Simple little tool that does exactly what the name says: tells you if a site you can’t reach is down or if it’s just you (i.e., a connection issue between you and the site).
Oh dear lord. This guy has a video where we recreates a photorealistic iPhone with iOS 7 (creating every icon too!), all in Microsoft Word. Absolutely blew my mind. My first thought was “he needs to write a book about designing in Word.” Well, he did. And it’s FREE!
So the easy way to install Subversion is to first install Homebrew and then install Git, then use Git to checkout Subversion? Man, I don’t know what’s stranger, those instructions or the fact that it really did end up being simple.
I’m going to buy used boxes from these guys the next time I move. And then sell the boxes back to them when I’m done.
Hah! I’m ostensibly bookmarking this for my six year old son but my dirty little secret is that I’ll probably use this way more than he will!
Momma’s don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys. Seriously, teach them to be programmers instead. Scratch is a cool learning site for kids where they can learn about all sorts of things, like nested loops! And particle simulators! And probably millions of other things!
I should note that this article is providing instructions on how the content creator can force a PDF to open in a particular view. Which, if you’re creating two-page spreads, you might need to do.
"One of the most common recommendations Cella puts forward in a Creative Operations Assessment is to implement project tiering. Tiering can be implemented in varying levels of complexity and, for most organizations, the simplest implementation is often all that is necessary."
A presenter at HOWLive mentioned this page as a good resource to use when writing job descriptions. In addition to tiering design work, I’ll be reviewing our existing job descriptions against these in the coming weeks.
This is what a branding/identity guide looks like, with clear examples and a strong personality.
Okay, this is a little crazy: a CSS3 (no JS) 3D Macbook Air that rotates 360 degrees and opens and closes. The shadow ends up mismatched sometimes but the thing even has a screen glare that moves as the laptop is rotated. Trying to think if we can use this for some of our hero imagery on Spiceworks.
Loving interior design lately. Particularly office design.
Worth reading if you think you might ever have to give a presentation (or if you work with people who have to give presentations). From the article: "Learn from the best. Take these 7 lessons from the world’s most captivating presenters, and apply them to your next presentation. You’ll also find them in the SlideShare below, sliced up into 10 lessons."
I don’t normally bookmark recipes but these just looked delicious. Probably because I’m starving right now.
I’m interested in a company that has an "office anthropologist" and a stated mission to help workers thrive, rather than simply survive, in the workplace.
I need a good outline when trying something new. I don’t have the expertise to say if this is a good outline, but it looks good to me.
I like everything but the price tags!
I flagged a post a while back on integrating Stripe with WordPress. Looks like Stripe has been hard at work making it easier to implement period. Definitely worth looking into more.
Nice collection of typographic posters. Looks like they’ll be selling prints soon.
