If it happens once it’s a novelty. Twice, it’s a coincidence. Three, times it’s a habit. So if it happens four times would that make it an addiction? 🤔 From Parallax to scrolling colour changes to zooming in on image I had another idea to play around with sticky positioning and slides. As has been the case with all my experiments so far, it was surprisingly easier than expected with modern CSS.Read more »
In a word, ”yes”.Read more »
Using parallax in web design isn’t new; you can easily find plugins, third-party libraries and no shortage of examples on the interwebz. I was searching for a pure CSS solution only to recall it had already been done with
background-attachment and that I used this technique on a client project a few years ago! Silly forgetful me…
Let’s play a game: what is wrong with this picture?
If you’re like me and only skimmed it, you would probably have not noticed anything off. In fact, what I did notice was cPanel warning me that the (redacted) domain in question was reaching the limit of the allowed space. OK cool, I added it to my Todo app and went on with my life.Read more »
While doing routine troubleshooting I noticed an error appearing multiple times in the server log (a truncated version is replicated below).
WordPress database error Unknown column 'actioned_text' in 'field list' for query SELECT ... FROM wc_admin_note_actions WHERE ...
Messages in the server log are not necessarily problematic but when the same one is logged multiple times that’s probably a sign to start investigating.Read more »
A few days ago a long-term client received a suspicious email which threatened to remove their inactive email accounts. Naturally the first thing they did was notify us. We immediately smelled a rat and asked them to forward the email to us for further investigation.
While doing some testing on a client’s website backup — and I hope you are making backups of your website — we encountered an issue where restoring the database to our development server kept failing. This obviously wasn’t a good sign; if we can’t restore a client’s website then their backups are effectively worthless.
I consider myself a craftsman in that I dedicate myself to my work. I’m probably a few steps short of a perfectionist (though that terms has been applied to me in the past) and while I may not know best any newfangled idea or technique must convince me of its value before I’ll give it a second look. I pride myself in creating the best work I am capable of.
But reality does not always give me the luxury of doing so. While a craftsman would prefer having ample time and resources to work on their projects, the real world cannot always accommodate this. In most cases it’s “now or preferably yesterday!”
