Prado print on demand

I was recently at the Prado museum and found this print on demand service available for many images in their collection. the Gift store no longer carries posters – you can print many images at any size you want.

Here is their info card with pricing. I did not buy one but I remember the days when I used to buy posters from museums.

you can also buy online at www.tiendaprado.com

WordPress Support » Widget Logic (logged in?)

Do not display for people logged in

Question: Is there a conditional tag so that I can show/not show a certain widget based on whether the person is logged into the blog.

Answer: the code to use: is_user_logged_in()

The forum post below is closed so I’m answering this question here on my blog.

BTW if you want to NOT show a widget to logged in users just use: !is_user_logged_in()

via WordPress › Support » Widget Logic – Do not display for people logged in.

 

More Tips

Also: if you want to show a widget on two or more specific posts then use an array like this: is_single(array(1,147,53))

if you and to target two or more specifica pages use: is_page(array(1,147,53))

and you can use the opposite too if you want to exclude a handful of pages or posts: !is_single(array(1,147,53))

Unintentional signage #1: LIBERTY

I am gathering images of old, faded, cracked vinyl signs and have been keeping an eye out for a certain kind of wabi-sabi sign. Today though I have a different kind of sign to share.

I came across some moss growing in the sidewalk embossed sign for “Liberty” street…

A More Usable Skype 5 Mac Beta

The new Skype for mac has so many problems. Better video quality but serious UI issues. Full screen mode and partial screen sharing are gone but this skin solves the too-much-whitespace issue.

This skin is easy to install and does a great job.

We’ve created a quick and simple custom style named “RocketTheme.SkypeChatStyle” that incorporates the following:

  • Smaller font sizes
  • Reduced paddings and margins
  • Visible avatars and names for all members of the conversation including yourself
  • Lighter borders and colors

Dr. Seuss does Star Wars

The Star Wars universe blends with the goofy, strangely-named world of Dr. Seuss pretty easily.

Building an HTML email is not like building for the web

A great article about the challenges of building HTML for email clients. I had banged my head on many of these challenges and want to reiterate his point below to “keep it simple”.

While web browsers continue their onward march towards standards, many email clients have stubbornly stayed put. Some have even gone backwards. In 2007, Microsoft switched the Outlook rendering engine from Internet Explorer to Word. Yes, as in the word processor. Add to this the quirks of the major web-based email clients like Gmail and Hotmail, sprinkle in a little Lotus Notes and you’ll soon realize how different the email game is.

TextExpander vs Typeit4me: one bug to rule them

I am trying out “TextExpander” because I was having a problem with Typeit4me where it would stop working often with no reason. The TextExpander folks got back to me quickly with an explanation and I have to assume it is affecting many people. There is a bug in Firefox and Chrome where they enable secure input but don’t disable it.

This bug is particularly infuriating because it doesn’t seem clear to the end user what causes it. However, it does have a cause, a workaround, and it does seem to be getting some traction from the Mozilla folks.

When these browsers display a password field, they turn on secure event input so that no one, including TextExpander, can peek at your passwords. Problem is, if you use the Return key to submit a form from within its secure field, they won’t turn secure event input off. This appears to be a bug they’ve inherited from some Firefox code they use.

The workaround is to use the submit button rather than using Return in the password field. 1Password is similarly affected by this bug. The workaround there is to turn off auto-submit and just use auto-fill then press the button to submit.

THE SOLUTION: Usually when you quit the application that enabled secure input (permanently) it will be disabled and all will be back to normal.

When editing a password field on the Mac, Firefox ultimately calls EnableSecureEventInput to prevent other input managers from sniffing the user’s password. If I exit the password field by clicking in another field, or by clicking the “submit” button, then Firefox properly calls DisableSecureEventInput. However, if I exit the password field by hitting return (thereby submitting the form), then DisableSecureEventInput is not called, and other input managers on the system are permanently locked out of keyboard input.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. create a form that has an input field of type “password” and an input of type “submit”
  2. use Firefox, and type in the password form
  3. set a breakpoint on DisableSecureEventInput
  4. exit the form by hitting return

Actual Results: DisableSecureEventInput is not called, and other input managers are locked out of keyboard input

via Bug 556873 – exiting a password field by pressing return fails to disable secure entry mode.
Feel free to vote it up….

and after I use TextExpander a while longer I will comment in more detail about how it compares. so far it seems to be faster and not stumble on replacements when I type fast.

PayPal iPhone app review: deposit check with a photo

Another innovative feature from PayPal. This is free. Deposit a check just by taking a photo of it with your iPhone camera.

I tried it and it took 7 days for the check to clear. Not exactly warp speed so I hope that will improve over time. But still feels “futuristic”.

Simple to do:

  1. Launch the PayPal app, click Tools, and choose Add Money From Checks.
  2. View your previous check status or click Capture New Check.
  3. Take a picture of both sides—make sure all the information is clear.
  4. Set the amount of your check and click Process Check.

via PayPal iPhone app now lets you add money to your account for free.
