JavaScript headache and code forensics

Mixing modernizr with cufón produces sadness for IE8 on Windows XP.  More specifically cufón 1.09i and modernizr 2.5.3 create a combination that produces weird double lettering.

I reported the issue to the cufón dev, https://github.com/sorccu/cufon/issues/239

Found the relevant issue on the modernizr project, https://github.com/Modernizr/Modernizr/issues/534

And followed it to the root issue on the html5shiv, https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv/issues/54

From there I went to https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv/commit/9aa5bcdca367fd86ec5d5b73ca4d95e032a0f502#diff-1 and figured out what exactly I would need to fix the problem.

Thinking I could ditch modernizr and just use the most up to date html5shiv at http://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/

CrossFit Open completed

My first CrossFit competition, the CrossFit Games Open,  is over; it was worth the $20 registration fee.  I had a good time.  And it got me to push myself harder than I normally would.

How did I finish?  Right about where I expected to.  Out of the mid-Alantic region competitors that finished all the workouts about 76% did better than me.  Check out my CrossFit Open profile to see.

I’ll do it again next year for sure.  Maybe then I can bust into that 50th to 75th percentile range.
