Converting PX to REMs with a Simple Mixin

One of the first challenges you face when working with a designer is fonts. Designers are typically working with a fixed unit such as pixels, and we developers are typically working in EMs or REMs. So how do we handle the conversion?


@d44pan Chrome is the new IE. They’re forcing users to use their products with their browser.

@AntMennie Not exactly sure. He somehow ripped his toenail clean off. The vet said it happens if they’re running on carpet (which he does) and he was also going crazy chasing a squirrel outside of those things

So a post script to this picture. Doc had ripped his toenail out and really hurt himself. He knew I was the only one home but in my office so he used the cat door to come to the basement and get me.

This is obvious I guess, but if you want to cut down on bothsidesism, put people on TV who have subject-matter expertise acquired through reporting or research... not generalists who are asked to opine on a whole bunch of topics they don't really know anything about.

Not exactly how to put my feelings today into words, but here goes: if people are going to attack and murder my people, I’m proud it’s for our organizations supporting immigrants and refugees.

The death penalty doesn’t deter criminals or crime. If it did Texas should have no crime.

Saying “more guns” will make some situation better is like saying “more drugs” will make you sober.

Just bought a car off @Carvana the process was dead simple. Dealerships are toast.

@StaceyClermont According to this article they’re reverting those changes but they’re not hotfixing they’re going to adjust the settings next release. Google of 2018 is living off the halo 2006 and it’s time for me to go. Found great alternatives for everything.

@StaceyClermont plus I just don’t trust google. They have way too much info and even if this blows over and they adjust their settings back to something normal you’re still seeing that whole “we know what’s best for you” mentality creep in.

I’ve almost totally removed google products from my life. Last thing lve got is gmail. Switching over to Fastmail soon and after that I’m google-less. Feels good.

Had a moment of horror tonight when a student reminded me we have a quiz coming up. Then I remembered I’m writing it not taking it
