  • 22:25 What is the best practice for HTML comments?
  • 28:30 The Mac use among developers might not be as prevalent as you think. Are you following what Microsoft is doing with WSL?
  • 36:00 I remember Dave said something about cleaning up his database on some site. Deleting row´s I guess. Which rows in the database can you safely remove? That won´t somehow break your site but just speed/clean it up.
  • 47:10 Where do you guys fall when it comes to ordering your CSS properties in a declaration?
  • 53:00 I heard you guys briefly mention "tachyons" in a recent Rapidfire episode. Have you guys spent some time with it beyond just playing around for a few minutes?
