It's a RAPIDFire episode - Chris and Dave answer your questions as quickly as they can before the gun goes off. Too many tools, comp sci vs programming, vertical rythym, version controlling WordPress, self-employment, div-itis, and mobile email client performance issues are just some (ok all) of the topics covered.

    Hi guys. I really enjoy listening to this show every week, but this week seemed like it hit home a bit more for me because pretty much all of the questions were about things that I’ve been thinking about lately. So thanks for putting on a great show. I was wondering why, when you were discussing how to vertically center text over a picture, you didn’t mention setting the following styles for the txt: position: absolute, top: 50% and transform: translateX(-50%). With a position: relative set on the photo or container of the photo. Are you familiar with this method and think that it’s not a good choice? Or are there just so many ways to do this that you didn’t list this particular option? Just curious. Again, thanks for another great episode.
