Clickr

Gas stove woes

Imagine someone clicking two fingernails together and amplify that dozens of times with an irregular rhythm.

The pilot light keeps clicking on my stovetop. I've googled to no avail. Spark modules. Ignition problems. I've tried cleaning what I can, I just need to break down and call a professional.

In other news, CSS tools just ain't there yet for visual point and clickers like me.

Math is hard. I'm going to have a beer.

My woe is why you can't have something like tag-completion (like in Dreamweaver MX or the excellent TopStyle Pro) for Javascript.

My shrink has advised me to stay away from stoves. Especially gas stoves.

Don't ask.

Some stoves (perhaps yours) have a safety feature that will attempt to re-light the pilot if it notices that it has gone out. The clicking is clearly the sound of the spark module kicking in. Perhaps your gas feed is going out intermittently, and your stove is attempting to re-ignite the pilot.

And yes, GUI CSS tools still suck, although some suck less than others. I'd kill for a true CSS "WYSIWYG" editor, complete with understanding of the Box model. Until then, I stick with BBEdit, and a copy of Eric's Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide.

As you well know, I am pretty good with the whole CSS thingie... hit me if you'd like help/advice.
