CCATP #413 Bart Busschots Programming By Stealth 4 of x (HTML In-line Elements)

In the previous installment Bart introduced us to the concept of block-level tags, and in-line tags. Block level tags define blocks of text like headers, paragraphs and lists, and starting a new block-level tag generally starts a new line in the page. Inline tags on the other hand effect a part of a block, and opening an inline tag generally doesn’t start a new line. In the previous installment we looked at some of the most important block-level tags, in this installment we’ll look at some of the most common in-line tags.

CCATP #409 – Bart Busschots on Programming By Stealth 2 of X – Introducing HTML

Bart Busschots is back with episode 2 of his Programming By Stealth series. He’ll take us on our first baby step towards programming by explaining how the Hyper-Text Markup Language works, better known to us all as HTML. HTML is not a true programming language, it is instead a simpler beast known as a markup language – it adds context to text.

Bart’s companion tutorial can be found on his website at bartbusschots.ie/s/2015/10/23/programming-by-stealth-2-of-x-basic-html.

CCATP #407 – Bart Busschots Programming By Stealth 1 of X (Introduction)

Chit Chat Across the Pond logoIt’s that time of the week again, it’s time for Chit Chat Across the Pond and this is episode 407 and I’m your host, Allison Sheridan . If you’re new here, Chit Chat Across the Pond has been an embedded part of the weekly show, the NosillaCast, since November 25th, 2007. I just decided to spin off Chit Chat Across the Pond as it’s own show and the feedback I’ve gotten from NosillaCast listeners has been overwhelmingly positive.

Chit Chat Across the Pond began as a weekly segment with Bart Busschots in Ireland (hence the pond bit) but over the years it has morphed into every other week with Bart, and the other every other week with me talking to someone I find interesting in tech. We’ve had some fabulous guests on in the past 8 years and I’ve got a long list of folks I still want to talk to so expect this series to go on as long as the NosillaCast.

All of that preamble is my way of saying we’re here with Bart Busschots where he’s starting a new series he’s calling Programming By Stealth. This episode originally aired as part of NosillaCast #544 on October 12th 2015, but I wanted it to be included in the standalone Chit Chat Across the Pond series. By the way, f you’re wondering what happened to Bart’s Security Lite segment, it’s staying with the NosillaCast.

The written tutorial that accompanies Bart’s Programming By Stealth – 1 of X can be found at bartbusschots.ie/s/2015/10/09/programming-by-stealth-1-of-x-introduction/.

Many HUGE thanks to Terry Austin from intelligentelectrons.com and @ielectrons for our wonderful new Chit Chat Across the Pond logo!

#544 Not Happy with Apple, Is it a Good Deal to Get a New iPhone Every Year, Encrypted Backups, Programming by Stealth Introduction

I am NOT happy with my Apple products this week. From an iPhone that had to be restored to factory settings, to an iPad with a dying battery down to an Apple Watch that restarted in German, it’s not been a happy week. I try to answer the question of whether these new plans by AT&T, Verizon and Apple are a good deal to get a new iPhone each year. I did a lot of research, read terms and conditions, even called Apple on the phone to make sure my math was sound so you might want to check out the spreadsheet. The research was meant to help you understand the options, not to tell you what the right answer was for you and your family. in Dumb Question Corner Lynn asks whether there’s a way to encrypt her Time Machine backup without starting over and losing her history and Bart gives her a great answer that extends to other backup services as well. In Chit Chat Across the Pond Bart introduces a new series called Programming by Stealth with episode 1 of X.
