Design Greatness

Smutty WorksResponsive, HTML5, CSS3, mobile-optimized.  If these terms mean nothing to you, you must not be a web designer.  If you are a web designer today is a fantastic day to start logging resources.

If you have not bookmarked the Unstoppable Robot Ninja, go do it now!  Brilliant, easy reading details for getting your sites optimized for responsive design.  Another great resource is Web Designer Wall.  This site provides freebies and great tutorials to get you kick-started in leveling up your designs.  And here is a Smutty approved site; Cats Who Code.  This is a must read for anyone who dreams of being a designer or developer.

And the ultimate must-have for responsive design; a FREE responsive slider.  Many thanks to Smashing Mag for coming through as usual.

Need to create a WordPress site, but don’t know how?  Visit ThemePURE, a great site with low cost templates for WordPress designs.

Once you have your responsive design created, test it out at responsive px.  Make sizing adjustments accordingly and publish!

A few weeks ago Techsnoop had the joy of trying to help someone enable their wireless internet on a Compaq CQ56.  This unit has a function key that theoretically turns the wireless service on or off.  However, holding down the function key and pressing the wireless key does nothing.

By accident (holding down function plus other keys and hitting the wireless key), I discovered that you need to hold down the function and alt key while tapping the wireless key. There is no documentation on this glitch.

So for everyone who is about to smash their CQ56, here is the answer.
Too bad it didn’t come from Compaq.

Small BusinessFollowing up on supporting Small Business for 2012, I would like to give a shout out to my friend J Gary Dewberry at My Cyber Talk.  If you haven’t taken a look at this blog, go now and read through some of his posts.  Thoughtful and written in near poetry form, mycybermap ranges on multiple topics, but focuses on small business and economic and personal growth.

Keep the love going and give a shout out to someone you follow or someone new you find on your social networks.
