Creating breadcrumbs in Sharepoint 2013 Document Library Pages and List Views

While doing development on a Sharepoint 2013 enterprise page, I noticed that the theme did not have the breadcrumb option by default on document library pages or list views.

Affordable Care Act Mistakes in their newsletter

Hopefully the White House proof reads the Affordable Care Act better than they do their emails about it…

Apple Earpods survive a washing

Say what you will about Apple’s new earpods. They may not be the best sound you can get, but they certainly  aren’t the worst either.
