I’ve had this (mt) DV box for quite some time, mostly use it for staging, small WordPress gigs and running a qmail server that forwards mail elsewhere. It’s reliable, has lots of client-friendly features like Plesk, and can host a zillion websites. But it was always kinda slow, especially from the eastern hemisphere, and executing otherwise simple server admin stuff (like adding ssh keys) was always a bit perverted by the finicky complexities that come with Plesk. So, it wasn’t really my go-to for builds with serious production needs.
Here’s a magnificently eloquent compass mixin that will work CSS3 transition magic on all elements in one fell swoop:
Picked up the 5 recently. Here’s what I did with the extra row of apps:
My main reference for this article is the Plesk Command Line Reference (Linux) direct from the Parallels Plesk Documentation Page. Much thanks to the folks at Media Temple for passing on these links!
I’m really not big on the whole “Mac vs. PC” spectacle. It’s rather distracting and somewhat distasteful. I primarily used Windows PC’s through age 18, with the exception of a few Macs in computer lab at school. It wasn’t that I really chose Windows over Mac, it was something familiar and that dominated every computer store in existence other than the Apple Store. I thought Apple computers were more like expensive toys (purely based on looks and scarcity), plus I didn’t want to re-learn or adjust to anything new if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. Working on a new operating system can be crippling, even embarrassing at first. The first reaction for many is “this machine doesn’t do X,” or “where’s the Y button,” and other more profane sayings.
