Flex After Dark using

The Flex After Dark website has been updated and is now using, the CSS framework. I have to admit, at first the idea of a "CSS framework" just sounded kind of ridiculous. But after struggling with semi-complex CSS layouts over a couple of weeks, I started to get it. Overall, I'd recommend looking into a CSS framework, and seemed the best simple-to-effective ratio for me.

Flash Remoting for Python

AMFast (Flash Remoting for Python):

First AppEngine Deployment

I got my first app up and running Google AppEngine (GAE) this week. Overall the experience was pretty good. The only hangup was that it took a while for the app's indexes to build (over an hour). But after that, everything is humming.

Get Dropbox

Dropbox is a free, ridiculously easy service for syncing files across computers. If you use more than one computer regularly (e.g. desktop, laptop, office) it will painlessly keep files in your "dropbox folder" on each system synchronized.

How it works:
  • Install the executable (it stays in your sys-tray)
  • Select your "dropbox folder" on your system
  • Drag files into the folder
  • Booyah, you're in sync
You can even browse, download, and remove files from the web-based interface. They've done it right.

If you're not already using it, it's definitely worth checking out. Use this referral URL and we both get extra space:
