Ok @LeaVerou. You win. I have been developing web and other app for years. Now I bough your CSS Secrets book and I am stunned. Thanks!

Retweeted by Lea Verou@brianleroux http://t.co/pLu15OtfIz but I would recommend either reading the print version or the PDF, otherwise you miss all the layout.@timknight Apparently it's a valid style, but not what we wanted and will fix it in the second print run.@avd_kvp Lee-ah :)Fifteen years I’ve been writing CSS and @LeaVerou is taking me to school right out the gate with this book of hers. So damn good.

Retweeted by Lea Verou@mrlozchka Yay! So you have finished it or starting now?@magrolino European Amazons are slower, apparently :( Sorry!@bdkjones different people, different needs. :) I can see how it can be useful in some projects, but not in this one.@bdkjones Well, somehow the ?codekitCB= URL slips in there, without me doing anything to encourage it… :/@davemcnally Hope you like it, let me know what you thought!Just ordered my copy of CSS Secrets by @LeaVerou on Amazon — was on Prime too… bonus!
Retweeted by Lea Verou@terkelg Hope you like it!! Please let me know what you thought! :)Bought @LeaVerou new CSS book. I haven't been this excited for a book. She's so skilled man, can't wait to learn from her! #CSSSecretsBook

Even ordering from the US Amazon would probably deliver faster than that!@bdkjones (correction: For SCSS and file concat, mainly). Defaults for New Projects seem to have just settings for this, no off switch.@bdkjones How can I completely, globally, once-and-for-all get rid of browser refresh? I just use CodeKit for SCSS & this is super annoying@anandchowdhary Awww, thank you!
