Woohoo, I’m Two!

It’s been a while… and turing two is worth sharing. Hopefully we’ll get back into a better blogging routine!

I had a great time at my birthday party! Loved it!

And here’s daddy and my silly video… though I’m not crazy about showing everyone.  Skip ahead to the end to see why… :\

18 Months!

Hello!
On Sunday, January 24th, I turned 18 months old! I can pretty much do anything and everything right now – run, throw a ball (especially for Willow), say many words, feed myself, throw a great tantrum, and more. I’m also working on learning to jump – that’s a hard one.
I began a new school earlier this month. I now go to Bethlehem for 2-year-old childcare. I’m the youngest one in the program, but I am having so much fun. I really like all of my new friends and LOVE to run around in the gym. I am also really good at painting, drawing, and coloring, as we have art every day.

Mom and dad took me to McDonald’s for my 18-month birthday. I thought it was because they knew that I love playing on the playground there, but it turns out that they want me to get a job there!  Dad helped my apply, but I haven’t received a call for an interview yet.

Well, time for some beans and applesauce. 
Take care!
love,
Natalie

Christmas Video 2009

The envelopes for our Christmas cards got slightly ruined again this year.  Good thing the documentary crew from the hit NBC show “The Office” was there to film what happened.

Chrome OL Bug Fixed

Just wanted to give a quick update on the Chome ordered list bug that I found. They have patched webkit and released it! And I can attest that the developer channel version I’m running (4.0.249.30) no longer breaks when viewing this test page. The system works!

Learning the Animal Sounds

Since college, Steve’s career path has always been questioned by others.  Well, he’s a Nolte/Janke – he should be a teacher, right?  Steve is absolutely wonderful with children, however, as you can see from the video, he has made the correct career choice.

Picasa 3.5, now with name tags and more

Official Google Blog

via Picasa 3.5, now with name tags and more.

This is a very cool feature that I’m really excited is now available.  Will probably take a long to time to go through all our pictures, though!

BTW this post is a quickie via the new “Send to” feature of Google Reader that I learned how to make work with WordPress.

It’s N-oh-l-t-ee!

I was reading a blog post that was only written for the purpose of explaining how to pronounce the author’s name. One of the comments had a great link to a website that gives excellent help on pronouncing names. The site is plainly called Pronounce Names.

I looked up my last name, Nolte, and sure enough it was phonetically spelled very well. It even has an audio widget so that one can listen to it.

The other name that gets butchered a lot is my wife’s: Rachelle. They got it right once again, but no audio recording yet. You can record and submit your own version right through the site if you’d like. I’ll see if I can convince her to do that tonight! :)

Roman Numeral Bug in Google Chrome

I don’t usually come across bugs in software that have not already been reported, so I thought it would be cool to share this really odd bug I found in Google Chrome a while ago. For some reason when creating a simple Ordered List in HTML and setting the type to Roman Numerals (both lower and upper will break I think), Chrome blows up once you hit the number 2,388!

Check out my test case here: http://stevenolte.com/chrome-ol-bug.html

chrome-crash

I’ve seen it crash in v2 and also the latest 3.0.195.10. I did of course report the bug.

Update: galderon pointed out how it’s only happening for roman numerals that are longer than 12 characters (great work Doug!) The lowest number that is greater than 12 characters just happens to be 2,388. Writing a quick Perl script reveals the following additional numbers that would also crash it (but we stop at 4,000 since browsers stop writing the roman numerals at that point):

2388: MMCCCLXXXVIII
2788: MMDCCLXXXVIII
2838: MMDCCCXXXVIII
2878: MMDCCCLXXVIII
2883: MMDCCCLXXXIII
2887: MMDCCCLXXXVII
2888: MMDCCCLXXXVIII
3288: MMMCCLXXXVIII
3338: MMMCCCXXXVIII
3378: MMMCCCLXXVIII
3383: MMMCCCLXXXIII
3387: MMMCCCLXXXVII
3388: MMMCCCLXXXVIII
3488: MMMCDLXXXVIII
3688: MMMDCLXXXVIII
3738: MMMDCCXXXVIII
3778: MMMDCCLXXVIII
3783: MMMDCCLXXXIII
3787: MMMDCCLXXXVII
3788: MMMDCCLXXXVIII
3828: MMMDCCCXXVIII
3833: MMMDCCCXXXIII
3837: MMMDCCCXXXVII
3838: MMMDCCCXXXVIII
3848: MMMDCCCXLVIII
3868: MMMDCCCLXVIII
3873: MMMDCCCLXXIII
3877: MMMDCCCLXXVII
3878: MMMDCCCLXXVIII
3882: MMMDCCCLXXXII
3883: MMMDCCCLXXXIII
3884: MMMDCCCLXXXIV
3886: MMMDCCCLXXXVI
3887: MMMDCCCLXXXVII
3888: MMMDCCCLXXXVIII
3889: MMMDCCCLXXXIX
3898: MMMDCCCXCVIII
3988: MMMCMLXXXVIII

Update 2: The issue report I filed has been assigned. w00t!
