Geek Joke of the Day

A man flying in a hot air balloon suddenly realizes he’s lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts to get directions, “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?” The man below says: “Yes. You’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above…

Sidr is a very well made jQuery plugin that makes it easy to create a menu similar to the way Facebook “swipe-from-the-left” navigation screen on their iPhone app. There are a lot of options that would make it useful for full sized and mobile sites. Learn it. Use it. Love it.

For the Web Designer Who Hates Everyone

April 2, 2013

Here’s a JavaScript library that’s certain to destroy any site’s popularity. Pestilence is a “collection of JavaScript utilities to ruin someone’s day, regardless of ability…or disability.” When added to a webpage, it will: Play a high-pitched noise at random intervals. Replace the user’s cursor with a duplicate that is offset approximately fifty pixels down and…

Eat Your Own Children’s Shoes

Eat Your Own Children's Shoes

You know what bugs us around 13GNE HQ? The phrase: “The cobbler’s children have no shoes.” You know the idea, the mechanic with the worst running car, or a painter with a shoddily painted house, or an accountant who can’t file his taxes on time. The obvious reason is that they’re all too busy serving…

Octobeard – Finale

November 15, 2012

Octobeard is OVER! The final results are in, but it looks like someone has been holding out on us and if this was a contest (and it wasn’t), we’d have to get the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency involved. Jason  Jason definitely had the most beard-like beard around: no weird bare patches that are common for part time beard wearers…

Octobeard – Week 3

October 23, 2012

As we get closer to November (Movember?), we totally forgot that we had been excluding an important member of the 13GNE team from our not-a-contest of beard growing. Granted, as a Canine-American, he’s had plenty of beard growing experience, but it was no reason to overlook Cisco’s participation in our office shenanigans. Sorry buddy. Jason…

Octobeard – Week 2

October 16, 2012

Another beard growing week has passed and we thought we’d give you an update on 13GNE’s Octobeard progress. One good thing to note is that we haven’t seemed to scare away any clients (yet). Jason Wooly mammoth + amazing designer = Jason Katzwinkel. As predicted, his beard is covering everything on his face except his forehead, eyes,…

Octobeard – Week 1

October 9, 2012

What can 13 Guys do? Grow beards, that’s what! At the end of last month, we decided to focus more on client work and less on personal hygiene and Octobeard was born. We’re one week in and we thought we’d show you the results so far. Jason Jason pretty much looked this way about 15 minutes after…
