web privacy

November 30, 2012

This week we heard about web privacy. You may be interested in having a look at an AOL user database leak that happened in 2006, you may have seen this or remember it happening.

You may also be interested in the search engine:

Privacy is an important topic to LIS and the world.


Final Project Style Guide Question

November 30, 2012

So, I’ve listened to the lecture for the week, I’ve scoured the final project rubric multiple times, and I’ve looked at the example style guides, but I’m still feeling a little lost. A few questions:

1. Am I correct when I state that there is no document that lays out specific requirements for the style guide?

2. If I am correct (above), are there any specific requirements, i.e. things that must be included?

3. Will we lose points if we end up changing our style/style guide between when we send it in and when we complete the project?

hi everyone!

I hope everyone had a very nice holiday, I did. Looking forward to ending the semester strongly, so close!

Removing the Widget for Mobile

November 16, 2012

I’m having the same problem as jayon615 in a previous post, but I am unable to moderate the comment I posted so it is not showing. I was able to remove the RSS button through the img class, no luck with the widget.

I’m using the worldcat search box on my page, code is:

<!– BEGIN search box –>
<div id=”wcs2w”>
<form name=”wcfw” id=”wcfw” method=”get” accept-charset=”UTF-8″ action=”; target=”_top” style=”margin: 0;”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”qt” value=”affiliate” />
<input type=”hidden” name=”ai” value=”SJSU_lsievers” />
<tr><td colspan=”2″ style=”text-align: center; font: 11px ‘Arial Unicode MS’, Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; line-height: 1.3em; margin: 0; text-align: center; width: 250px”><strong>Search for an item in libraries near you:</strong><br /><label for=”q” style=”color: #666;”>Enter title, subject or author</label></td></tr>
<td align=”right”><input type=”text” name=”q” id=”q” size=”20″ style=”border: 1px solid #999; font: 12px ‘Arial Unicode MS’, Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; width: 150px;” /></td>
<td align=”left”><input type=”image” name=”wcsbtn2w” id=”wcsbtn2w” src=”; alt=”Search WorldCat” title=”Search WorldCat” /></td>
<tr><td colspan=”2″ style=”font: 10px ‘Arial Unicode MS’, Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; margin: 0; text-align: center;”><a style=”color: #999″ href=”; title=”Visit”> >></a></td></tr>
<!– END search box –>

With that in mind, what do I need to put in my mobile_css to get this to hide?

Here is the page if that helps

Clarification about EC requirements

November 15, 2012

If we do the EC and use that method to make the jump to the actual homework page, do the requirements for a 5-second delay and friendly message at the redirect page stand (i.e. part II)?

Reducing the header image for the handheld style makes the font pretty much fall apart.  I don’t think there are enough pixels left to display the text well.  Is there any good solution for this?

Making the widget disappear

November 15, 2012

My widget, unlike the one on Rod’s page, is not in an iframe. So, I thought naming the <p> (tried both class and id) in and then setting {display:none;} for that name in the handheld css would do the trick as it had done with image elements. No so. Your assistance would be appreciated.
