firewatchgame.com Parallax at the top is nicely done.
Well, that was the worst night of sleep I’ve had in a long time. Getting up was painful. So, um, good morning?
I think I’m going to get loc.gov/pictures/resou… printed and put in my office. Love it.

If I book a trip to London between now and December, I get bonus miles. Tempted to book said trip to London.
I’m not sure why Amazon asks me what device to send a Kindle book. I have to download it manually on every device I have anyways.
Custom select boxes link I was looking for: jsbin.com/juvixufu/10/ed… (thx @SaraSoueidan for pointing me in the right direction!)
For the life of me, I can’t find a link to cross-browser custom select drop downs that I saw recently. Anybody got such a thing?
Once in an interview, I started talking about visual design patterns and realized the interviewer meant Gang of Four design patterns.
You can tell if someone is a designer or developer based on what they think “design patterns” are.

Surprised NHL15 doesn’t have a league mode.
Watched A Million Ways to Die in the West. Amusing. Enjoyed the Back to the Future and Django Unchained cameos.
Edge of Tomorrow was a good movie. I liked the Groundhog Day spin.
Sadly too few companies realise the importance of design in Product Management and focus on tech delivery and metrics reporting instead.

I believe that class names should describe design function—.nav or .modal—not its content.
Naming CSS Stuff is Really Hard seesparkbox.com/foundry/naming… (I talk about this in my workshop!)
Did you know Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are feuding? Yeah, I didn’t need to know that.
Every now and then I click on a trending topic and then I hate myself a little more.

Having a Pebble, I think I’d like an Apple Watch but my biggest concern is the size. The Watch looks too big.
Switched from Air to Pro for work laptop; remembered my biggest peeve: the edge on my wrists. Ow. Maybe the band of Apple Watch would help.
We’re looking for front-end developers in Ottawa. shopify.com/careers/front-… Come work with me. :)
I’ve seen conf lineups of all women and asked, “am I allowed to go?” Imagine what it’s like for all male lineups.
The solution to gender equality in tech should not be for women to act more like men.
I was willing to buy previous iPhones sight unseen. Unlikely to be the case with iPhone 6 or Watch.

They replaced Coke with Pepsi at work. I quit.
Back in Ottawa for two days now and my allergies are in full force. Ugh.

Huh. Didn’t realize that I managed to register both cssarchitecture.com and css-architecture.com. I should put those domains to use.
Most of my time on not-oft-used services is spent on resetting forgotten passwords.
