  • Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

    Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

    During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

    F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

    It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

  • Compared to other programming languages, Python and Ruby are so similar that hearing arguments between them is like trying to figure out which identical twin is more handsome.

    But there are differences, and not only in the languages! The Seattle Python community represented there was almost painfully polite. People sat silently for 3-5 minutes between talks while the speaker plugged in to the projector. I rudely whispered to my neighbor, eager to discuss the ideas presented.

    During the talks, people mostly sat and listened to the speaker. Many Ruby conferences in the USA are half full of hackers with laptops open, coding away at a project and jeering the speaker over IRC. Not here.

    I later learned that this may be an attribute unique to Seattle Python developers. After all, we’re the city that gave the world the Uptight Seattleite and where drivers with the right-of-way stop to let cyclists turn left in front of them.

  • The focus of this template is on a design agency that offers a range of web-based services. The primary aim of the page we’re designing, therefore, is to promote what the business does and what services they provide.

    This is the first part of a tutorial on building a clean business website. This first part will focus on creating the design in Photoshop, and in the second part, will focus on converting the PSD outcome to a working XHTML template.
