    HTTP Headers as a Bad Guy

    I've been playing Legend of Zelda (a lot) lately on the Nintendo Switch. (So fun!) One of the things I am great at in that game (dare I say it) is avoiding the bad guys. Fighting them gives me a crazy amount of anxiety. As I was playing, I couldn't help but think about how I have a tendency to do this in my development also. Meet today's bad guy: HTTP Headers.

    TLDR; The purpose of a doctype is to tell the browser what version of html you are writing on your page.

    How do you optimize your webpages for print?

    My formal education is in the printing industry, and I worked in that industry for 9 years. I know printing well. Once, while working at a commercial printing company, I got involved with redesigning their website. One of the requirements of the site was that it be able to be 'printed'. Admittedly, I laughed upon first hearing this. But in reality, it kind of made sense. Sure, probably no one was going to print it. But when you go to print a site and the page is filled with a bunch of garbage, you take note. It's one of those little details that often gets overlooked.

    The CSS Pseudos

    Pseudonyms, pseudoscience, pseudo-activity, pseudo-[anything]. All the prefix 'pseudo' really means is that the word that follows it is not what it seems. (Fake, if you will.) Smoke and mirrors, something that kind of appears to be like one thing, but doesn't quite make the cut.

    This Week I Learned: @supports

    Just like @media allows you to apply certain styles based on how the page is displayed (width/height/etc), @supports allows you allow styles based on feature detection.

    Using .gitignore Too Late

    So, you've created a git repository and find out along the way there's all kinds of unnecessary garbage that has turned up. Oops. You ignore it for a while, hoping it will go away. Of course it doesn't.
