The Mojave Experiment… It Doesn’t Really Suck That Much

  • Windows Vista is compatible with 200 Security programs… I don’t need a single one… I have a mac
  • 37% of vista users say they are “somewhat likely” to recommend it to others
  • 46% of current Windows users said they are somewhat satisfied with Vista

Being Kind to Widows and Orphans

No, this is not one of those charity posts.
It’s all about my favourite plugin. Imagine a plugin that could improve
the typography of your page with no complicated setup. Controlling type
online can at times be difficult. However, things have just gotten a
whole lot easier with the release of the Typogrify plugin.
