    Thriving for Simplicity and Ease of Use Sharing Knowledge

    Every selector has the potential to have unintended side effects by targeting unwanted elements or clashing with other selectors.

    Summer Holiday Guide: How to spend the best time of the year

    Many years ago, I worked for my parents who own a video production company. Because it is a family business, you inevitably end up wearing many hats and being the czar of many different jobs.
