I built a tool for my wife to help her generate crochet patterns.

Choose the number of rows and columns you want and the number of colors to extract from the image used to generate the pattern. Upload the image and transform it by resizing, moving, or rotating to get everything where you want it. Click "render" and it will flatten everything into your grid.

When it's done you can right-click and "save as..." to save the image for crochet reference.

In the latest StackOverflow bounty, a user is trying to redirect from a website to an app. If that app isn't installed, they want to go to the install page.

My answer explains that this is called a Deferred Deep Link and provides a simple javascript method of doing it using a hidden iFrame and a setTimeout.

Upvote's appreciated!

Proud dad moment: my boy is teaching two Icelandic boys from school how to play Pokemon: Silver edition on his Gameboy. They are enthralled. Minecraft has been turned off in favor of this new challenge. Language is no barrier in the quest for pikachu.

@moondoggy just missed you in IRC. You figure out what you need?

Intro post!

On this account I mainly plan to talk about my writing, and my online creative shenanigans.

I'm in the process of setting up a gopher space, which will feature my fiction as well as a blog chronicling my adventures in writing a five-book scifi series.

I also want to experiment with static webpages and online 'zines.

I'll do my best to link to things as they come online, and share project updates, and generally stop being so freakin shy about my work!

In this weeks StackOverflow code bounty, a user was having issues with a Sketch plugin (javascript). It looks like it was a simple manner of the author not undrestanding asyncs.
