<strong>UPDATE:</strong>Cmd-T allows you to search for the files in your currently opened TextMate project. I learned this shortly after writing this post, but forgot to mention it. Thanks again to Tyson Tune for pointing that out.

What is the point of a version number? For the most part, it's just a [milestone](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milestone). The difference between version `2.3` and `2.4` of a software is a given feature-set. Between `2.3` and `2.5` is an even larger feature-set that encompasses our previous feature-set.

Safari interprets `/* */`s differently than FireFox or <acronym title="Internet Explorer">IE</acronym>. <acronym title="FireFox">FF</acronym> and <acronym title="Internet Explorer">IE</acronym> will ignore a unmatched `/*` or `*/`, whereas Safari will ignore parts of code if there's a lone `*/`. Once I found that out, I was able to get the list items that are used throughout the site to render properly.

If you're using `symfony`'s `sync` command to synchronize files across environments (e.g. moving your development files to a staging server), it helps usually to clear the cache of the receiving server.

<p>We make a lot of mistakes, and by we, I don&#8217;t mean myself, but I mean we as humanity.

Did you describe the <a href="http://reviewsby.us/restaurant/newsroom/menu/pesto-chicken-sandwich">Pesto Chicken</a> as having <em>pisto</em> and not <em>pesto</em>?

+site: spindrop
---
<acronym title="Universal Resource Locator">URL</acronym>s should be treated as prime real estate. Their primary purpose is to locate resources on the Internet. So for a web developer, it makes sense to make things as user-friendly as possible. One effort is to remove the extensions from files. I don't mean things like `.html` or `.pdf`, as those give you an idea that you're reading a page of content or a <acronym title="Portable Document Format">PDF</acronym> document. I meant things like `.php` or `.asp` or `.pl`, etc. These are unnecessary items that just clutter the location bar on most browsers.

We had a change of heart on tagging. Tag everything! Initially I felt that only menu items should be tagged. "People want to know [what dishes are spicy][r1]"... true, but people also want to know what restaurants are in [Uptown] or are [Mexican] or are [closed on mondays][com]. So... we now have restaurant tags. [Login] and tag something!

A recent peeve of mine is <acronym title="Universal Resource Locator">URL</acronym>s that you can't manually traverse. Let me explain. Let's say you visit `http://reviewsby.us/restaurant/cheesecake-factory`. You should manually be able to remove `cheesecake-factory` and see an index page of restaurants at `http://reviewsby.us/restaurant/`. It makes logical sense for that page to be something that would enable you to find more restaurants.
