gury (pronounced “jury”) is a JavaScript library designed to aid in the creation of HTML5/Canvas applications by providing an easy-to-use chain based interface.

There are two reasons why we might want asynchronous testing. The first, and obvious reason is that node.js is asynchronous, and therefore our tests should be. The second reason is to make tests which target I/O run much faster, by running them concurrently.

Processing.js is the sister project of the popular Processing visual programming language, designed for the web. Processing.js makes your data visualizations, digital art, interactive animations, educational graphs, video games, etc. work using web standards and without any plug-ins. You write code using the Processing language, include it in your web page, and Processing.js does the rest. It’s not magic, but almost.

Arbor is a graph visualization library built with web workers and jQuery. Rather than trying to be an all-encompassing framework, arbor provides an efficient, force-directed layout algorithm plus abstractions for graph organization and screen refresh handling.

Oh I wish I had known about this stuff instead of messing with paint. (via Amazon.com: Chalkboard Contact Paper, 18” x 6’: Home & Garden)

  • 6 eggshells (washed thoroughly)

  • 1 teaspoon very hot water

  • 1 teaspoon flour

Put eggshells in a electric blender and reduce to fine powder. You can also use a mortar and pestle or a rock on a board. Pick out any remaining big shell pieces and discard. Put water and flour in a bowl and mix until a paste is formed. Add 1 teaspoon of shell powder and mix until well combined. You can also add food coloring or tempera for colored chalk. Roll into a chalk-like stick. Wrap tightly in a paper towel. Let dry for 3 days until hard.  

Here is my advice as we begin the century that will lead to 2081. First, guard the freedom of ideas at all costs. Be alert that dictators have always played on the natural human tendency to blame others and to oversimplify. And don’t regard yourself as a guardian of freedom unless you respect and preserve the rights of people you disagree with to free, public, unhampered expression.
