Resizing Coda’s file dialog on OS X Yosemite

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 | Tech

Google Chrome is not the only application struggling with OS X Yosemite’s file dialog. When saving files in Coda, the dialog will continually fall off the bottom of the screen.

Currently the only known workaround for the issue is to switch to the simple view by clicking the up arrow next to the file name box, and then click it again to re-expand the dialog and then it will be probably sized again. However, you need to do this every time you save a file.

Panic and buy more petrol!

Thursday, April 5th, 2012 | Religion & Politics, Thoughts

It’s a hard life being a petrol tanker driver. Having to struggle by on an average salary of £45,000 a year. How do they cope?

Actually, as a result of finding out how much they rake in, I’m thinking about suggesting to Elina that she retrains in HGV driving as there seems to be far more money in it than translating, not to mention an ever widening variety of role models such as Lisa Kelly.

Anyway, onto the real topic. It’s easy to say that the mini-crisis we recently experienced was caused by politicians. It is easy to say this, because it mainly was. What is a ridiculous thing to say, everyone should panic and start storing fuel in jerry cans.

But to let the media off would be short sighted. Even the BBC for example where jumping on the bandwagon (or should I say tanker) with a count of how much extra money the petrol companies were making out of the increase in petrol sales.

That doesn’t make any sense. Why would people by more petrol overall? Surely they would just ensure their cars are filed up, but they wouldn’t burn more petrol, so they wouldn’t buy more in the long run. If anything they will look to conserve fuel, and therefore will actually cost petrol companies money.
