If you have ever bought a domain name or setup/built a website, there is a good chance that you have gotten your hands into DNS settings. Most of the time DNS is pretty straight forward but there are times that certain situations can make things a little tricky.

Sometimes I get that client that is just too curious for his or her own good. This is great sometimes but when it comes to playing with the function.php page it can sometimes be a headache. So, with a single line of code you can easily remove this functionality.
Time to rock some CSS3 animation! With IE 10 comes nearly full support of CSS3 animation, which means we can realistically start using it in our work. In this tutorial I am going to focus specifically on animating sprite sheets with CSS3. Let’s do this!
Big news on the browser front, Opera just released their new browser. This new browser is called “Opera Next” and runs on webkit with a slew of new features. This new version of Opera looks great, moved to webkit, moved search into the address bar and includes these more unique features:
I treat my desktop like any other directory on my computer and it is always a mess with icons and screen shots. This doesn’t really both me but when I am doing a demo or presentation I inevitably get a comment like, “man, ever clean that desktop?” To which I want to say, “no, do you ever clean your downloads folder?” So, obviously not everyone thinks of the desktop the same way I do. I guess we ould debate whether having a desktop is even useful, but why and who really has time for something like that.
So, with this little trick I can make my “desktop” look pretty for people viewing my computer, while still treating it as a temporary directory that I can access and use. Let’s do it!
Nate Hanson’s (almost) one page portfolio website is super clean with minimal use of color. His use of content is also minimal and quickly tells us where he lives, what he has done, what he can do and how to contact him. The design and content also convey that Nate is an approachable guy.
Recently I was asked in a forum about creating a transparent background image. One easy way to do this is to make the image a transparent .png in Photoshop. The downside to this is file size and the extra time to change the transparency when you decide it isn’t quite right. You could just apply an opacity to the whole div, but this will result in your content becoming transparent as well. So what is the solution?
Making or finding the perfect background texture or pattern can be tough. Making one takes time that you may not have and finding one can take just as long. I recently discovered an amazing site that will be the first place I look from now on.
Scenario: You just noticed a typo in the URL of that awesome blog post that you published yesterday. And, you already sent out your tweets, shares, pins, etc. about it. So now what do you do? Do you change the URL and resend this information? Do you keep the misspelling and possibly miss out on your share of Google juice?
Rapid prototyping is awesome! Recently I created a website wireframe for my client using Bootstrap from Twitter. This wireframe is static HTML with no color, but allows me to show my client how the content would be structured and how users will interact with the website. Plus, I got to showoff how the site would look on mobile with the same wireframe. Needless to say my presentation went over really well and I was able to address many of their questions with this wireframe.
