When I was a young officer in 1979, I toured what was known as "The Killing Fields" in Cambodia. This is the area where the Khmer Rouge killed off nearly quarter of the Cambodian population, something like 1.9 million people in just a few years. My guide told me that they started by rounding up all of the teachers. They wanted to extinguish free thought, and the spark of questioning and dissent. Because, to a totalitarian dictator, an open and inquisitive mind is more dangerous even than a Marine with a rifle. - General Mattis

Emotions neither prove nor disprove facts. -Thomas Sowell

All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.

I long ago took a solemn oath to believe in solemn oaths.

Industrialization has been good for humanity. It has fed billions, doubled lifespans, slashed extreme poverty, and, by replacing muscle with machinery, made it easier to end slavery, emancipate women, and educate children. It has allowed people to read at night, live where they want, stay warm in winter, see the world, and multiply human contact. - Pinker

The 3 unwritten rules of life...

Give a man a plane ticket and he’ll fly for a day.
Push a man from a plane and he’ll fly for the rest of his life.

I'm pretty bad at building fences
Oops, wrong place for this post.

A student spent an entire summer going to the football field every day wearing a black and white striped shirt, walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes throwing birdseed all over the field, blowing a whistle and then walking off the field. At the end of the summer, it came time for the first home football team, the referee walked onto the field and blew the whistle, and the game had to be delayed for a half hour to wait for the birds to get off of the field.

Network diagram software ...

As I was looking to mock-up a system diagram with free network diagram software and I came across..


It is easy to use and has a lot of different types of diagrams to choose from (business, flowchart, network, software, UML, Venn). You can start from a template or from scratch. The wide range of shapes and pictures is impressive.

Here's a test page I put together that uses the "eval" function.

The code does 2 things.

First, I create a string variable called brr with a value of 9*3 and show the string in the first alert.

In the second alert, I use the "eval" function to evaluates the expression and executes the statement to provide the result "27".

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript">
var brr = '9' + '*' + '3';
This is the test page.

Save the code as an html file and try it out. Let me know if it works for you.  8)

Can you put a * symbol in a array without quotes? Ex:
var brr = [9,  * , 3];
alert(brr);//Expected result would be 27
