Courier Prime is Free

I love me some free fonts. And I don't care if it's made for screenplays. 🙂

How Apple Sets Prices

This Macworld article was interesting, though long-time Apple folks knew most of it. In short: there's simply very little margin for discounting on Apple products. The company supplements its tiny wholesale discounts to resellers with more substantial monetary incentives that are available only if those resellers advertise its products at or above a certain price, […]

Aaron Swartz, RIP

I believe I met Aaron at WWDC in 2001 at a lunch table with my friend John, though it may have been 2000. He was about 14 at the time, if the fuzzy math is correct, and now he's 26 and dead, having committed suicide under the pressure of the U.S. Government's case against him […]

Child of the 90s

I won't be using Internet Explorer any time soon, but the ad was fun.

Paris Worth a Gram?

Is Paris worth a mass? Interesting article. It's always amused me that our official "things" are oftentimes actual units. Some have been changed over the years to be things that you can measure, but many - like the kilogram - are actual weights sitting there somewhere. And yet, it's gained weight. Or lost it. No […]

Elaine King has Good Tips

Some good disc golf tips by Elaine King.

Entertainment Ecosystems

Interesting. And yes, a bit of filler. 🙂

The Riddle of the Gun

Here's a good article on gun control. Fantasists and zealots can be found on both sides of the debate over guns in America. On the one hand, many gun-rights advocates reject even the most sensible restrictions on the sale of weapons to the public. On the other, proponents of stricter gun laws often seem unable […]

Retina Quality Favicons

From John Gruber: Old (non-retina) favicons are 16 × 16 px; a retina favicon is thus 32 × 32 px. The lazy way to support retina is to replace your old 16 px favicon.ico file with a 32 px file, and allow non-retina browsers to scale the image. The proper solution, however, is to create a single favicon.ico file […]

I'd like to order a few (three or four?) small posters online. What's the best place to do so? 18 x 24" or so. Five 18 x 24" color posters (mounted to foam boards) from the FedEx/Kinko's is $179.

Resolutions

Funny. But then again xkcd almost always is.

I still have no idea why anyone would want to run more than about ten miles or so, but this article about the 100-mile punishing Leadville Ultramarathon (and it's not punishing because it's 100 miles - that's the least of it!) is worth a read.

I wonder if he could sue.

Fringe Ends in January

Bah. I suppose I knew this was coming, I think I'd read about it, but dangit - it's one of the best Sci-Fi shows since the X-Files (and by that I mean the X-Files before that series turned to poo).
