    Hi, I had the same issue and traced it back to my craft plugin. Try disabling this and see if the leak goes. Once I updated to the latest version of Craft it was fine again.

  • Posted to Why I built another Personal Finance App, Nov 21, 2016

    I don't mean to be rude or ruin your high, I know branding and digital product development is a difficult place to stand out. But are you sure "Titmice" is a good name for a personal finance app? Sounds a bit like a hilarious reference to the small animal and a ladies chest to me. To make matters worse one of your first screenshots refers to a "chest"! Is this for real? Might want to consider the connotations of the language you use.

  • Posted to InVision — Inspect: Pixel-perfect design handoffs for your team, Nov 15, 2016

    I've been waiting for this since they previewed a while ago, stayed away from getting too tied to Zeppelin. They must be pissed they've integrated it straight into Invision (which must have about 40-50% of the commercial UI design community wrapped up). Let's hope they build on this with their proposed UI animation tool

    An MVP would usually indicate something that would be viable in the market (in order to achieve a level of success). I would argue that this is not an MVP it's a rushed release or even worse someone's idea that had no basis in reality in the first place (AKA a lie).

    Just goes to show the power of marketing and the ubiquitous nature of bullshit

    Really love the site, the case studies are great and you've shown that you simply can't get away with a few static screenshots on a iPhone or cinema display! I'm interested in how long it took you to create the site and also how long it would take to create a case study?

    I would have to agree with you, working in a team effectively is really hard. Sometimes it's easier to do things yourself but we all know for longevity this is not really the solution. It takes a great person/manager/designer to coach & lead a team. Not just to take control of the whole process in order to maintain their vision.

    I think you're right, bringing together the right team for the project and hiring the right people is a great skill. If you have a team of multiskilled people this makes the job easier sometimes but I still maintain that being clear on your (and others) role is really important. Dan Malls Superfriendly is a great example that this approach works for clients too!
