    Just back from weekend with my sister towards Ludlow. Quite nice time with the old ratbag and met up for lunch with old workmate but driving there was nightmare! Just one traffic jam after another. Not sure I can face it again.

      Had it last week and no problems at all. Tripped at top of wooden stairs yesterday in sister's Victorian house, slid all the way down and landed on tiled floor at bottom. Bit of a brooze on arm, else nowt at all. I am Superman!

            Darn it! None of the games on my kids' interactive nature game site was working although haven't done anything with it for years. Turns out there is a now a new undocumented element style property called scale. Changing a global variable name from scale to myscale sorted it. Same thing happened years ago when I was using x and y for position.

              Tea has been slow braised beef short ribs, boneless, in a Kansa City style sauce, with chips

              The ribs were out of a packet; I'm not going to all that trouble on a Monday evening

              Nice enough, though I don't think I'd bother having them too often

                Not actually undocumented: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/scale

                But it's a good reason not to use global variables in JavaScript - you never know what they'll add to the global scope next

                  isn't that jquery's $ ?

                  But yep - create and use your own namespace for safety...

                    Oh well, onwards and upwards!
                    so much better without work getting in the way!

                      When jQuery was first being created by John Resig there were already a number of libraries that defined a global $ variable, so he included an explicit way of ensuring that jQuery didn't hijack it if you happened to also be using one of them: jQuery.noConflict(). You can even use it to run two different versions of jQuery simultaneously on the same page if you really have to
