    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    @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!

    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?

    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
    Hi @karpimpski !

    @Lilyheart did you make that color game? btw I'm from Pottstown
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I did using a code along found in Colt Steele's bootcamp on Udemy.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @Lilyheart Love the new David setting! muhahaha
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart I like it! how did you generate the other colors? did you make them completely random or did you base them off of the correct color?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    You would! An Adam number of square and a David level of range is just an evil game.
    @karpimpski There is a range selecter you can choose. Full is a totally random generated colors. The "David" level randomly generates nearby colors. That was fun to figure out. If you really wanna dig into the code, here is the js https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1413496/Misc/projects/color-game/colorgame.js
    search for "function closeRandomColor"
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart thanks!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    meh, I can just put it in here! I'm too tired lately.
    function closeRandomColor(str) {
        var rgb = str.match(/\d+/g);
        for (var i = 0; i < rgb.length; i++) {
            rgb[i] = Number(rgb[i]);
            var variance = Math.floor(Math.random() * 60) * (Math.random() < 0.5 ? -1 : 1);
            console.log(rgb[i] + "+" + variance);
    
            if(rgb[i] + variance > 255 || rgb[i] + variance < 0) {
                rgb[i] = rgb[i] - variance;
            } else {
                rgb[i] = rgb[i] + variance;
            }
        }
        return "rgb(" + rgb[0] + ", " + rgb[1] + ", " + rgb[2] + ")";
    }

    @karpimpski
    hey guys, can you let me know what you think of my button hover and click effects? I think they're pretty good!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I send the closeRandomColor function the string of the last color determined and it finds numbers close to it.
    Nice toggle! The font color is a bit hard to see on :hover tho
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart yeah, I noticed that. other than that, do you like the use of gradients or do you think it's too distracting? I think it looks nice
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @karpimpski Nice job! Yea I would change the font color though. A minimal gradient is always a great way to spice up the looks, so I might go with a slightly less noticeable gradient
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I think it's nice, but if you think it "might" be too distracting, then someone out there will definitely think that! Which leaves you a choice. You can leave it alone because you truly want to stick to your vision, or (what I would do) is use the gradient, but maybe make it a little less obvious. Closer colors.
    Or what David said because he used better words :p I can't word today.
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @davidjcastner yeah, this is just a little test thing to try to figure out. I'm not using different colors @Lilyheart, just a different darkness, but I get what you guys are saying and I agree. thanks!

    @karpimpski
    can you guys refresh and see if you like it better this way?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Sometimes you gotta stick to your design vision and sometimes you gotta compromise :smirk:
    Use a lighter font color (white or almost white) is my only advice.
    Michael Karpinski
    @karpimpski
    @Lilyheart sounds good. again, this is just a test for the button but I'll mess around with the colors now and see if I can make it look nicer. thanks!
