Me Playing with Step.js
So today I played with Step.js
The sync works how i expected it to be. Simply call this() whenever you want to move to the next step.
The parallel workflow didn’t work how i thought it would. You can’t run multiple steps in parallel. Instead items in a step could be run in parallel. To run in parallel simply call this.parallel() and all those items in that step will fire up. The next step will not run till all parallel items of that step are complete
The group workflow is interesting. You can add items to a group and they will all immediately run, but the next step will also run and wont care for the group to finish.
Here is my Step gist with examples of what Step does:
How to trick gmail to always show your images
Recently I realized that users were not looking at those sexy images i was putting in my newsletters. I put in a lot of effort into those images and couldn’t rely on the users desire to click on show me the images. How could they know that they are missing out on without viewing them. I would like them to should show up by default. This got me in to exploring how i could trick gmail to always show my images.
This is what I found:
So gmail will by default show images of trusted senders. That sounds interesting. This got me to explore how to be a trusted sender.
So anyone whose in my contact list is trusted. And anyone i reply to twice gets added there automatically. Thats just great now.
So now to have my images appear all i have to do is in the from header have an email address of a person whose in the receivers contact list. And as a bouns guess who is always in the receivers contact list. The receiver himself.
Is this captcha for real? Got this while signing up for tumblr. Does it really have to be this hard to detect humans?
