In this week’s episode I’ll tell you about a document scanner I actually like called the Epson ES-300W. Then I’ll explain how Rogue Amoeba’s Fission software will allow me to easily give you chapter marks in Programming By Stealth. Then we’ll have some quality time with Bart Busschots talking Security Bits.
Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, December 2, 2018, and this is show number 708.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
In this week’s installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots takes into the land of Bootstrap dropdown menus. He explains the differences between dropdown and selects in HTML, and how there’s two different kinds of dropdowns – menus and navigation. The descriptions of how to make the Bootstrap dropdowns takes a while, but when he puts the pieces together, the code is quite sensible. You can find this episode in your podcatcher of choice under Programming By Stealth, or the full Chit Chat Across the Pond feed. And as always you can listen right over at www.podfeet.com/…
Patreon and Amazon
It’s the holiday season and if you happened to need a scanner and followed the link in the shownotes to the Epson I just talked about, any shopping you did after hitting that link may send a small percentage back to support the show. You don’t even have to buy the scanner to help us out. If that’s a lot of bother, you could be like the fine Martin Stein who went to podfeet.com/patreon and signed up to donate a monthly amount to support the show. It’s a little bit confusing because I charge patrons weekly, but he figured out how to make it monthly. He put in the number he wanted to donate monthly but of course that would become 4.3 times as much as he wanted because I bill weekly. Then he simply set his monthly limit to the same number. I am pretty sure this is the same thing Frank Petrie figured out when signed up to support the show. Please consider helping out through Patreon but if it’s not good for you or your family, don’t do it, and don’t feel guilty about it. Just pin down one of your relatives over the holidays and tell them all about the show. Thank you so much to all of you who help support the show.
