Response to an article about PS Vue Slim price increases

I read an article about PS Vue price increases and I was wondering what people who didn’t just sign up for the cheap plan thought. This was my comment and question. Article: http://cordcuttersnews.com/reminder-playstation-vue-raising-price-subscribers-october-2017/ Question, I’ve read about the price changes for the slim package but what about those who are already on the higher plans like the Elite plan for 54 bucks? I’m on that after a terrible experience with Direct TV Now signing on for their first few months (free HBO and 30 bucks a month could not keep me there).

Really? Nah, that couldn’t be! I honestly don’t even test on IE if I don’t have time because I program on macs and my Windows on Parallels on my laptop refused to install correctly and I have not had time to debug it. My […]

Object Oriented CSS

http://po.st/oocss – Original Article I read on Object Oriented CSS A colleague of mine told me about OOCSS a few days ago and I was intrigued and wanted to know more so I started reading about it around the web.   It’s funny, I didn’t have a “Eureka!” moment or didn’t say “Wow, this is cool!” I’ll tell you why! I actually felt like I was cheated a bit and lost some time developing my own CSS styling in this manner.  When I got back into coding around 2 years or so, I instinctively started styling with classes for the most part instead of ids because instinctively I thought, this […]
