I'm now working for a group out of Plano, doing primarily front-end work for mobile and online banking for credit unions. Time for me to get involved in the local user groups!

You probably want to gmail me if you need me directly. If I have to tell you what gmail address to guess at, you're not trying hard enough.

Interesting. I need to learn these bits of lingo :D

comment How do you deal with very long dropdown values?
Just a point of clarification, I believe the first line should be "as wide as the widest value"?

@thomasrutter thanks for making the same point I made in an answer 8 hours before you ;-)

So that's supposed to change in HTML5? Interesting.

No, this is two controls that appear together on one panel.

comment inspiration for thin interfaces
@jojo perhaps he meant "we can hear multiple things at one time and pick out the bits and pieces we want, but when reading we can only work sequentially". Much as how you can listen to a news broadcast and a sports broadcast, and walk away with most of the details from both (the parts you found pertinent anyways).

comment Files size units: “KiB” vs “KB” vs “KB”
It's not really a concensus so much as an official standard ... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibibyte

comment Undo History - Why limit it?
Fortunately everything I write gets to live in someone else's stack so I no longer have to worry about such things. Ah the fortunes of web development.

comment Undo History - Why limit it?
No, that's not it. They capture every few seconds, not every single action that you make. Do you only do UI work or do you also code?

comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
@Charles, how do you figure? a) it's longer than a comment, b) he's asking about the control to pick a file, and I'm saying that it's a native "OS" element, and c) when I put this up the question was brand new. I'm going to bite my tongue now. Additionally, there was a moderator not two posts above my last one. If it was truly a comment masquerading as an answer, flag it as such, and let the mods convert it to a comment.

comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
Could you possibly give examples where "browse" is common usage not in webforms?

comment Control to select (not open) a file on windows
@NickBedford that is not a file picker. That is a textbox with an ellipsis next to it.
