How to Code up a Web Design from PSD to HTML A couple of weeks back we went through the process of creating a gnarly snowboarding themed website design concept in Photoshop. The tutorial covered the process of designing our site concept from sketch to finished PSD design. Now, let’s take the design to the next step and code up a complete mockup in HTML and CSS, ensuring our code is semantic and standards compliant. We’ll then add some finishing touches with a spot of jQuery.

Start Every Day as a Producer, Not a Consumer I have to agree that my most productive days are those where I don't allow myself to read the news, check e-mail, facebook, etc., right after I get up. However, that happens because I've got a ton of stuff to get done, and the outside world takes a back seat until my workload is under control. However, there are certain biological necessities that have to happen before I can be productive. The dog gets let out, I go to the bathroom, I eat/drink something, and *then* I sit down to be productive. Building a PC? You Need This Chart If you've ever built your own PC, you know it can be a rewarding and cost-saving experience. But unless you're really fluent in pin counts and socket shapes, remembering which pieces go where requires a lot of Googling. Reddit user Proteon shared a fantastic image that itemizes all the ports, connectors, sockets, cards, slots and cables you'll need to identify when piecing your baby together.

There's a larger and more up-to-date version on his profile which we present to you here. Check it out below, but you'll want to grab the full 4320 x 6120 version to see all the glorious details.

The 6 Most Gigantic Everything in the History of War In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, "War makes people act like dicks." We don't want to glorify war or otherwise portray it as something other than terrible. Yet, war makes people think big, and sometimes you have to sit back and be amazed by what humans can accomplish when they really, really want to kill each other. The Big Gun: The Schwerer Gustav The Gustav is the biggest gun ever fired in combat, period. "Heavy Gustav," as the Germans called it, was 150 feet-long and weighed 2.7 million pounds (or, as much as 750 full-sized sedans).

Procrastination hack: '(10+2)*5' Following on the idea of the procrastination dash and Jeff’s progressive dash, I’ve been experimenting with a squirelly new system to pound through my procrastinated to-do list. Brace yourself, because it is a bit more byzantine than is Merlin 2005’s newly stripped-down habit. It’s called (10+2)*5, and today it will save your ass. Who it’s for procrastinatorsthe easily distractedcompulsive web-surferspeople with a long list of very short tasks (a/k/a “mosquitos”) people having trouble chipping away at very large tasks

Video for Everybody! Video for Everybody is simply a chunk of HTML code that embeds a video into a website using the HTML5 <video> element, falling back to Flash automatically without the use of JavaScript or browser-sniffing. It therefore works in RSS readers (no JavaScript), on the iPhone / iPad (don’t support Flash) and on many browsers and platforms.

It is not a neatly packaged, fully-featured solution for those unfamiliar with HTML. Greek Gods Family Tree / Genealogy Doing homework? Your teacher has already seen this.
