This morning, I reflected on a few things that I’ve come to realize over the last few days that took me time to learn. I thought to myself, man, if someone had told me ‘x’ I wouldn’t have made mistake ‘y.’ 😛
Granted, I realize that it takes the experience itself to fully grasp the concept/lesson, though even learning from others is better than not learning at all, and certainly less costly then learning by mistakes. So I’m hoping my reflections can help put things in perspective and benefit others.
I realized that there are many things I learn over the course of time that come from diverse areas so I’ve decided to dedicate a page to them. Nothing in particular, just general things I’ve come to realize. I welcome your contributions as well. Hopefully the things I write and you submit can be applied to the general person, though I realize this will not always be the case and will try to be diligent not focusing on my situation in particular.
Ok, I’m in the midst of redoing the layout of my site, so rather then create a separate page now, I’ll make a simple blog post to kick things off. Baby steps right? Continue reading “Things I Wish Someone had Told me”
While out in Latin America, I noticed that the photo gallery, while awesome ;), didn’t give users an indication of when pictures were loading. I never noticed this here since my connection is quite fast and the pictures loading quickly. However in Colombia, the pictures would sometimes takes seconds to load.
So, last night I made an update to the gallery. When pictures are loading, I now show an activity indicator. Also when galleries are in “play mode” (via the ENTER button), there is a running green indicator.
Try it out, I’ve tested mainly on my mac so if you’ve got a windows PC, I’d luv to hear how it works for you. Also, any suggestions would be appreciated.
When I have time, I will update this post, though for now I posted the pics from Medellin in the travel pics gallery, click the link on the right and look for Medellin. The pictures are great.
