Brain dump February 2013
One particular improvement to the blog is that I have removed the old lightbox plugin and replaced it with Photoswipe, a responsive image gallery/ lightbox, which make the site much more user-friendly when used on a smartphone or tablet. (Screen grab below - click through to the blog post and click on a thumbnail to try it out)
I've got my eye on packery for too old to skate - it currently uses Masonry, but with different length blog posts it often leaves unwanted gaps, so i'm hoping that this along with maybe some smaller blocks I can fill out the page retaining the angled content.
I am now plugged back into the matrix thanks to a contract-free Google Nexus 4. It's a great device - I was actually on the verge of buying a contract-free iPhone 4S, but the Nexus came back into stock, and is a much higher spec device with bigger screen, for much less money. I've found it has helped massively with blogging as the on-screen keyboard is big enough to type fairly quickly in those "down-time" moments. I had to resort to trimming my sim card to microsim size, using a template.
