- 56 Experts reveal 3 beloved front-end development tools
- OS X bash Update 1.0 - OS X Mavericks
Incredibly, you have to manually download and run this patch for Shellshock on OS X: it's not being pushed as a security update. But the new U2 album? *That's* being pushed to everyone.
- Y Combinator and the negative externalities of Hacker News | Danilo Campos
When [I wrote about Reddit and Hacker News](https://adactio.com/journal/6884), criticising their lack of moderation, civility, and basic decency, many people (invariably men) responded in defence of Reddit. Nobody defended Hacker News. Nobody. Oh, and all of you people (men) defending Reddit? [Here's your party line](http://www.redditblog.com/2014/09/every-man-is-responsible-for-his-own.html) ...I find it abhorrent.
- Responsive Images: If you're just changing resolutions, use srcset. | CSS-Tricks
Following on from [that post of Jason's I linked to](https://adactio.com/links/7523), Chris also emphasises that, for most use cases, you probably only need to use srcset (and maybe sizes), but not the picture element with explicit sources. It's really, really great that people are writing about this, because it can be quite a confusing topic to wrap your head around at first.
- 15 Lessons from 15 Years of Blogging - Anil Dash
I'd go along with pretty much everything Anil says here. Wise words from someone who's been writing on their own website for fifteen years (congratulations!). > Link to everything you create elsewhere on the web. And if possible, save a copy of it on your own blog. Things disappear *so* quickly, and even important work can slip your mind months or years later when you want to recall it. If it's in one, definitive place, you'll be glad for it.
- Using ServiceWorker in Chrome today - JakeArchibald.com
It's very early days for ServiceWorker, but Jake is on hand with documentation and instructions on its use. To be honest, most of this is over my head and I suspect it won't really "click" until I try using it for myself. Where it gets really interesting is in the comments. [Stuart asks](http://jakearchibald.com/2014/using-serviceworker-today/#comment-1603784672) "What about progressive enhancement?" And [Jake points out](http://jakearchibald.com/2014/using-serviceworker-today/#comment-1603813633) that because a ServiceWorker won't be installed on a first visit, you pretty much have to treat it as an enhancement. In fact, you'd have to go out of your way to make it a requirement: > You could, of course, throw up a splash screen and wait for the ServiceWorker to install, creating a ServiceWorker-dependant experience. I will hunt those people down.

A really handy bit of code from Aaron for building a robust file uploader. A way to make your web-based photo sharing more Instagrammy-clever.

I'm not quite sure *why* this is funny, but I am quite sure that it is.
