Isaiah 5:20-21 - Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

I did not start this fight, but I will defend myself and my faith.  All I was looking for if SheerID was shady or not and point out some alarming trends against veterans and others that's all.

Isaiah 5:20-23 20 - Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

Psalm 27:1 - The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Yea, I'm one of those Gun Toting, Bible Believers Myself!

There are good preachers and denominations and bad ones... you have to know what to look for and not be deceived.

I know there will be another question coming on how I test them:

Revelation 22:18 - For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Revelation 22:19 - And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.

After further investigations looks like some businesses are NOT Honoring DD-214 Veteran Designation on their drivers license; they rather punish them with shady marketing schemes for a discount. Honor it simply or NOT at all.

Real smart, just keep poking an army who knows how to kill you a 101 ways... Just saying!  Sure you will loose a little on a sale, but Good PR and a Army will shop there instead of going to your competitors business.

Looks like Home Depot has dropped Military Discounts? If you search for Military Discounts on Home Depots site results in Military Related Item's they want to sell you... How Sad.

DDG search returns these armed forces discounts. Some of these looks real fishy to me. A word to the WISE - Be On Alert For These Weasels!

Anyone ever had any dealings w/ SheerID.com?

All I'm seeing so far is Delays & Excuses, Resubmit...Repeat, even from home/Lowes; all the while this ID Management & Marketing Company sells your info to shady third-parties. All this hassle for Military Discounts at Lowes, Bass Pro Shops and more.  At Lowes all that use to be needed was a Military ID... NOT any more! I'm helping my dad with this new digital enemy. 

They clam to help leading brands "use a gated, exclusive offers" (SPAM You Mindless) "to capture and retain high-value customers" (Dystopian Propaganda Marketing) from lucrative segments such as students, teachers, and the military.

Thanks for the CSS Advice! A little harsh, but I knew what I was getting into when I came here  ::)
I already know... No Whining!
I've also have a certificate in web design from around 2k. I've seen first hand what Adobe and MS does to code  >:(

The pt/pc css pun was a !important sarcastic joke  ;D

I agree Bluefish can drive you nuts at times!
Syntax highlighting can be turned off or changed.

You might like small Geany Editor or bloated Eclipse IDE better? I prefer smaller with some conveniences.

WP security woes are mostly related to extensions as I understand it? Don't add any or unnecessary phun will surly follow.

Font Rendering & Multi-Displays Works Fine on Some Distros: The Fedora Design Suite this is what I mainly use. I also like Xfce a lot too.

Just add, Code Editor, FTP and a Firewall (GNOME3 Thing? Xfce has it, including real screen savers!)

Fedora Xfce Spin has Default Styling and Tools like Debian Does.

I have tested other linux distros, but I keep coming back to Fedora for now.  Linux Mint Xfce or LMDE would be my second choice. Another one I'm watching is PureOS.

I don't even bother with supporting IE any more. Most will use Firefox like me or some WebKit browser, I use  Otter for that. It's a privacy browser, unlike google chrome.

I try to use % for everything, I just wished I figure out how use them for media queries too ;)

I might have to find/make a chart for rem/em.... my head is throbbing again.  Since I started out in fine art and switched to commercial art... look at the bight side, my layouts are not in pt/pc   ::)

I use Bluefish Code Editor on Linux ;)

I use Bluefish Code Editor on Linux. I like static sites and not a fan of cms or WordPress with that Hack Me Sign on it's back! Here's Why -- In 2019's Hacked CMS websites 94% was WordPress all others were between 0.9%-4.3%.

Art / Open Source Software
« on: 21 May 2020, 04:29:57 pm »
I was able to replace all my closed source software w/ Open Source including Windows7. Sure Linux is a little different, but I'm all right w/ that. Closed Source, like MS, Adobe and others are becoming FleeceWare Subscriptions and locking your files in the cloud like Adobe does. The next Windows is going to be subscription based like the enterprise edition is. Yes, those soft-mugger monthly fees just keeps increasing.  How much is too much for you? Adobe is already over $50 per month...

For Graphics: Inkscape, Krita, GIMP, RawTherapee
For WebDev: Bluefish
For FTP: FileZilla
For Office Suite: LibreOffice
For DTP: Scribus

This is the main software I use daily.

I use these css media queries to cover most screen sizes.

@media only screen and (min-width:801px) and (max-width:1024px){
@media only screen and (min-width:541px) and (max-width:800px){
@media only screen and (min-width:481px) and (max-width:540px){
@media only screen and (min-width:321px) and (max-width:480px){
@media only screen and (min-width:200px) and (max-width:320px){

I prefer % & px over those rem'em bad headaches... get the pun?

I don't use use css/js frameworks, however I do look at them for some ideas. Most are so bloated it's not even funny.

I like caniuse.com to see how widely supported that new css idea is... Most of the time I just stick to tried and true css - keep it simple and supported.

I am aware this is an old topic, however I started out in DOS 3.1 & RunTime Windows (You could run a single windows app in dos like ms word or aldus pagemaker) then I went to a Mac w/ System7, after I sold the system years later, went back to Windows 98/NT/ME/W7. For the most part it's the apps that makes the difference for creative not the os most of the time, at least for me.

NeXT I went to Fedora Linux and never looked back at Apple, Microsoft and Adobe your services are no longer need 8}

The nice thing about Linux is you have choice of what desktop environment you want. I mostly use GNOME3 or Xfce. I hope this helps?

General Discussion / DEAD hgroup tag > HTML5

I hand coded some pages in HTML5 w/ the <hgroup> Tag.. it was killed by the W3C!  I got <mad>, then <real-mad> went back to div & span tags. Then I got <real-happy> again.

Were you a WC3 Victim too?

HTML / CSS / Sharing A Simple CSS Grid
« on: 20 May 2020, 04:14:57 pm »
Sharing A CSS Grid

The CSS
.row{clear:both;width:100%;display:block;margin:0 auto 0 auto;padding:0;vertical-align:top}
[class^="col"]{display:inline-block;position:relative;margin:0.5% 0.5% 0.5% 0.7%;padding:0.3%;vertical-align:top}

.col1{width:100%}
.col2{width:47.9%}
.col3{width:31%}
.col4{width:22.8%}
.col34{width:73%}
.col2s{width:45.5%!important;float:left}
.wauto{width:auto}
.w{width:94%}

ul.col{margin:0 auto 0 auto;position:relative;margin:0 1% 0 1%}

The HTML
<div class="row">Row Row Your Boat

<div class="col2">Down Columns</div>
<div class="col2">In The Steam</div>
</div>

What I'm looking to do is making it slimmer if possible?  It's responsive too, w/ the proper code.
