Inline jQuery misses CSS change event in IE10

The goal is to achieve slow rotation of an image infinitely. So, the trick i thought of using two CSS classes. First class is a base css. Another defines rotation and transform delay. Here are these two: .image_basic { overflow:hidden; } .image_rotate { -webkit-transform:rotate(3600deg); -moz-transform:rotate(3600deg); -ms-transform:rotate(3000deg); -o-transform:rotate(3600deg); transform:rotate(3600deg); -webkit-transition-duration: 400s; -moz-transition-duration: 400s; -ms-transition-duration: 400s; -o-transition-duration: 400s; transition-duration: 400s; transition-timing-function:ease-out ; transition-delay:0.2s; -webkit-transition-property: -webkit-transform; -moz-transition-property: -moz-transform; -ms-transition-property: -moz-transform; -o-transition-property: -o-transform; transition-property: transform; overflow:hidden; } It’s a transform for ten rotation over 400 seconds. This roughly gives you slow rotation indefinitely (assuming 400 seconds ~ 6 mins is enough time to stay…

They are following me!

They are following me everywhere. Yes, I admit I’ve been there. But that’s not a crime! What is more surprising than you find internet marketing ads are following you? I visited Dominio.com and NetowrkSolutions.com yesterday, and today found them following me wherever I go. On totally different content, repeatedly and on multiple sites. Here are screen-shots. I know the only way to get rid is to clear browser cookies. I did and they went away! [Note: Typically I use AdBlockPlus, but these days I am trying to understand how AdWords works.] – Ankit

Saving Money with IRCTC

Booking a ticket at IRCTC means spending a few bucks extra. Well, it does not bother much as it saved my time and petrol. Here is a tip to save some money, but before that, a concern to raise! IRCTC charges flat Rs 10 on each ticket as their service charge. But why? Cards payment industry has a painful clause that merchants has to bear any fraud. For example, if a fraudster books a ticket with stolen card and later the card owner files a chargeback, IRCTC has to pay the amount back. But the fraudster has finished enjoying travel…

Internet Speed at IITK

Recently Youtube has launched a tool to test your network’s speed and see historical data too. Here is what it shows for IITK’s ISP (vsnl-iitk). (for vsnlproxy. as of 25 April,2010) It means at IITK people download videos at an average speed of 5.3 kilo kbps. People here enjoy the best internet/networking infrastructure in UP (or probably in India too). The average speed is almost 10 times better than what an average Indian gets. If you see carefully, the average for Kanpur is pulled up 3 times compared to rest of India and UP. Why? I think it’s just because…

In this post, I tried to pick some of the best designs from Indian academic world. Here go some recommendations first – Rich colour photographs: They add liveliness to your website. Some of the academic websites have photographs of saturated colours and these are…

India and Internet

You may have heard – the reach of Internet in India is increasing rapidly. VoIP has came in, 3G & IPtv is at the doorstep, bandwidth prices are falling down, BSNL’s netPC launched, but I still do not see a great future. I do not see awareness of .in domains, for promoting Hindi, I do not see true Indian web-hosting companies, I do not see IT professionals solving India’s a few fundamental problems. We have built a good economy by serving west IT companies. The time is now to focus inside! Lets see where do we stand in the massive…

Understanding Errors

The following solution just came random to my mind and it worked! Problem: While surfing around, I came across a website whose content encoding is not being supported with my latest Firefox v3.5.4 showed me unsupported compression error. Content Encoding Error The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression. * Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Solution: As per my knowledge web-servers generally use GZ compression and Firefox well supports that. Then what’s wrong here? Digging a bit into Firefox’s ‘about:config‘, I did…

Buzzword: Cloud Computing

Youtube link for video: Larry Ellison – What The Hell Is Cloud Computing Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle Corporation, describes all the fuzz around cloud computing in a short introduction. He touches very reasonable concern – “computing industry is the only industry more fashion driven than woman’s fashion“ Of course, this is true. Think about the last 10 years, how many new languages introduced, how many new versions of existing languages, new frameworks are released everyday, etc; But what about the compatibility with old? Isn’t today we (as a system owner, who actually pays for software development) want to have…
