Issue #166 (JS Utilities, Mobile, Uncats)09/22/16
Hey, everyone, as was the case last week, I don't have anything too special prepared for the intro. As I mentioned last issue, I'm still recovering from an eye problem, so I was barely able to put this week's issue together. I hope it's still a nice collection of stuff for you to fiddle with.
So the only thing I'll do in this intro is give a little bit of advice based on my current problem...
Get your eyes checked regularly! In my case, I already had permanent problems in the problematic eye, which I've been working with for over 20 years. So it's not so bad. I'll likely need some surgery (which isn't as scary as it sounds) to help fix the problem, and everything should eventually go back to normal and I might even be in better shape than I was before, so that's a good possibility.
So again, don't neglect how important your eyes are if you are a designer or a developer. Take good care of them and get them checked out regularly by a professional. And don't take anything I'm saying here as medical advice, get that from a real medical professional.
Oh and if there are any typos or other problems in the content of this issue... Well, you'll understand why. :)
