I have been doing work with Boostrap 3 as of late. When building responsive layouts, I find it very handy to immediately see which predefined size group you are currently viewing. Here’s a little snippet that shows the current Bootstrap size modifier.
This is especially helpful when viewing a page from a mobile device or table. You can easily deduce which size group maps to a particular device in each orientation.
IT projects are difficult, long and arduous. Requirements change, budgets are tight, and deadlines loom like a dark cloud. Sometimes it feels like you are moving mountains to ship the project. It can be quite a grind. For people like us that care about the quality and craft of our work, this can become quite the pressure cooker.
We are very much invested in the success of the project and the success of the business as a whole. To the point where we sacrifice personal/family time and relationships.
Generally the technology nuts and bolts do not present the biggest obstacle. Accumulating context is the real money pit. A lot of time is spent understanding the customer’s business process and how technology can help to streamline that process.
The problem here is that when the project is over … poof you are gone. Onto the next, without anything but some addition XP (epic set?!?) to show for it.
When the next project starts you will need to build this business context all over again. Again, venturing into unknown territory to discover the next dragon to be eviscerated. What a grind. Just when you get things figured out, you move on.
There are a couple of things that I have found which help:
I have always had a sneaking suspicion that my keyboard repeat rate and repeat delay settings were a little too slow for my taste. Windows only lets to you increase the values in a fixed range but with a registry change, you can adjust as you please.
Play around with AutoRepeatDelay and AutoRepeatRate, these are the settings that work for me.
Don’t set the AutoRepeatDelay too fast, it will make it so that when you type letters they are repeated immediately. Makes it really hard to type your password :)
