Too many carousel items in jCarousel Lite v1.0.1

I’ve been working on a project and found the need for a carousel. After some searching I found a great script called jCarousel Lite. I found a bug with the implementation of jCarousel Lite v1.0.1 and how it uses selectors to get the number of li’s in a carousel. In my implementation I’m using list items within each carousel item. After looking at your code the following would result in jCarousel thinking that it has 3 items in the carousel when really there is only 1.

The current implementation of jCarousels use of $(‘li’, ul) in the constructor will return all nested li’s regardless of how deeply nested they are in the dom structure. To handle this issue I’ve modified a few lines of code in the constructor to fix this issue. Feel free to apply these changes if you see fit.

Here’s the original snippet:

Here is my modified version:

ejectAllVolumes v1.0.1: update

I got some feedback after passing this out to a few friends. Here is what I’ve changed:

  • Removed clear
  • Output the display message to /dev/null
  • Removed echo "complete"

These changes remove any of the outputs to the display. The only time you will receive a message is if you have file that is currently open in an application and the script cannot unmount the volume.

For more details check out the ejectAllVolumes project page.

DimP – A Direct Manipulation Video Player

This is a very cool concept for online video manipulation: A Direct Manipulation Video Player
Here is the project site: DimP

Here is a quote that describes the concept.

DimP, a direct manipulation video player, lets users drag items on the video screen to move forward and back instead of just via a scroll bar on the bottom of the video. This is not only more fun, but it also allows users to scroll through video to where they want to be “at least two times faster,” In a paper presented by Pierre Dragicevic, Gonzalo Ramos, Jacobo Bibliowicz, Derek Nowrouzezahrai, Ravin Balakrishnan, Karan Singh from the University of Toronto, the authors present their method for browsing video by directly dragging content by “1) automatically extracting motion data from videos; and 2) a new technique called relative flow dragging that lets users control video playback by moving objects of interest along their visual trajectory.”

Check the video’s after the jump.
