    Hi all! I'm the creator of the above site. Thanks for the share!

    I have some ideas for some posts to write coming out of this project. Is there anything in particular you guys would like to know?

    Hello! I'm the creator of the above site. 502's should be fixed now. Had a myriad of issues from DNS propagation to abuse of the site.

    Glad you like it!

    I think you're fine using either regarding zooming, but both have their uses.

    I tend to use pixels on stuff like box-shadow and border-radius.

    I use ems on everything else, as it makes it trivial to scale components.

    The argument is basically absolute units vs relative units. Each have their uses—I don't see why you need to choose one over the other though.

    Banking sites are all a joke in the UK.

    It's a shame — if one of the banks had a decent online/app experience, people would flock there.

  • Posted to A better sticky nav show/hide pattern, Jun 21, 2014

    There's a neat pattern making it's way around the web to do with stick navs. When scrolling down, the nav disappears until you scroll up again (example here and here.

    I felt like the pattern could be improved upon by mapping the movement more closely with the scrolling.

    Would love to know what you think!

    An SSD will certainly speed things up, but it sounds like you need more RAM if Photoshop is bugging out. Selecting layers etc. shouldn't use disk IO but will use RAM.

    How much RAM you got now?

  • Posted to CSS Trick to make elements look selected., May 04, 2014

    You can use a combination of radio buttons and labels to achieve this affect.

    See my pen here: http://codepen.io/iest/pen/ujnlJ

    There's a neat trick to use the + selector (adjacent selector) along with the input's checked attribute.

    Plus the radio button still gets checked, so it's still a valid form.

    And no, you don't need javascript to achieve this :)
