From CSS Tricks:

The purpose of a sticky footer is that it “sticks” to the bottom of the browser window. But not always, if there is enough content on the page to push the footer lower, it still does that. But if the content on the page is short, a sticky footer will still hang to the bottom of the browser window.

On this site, I’m using the table-row method mentioned in the comments, but have been considering switching to using flexbox instead.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about my ideal iPad. In that post, I wrote that I had settled on using the 9.7″ iPad Pro:

The main thing that factored into my decision to stick with the 9.7″ Pro (for now) is the True Tone display. I can’t say enough about it–it’s one of those features you don’t think will be a big deal but then after seeing it for a while you can’t stand looking at a display without it. It really is amazing.

My comment about the True Tone display still stands–I love it. However, my “(for now)” has come to fruition. Since that post I’ve sold the 9.7″ iPad Pro and went back to the 12.9″ model. I also wrote:

One thing I feel like I go back and forth about constantly is the size. I love the size of the 9.7″ for portability and ease-of-use in bed, but I also loved the size of the 12.9″ Pro for using at my desk or on the couch or patio or really anywhere but in bed :)

I realized that I spent most of my time working on my iPad either at my desk or dining room table or couch and not really in bed, and the 12.9″ model is far better for my workflow. I typically have Coda for iOS open on 3/4 of the screen and then either Twitterrific or another app open in the other 1/4. With the 12.9″ model, I can still comfortably work in Coda at 3/4 width. On the 9.7″ model, it quickly starts to feel cramped.

So, there’s my reasoning. I’m sure in another two weeks I’ll regret selling the 9.7″ and wish I had it back, but for now the 12.9″ iPad Pro is back to being my “main computer” once again.


BOSTON — Jackie Bradley Jr. is now halfway to Joe DiMaggio’s record 56-game hitting streak.

It took the Red Sox’s center fielder all of one pitch to extend his streak to 28 games, as Bradley clubbed a 91-mph fastball by Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa for a double off the Green Monster in left-center to lead off the bottom of the second inning on Tuesday night.

Halfway there! Go JBJ!

We finally got our wedding photos back from the photographer and they came out great. Here are some of my favorites :)

From KGW:

Last week in Yellowstone National Park, visitors were cited for placing a newborn bison calf in their vehicle and transporting it to a park facility because of their misplaced concern for the animal’s welfare. In terms of human safety, this was a dangerous activity because adult animals are very protective of their young and will act aggressively to defend them. In addition, interference by people can cause mothers to reject their offspring. In this case, park rangers tried repeatedly to reunite the newborn bison calf with the herd. These efforts failed. The bison calf was later euthanized because it was abandoned and causing a dangerous situation by continually approaching people and cars along the roadway.

They put the baby bison in their car BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT WAS COLD. Sigh. Are you kidding me? Humanity is doomed.

(Reuters Health) – Drinking more coffee might help reduce the kind of liver damage that’s associated with overindulging in food and alcohol, a review of existing studies suggests.

Researchers analyzed data from nine previously published studies with a total of more than 430,000 participants and found that drinking two additional cups of coffee a day was linked to a 44% lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis.

Yay, coffee!

I just realized that the contact form wasn’t actually sending me emails upon submission, so if you’ve contacted me through the form, I likely never received it. Anyway, it’s fixed now, so please feel free to contact me again and I’ll actually get it this time. Sorry about that.
