$49 Mac super bundle, charity

My friend Davey sent me an IM today about a thing (company? event?) called MacHeist. I’m sure he’s mentioned them before but honestly, I didn’t really pay attention… I’ve been way too busy to keep up on cool shareware lately. But this time around, I took notice because MacHeist is currently selling a $49 “super […]

An article on tech writing

I finally wrapped up part one of that series I’ve been promising. Finally. It’s long in coming and, well, it’s just really long. This article is the first of a three-part series on tech writing that has been knockin’ around in my brain for some time. I hope you like it. On with the show… […]

Interview With Marcel Molina of 37Signals

It’s about that time again—time for another Slash7 interview, that is. My previous interview with Tobi Luetke was a great success, and many of you expressed an interest in further interviews. I hadn’t forgotten that, but it has been on the shelf. Until now, anyway. This time my interviewee is Marcel Molina, of 37signals, formerly […]

The Migratory Loon *update*

Hey folks, I’ve just moved slash7.com from my dear friend Davey’s colocated box, to a shiny new Planet Argon hosting account. This means that: Davey will no longer have to tolerate my complaining I will no longer have to complain to somebody who is hosting me purely out of the goodness of his own hearts […]

RJS Demystified With Pretty Colors!

I probably should have spent the time today to fix the slash7 template, but my heart wasn’t in it. My heart was, on the other hand, in this: That’s a screenshot of the second page of my first-ever multi-page cheat sheet, RJS Demystified. RJS Demystified is actually an entire 3 pages long, all in achingly […]

Saturday Post? Well, Maybe Not

So I didn’t finish what I thought I’d finish today, owing to the fact that some of my friends came over to visit me. Yay! But here’s a little teaser: Hold tight. It’ll be comin’ tomorrow.

Converting to Mephisto – Almost Done

Dear readers, As you can see, Slash7 is almost back to its former beautiful glory. Once I write some custom liquid plugins for Mephisto to handle the rest of the sidebar, and customize some section templates, it’ll be all the way better… and perhaps even better than before. So you wanna be a convert… If […]

The Swing & Things

Gentle readers, I know I’ve been letting you down, but I’ve got a good excuse, I swear it! My life’s been pretty hectic lately; ever since just before OSCON, I’ve spent 2-3 weeks out of every four on location at my new workplace. (I changed jobs the week before OSCON, and you’ll notice there begun […]

OSCON 2006 Interface / UXP Presentations

I have two presentations at OSCON last Thursday, and as usual, I promised to post the slides. A little delayed, perhaps, but here they are. I recommend them in the order I list ‘em… although there’s no audio to accompany it, you can still probably glean some good infos!

Javascript Boot Camp Tutorial

On Monday I gave a 3-hour tutorial first thing in the morning, here at O’Reilly OSCON 2006 in Portland. From the description: Even though AJAX wouldn’t ever have become so popular if the Javascript world hadn’t suddenly exploded with mature development and testing tools, there’s little information on how to be a really good Javascript […]
