It has been a long time since I have received a few things from my chest and because I am always full of peeves and annoyances I thought it was time to unleash:
- Do not allow yourself to be bitter; instead, advocate for yourself. No one is looking forward to your happiness next to you. Make it true and chase what makes you most happy.
- Treat each code review, as well as the reviewer and the submitter, as a learning and team building experience. Your code does not represent you personally, but your review comments certainly do. Be a cheerleader, do not be a cancer.
- Does desktop Safari still exist?
- Re-designing a blog is difficult. I have probably thrown out a dozen designs since the current design. The love for a design is lost long before users see it.
- I am shocked by what appears to be the lack of React performance aids . I have not used React as often as I would have liked, but I often hear that React leads to slow sites.
- The Xbox One X is great. Lightning fast processing, glorious 4k assets, compatibility with earlier versions and a few great start games. Up to 100GB of game downloads? My word …
- … however, the browser wars are warming up. Mozilla is more direct in marketing and Brave has gone in a completely new direction. Your move, Chrome?

Those are my thoughts at the moment. Let me know what I'm wrong with! Confess your own dev-sins!
Regular expressions for the rest of us
Sooner or later you will encounter a regular expression. With their cryptic syntax, confusing documentation and huge learning curve, most developers take pleasure in copying and pasting StackOverflow in the hope that they work. But what if you could decode regular expressions and use their power? In …
How I stopped WordPress Comment Spam
I almost love being part of a tech blogger: learning, preaching, complaining, researching. The only part about blogging that I absolutely do not like: dealing with SPAM comments. Over the past two years, my blog has registered 8,000+ SPAM responses per day. PER DAY. A bloated feeling …
Speech recognition software is becoming increasingly important; it started (for me) with Siri on iOS, then on Amazon's Echo, then on my new Apple TV, and so on. Speech recognition is so useful for not only our technical superstars, but also for people who want to "work hands"
The jQuery home page has a fairly soft tooltip-like effect as shown below:
This way you can achieve the same effect with Dojo.
The above HTML is taken directly from the jQuery home page – no changes.
The above CSS is somewhat adapted to the CSS rules already …
