New blog feature....

By Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 02:41 PM EST

I've made the "reply" box draggable. You can move it around if you like, so that you can see what is underneath. Try it, you may like it.

There are  - loading -  comments....

Looks pretty slick, Andrew. Nicely done.

Even more than the draggability, I like the semi-transparency.
Excellent. I plan to add some more controlls for that.By Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 05:08 PM EST
Today I spent a good deal of time adding code to prevent embedded scripting and
html codes in this form.

I hope the interface continues to improve. There have been a few bugs to work
out over the last few days.

I'm with Ben. The transparency is what makes this a great feature. Nicely

Very nice Andrew. I love the transparency when you drag it around. Maybe you
can show us all how you did this :-)
It's the only feature on the site I didn't write myselfBy Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 09:10 PM EST
I usually do everything from scratch. It's a learning process. In this case,
I used a script library called "" that has a reasonable license
and use policy, excellent functionality, and so far very good cross platform

Once installed, I make this draggable with -1- line of code.....

n = new Draggable('blogCommentEntryArea');

Man, that's cool! Could you arrange to have some Hendrix or Iron Butterfly
play when you do the transparency? It would complete the mood ;-)

That is very cool. I like it more than the inline comment forms.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't.

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
