Since I’m not a player on Dribbble yet I thought I’d post a few shots of things I’ve made to this site. If anyone would like to invite me to share these on Dribbble I’d be very grateful!
As a web performance extremist I’ve been wanting to explore Jekyll for a while now. Having no background in Ruby I was put off at first, but then I came across Learning Jekyll By Example by Andrew Munsell, which clearly describes the steps needed to get up and running.
For now I’m using GitHub to host the site. It seems reliable enough, and it makes pushing new updates really simple. Large, static files will be hosted on Amazon S3 to keep the repository clean.
I have Mac OS X configured so that my Magic Trackpad tilts away from me, keeping my wrist at a more natural angle when gesturing. Combined with a palm rest this is a much more comfortable way to operate than with the standard orientation.
- Open a Terminal window and type:
sudo defaults write com.apple.MultitouchSupport ForceAutoOrientation YES
- Change the trackpad orientation to whatever you’re comfortable with, then rest five fingers on it (the software’s going to pick up the shape your five contact points makes). The trackpad configures itself, and you’re good to go.
