Calc(100% - 20px) is a pretty cool css feature that we can finally start using at work now that we don't support IE8. I've had to use it a couple of times in the last couple of weeks for some stuff I am working on. It lets an element span 100% of the width of the page minus a specific number of pixels in case you have an icon or something to the left of the element kind of like the icon on this coments test module I am working on using Angular. There is an issue when using calc and plus as in
calc(100% + 20%) when compressing your code with Y UI where the spaces are removed from the calculation and the element is never able to meet the 100% requirement. The spaces are required. After doing some research, the guys working on the issue found the issue found the way to fix the issue is to do the subtraction and then make the pixels a negative number like
calc(100% - - 20px). I haven't had a need to add to the percentage but they did so good to know if I ever do need to do that.

Took the truck in for service today. The dealership doesn't do car washes anymore. I remember when I use to get up every Saturday and wash the Z. I don't do that anymore. The Z was a lot smaller than the truck though. Who am I kidding? I spend too much time on the computer.

Sweet! Nitro Circus has posted extended highlights from the Nitro World Games. Click here to check them out! This is actually just a shameless plug to fix the video player module that stopped loading with one of the last updates. Also updated the modal to use the same color as the site header.
