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.

Building out

Gonna be posting a lot of content this year. I have tons of stuff that I want to share.

Disable JavaScript in Chrome

To disable JavaScript in Chrome, open inspector and type Cmd+Shift+P. Then type “java” at the prompt and select “Disable JavaScript”. To re-enable, close inspector.

UpdraftPlus

Been using UpdraftPlus for several years now. Solid, reliable plugin for making database backups.

Frontend metrics tool

Super useful tool for gathering frontend metrics: mydevice.io.

10 years on the same computer

This is the 10th year working on my first iMac. It’s still an incredible machine, but gonna need to upgrade maybe this year.

Nice minimal design

Another fine example of clean, focused minimalist design at michaelsoriano.com. Great content too.

Disable Chrome cache

To get Chrome to load latest scripts, styles, and images, open Dev Tools and check the box to Disable Cache (under Network tab). Works w/ Firefox too.

Don’t be lazy

Don’t be lazy. Learn how to search. Figure it out for yourself.

Zelda: BotW

Recently completed Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Now playing through again on Master Mode, having a blast.

Code comments

If you need comments to explain your code, you are doing it wrong.

Life outside of Facebook

There is so much life and fresh air outside of Facebook. Really have been enjoying spending more time in other spaces.

Opening comments

Closed threads are no fun. So I’m opening up comments again on select posts. My tutorial on trapping bad bots for example.

Had a good laugh today when I saw this in a support email: “In observance of Arbor Day our team will be out of the office on Friday, April 30th.” Lol Arbor Day.
Just spent a few minutes scrolling thru FB, almost every ad was pushing the va×.
