Excellent content. I did find that the code previews in the side bar occasionally changed before or after I expected. I understand the intent with having them adjacent rather than inline ... but I'd probably prefer inline. It would be nice to make this an option of the presentation format.



Is it because you read closer to the top or bottom of the viewport?

I want to add a print mode that would have each code step inline.


I tend to flip back and forth from hacker news articles (e.g. check slack, check build progress). I try to position the page while scrolling so I can find my place back in the text. That alternates from "align top of content section to top of scroll pane" and "align bottom of section content to bottom of scroll pane" depending on the length of the section. I also do it unconsciously as I read, like a habit, to prepare the page in case I need to jump away.

Of the two, I probably favour aligning to the top. But since I alternate I would probably have changed to inline.
