Unconsumption

24.2.11
Unconsumption means the accomplishment of properly recycling your old cellphone, rather than the guilt of letting it sit in a drawer.

Unconsumption means the thrill of finding a new use for something that you were about to throw away.

Unconsumption means the pleasure of using a service like Freecycle (or Craigslist, Goodwill, or Salvation Army) to find a new home for the functioning DVD player you just replaced, rather than throwing it in the garbage.

Unconsumption means enjoying the things you own to the fullest – not just at the moment of acquisition.

Unconsumption means the pleasure of using a pair of sneakers until they are truly worn out – as opposed to the nagging feeling of defeat when they simply go out of style.

Unconsumption means feeling good about the simple act of turning off the lights when you leave the room.

Unconsumption is not about the rejection of things, or the demonization of things. It’s not a bunch of rules.

Unconsumption is an idea, a set of behaviors, a way of thinking about consumption itself from a new perspective.

Unconsumption is free.

Jump during slidown in jQuery 1.4.4

Here is little bit history of the issue, the slideDown needs to calculate the height of hidden element before animating 'slideDown' . Javascript cannot calculate height of element unless it is display:'something' not 'none'.
jQuery managed to have workarounds but landed in this bug

http://jqueryfordesigners.com/animation-jump-quick-tip/

fixed it and landed in this smaller issue

http://jqueryfordesigners.com/slidedown-animation-jump-revisited/

now last day i experienced the jump again.
The solution jQuery found:
make position of elemnt absolute
make its visibility hidden
make its display normal.
now take the height.
revert back these changes.
this happens in small time that it doesnt cause prob;ems, else also no visible problem occurs.

now reason for jump:
during position:absolute the width of div depends on parent element with positioning.(unless width is defined fixed number) so if its a paragraph inside a column you are sliding down, the height calculated will be paragraph's height with width, width of body(or positioned elemnt before that).

solution:
sliding element Y has no width. Y inherits width from X. make X position relative;

Its hard to understand this unless you are good in positioning,display,visibility etc. just noting down if someone or me myself will find this useful later.
