Colors and fonts

Nice site for browsing colors and fonts.

WordPress Admin framework

This new Admin Page Framework looks very good. Bookmarked for future use.

Finding new plugins

Two great places to find awesome plugins: pluginsearch.com and WP’s browse new.

CSS two things

2 things I hate to see in stylesheets: _ and #

VLC media player

Love VLC media player but it fails miserably when it comes to randomizing large collections of mp3 and other files.

Should have kept the filigree

Dashlane redesigned, stating proudly they “removed all filigree”. Should have kept it; the app now looks generic and boring. Killed your identity.

PDF stamping

Working on integration for setaPDF + EDD on the new books subdomain. Good times.

Show hidden files on Mac

Toggle visibility of hidden files on Mac: Cmd + Shift + .

Cache checker

Great tool for checking browser caching for web pages and all included files.

Books subdomain

Now working on the books subdomain for Perishable Press.

14 Kilobytes

The new minimalist design styled by 14KB of CSS (uncompressed and un-minified). That covers 850+ posts and pages spanning 15 years of diverse content.

Placeholder support

Amazing (and sad) to think that, in the year 2020, Internet Explorer still doesn’t support the placeholder attribute, which is supported by all other major browsers.

Winter redesign

Finishing up with the latest redesign for Perishable Press! Should be live this week or early next.

Feedburner

It’s almost like Feedburner was purchased and left to die on purpose. RSS feeds are a direct competitor to Big Search.

Downloads fixed

Finally fixed the inconsistent/broken downloads for .zip files. Just feels good.

shiflett.org

Love the latest design for Chris Shiflett’s shiflett.org. Very inspiring in its simplicity and clean visual aesthetic.

Thoughts
Upgraded iMac to Ventura. Disabled "unsend mail" feature and found some (now) hidden wallpaper settings. Overall smooth upgrade.
( $this ) is bloat. ($this) is better.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom coming May 12, 2023. Absolutely pumped.
Favorite thing for breakfast is a tall glass of cold water. Hits the spot every time.
Fall is my favorite season :)
Still a few days left before “Unlimited” pro licenses are no longer available.
Getting back into it after a nice mini vacation. Time to ramp up and get busy.
