    I noticed this update this morning. Finding it difficult to differentiate between unread and read emails. It used to be a lot clearer.

    What a fantastic book. One of them rare books I go back to and read again often.

    Yeah, they're a front-end style guide, so they get called pattern libraries to differentiate them a bit from the more print-based brand guidelines.

    Pattern library, component library, pattern lab, style-guide; there's loads of different names for them. It would be nice if there was a unified name for them but, hey-ho.

    This is what I thought. How is it any quicker/easier to unlock your iPad, open theAlfred remote, tell it to open Photoshop then go back to your Mac to use it. Surely it's much easier to just open Photoshop on your Mac and stay there.

    The only benefit I can think of is controlling your music or films. But there's plenty of other apps that already do this well.

    I'll reserve any judgement till I get to actually use it; it could end out being fantastic. I just don't see how right now.

    It looks nice, I just don't think I'm ready for another way of messaging my friends. I already have, Slack, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Messages, Hangouts, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Skype, Email, and regular SMS and Voice calls. It's all just too much.

    Reminds me a little of this comic

    Wait, 1 day? There's no way that's correct.

    Came here to say the same thing. There were a couple of handy mixins there, but 90% can be handled much better with Autoprefixer.

  • Posted to How to hire a bike in London, Sep 02, 2014

    Just after these things started I hired one to ride home from the pub. Not reading the prices properly I thought it was £2 for 24 hours. Which—I'm sure you'll agree—is quite an easy mistake to make. I decided just to ride home and drop the bike off in the morning, it was still within 24 hours so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Turns out I got charged £52 for having it over 6 hours. Was only a tenner in a taxi :(
