chapelbut anyways, I think cs, or at least any college course intended to produce people that know how to make software, should actually include people making it
Ive always had a knack for google
I dont really end up using all the advanced boolean stuff
Kriyasurferfitheach: you can write it into application_helper
chapeli just happen to use the right keywords to get what i want
Kriyasurferchapel: exactly! Knowing the keywords. I bet you that is a skill closely correlated with someone's ability to write and manipulate source code.
chapelheh, or to write in general
fitheachKriyasurfer: okay. hm, always that like that, but this one is also crowded with code from simplelog. I would like to have something, that is based my theme for simplelog.
Kriyasurferchapel: I don't know about that. Writing in general is expression... but when you're doing google, you're taking something you have a vague idea of and determining the appropriate context and appropriate keywords related to that context. Context is a big skill in programming (scoping)
infridHi.... same old question again.. any of you's using rails with flex, via flex remoting?
Kriyasurferfitheach: ok... write it in a separate file then include it into your helper. Are you going for global or controller-specific helpers?
chapelwell I agree with that, Im just saying that having knowledge of the words themselves helps as well
infridLove my rails backend goodness... and flex is my harley davidson on the front end.. ;-)
chapelMaybe we should come up with a google challenge site
find obscure and hard to find websites
and task people to find them
using google alone
heh
Kriyasurferchapel: yeah. In the case of the guy with the browser-specific detection, he was looking for a way to do it for opera. My guess was that he included "opera" in his search terms, when if he had not done so, he can get better results.
fitheachKriyasurfer: global. I think I write my own helper and include it. good idea. Just wanted to take that no update kills my stuff. :)
Kriyasurferchapel: I also bet that he wanted a snippet specific for opera, instead of the general technique of doing the detection and modifying it for opera
chapelwas he looking for a specific language based solution?
Kriyasurferfitheach: a couple ways you can do that. You can write a separate file, then in each controller do helper 'extra_helpers' or you drop the file into lib/ and then from application.rb do a require

docuki have a short question about attr_accessor: http://pastie.caboo.se/44595 please have a look
Kriyasurferchapel: for rails -- there's lots of different solutions. The one I immediately found wasn't a CSS based solution, but one you can write into the rails controller directly

:P
Kriyasurferchapel: yep, that was the one I found
chapel: see? easy
chapelbut thats simple
KriyasurferI know.
chapelkeywords "browser detection rails"
KriyasurferI know.
chapelfirst result
wzzrdKriyasurfer, chapel, thanks for the rant, made think in another direction, rethinking what the problem was, like chapel said
KriyasurferHe claimed that he did not find any useful results.
wzzrdproblem solved now :)
