Practically Sass-y: CSS Sprites
Sometimes I can end up being a little too dogmatic when I approach building new designs, especially when I become overly focused in certain areas. Recently, I became a little obsessed with reducing HTTP requests and page weight while implementing a cool, new design.

A few of them said they wanted to try it, but just hadn’t yet. Others were reluctant to add a pre-processor to their workflow. All of their reasons are understandable, but here’s why they (and you) should consider adding it to their workflow.

I was definitely late to the DVD-by-mail game, but when I finally decided to take the plunge I chose Blockbuster because (at the time) it offered the best deal for me.

Like too many things that I start, the idea was an obsession for a short while and then sat unfinished. Well, it’s time that I finished it.
