CSS animations and performance

Very few CSS animations are cheap in performance terms. Anything that causes the layout process (AKA reflow in Gecko browsers) is bad. The more complex your page the worse the performance hit. But – these four are apparently particularly cheap… Continue Reading →

Batch setting the correct time and frame number on 35mm scans in Lightroom

Scans of my 35mm film shots always come back from the minilab both numbered in reverse order and with the scan time as the only date. Not in Ordnung. If they all have the same timestamp – then they will order… Continue Reading →

Installing Adobe Creative Suite (CS5) on macOS Sierra

Oh my word! Gmail finally to support style tags and media queries…

I was such a doubter when I first heard the rumours. Of course it’ll take a while, then throw in the issue android email client fragmentation, but blimey this will make building email a lot easier in the not-too-distant future.

HTTPS is a speed demon…
