It's been a while since Safari 6 went out. If you've recently upgraded to Safari 6 and was wondering where the "Appearance" tab went, well, it's no longer there. And since it's gone, I can't take a screenshot. You could look at other photos online. I'm not a fan of this preference pane disappearing since I don't like the font sizes on lower resolution screens like this Macbook Pro I'm currently using. The default fonts and sizes are much better on the Air. To fix this problem, make a css file like so:
You could, of course, change the font-family and size to anything else you prefer. "Octicon Regular is for Github (which also happens to host the above snippet). Then under the "Advanced" preference pane of Safari, load up that file. If you are clever, you can place the file in your Dropbox folder and have it accessible everywhere.

I've created this blog that, from hereon forward, will document my future so-called accomplishments and evident failures on the road to them.
First Real Web ApplicationMy first real web application is Eliza. She's one of the first natural language processors. Tell her your troubles and she will try to respond like a Rogerian psychotherapist. This is her Wikipedia entry: ELIZA.
Things I've learned (and some discarded) in order:
- Ruby - dropped for the next item
- Python: A wonderful language but sadly, not one I ended up using. Eventually dropped.
- Google App Engine
- Web2Py - can be used with GAE but turned out to be too complicated for my needs.
- CherryPy - can be used with GAE but turned out to be too simple.
- I eventually found out that GAE's mechanism for channels is too complicated to wrap my head around. Specially for a beginner web developer. So I dropped both Python and Google App Engine for something else entirely.
- Bootstrap - I don't have to worry too much about CSS anymore! I can just code and it will look nice! Thank you to Twitter for this one.
- Opa - Looked interesting but the seemingly complete documentation gives rise to documentation like these.
