I actually find serif fonts easier to read for long texts. So I'm loving this one! ;)

-----


Actually now that I think about it, it's not that the font itself is bad, it's the context in which it's used. It just looks weird on that website.

-----


Well, their status page is telling lies.

-----


Good choice of font. I can't stand reading long online material with sans-serif.

-----


Yes, it drives me crazy when people use sans serif fonts for body copy. You need the serifs to help tie the line together!

There are sadly few serif fonts on Google Web Fonts that have consistent letterforms, good metrics, a nice middle-of-the-road x-height, and good bold and italics, but Merriweather is quite nice.

Philippines has one. They treat you like criminal when you try to leave.

Please use a serif font for non-Titles. Every time I read something online that is a couple of paragraphs long (eg: documentation), I always wished that they have a Times/serif font version of this document.

It would probably not be as "beautiful" compared to Non-serif fonts but it would certainl help my eyes (and I'm sure for others as well - especially if we spend hours in front of a computer screen).

Find different ways in doing it. When I do not have time, I do it like how I did it in my previous projects/work. When I have some time, I try do it in a different way - look at my previous code and then try to improve.

-----


I played around with backbone.js for a couple of days and gave up. The documentation is there but it doesn't help someone who knows 0% about the concept.

Then I tried Knockout.js - It has a very nice quickstart. http://learn.knockoutjs.com/ - after a few days playing around with it, I started on my project.

Good resources: Knockout.js Documentation http://www.knockmeout.net/ Stackoverflow

Knockout.js is great. It doesn't force a whole framework on you. It is straight forward to use. You can slide it in into an existing project easily. I use it from turning pages to be merely more interactive to full fledged single-page app.

Does it have "smart" word wrapping like Sublime Text 2? I think it is one of the killer features for me. I sometimes need to work with a small screen and need word-wrapping on.

-----


If by smart wrapping you mean indented wrapping, yes, it does. Set you preferred wrap mode to Indent in Settins, Preferences, Editing, and then toggle Word Wrap from the View menu.

SciTE, with which Notepad++ shares the scintilla editing component, has quite a few settings for wrapping:

(Search for “wrap” in the page.)

I haven’t looked into how many of those are supported in Notepad++, as I don’t use word wrap myself.

Firebug. It takes a lot of space. I work on 17" 5 year old Macbook Pro and could not imagine working on an 11" screen. Also ShiftIt and Alfred are probaly the most useful productivity apps I have used.

-----


I use this site daily. I used this last night. I see you have updated the site a bit ;)

I also recommend this to almost everyone! Also, I suggest that you have a .com domain name to redirect to sleepti.me? This is because I spend a great deal of time and effort explaining the domain name - sleepyti.me :| Instead of having something like: "sleepytime.com". Sleepyti.me works great when typed but not when spoken (word-of-mouth). Just my 2 cents.

-----


I'm interested to know if you have you been having consistent results using it? I tested it last night, and just woke up several minutes ago in fact, feeling refreshed and ready to go. I've been having trouble waking up even with an alarm, and I usually wake up feeling not so good. With this, I woke up at the very instant of my alarm, choosing the 3rd option. Then again, it could be because I was too excited to try out something new, although I was initially skeptical about it.

-----


I think the results are very good for me. When I wake up using Sleepytime, I usually feel refreshed and able to do push-ups and some stretching early in the morning.

1) Just right before sleeping, check sleepytime 2) Set alarm 3) I wake up refreshed

Note: I have a very flex schedule, so this works for me.

for me the few extra brain cycles required to overcome this stutter actually burned the name into my memory.

related to why i remembered 'google' for the goofy name (except how many oo's) in early 2000's

and 90 minutes approximates the 6billion people well enough. and the task is so simple and specific that i will actually use it.. wow

btw please allow to skip selection of minutes or default to 0 so example

[5] [(minute)] [AM] [calculate]
