    The chats are a good way to keep me in line with doing something each week and my intention was to begin moving through more of the js stuff earlier today but walked into a broken computer

    @Lilyheart
    That's one reason I wanted to do the chats! This whole thing started because a few people wanted to do FCC with me over the summer. It just snowballed from there!

    @lantech19446
    apparently you touched on something needed in the community
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Agreed!
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    you managed to do exactly what I envision happening to me, come up with a great idea have lots of interest and no way to monetize it

    I've been having a problem miniputating my backgrounds display. I've been trying to have a fixed background and have div scroll down while the body stays fixed.
    Do you know the effect I'm talking about ?

    @Lilyheart
    I might fundraise for the group down the line (I'm over $100 in already), but more like fund-raise for a nonprofit.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    wow, for domains?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Various bits and bobs that add up.

    @davidjcastner
    @rmaylie9560 I can take a look at your code if you want

    @lantech19446
    meetup allows you to collect a few dollars per person for hosting the meetup, even if you did like 3 dollars a person you could probably make that 100 back and maybe have enough to have snacky type stuff at the meetings without going out of pocket on that too
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Share the code Rob! We can team effort it.
    @lantech19446 that has a whole 'nother layer of complication right now no one probably wants to hear about. Long story short... Our space in the library is being given to us free because I don't charge for meetings.
    And meetup (slash wepay) takes a cut... more than I'd rather.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    lol lily it's a whole level of complication I'm all too familiar with working in a library.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I'd rather just do a good old fashioned fundraiser.
    yar!
    Ugh, it's $35 a meeting just to serve food... No thanks.
    But it's free space for the summer. Deal with past a little bit later.
    Robert Maylie
    @rmaylie9560
    I tend to resort back to old code (that works) after a failed edit. I can post a little later. Would you mind taking a look @davidjcastner
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @rmaylie9560 I didn't even include the expense of the domain I didn't end up using :p
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    yea, we're 50 but we don't charge non-profits unless they're selling stuff.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    That 35 isn't the room fee. That's the food fee. I don't remember the room fee because it didn't apply.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @rmaylie9560 yes just post the code when you are ready
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    they charge you a food fee? that's the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long time.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Found out an interesting tidbit of information. our montcode domain almost wasn't available. MCCC's Software Developer Academy almost took that domain!
    It makes sense if they keep having people who don't know how to clean up after themselves.
    Looked it up. If a non-profit charges a fee, the room is $25, for profit is $50. If refreshments will be served, a non-refundable fee of $35.00 per function is charged
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    that's just a fact of having a library, and generally is what the room fee covers. I've worked for MCLINC in the past and I can list at least 6 member libraries with far less resources where that would be a terminable offense for the director to even think of it.

    @rmaylie9560
    Thanks Dave

    @Lilyheart
    Hmmm... tribute page or skip to exercises.....
    Actually.. I want a button on the chat.montcode.com page that hides the video... for meetings like this...
    Sounds more fun to do :grinning:
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I'd be interested in seeing how that works, not sure I'd understand it yet but would be interesting to see
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I'll probably use jQuery's slide up http://api.jquery.com/slideup/
    I have a page somewhere with lots of jquery slides and fades. lemme find the link.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    so once you do slidup could you then change the button and do .slidedown to bring the chat visible again?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Has no backend, so nothing is persistent but feel free to poke around the code.
    It would be like the + symbol on that todo page thing. here is the js file https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1413496/Misc/projects/todo/assets/js/todos.js
    it's probably slideToggle that I'll actually use, but yeah

    hey guys, just joined up!
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    It didn't take long to go through the exercises, just a lot of them
    @karpimpski Welcome!!!

    @karpimpski
    thanks @davidjcastner ! where from Montgomery County is everybody from?

    @Lilyheart
    Did everyone see the final version of the color game? I built in David's evil setting that he wanted. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1413496/Misc/projects/color-game/index.html
