In lieu of a massive post, full of fantastic-ness, I’ve decided to clue you into my world just a little bit. Many time’s I’ll come across a great internet resource and mentally note to blog about it, but with a busy life, a wife, a 2 year-old and another kid on the way, I’m finding that I just don’t have the time. Will I continue to do tutorials or little ditties on CSS or freebies? Sure I will and I plan to. But for now, let me tell you about some cool things I found today.

- Wilson Miner’s Website
I love Wilson Miner’s minimalist site. Wait…he did the redesign for Apple.com? No wonder I like his style.
- Apple Keyboard
After asking a ton of people on twitter, I broke down and bought the new apple keyboard. I love it. It so totally rocks compared to the plastic breadbox I was using before.

- Coda updated to 1.6 Plugins Available
Of the myriads of updates and new feautres that Panic packs into every update, one feature stands out from the crowd: Plugins. That’s right – you can develop your own plugins for Coda. That’s freaktastically rad.
That’s it for today peeps. Let me know if you like this and want me to keep it up. Cheers!
