About a year ago, I bought my wife and I a new phone for each of us. For her it was a Galaxy Note 5. For me, I got a LG G4. At that point in time, the G4 was considered slightly below par compared to the Note 5, in terms of price and branding. I had aimed for a V10 but there was completely no news about it being available in Singapore.

So I’ve gotten around to installing Disqus for this blog. This post is just a test post for testing the commenting system.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with some remote teams to collaborate on a project. One question that cropped up was how do I pass the project specific changes to the remote team members without committing the credentials to the repository.

I was recently posed with a question on how to run Adobe Flash files in the browser. As far as I know, you can write a simple HTML page to embed the Flash file (SWF) in a page and load in the browser (http://superuser.com/questions/116352/how-can-i-play-an-swf-file-using-google-chrome). I also recall that any decent browser would be able to load the SWF file as-is without having to do anything extra.

However, loading the SWF file in Chrome on Linux does not work; loading the file causes Chrome to prompt the user to download it - definitely not the reaction I was hoping from the browser. Trying to solve this problem lead to learn a new thing about MIME types in Linux.

This post was written a few years back, but I was still able to glean some gems from it. Specifically, the section "Simplified Object Copying" was something that could be applied on plain vanilla JavaScript. The other section "Changing in referenced object does not trigger events"
