Help! I'm having trouble showing full size images in Wix's gallery.

I'm trying to make a UX/UI portfolio, and I'm using Wix. I have images that I need to show in a gallery view, but when I put them in to the gallery, Wix shrinks them down to an unworkable size. The only way to view the image full size is to right click on it, open it up in a new tab, and hit the magnifying glass. [more inside]

How do I get Microsoft Office to believe that I'm using English?

My computer was in French at one time. Now it's in English, but Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel) object to this, and keep setting my text as being in French. It's annoying, and I can't figure out how to get it to stop. [more inside]

Why Adobe won't save in PDF/X-1a:2001 format

I am trying to upload a .pdf file to a publisher. They require the file to be in a specific .pdf format. I have been on the phone with both the publisher and Adobe for days. Neither has been able to help me convert the file to the format the publisher needs. Has anybody else had this problem and what did you do to fix if? Is it fixable? [more inside]

Is Java for databases a thing in 2019? If not, what else?

I want to learn more about databases. While at an extremely boring temp job, I completed the first three courses of this (free for me) PHP/SQL course. I want to keep beefing up my database skills. Here are my choices:
  1. Lynda.com, to which I have free access granted by my newer, better job. A bewildering array of options.
  2. A community college database track, which starts with an online Java for Beginners course.
Is this community college class worth doing? I have this image in my head of Java being a relic from the early days of the web, but I'm a beginner and could be very wrong. Should I take the Java class? If not, what should I explore on Lynda? [more inside]

Extra Portable Device

My kid is taking a course this summer that will involve programming in Construct 3 and Sketchpad. The course is BYO computer, and he does already have a robust desktop, but I would like to get him a laptop to use for just this course. Will something like a Chromebook be able to support these cloud-based services adequately for a week, or should I look at something more robust? [more inside]

Is resisting WhatsApp unreasonable?

My parents (retired age) are in Europe on vacation and requested we (adult) kids install WhatsApp so they can send us updates, pics, etc. Having quit FB years ago and maintained a locked-down online life (except here), I'm resisting installing WhatsApp. The rest of the family is like "What's the harm?" Am I being unreasonable?

Make sure photoshop composite components are high enough res

I'm making some photoshop pictures that are composites of lots of other pictures. I know the resolution of the overall image is high enough to print at the size I want, but is there a way to make sure I haven't pasted something in "too big" and that one part of the picture will look crappy? Each pasted thing is its own component. [more inside]

How do we Livestream our wedding to the tech-unsavvy?

The bride's grandparents live far away and can't travel to our wedding for health reasons. They currently have no internet service at their house, no computer or tablet, and don't really know how to use any of the above. Assuming decent WiFi at the venue, what is the cheapest and, more importantly, simplest combination of hardware and services we can use to set things up so they can be part of the fun? [more inside]

Why Black and White Pictures?

I've noticed that collections of naughty pictures (such as on the late, lamented Tumblr) curated by (self-described) women tend to feature mostly photos in black and white — sometimes black and white copies of pictures I've seen in color. These are not art photos, so what's up?

Remove error flags in google sheets

I have a spreadsheet that purposely has look up errors in it. This leaves the empty cells blank as a visual cue. The other cells with values have conditional color formatting. Is there a way to remove the little red triangle error flags from each cell with an error?

JavaScript: convert a number into individual variables

Let's say that we have a loyalty points number in our database/spread sheet/data extension/whatever. Now, let's say that my team wants me to take that six digit number and break it into six different variables so each one can be used in a different table cell. OK, easy enough, I was able to do that. However, the six digit number in the source doesn't have leading zeroes if the loyalty points is only something like 453. How can I program this so that it gives me 000453? My code is below: [more inside]

Good Desktop Wallpaper

I’m looking for some new desktop wallpaper / background art for my laptop! Where do you go for new, good looking images in nice high resolutions for decorating your monitors? (Are there single-stop shops for such content anymore?) I personally prefer art images (drawn / digital / whatever) to photographs, so bonus points for non-photograph things. Thanks!
