Everyone can choose for themselves how they’d like to produce their work. I personally don’t do something just because “the professionals” do it, and consequently if you don’t follow a specific coding style such as that, it does not make you “unprofessional” (and stating anything to the contrary is snobbish and unprofessional in itself).
Perhaps look into a content-editable DIV as opposed to an input field.
1. Photoshop for fleshing out the design (from blank canvas to fully realized layout) 2. Espresso for coding everything
2009 Unibody MacBook Pro - 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - 8 GB RAM - 128 GB SSD (this provides an immeasurable difference when working with large Photoshop files, as well as launching applications- more so than even upgrading the RAM , IMO)
And yeah that’s about it.
Actually, elevating the MacBook Pro up off of a table top or similar surface would help cool it. That wouldn’t be the case with a laptop with a plastic casing, but since the MacBook Pro is aluminum the entire case essentially acts as one large heatsink (which is also part of the reason why it seems to run hotter than most non-metal laptops: the heat is radiating out through the case, instead of being insulated inside of it- that, and Apple purposely keeps the fan RPMs low to reduce noise).
I personally use the app you mentioned, smcFanControl, and it works wonders for keeping my machine cool.
This thread just keeps getting better.
Let me put on my reviewers glasses first
^ That is beyond awesome.
Perhaps we could collaborate on something? Like you I’m growing restless waiting to actually develop something.
