CSS Writing Mode
In the above design, we have a section title that is rotated 90deg around the top left of it’s origin. If you want to this without CSS writing-mode, we need to do the following:

Create a positioning context for the wrapper element by adding position:relative.
Position the title absolutely by adding position: absolute.
Change the transform origin based on how we want to rotate it. In our case we want to change it to the top left corner, so we add transform-origin: left top.
Rotate the title by adding transform: rotate(90deg).
Finally, we need to add some padding on the left side of the wrapper element in order to prevent the overlap between the section title and grid items.

The Weekly Iteration: Readline
Other useful tricks: Control-l clears the screen (you may have a conflict if you use vim-tmux-navigator). Readline has an undo feature! Control-_ undoes the last action, which can be extremely useful if you're editing a long line and make one change too many.

Readline has its own copy-paste functionality, but be aware that in Emacs/Readline that "yank" has the opposite meaning that it has in vim, in that it refers to the pasting action rather than the copying action. Yanking can be performed with Control-y to paste the last killed text and Meta-_ to paste the last argument of the previous command.

IntelliJ IDEA Pro Tips — Medium
Sometimes when you’re making quick changes to code, you want to immediately see how they will behave in a working application. Unfortunately, the Java HotSwap VM has lots of limitations: you can’t, say, add a new method or a field to a class and perform the hot swapping; the only thing you can actually change during the hot swapping is the method bodies.
Luckily, there is a way to amend this situation with the new open-source project Dynamic Code Evolution VM, a modification of Java HotSwap VM with unlimited support for reloading classes at runtime.
Using it in IntelliJ IDEA is easy with the dedicated plugin. When you enable the plugin, the IDE will offer you to download DCEVM JRE for your environment. Then you’ll have to choose it in the list of alternative JREs.

Update application
If you running your application on an application server (e.g. Tomcat, JBoss, etc), can you reload changed classes and resources using the Update application action via Ctrl+F10 (Cmd+F10).

Note, that reloading resources is only available if you deploy your application as an exploded WAR artifact.

Adjusting Audio Dynamics in VLC
One aspect of its flexibility that is not well utilized by many VLC users is its ability to manipulate the audio dynamics of the media it is playing. In other words, the Volume Normalizer can be configured to compensate for loud and quiet variations of a movie, podcast, or segment of music. Such a feature is very useful when using VLC in a loud environment: on an airplane, in a busy cafe, in an office area, or on a street. Some VLC users in schools, watching pre-recorded lectures, may need the audio dynamics set to provide clarity in a sound sensitive environment. The audio compression then automatically controls loudness to prevent distraction to others who may be nearby.

Enabling Vertical (\G) Output in the MySQL Client | Slaptijack
One problem with the MySQL command line client is that queries with lots of columns tend to wrap crazily based on your terminal size. To overcome this, you can get a vertical output by terminating your queries with \G instead of ;. I find this format extremely helpful in cases where I know only one row will be returned. By way of example, here’s the output of a query that shows the last IP to be inserted into the Spam Karma 2 blacklist for this website. When I originally ran this query, it wrapped multiple lines on my screen and was very difficult to read. What an improvement!

10.6: Take advantage of automatic Screen Sharing shortcuts
When you connect to any system via Screen Sharing in 10.6, a .vncloc file is automatically created within your user's Library/Application Support/Screen Sharing folder. (Copying this folder to any 10.5 system will also work, but you'll need to manually update it.) Clicking on any of these .vncloc files immediately launches Screen Sharing and connects to the selected system.

5-Step Drupal Distributions | Lullabot
In version 5, Drupal added Installation Profiles (sometimes also confusingly called distribution profiles) to its list of features. An installation profile is basically nothing more than a list of required modules and a variety of configuration code which gets performed during installation to give Drupal a bit more oomph out of the box.
