Testing the waters: javascript

March 26, 2010
So, it’s been a while… Mr. Geek has been driving me insane in his geekdom. I just wish that I am more part of the outcome than the whole process of any of his geeky innovations, wishful thinking or too selfish? But in my defense, I can say that most of Mr. geek’s projects hardly get a closure. You know, how there’s never the best computer or software, you are always upgrading? Likewise, all of Mr. Geek’s projects get revisited for upgrades. Last time, I told you about our laptop turned digital frame – it’s now been upgraded to a fancier looking frame which obviously cost us a visit to Michaels that involved at least an hour to check out the perfect size and fit. But I have to agree, it looks prettier and gets a lot of compliments from our guest (photo to follow soon). And okay, the best part – it’s voice activated now! I can talk to the computer to tell me the time, weather and call people. I have to tell you the story behind the “voice activated” drama sometime else.
Latest Geeky Influence in the house:

I had my first javascript lesson yesterday. Yes, you got that right – “I” am learning javascript and it’s not too hard to guess that I am using my privileges of the easily available Mr. Geek brain in my home. For those of you who have no clue about programming, javascript is a programming language… Oh wait, it’s an “interpreted” language ( as clarified by Mr. Geek) for making interactive websites. I am not going to elaborate what I learned but now when I realize the best way to get Mr. Geek to listen is to talk his way through programming, I decided to give it a shot. It’s not that “over the head” as I thought it’d be but you know I have a little geek in me that pops up once in a while and I am totally going to blame my interest on javascript to that little girl in me. I just have to see how long I can survive this! The best part of the 2 hour class yesterday? The look on Mr. Geek’s face when I said I am interested in javascript. In 5 minutes, there was a presentation up on our TV screen and a happy yappy geek so excited to talk about the thing he likes the best.
Update: Here’s the javscript 101 presentation prepared by Mr. Geek.

    HURRAY!!!! NEW POST!!!! I was just about to give up on you.

    Although… Mr. Geek’s javascript presentation didn’t keep my attention, I guess I’m not geeky enough, although I do feel very proud of my new office webpage 🙂
