TwigZone's moved to a better place, and so does this blog.

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.
Tech Computers, technology, software, whatever, it goes here.

Dropbox account: deleted.

Posted July 6th, 2012 at 02:29 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Might as well, considering that if I were not to delete it, I'd have three cloud storage services running.

Dropbox, SkyDrive, and SugarSync.

I'm throwing Dropbox out because it's redundant at this point. SkyDrive is used for everything that I have to have access to anywhere, even from my phone, while SugarSync is more for university work.

So long.

I'm a WP

Posted June 26th, 2012 at 04:08 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

This is what happens when the Samsung Galaxy S III went out of stock while I was signing up for a contract.

Well, it's miles better than my old phone, that's for sure.

The Papyrus font is now gone in Windows 8

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 10:34 PM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Good riddance? That font sure looked out of place, then again. I do think that anything using that font will look screwed up on computers running Windows 8 or later...

Also, one neat things I have noticed is that Comic Sans MS now has true italics, and not merely slanted letterforms. It's especially noticeable with its lowercase t's.

Testing testing not-so-experimental CSS properties

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 09:43 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

I wonder whether I can get away with not prefixing anything, even with these so-called "cutting-edge" CSS?

Well? I think I like the current state of browser competition.

The browser is not what you expect. (The tags are a big giveaway)

This might be the first step going away from vendor prefix hell

*writes server-side scripts in ASP.NET Web Pages 2.0 instead of PHP*

Posted May 3rd, 2012 at 07:28 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

There was a time where I had a WAMP box running on my desktop. I fooled around with PHP back then. So many syntax errors and parser warnings!

Now I'm running WebMatrix.

For some reason it's way easier to use Razor... maybe because the syntax is simpler or something, and I don't have to remember much. Or maybe because the WebMatrix home page has a readable tutorial?
