What will happen to my android apps if my device is replaced? Published on October 30, 2012
Last month my beloved Sony Tablet S suffered a “little” accident and the screen got broken.
I had it insured so I returned it to the shop.
There was a distinct possibility of the device being replaced other then repaired. That was fine by me with an exception:
- Will I loose all the apps I’d bought trough google play?
This was a legit concern since this was the first time it had happened to me, and my first thoughts where that probably apps are assigned to devices, and thus the apps i’d bought where assigned to the “broken tablet” and I could not re-install them in the “new device”!
Spomments, or the latest spam comments Published on July 3, 2012
At work I am the webmaster of a couple of hundred WordPress blogs from our clients. This allows me to get a lot of information about whats going out out there in terms of spam.
Lately there is a new comment spam technique that has greater chance of success then the previous ones i’ve seen so far:
The best Image replacement method for hyperlinks, so far… Published on April 26, 2012
Last week I’ve came across with a new ‘method for image replacement (e.g. on hyperlinks), wich I’ve tested successfully in my latest project, and thus I now recommend its usage…
So far the most common method, was to use the -9999px left-margin, but this had a few drawbacks, since it had to “draw” a huge 9999px box offscreen.
This new “recipe” is cleaner and dramatically improves performance when compared to the old -9999px method.
So this is the code to use:
This method was discovered, apparently, by Scott Kellum, design director at Treesaver, and published in www.zeldman.com/2012/03/01/replacing-the-9999px-hack-new-image-replacement/ where you can read some more about it.

WDMAC running on WordPress 3.3 “Sonny” Published on December 13, 2011
With a bunch of new features this latest version of WordPress brings a whole new set of choices both to users and developers, this being said:
Experienced users will appreciate the new drag-and-drop uploader, hover menus for the navigation, the new toolbar, improved co-editing support, and the new Tumblr importer. We’ve also been thinking a ton about what the WordPress experience is like for people completely new to the software. Version 3.3 has significant improvements there with pointer tips for new features included in each update, a friendly welcome message for first-time users, and revamped help tabs throughout the interface. Finally we’ve improved the dashboard experience on the iPad and other tablets with better touch support.
There is a ton of candy for developers as well. I’d recommend starting your exploration with the new editor API, new jQuery version, better ways to hook into the help screens, more performant post-slug-only permalinks, and of course the entire list of improvements on the Codex and in Trac.
