Pushing the Hi-Res Envelope
Curious bit to me, at first, I glossed over the discussion because, I didn’t see it as a point, either way.

However, there are few details, tasks, not so much web management, but certain tweaks, as well has heavy lifting, just has to be done by the laptop. The new laptop with Retina display.
On my own sites, I don’t carry a web developer graphics program or files when I travel, but the place holders, badges, and graphical pieces looked dingy, frayed around the edges against the sharp backdrop of the crisp typography.
Retina display. And my sites weren’t optimized entirely for Retina Display graphics.
Back to the drawing board.
What is disruptive, ordinary graphics raster up OK, but high-res looks clear, clean and crisp.
It is a disruptive tech. Cool.
As I’ve switched stuff to the new servers, the new hardware and backend now supports the “retina” display. Took some fiddling, but I lie the new look. Rolled up some fresh icons for the main site, as well as here.
The age of the Internet.
