Problem: Adobe Reader Showing Text Only When You Click On It

Problem: Adobe Reader Showing Text Only When You Click On It

So I ran in to a weird problem that I thought I would share the reason for it and the solution. I had some PDFs that had form fillable fields. They were filled out by people and sent in. The problem was that the all the fields were blank unless you clicked on them, then the data was shown. After some googling I found out that if a person fills out the form on a Mac using Preview instead of the actual adobe reader, it saves it in a buggy way. The way to solve the problem is to open the file in adobe acrobat, export the data, then import it back in.

Is It OK to Complain to God?

Is It OK to Complain to God?

Many people fell like that they do not have the right to complain to God. That complaining to God is wrong and shows a lack of faith. I think it is ok to complain, even to God. I was driving in to work today and I heard a clip of a Pastor saying how we should be happy, and thank God for our blessings even during the bad times. He made the point by talking about how David had a hard time a lot in his life. His King that he had only ever been loyal to, wanted to kill him. He had to live out in the wilderness for years, and run from the King just to stay alive. The pastor quoted a passage from psalms that praised God and thanked him for all Blessings. I do not remember what the exact passage was, but I do not think it was important, because there are a lot of psalms that have a similar pattern. The pastor went on to say we should act the same as David does in this passage and thank God even in bad times.

Time Does Not Equal Money

Time Does Not Equal Money

You know those posts that have a title that is designed to be misleading, but it is technically true. Yeah, this is going to be one of those posts. I do believe that time and money are directly correlated, but I do not believe that this equation time(sec) = money($) is correct. I think the equation really looks like this x*time(s) = money($). Where x is a variable that changes in each situation. At different points in my life I have had more time than money, and others I have had more money than time. So x can grow larger and smaller depending on the situation.

ALL Font Tester Updated

ALL Font Tester Updated

I made the original All Font Tester to be able to see what a given phrase would look like with every font installed on a computer. Javascript has not ability to get the list of fonts on a computer. So I originally wrote the original program using Java to get the font list, and then pass the list to javascript to do the rest of the work. Unfortunately java has been hit with a lot of exploits recently. So it seems like browsers and Operating Systems have been really limiting the execution of Java. So I have had to change my script to run off of Flash. I used FlashDevelop, to write a very simple script to get the fonts, and then pass them to javascript. Luckily most of the code stayed the same, and it works much better now. Most browsers will now run the script by default instead of giving the Java warning. To try it out go here
