1. Hosting Recommendation?

    I need to transfer my sites to a new web host. Having been out of the web hosting shopping arena for some time now, I could use a little advice. My main traffic site is this one (~30-40k pageviews/month) which is a WordPress powered site. I also have several other PHP apps installed on this…

  2. Web developers that prevent1 pasting into password fields can die in a fire.


    1. For normal people that don’t hack the DOM using the inspector. 
  3. JSONView for Firefox →

    The document is formatted, highlighted, and arrays and objects can be collapsed. Even if the JSON document contains errors, JSONView will still show the raw text.

    Yes, I still use Firefox as my development browser. I’m comfortable with my dinosaur status.

  4. What is your recommended mouse these days? My rechargeable Logitech Performance MX is driving me nuts by doubling ~75% of my clicks.

  5. My Yesterbox Gmail Setup →

    I really like this approach to email. Thankfully I don’t have to deal with the volume of email I used to, but if it ever approaches that level again I’m going to give this a shot. It is easy to replicate in Mail.app with a smart folder and a second window.

    Subject: Clinical Trial Progress / CT Scan Results

    Hi Everyone, I got some good news yesterday when I went in for treatment. The results from my CT scan earlier this week show a significant reduction in size of my abdominal lymph nodes and with the nodules in/around my liver. There is some minor growth in the nodules in my lungs, but these are…

  7. Designing Twitter Video →

    I love in-depth pieces like this. A lot of TLC went into this feature and it feels nice to use (although when I launched the official Twitter client to check it out I actually had trouble finding it – click into the photo/camera, then you can switch to video).

  8. It’s Top Down Weather

    This was from a drive at the end of January; I thoroughly enjoyed getting to put the top down in 2015 long before I expected to. It’s warm and beautiful in Denver this week as well – I am not complaining.

  9. Filed under “I guess you can get used to anything”, drinking the oral contrast for my CT scan doesn’t seem so bad today.

  10. Ultra-minimal iPhone 6 Case →

    I’ve never used a case for my iPhone(s) previously, but I picked up one of these a few weeks ago and I like it. I particularly like the way the plastic stops at the metal edge leaving the rounded glass edge fully exposed (so you get a nice smooth finger-on-rounded-glass feeling when using the back gesture). Granted this reduces protection, but I mainly wanted something to make the phone less slippery.

    I went with white for my space gray phone, it is pretty translucent and barely lightens the gray color. (thanks Dave)

    Subject: Continuing with Clinical Trial

    Hi Everyone, I’m pleased to report that the liver markers in my blood work have improved as hoped after the insertion of the stent and I’ve been able to get back on the clinical trial. I had an infusion on the 15th and another yesterday (the 22nd). Based on the last two weeks it looks…
