When an event listener such as a window ‘resize’ fires, sometimes it will fire 72,000 times per second. That means your callback function is also firing 72,000 times in a row, bogging down the browser.
This isn’t as much of a problem as it used to be, but debouncing is still needed and should still be used.
You finally upgrade your motherboard and processor, but you can’t boot.
In fact, you can’t even see your harddrive in the BIOS or the OS installer.
What the heck is going on?
Well, the explanation gets hairy… But thankfully, there are two solutions, and one of them is pretty simple!
These days, it’s all about the GREEN! Green energy, renewables, low carbon footprint, etc. While that all sounds nice, what would actually happen if we just ditched fossil fuels – coal, oil, and gas – overnight? It turns out it’s WAY more scary than you might think…
Superglue is awesome… Except when you glue your fingers together. It’s also easy to waste a lot of it, and you don’t want to get yourself into a sticky situation by wasting money these days. So…
All the secrets of superglue In less than 60s!
Software RAID is great, especially for servers. While you can use RAID for increased speed, most people use RAID mirroring so that all data is written to two identical disks.
If one disk fails, your server stays up because the 2nd drive still works. But what happens when a drive fails?
The replacement process obviously requires your hosting company to the replace the drive.
But both before and after the physical drive replacement, you’ve got some work to do!
You may have heard the word e-fuel, but most people have no idea what the stuff actually is.
Same with biodiesel…
Along with electric cars, this stuff is supposed to be the future, man! But IS it?
Join me for a deep dive into the wonderful (green) world of alternative energy.
It’s quite a show…
Everyone knows what a magnet is. But have you ever heard of an electret?
Yeah, me neither!
In fact, there’s an entire branch of science/engineering that gets very little attention these days – outside of very specific applications that like 3 people know about.
Join me for a look into the amazing world of electrostatics!
Last time you were on an airplane, did you notice those little “antennas” on the backs of the wings?
Turns out they’re not antennas at all!
And that’s where it gets interesting…
From balloons and carpet to winter afternoons and lightning, we’ve got ourselves a bit of a mystery.
Join me for a look at the wild world of static electricity!
You know the drill: You’ve got an image, audio, video, or document file.
Either you can’t open it, or you need to convert it to a different format to send to someone else.
You could use complicated software, but why not do it in just a few easy clicks?
With File Converter, you can convert video files, turn video into audio files, change Word docs into PDFs, and a whole lot more.
And it’s FREE!
Everything these days is powered by batteries: power tools, mowers, cars, etc.
But why does this even work?
A quick look at the power provided by lithium-based batteries should make even armchair techies cringe!
Something doesn’t add up…
So, what’s The Secret?
