opened, and it revealed the world the splendor of the new Samsung’s flagship. Here comes the new Samsung Galaxy S III from Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012.
It turned blue, is something wrong with it?
BSOD is the kernel response to an unsolvable particular situation. If you see it, it means that something has happened and it is definitely wrong.
The kernel environment imposes many restrictions on the programmer's free hand: you consider IRQL, sync access to shared variables, and you do not stay too long in ISR, you should verify any data from the userland… Breaking at least one of the rules, you will receive a bunch of phrases in a standard VGA video with the poor palette.
In fact, this makes sense. If in the user mode the application simply closes without even removing a trail after itself (that the kernel will do that), so it will not break the integrity of the entire system.
The article will concern the work of “brains”, which operate the engine of your car or motorbike. I will try to explain as simply as possible and in general, what and how is going on.
What do these “brains” do and what are they for? Electronics is an alternative to other systems performing the same functions. The carburetor used to deal with fuel metering, the ignition used to be operated by the mechanical or vacuum advance measure of the ignition advance. In general it can be realized not by electronics alone and it used to be just this way for quite a long time. On the cars, motorbikes, petrol-powered saws, petrol generators and other places worked and keep working the same systems that are to substitute the injector.
Why was it needed to change anything? Why should the existed, proved and rather reliable system be repealed? It is quite simple – a pursuit of economy, ecology and power. Work accuracy of the written above systems is not enough for the supply of the desired level of ecology and powerfulness, electronic systems of the engine controls began to appear long ago.
The adaptive layout requires a completely different way of thinking when planning its structure that is both the challenging and the interesting. In order to reprogram your brain to look at these layouts differently, we're going to take a look at some interesting patterns of adaptive layout, which were created by talented designers around the web.
Hello dear colleagues!
Today I would like to talk about electronics that I work with in my spare time, namely it is a racing car engine control.
Let's start describing the situation as a whole. In the car racing often the result does not depend only on a sportsman as in many other sports, but also it depends upon the equipment that sportsman uses. So, there is needed a professional approach to training and tuning up the racing car. Of course, there are a lot of nuances. But if we roughly divide this into the parts, we will get the chassis adjustment and engine tuning. Today I would like to tell you what electronics is used to tune up the engine of racing cars.
The modern racing engine (and the engine in your car) is controlled by a specific computer: Electronic Control Unit. It controls all processes that are going on inside and all on-board electronics. The most popular solutions are manufactured by the companies, such as Motec and Pectel. I am using in my car Motec M800, which is going to be as an example that I will discuss how it works.
I would like to talk about the image replacement techniques. I think almost everybody was faced with some moments in the layout, for example, when you want to use the graphic object for the page title, and at the same time to keep the text below for the search engines and the printed version. I think no one wants to break semantics of the page.
