Responsive Images, Retina Displays and srcset sizes v's multipliers

If you have a website the chances are you probably have some images or photos to break up your text or help to convey a message or story etc. Well if your website has been created fairly recently, chances are that your site responds to different viewports.

Getting your PS3 Controller to work on Windows

I recently ended up running Windows on my Mac via bootcamp to run various titles that I had purchased from steam that did not run natively on my Mac. I had previously managed to run similar titles on my Mac and discovered I was able to use my PS3 controller(s) via bluetooth fairly easily, however getting the PS3 Controller to not just show up but available for use seemed to be a lot more difficult for Windows.

CSS Reset Module for Drupal

I have been using Drupal since 2009 and one of things that is impressive is how modular it is. The core Drupal build is very extensible and there are literally 100's of thousand's of contributed modules out there, many of them regularly updated and maintained by the very active open source Drupal community.

So it has taken me a while to come up with an idea for a Drupal module that no one else seems to have addressed, the idea of a 'CSS reset'.

Using icomoon to support Retina Displays

One issue with retina displays that you may have come across is that the use of 72 dpi images look awfully pixelated. 

One approach is to use two images, one for retina and one for normal displays.

Creating Website Thumbnails

I am in the process of migrating a Xoops site to Drupal and wanted to migrate the 'Web Links' module feature to my new Drupal based links directory.

One option that adds a field formatter for the link type field type is the pagepeeker module that integrates nicely with the link module. However for my purpose I wanted to avoid any additional costs or compromising my sites identity etc.

Touching on :hover states

For years now web designers and developers have been utilising the :hover pseudo class to add life to their website or project. This is quite a common convention and is tradionally used to give hyperlinks diffferent states, but is not restricted to use just on hyperlinks (apart from say older browsers) .

 

The :hover selector is used to select elements when you mouse over them.

Tip: The :hover selector can be used on all elements, not only on links.

Speeding up Mac Mail

I have been a Mac user for many years now, but have been less than pleased with Apple's Mail application recently due to the fact it takes so long to start up and then to find anything using its built in search. This has been a problem for me for some time, so I thought I would share a solution with those of you who might be experiencing similar issues.

 I am personally using Mac OS 10.7.5 (Lion) with Mail 5.3.
