One of my favorite things about summer is that I can start riding my bike more. In the “before times” (when working from the office didn’t give you COVID), I spent half of the year biking to work instead of driving. Back in 2018, I dropped $1,568 on an electric bike from Rad Power Bikes …Continue reading "My other car is a bicycle"
On September 8th, Android 11 was released to Pixel devices and unfortunately, I installed it on my trusty Pixel 3. Pretty quickly, it started bootlooping and never recovered (despite a trip to UBreakIFix and a plea to Google). Even though I have a Google-made phone running a Google-made OS on a Google-made cellular network, they …Continue reading "The great iPhone experiment"

So far this year, I’ve written 65 posts with an average word count per post of 167. Compared to the five posts in 2016, and …Continue reading "My Blogging Goals"
So, you need to show tabular data on a webpage and make it as digestible as possible? For demo purposes, we are going to look at the top 10 most populous municipalities in Wisconsin. See the Pen Table Zebra Striping – Example 1 by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. In the above example, we just …Continue reading "Playing with tabular data"
I’m not sure that this concept is universally understood. I figured that it is time to take a swing at it. According to w3schools, a block-level element always starts on a new line and takes up the full width available (stretches out to the left and right as far as it can).
