Google offers a very impressive map service. Between JS and CSS, styling is usually very straightforward with tools like the Styling Wizard from Google: https://mapstyle.withgoogle.com/ However, some things can fall through the cracks. Point of the matter – the arrow on the InfoWindow/Bubble/Box. Normally, the location bubble appears above the marker. To change the placement…Details
I have a project that requires the use of a tablet (i.e. no physical keyboard or mouse). It is reliant on touchscreen and the on-screen keyboard (OSK). The tablet is also connected to a television via HDMI. Funny thing about Windows 10. If I am in “Tablet Mode” and plug in an HDMI, it kicks…Details
Windows updates can come at most inopportune moments. For most, it probably makes sense to force updates. But what about people with businesses that depend on a computer running?

I recently purchase a Lenovo Yoga 900. To get to the BIOS, typically one would hit F2, F10, or some similar key combination on boot. However, the Lenovo Yoga 900 simply requires the press of a special button that usually means finding a paper clip.
In the world of art, design, and 3D – there are so many kinds of masks. With Illustrator, I came across two so far. The first is a clipping mask. This is a mask that works off of the object paths/shapes. The second is an opacity or alpha mask. This works off of the colors.…Details
Today, I’ve been having a problem submitting large-ish files to P4. Specifically, the two files in question were around 100MB. P4 would look like it was submitting, then eventually timeout with a network error (note: not explicitly a timeout error). Eventually, I was successful for one of the files after the 5th or so time…Details
