Today I am re-introduced to some designer favorites for good UI. One is awwwards.com and the other is dribbble.com. The page that got me started on this was a UI Design topic by awwards which I found during a morning peruse of the web.

Today I stumbled across a really snazzy website. Once you go to it, scroll down slowly and watch what happens to their main image after a second. I love this kind of innovation!

If, like me, you're only an occassional VIM user then you probably know that VIM comes with an outrageous amount of flexibility and is also loaded with shortcuts. You know these things about VIM, but have no clue on how to use the shortcuts and have no intention to figure them all out. Today I needed to yank (copy) 4 lines and had no idea how to. That's where this handy list of VIM shortcuts comes in handy. I'll be using that for some time now! FYI I merely googled for "VIM Shortcuts" and viola.

When being introduced to any language, one of the trickest parts for me is getting xml in an e4-like fashion. The closest thing I have found is this code that captures XML as a NSDictionary. I use it all the time at work and have even made my own spin-off of it that cleans white space off the strings as needed (you can find out more in the link).

This morning I found myself with a little IOS problem when I wanted to truncate a UILabel's text to a dynamic width. Forunately I found an article online about how to do just that - see "Truncate a String and Append an Ellipsis, Respecting the Font Size" by John Muchow
