Do you have any sites or feeds that you’d care to share? Tips on finding apps on sale?
It’s also nice they gave attribution on the official site. I’d not heard of the project before, seems like a young project that is a fork of another CMS project, but their site describes the project as something akin to Habari.
At least they didn’t just hotlink to the image in my post.
The first, Firefinder, is a handy tool to “find HTML elements matching chosen CSS selector(s) or XPath expression”.
The second is one that Google previously used internally. Today they open sourced it and released, Page Speed. Page Speed allows developers to “evaluate the performance of their web pages and to get suggestions on how to improve them.”
The suite includes a configurable grid overlay, a ruler overlay, a measurement tool to determine distance between two points, and a cursor crosshair tool (I’ve not found how to use this one effectively, but it could be useful for figuring placement when using position: absolute).
The app basically allows you to take a pic, use your finger to crop the image to just highlight the text, and then it uploads the font to their server. It then does what the web app does, compares the image with some kind of OCR and has you confirm that the corresponding characters are correct. Once you approve the recognition, it returns the font(s).
Pretty nifty little app if you ask me.
Hat tip to Inman
So it’s no surprise that I’m stoked to see that there is a game for the iPhone heavily influenced by said handheld, and it’s free this weekend to boot. TouchGrove is offering their version based on the game, (oh yeah, there was a sequel that was kick butt) until February 2. Normally only $0.99, this seems like a great marketing plan, as they offer several other games based on similar hand held devices. For instance I wouldn’t have known that they are working on a baseball game based on a similar handheld which I totally will buy!

All in all, there are over 500 free tracks, though at quick glance, the bulk of the list are lesser known artists.
And from reading the article, it sounds like the mayor and her attorney are taking pages right out of the Clay Davis/Clarence Royce playbook.
Man, that was a great show, I really look forward to another project from Simon.
I’ll admit color and color theory aren’t my strong suit, I tend to rely on Color Schemer Studio and sites like COLOURlovers. I did put together this palatte based on mimosa.
We’re still learning to walk, and we’re going to trip every now and then and sometimes when we run, we’re going to fall on our faces. But as long as we get up, try again, and learn something from the experience, in the end, skinned knees and all, it’ll be worth it.
edit – might I add, I’m in a new-ish romantic relationship, which very recently hit a bump, and perhaps this analogy hit home there more than anywhere.
Still, it’s nice to be able at a glance check your dashboard, or see a little growl notice pop up.
Finally, I found a reference to inserting the Leopard DVD while in Windows. I tried this and when I did, the BootCamp driver installer came up and installed my drivers. Perfect; why couldn’t VMWare say something about this on their website?
Thanks Scott and I agree, why isn’t this documented somewhere.
Edit 8/1/08Seems you also have to disconnect the USB Bluetooth Host Controller to get it to work. Something about only one OS can control the device at a time, so the machine gets confused when the two are both connected. Disconnecting the controller, shutting down the XP install, then restarting VMware Fusion finally got it working.
*editStill issues, so feedburner is deactive for now.
