Another posthumous burst of hypnotic energy for your excited ears - this was the last song we ever recorded together, the last noise we ever made in a room together and the stupidest song we recorded too. Its about the pre marital revellers who turn up and puke all over your home city - its a song called
STAGS AND HENS
We’ve all been there. You need to fill a database with dummy data just for test purposes and you send up spending half an hour inventing a random data generator. It’s funny but a bit useless.
DummyData.me provides a direct solution to generate random data that look real with types, incremented values, and random var too.
Quick Tip css and grids : the nth-child selector
One of the recurring problems with a grid of items in css is having margins inside the grid and not outside.
As usual with CSS there must be 100 other solutions available but this one seems pretty easy to setup:
Imagine a grid of 3x3 blocks with 1 pixel margin between the blocks.
if you do this you will have 1 pixel on the right of the grid and the same underneath. And now you need the magic nth-child selector. nth-child allows you to target an occurence of a class by its index.
nth-child(2) will select the 2nd item.
but you can use it with a more complex expression too and now it’s becoming interesting :nth-child(an+b)
b is the first item you want to select.
a is the pattern to find the next one.
n is a constant.
Now for our example we can set up nth-child like this :
-> Select the 3rd item and then 1 item every 3 items.
This is a new song we’ve just recorded a couple of weeks ago at Crash Studio, Liverpool, with Andy Fernihough. We hope you’ll like it.
Quick Tip: Turn dirty Word .doc (or any other TextEditor) document into clean Html
Word is famous for being the worst to export its documents into clean Html.
I found a simple solution here: http://word2cleanhtml.com/
Paste your text direct from Word, OpenOffice, Pages, whatever, and bam, get a clean html result.
Simple but efficient.
