iPhone Reboot

I sent my iPhone 5 in the be fixed and they gave me a 16GB reformatted loaner phone. Since my phone has 32GB of storage, I couldn’t restore the loaner with a full iCloud backup. Here are the apps that got me through the week. To me, it’s a statement on how little I need…

Github Contributions: More than meets the eye

I have a few unemployed friends who have been searching for jobs lately and many companies are requesting links to their Github accounts, but I always found the Github “Contributions” chart to be misleading. Here’s a public screenshot of mine, for example: It looks like I have a few days of heavy work but then forget about Github for long…

Today I met up with the Node.js Denver/Boulder group downtown for a Nodeschool.io hack day.  Richard Lucas, who I had met awhile back at a Denver Code Club meetup, organized the event at Code Talent for 32 of us to meet and work our way through the various Nodeschool.io modules, with mentors wandering around to help out if…

This weekend, 16 “Favoriteers” descended on WordCamp Orange County for 2 days of WordPress speeches, workshops, networking, and general camaraderie. In fact, two Favoriteers, Jeff and Brandon, teamed up with a few other WordPress locals to put on the event. As a result, I can safely say that this WordCamp was by far my favorite;…

cdnjs →

From the folks at CloudFlare comes cdnjs, which is a CDN meant to host all kinds of JavaScript libraries. I want to look into tools like Browserify and Require.js in combination with Gulp.js, but in the meantime, I really like this service.

Chrome webfont bug fix

I ran across the Chrome 33 webfont bug twice in one day, but thankfully I’m not the only one having issues. Apparently it’s a known bug in the past few versions of Chrome where third-party webfonts won’t load on a page without a re-draw. Commenter AceYnyswen re-worked another comment and posted a work-around (read: hack).…
