Pom + Cane = Grenadine

Spent an hour today making grenadine. It’s pomegranate season, so how’s the time. Add a few shots of vodka and itll keep in the freezer for a while. 

If you’re inclined, it’s really easy. Seed five pomegranates, juice the seeds, sieve. You should have around two cups of juice. Then put in a little pot with a cup of sugar and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cut the heat, taste for sweetness. Let cool and add 3oz of vodka if freezing. Otherwise keeps about a month. 

Empathy

A related process I’ve been through fairly often:

  1. Why in the world did someone write this crazy code?
  2. git blame the-crazy-code.c
  3. blowery 01234bc function hereBeDragons() {
  4. Sigh.

Remember, comments are not just for others; they’re also for your brain cells that make it past the whiskey.

Link: Screen Resolution ≠ Browser Window

Back in 2011, to gather that original data, I wrote some JavaScript to measure both the screen size and the browser window size and save them both to a database as one record. We found that less than 1% of people had a browser window that was exactly as big as their monitor. But that’s a little unfair as it doesn’t account for browser UI and such, so with generous padding allowed (200px), we found that 61% of sessions has a browser window that was pretty close to their monitor size.

That’s still 39% of sessions where the browser window is smaller, though, which is interesting.
