Flash: Good Bye and Good Riddance
Unlike yesterday's potentially overblown news about the demise of MS Paint—which was met with mixed feelings—I am quite happy to see the news of Adobe finally putting an end-date on support for Flash. It was a technology that was certainly helpful at solving the problem of online video and interactive games back in the early days, but its misuses (Flash-based site navigation, I'm looking at you!) performance inefficiencies, and security holes mean it's long past time to let it go.

I can certainly sympathize with anyone that still has Flash-based solutions they'll need to replace, though. Perhaps there'll be a nice market for developers to work on doing these conversions?

This kind of stuff is always fun for me to read about. One thing to note however, is that the BMW logo explanation is a bit contentious. I've seen it commonly stated (such as in your article) that it was based on a propeller, but that may be incorrect:

That's also true Brian. We just analyst many sites for logo design meaning but every where most of the sites denotes the same. Even though I make a note for your valuable comments...
Thanks...

It's not an easy journey. The users need to see value on the functionalities offered and have a good experience. Some good luck might speed up this process.

Apple is no longer just for the tech-savvy millennial and professional crowd. Check out today's product release, where developers as young as 7 and as old as 84 are releasing new apps to the App Store. https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2017/

This is an amazingly simply way to make an Electron desktop application from a webpage. I love it :D

And I wonder if it works with browser notifications? Those notifs can be pretty handy for something like Hipchat.

Electron has a notifications API so it could probably work if one decided to add that. I can't tell if Nativifier does that or not and I haven't tried yet.

Was happy to have a tool like www.newrelic.com. Had an issue where only certain users were experiencing a slow load time. Turned to be code executing too many unnecessary queries that was exposed by looking at long transactions on new relic. Made it a lot easier to find something that otherwise might have taken awhile to narrow down.

I'm glad to see Liquidweb is a new topic here. They have been my web host of choice since about 2008 or 9 and I have twenty some posts here on why I like LW https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28434976/recommend-a-hosting-provider.html#a40069498

They completely helped me from migration from a previous host and through several critical server upgrades VPS -> dedicated windows server 2003->2008->2012.  Whenever I have an issue, the person that takes the ticket is friendly and very knowledgeable. Other hosting services I have used, a help call or ticket starts at a low level and has to get escalated. At LW, 99% of the time, the person that you initially contact is the person that fixes the issue be it by submitted ticket or a panicky phone call.

One of the add on services I use for my dedicated server is continuous back up on my SQL Server drive. I have client billing systems on this server and one time did encounter a crash. Because of the continuous back up, no data was lost and everything was restored in quick manner.

For the past few months I've been a Beta tester for a new service called DNS Spy.  It's a service that Monitors, validates and verifies your DNS configurations.  

It might be worth a look if you are looking for something that monitors your External DNS.  Link below:

@Lucas - Gotta wonder if Google will start to run afoul of some of the anti-trust / monopoly issues that hit Microsoft in the late 90's/early 00's. Definitely seeing some similarities here... They could potentially have a strong enough browser monopoly to stop other ad provider systems. But then again, I don't think Chrome has a strong enough position to really be considered a monopoly the way that Windows was.

I remember this like it was yesterday, being in a new position.  It always helped to try something and improve on that until it became well streamlined.

Coming into a new position expecting the work to be the same as you were taught in school or experienced it in your last position is problematic, said Gene Richardson, COO of Experts Exchange. "Each company is different, and each company will implement or code their own technology solutions," Richardson said. "Essentially, you need to drop all old habits and approach the job with an open mind while trying to both embrace and understand why they do what they do. Once you are there for at least 90 days, you can then start making suggestions on how things could be improved. Be sure you know what you are talking about and can back your stance up with facts."

Used html5 progress bar for the first time the other day. Really easy to use and makes a pretty cool looking progress bar. Don't know why I didn't take advantage of them earlier.
