Here's a nice little CSS trick I cooked up today when talking to @heliumworkx.
You know how you sometimes use
border-bottom to style links? Then you must be familiar with situations where there's an image inside a link on which the border looks really stupid. Unfortunately there's no CSS selector that targets links containing an
img element, so a sprinkle of magic is needed in order to hide the border.

I recently came across VirtualBox, which is a great app that lets you run virtual machines on your Mac. Surprisingly, Microsoft offers different installations of Windows as disc images for free on their site.
So with these two combined, you have a pretty sweet testing environment. Properly configuring Windows in the virtual machine can be a bit of pain in the ass though, so this article aims to break it down into small, easy steps to get you up and running in no time.

Here at work we often go crazy because of CakePHP's "helpful" displaying of error messages.

I often want to instantly move a selection of files into a newly created folder. The scenario is this: I select a bunch of files in Finder, click a button and *bam*: a new folder is created in the current location containing my selection.
This cannot be done natively, but I wrote an Applescript that does this for me.

So what could I do but pick it up and give it a read?

When generating alphabetically ordered resultsets from your tables, it may be useful to eliminate articles (the and a in the English language).
The following is a simple method of doing this.

Recently I wanted to use an uncommon font in a website, but the site was too image-rich to use sIFR, (loading time made for an uneasy user experience).
I decided to add the font anyway in my stylesheet, and provide a “lo-fi” experience, for people who didn’t have the font handy.
The lo-fi version however, should mimic the style of the uncommon font as good as possible.
Sometimes, though, that’s easier said than done.
