A basic CSS Grid layout with a few lines of SASS.

I’ve found rolling my own ‘Grids’ layout a much better option than using a framework. I’ve refined it down to this small bit of SCSS.

  @for $i from 1 through 12 {
    .grid-#{$i} {
      width: 100% / 12 * $i;
      float: left;
  clear: both

Then in your markup just define how many of the 12 grids you want the column to take up.

<div class="row">
    <div class="grid-6">Column A</div>
    <div class="grid-6">Column B</div>
<div class="row">
    <div class="grid-4">Column A</div>
    <div class="grid-4">Column B</div>
    <div class="grid-4">Column C</div>
<div class="row">
    <div class="grid-8">Column B</div>
    <div class="grid-4">Column C</div>

Chrome 38 Introduces a Responsive Design View

Chrome 38 has introduced a responsive design view in Chrome Developer tools. It allows you to view the available breakpoints for the loaded site. Clicking each of the bars resizes the window to the specified breakpoint or selecting the device will resize the window to that devices resolution.

As well as User Agent spoofing It also introduces network throttling to produce near real device simulations for development.

Chrome version 38 is available in Chrome Canary build.


Cumberland Psychiatric Hospital


Cumberland Hospital is a public psychiatric hospital located in Westmead, in Sydney’s west. Along with Bungarribee House, Blacktown Hospital it serves the mental health needs of Western Sydney. As a public hospital it is part of Sydney West Area Health Service (SWAHS).

The site was formally the residence of female convicts. Female convicts were housed separately from the male population. In 1817 Governor Macquarie commissioned the building of more permanent structures. Female convicts housed on this site were made to work and the site became known as The Female Factory. The Factory housed unassigned, unmarried female convicts, and their children.

Although transportation of convicts to New South Wales ceased in 1840 the site was maintained as a place for female convicts until 1847.

In 1849 the buildings were redesignated a Lunatic Asylum. The site has remained as a mental health institution to the present day, only taking on its current name in 1983.

In the late 19th century it was the home of inmate William Cresswell, proposed as a candidate in the Tichborne case, who died there in 1904.
