Can relate to those stories and have also been working with clients who have previously had poor experiences with Web developers. It's a great feeling when I can help clients get their websites working again and restore their confidence in Web developers. 
On Friday I had to laugh. A sad laugh that is brought on by the strong desire not to cry.

Within 48 hours I had received three different pieces of communication from people speaking negatively about their website developers. Which is beyond frustrating since this is my profession and we’ve been working with WordPress development for over seven years.

Does a website design and development project really need to be filled with trials, tribulations, and ongoing angst? Can the process ever go smoothly and within the expectations set prior to money changing hands?

Yes it can, but these successes are never the stories we hear about.

Styling broken <img> elements

"Because the [<img>] element is controlled by an external source, the :before and :after pseudo-elements typically shouldn’t work with it. However, when the image is broken and not loaded, these pseudo-elements can appear."

Styling broken images: bit.ly/1Udyhtw - handy tips. Seems like a useful pattern for dealing with offline / poor connectivity cases.

Moving the Block
"Good software isn't magically conjured by superhuman geniuses, or cruelly constructed in endless, sadistic death marches by coding slaves. Good software is built by regular developers using a daily regimen of hard work and careful planning."

A pretty inspiring post from Jeff Atwood. It's not a new post,  but still relavant to anyone undertaking a software development project. Or any kind a project really.

Worth a look if you use front-end frameworks and care about accessibility.
