    Awesome! I like the transition effects.

  • Dr Herbie

    @sysrpl:Nice transitions, but some of the grammar in the wording is wrong in places -- needs better proof reading.

    If political commentary keeps showing up on this forum, I won't be back until November 7, when I will be able to gloat Smiley

    November 7, 2040?

  • Dr Herbie

    @Proton2: Yes, because making cocksure claims for future events you don't have complete control of never leads to embarrassment.

    Obama and the UN want to tax the Internet.   Romney Ryan will win big.  I know Chicago Dirty politics and even though Obama is a good guy but his entourage is dirty.(Yes unemployment numbers were rigged for October and that story comes out soon)

    I think you're Romlusional.

    brought to you by the same man who was against gay marriage and the individual mandate before he was for them.... said that raising the national debt by 4 trillion in 8 years was unpatriotic... but 5.5 trillion (so far) in less than 4... is a-ok... and bravely took a stand against military engagements without congressional oversight... until he became the first President to violate the War Powers Act.

    I know you guys are getting a bit desperate... but this kind of projection is just sad... but not unexpected given prescient nature of this comment from just 4 years ago:

    "If you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."  – Barack Obama

    #Romnesia: Shecky Obama can't face his own lousy record, mocks Romney instead; Conservatives hit back with #Obamnesia

    So you are upset that Obama wasn't for marriage equality sooner, is that your complaint? How does supporting Republicans, who traditionally attack gays, advance that cause?

    Obama said that raising the national debt by 4 trillion in 8 years was unpatriotic... but 5.5 trillion (so far) in less than 4

    I'm not sure where that attribution is sourced, but I thought you'd like to know that there was this market collapse brought on by the last Republican administration which wrecked our economy. I know a lot of morons worship the altar of free market economics, but that's not how the world works. People with money and power game the system to recursively extend their control, and the Republicans are the party that caters to the rich who want more money and power.

    and bravely took a stand against military engagements without congressional oversight... until he became the first President to violate the War Powers Act.

    Yeah right. Hey I'm not a friend of Obama, but I think everyone agrees that Republicans are war hawks (chicken hawks). That is, they are more accepting of going to war, funding defense contractors, and are in greater favor of using our army/bombs/might to attack people across the globe. 

    You're saying you don't like military engagements, so ... vote Republican? This makes zero sense.

    "If you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."  – Barack Obama

    Wow, talk about using the wrong context. What you quoted above was Obama describing the modus operandi of the Republicans who were criticizing him. You attempted to flip the meaning to the opposite. It's quite telling that you are so eager to disinform others.

    @sysrpl:ahh more spinning and attempts to deflect and rationalize while trying to put plenty of words in my mouth.

    I will not play along.

    My sole point was the hilarity of the double standard at play here... someone accusing someone else of they very sort of behavior that the first has engaged in for years.

    It is generally bad form for... an overweight person to call someone fat in a derogatory way... or for an unrepentant serial adulterer to stand in judgment of another who has similarly transgressed.

    You don't seem to know what "double standard" means. Obama was for DOMA while he was running for this first term and still won. He didn't change his mind because he thought it would improve his chances for election.

    As for the individual mandate, it was put into the ACA to make it more palatable to right-wingers. It was, after all, first proposed by the Heritage Foundation. It's the two-faced GOP that decided call it "unconstitutional" once Obama supported it for the ACA. The truth is Obama still prefers having a public option, and I'll go so far as to say he'd still prefer a single payer system, but he knows something like that would never have passed with the crazed lunatics on the right side of aisle ready to scream "Socialism!" at the drop of a hat.

    If you think his views on same sex marriage, DOMA, or most anything since taking office and subsequently 'evolving'... I've got a bridge to sell you.

    Revise history much? Or would you like to offer a citation to a claim I've never heard before other than from you right now... and believe me... I've heard plenty.

    It was, after all, first proposed by the Heritage Foundation.

    Now you've at least gone from complete baloney to having a nugget of truth... of course what most who the talking point you just raised fail to understand what it was exactly they proposed... something that is actually illegal now under ObamaCare.

    It's the two-faced GOP that decided call it "unconstitutional" once Obama supported it for the ACA. The truth is Obama still prefers having a public option, and I'll go so far as to say he'd still prefer a single payer system, but he knows something like that would never have passed with the crazed lunatics on the right side of aisle ready to scream "Socialism!" at the drop of a hat.

    Now you are just ignoring large periods of time. Are you choosing to be ignorant? Or is it accidental?

    It wasn't just the republicans who were fighting the proposed legislation... but the American people as well. You will recall that the democrats didn't exactly need any republican votes to get it passed... so acted accordingly... unfortunately they had to try to keep their own folks in line... something that was hard considering only a portion of would support a single player or public option... so they twisted arms in pretty impressive ways.

    You are free to worship whatever god you like, choose one version of cola as your fav over another, or even think the world would have been better with pees x instead of y ... but don't dare for a moment to try to reinvent history with regards to ObamaCare around or to me... it is a topic I have studied extensively.

    @sysrpl:

    Very nice, it's actually kind of impressive/interesting that you didn't use jQuery. I wouldn't even know how to begin animating things without it. Smiley

    Is there any reason why you load your scripts asynchronously? I wrote some GUI stuff via ExtJS that did similar things, but it was because the scripts where megabytes in size and we could load only parts the users needed on demand.

  • sysrpl

    @Bass: To animate all you do is repeatedly call setTimeout, then adjust styles based on an easing. A while back wrote a little easing browser for my own user defined easings (across multiple languages/platforms). Test page here.

    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html>
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    // a few example easings
    
    function linear(percent) { return percent; }
    function easy(percent) { return percent * percent * (3.0 - 2.0 * percent); }
    
    var negcospi = 1.61803398874989;
    
    function snap(percent) {
        percent = percent * percent;
        percent = (percent * 1.4) - 0.2;
        return 0.5 - Math.cos(Math.PI * percent) / negcospi;
    }
    
    function time() {
      return new Date().getTime() / 1000;
    }
    
    // the animate routine
    
    function animate(element, easing, duration, onanimate, ondone, start) {
      start = start == null ? time() : start;
      window.setTimeout(function() {
        var percent = (time() - start) / duration;
        var done = percent >= 1.0;
        if (done) {
            onanimate(element, 1.0);
            if (ondone) {
                ondone(element);
            }
        } else {
            onanimate(element, easing(percent));
            animate(element, easing, duration, onanimate, ondone, start);
        }
      }, 5);
    }
    
    // our onanimate callback and a play function
    
    function move(element, percent) {
      element.style.left = 2000 * percent + "px";
    }
    
    function play() {
      animate(document.getElementById("red"), snap, 2.0, move);
    }
    </script>
    <div id="red" style="background: red; position: relative; width: 100px; height: 100px;"></div>
    <button onclick="play()">Play</button>
    </body>
    </html>
