    Instantly reminded me of this great article. Explaining Graphic Design to Four-Year-Olds

    The majority of the hate mail here seems to float toward the voting button placement, because titles are more important, blah...blah...blah. Everyone is repeating the textbook crap, and yes, a detour for your eyes may put strain on them at times during, but I know damn well I'm not the only one who uses those votes to keep my ADHD in check.

    If someone can make it so I don't have to read a title to know I should read the article then good golly Miss Molly, please do not stand in the way. That there is what we like to call a good user experience.

    In fact, I would argue that the vote count is a more valuable piece of content than the title itself and, aside from the misalignment noted above, should not be changed at all.

    OK cool. I'm a little crazy so I'll play too.

    When using an adjective as a noun, it doesn't make it a noun. It simply omits the noun it's modifying.

    • I'll give you this one. Even if "egg" wasn't omitted, it would only become an adjective of "white", which would remain a noun.
    • Omitting "area" or "sclera"
    • Omitting "chess piece"
    • Omitting "clothes" (therefore pluralizing the adjective to "whites"/"darks")
    • Omitting "wine"

    Only one of the five examples held up but unfortunately that's all you needed. It would appear that I was incorrect.Damn it.

  • Posted to Show DN: Create a No-Nonsense Resume, Apr 11, 2015

    Very slick. And just in time for me; I've been putting it off forever. Another competitor you should check out is http://jsonresume.org.

    It's executed a bit differently (you build and run the server and host the JSON-stored resume directly - it's all-inclusive) and doesn't have LinkedIn import abilities, but the array of themes is vast and community-contributable (is that a word?). Since you're getting early feedback I'm betting themes are already on your TODO.

    One more print bug is with the tags/skills boxes: if the layout is arranged so they begin at the bottom of page one and there are enough (in my case four rows because I'm excessive), they will span to the next page but get cut off in the page one bottom and page two top margins.

    Great work! Thanks for sharing with us.

    This has the early makings of a promising logo I'd say.

    Pretty sure that's an adjective.

    Hey Chris,

    Aside from prepping your code at times, other times not, and sometimes creating a slideshow, you seem to essentially improv everything in your videos which gives them a sort of genuine comfort. How much script (if any) do you have written for them?

    PS - when is #137 coming???

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry if this is unconstructive and useless but...I freakin LOVE the hexclock. Creative and entertaining.

    Gonna port this to a lock-screen on my Note.
