Yo, developers making apps for @elementary I just released a new version of my elementary icon templates. If you still need to make an icon or just need to make a better one go check 'em out. This update totally reworks both the vertical and horizontal rectangle icons and fixes smaller things like newer gradient stops and more consistent shadows.

If you're having trouble with your Gmail account in Thunderbird today, it might be due to Google now requiring OAuth 2.0 authentication.

Thunderbird SHOULD transition your account automatically, but if you're not able to connect, try going into your Gmail Account's Server Settings and manually changing "Authentication Method" to OAuth2 (it should NOT be "Normal.")

More information about this change can be found here:

I'm really excited about my last couple patches to land in @thunderbird and even more excited about the next few to come! last week I replaced all the FolderPane icons (that landed in Daily last night) and I'm working on adding a set of default colors to the icons today!

Gonna do a live coding session tomorrow about Thunderbird.
Lots of good stuff I want to show you

Friends of the . Lots of changes coming to the client in the next three months. Would love if you could all grab the Daily or Beta release and let me know thoughts and concerns as you watch the changes roll in.

Go to the bottom of site to choose version:

Feel free to ping me with your experience!

New icons coming to (click the image to see them all). These will be in the new Spaces toolbar and tabs.

You can see them landing in Thunderbird Nightly.

If pixelfed had a iOS & android app I’d probably try using it more. I don’t use instagram a ton anyway so it wouldn’t be that hard to switch but I never use instagram on the web and interact with it strictly from the app. I know some mastodon apps support adding pixelfed instances but I want a more specialized experience and to keep my social networking apps separate.

My first patch to Thunderbird landed today! Got some shiny new icons in the spaces toolbar. And they respect the density setting so they should stay crisp at whatever density you choose.

Some fun life / work / open source news; I’m going to be working as a designer for Mozilla Thunderbird for the next few months. I’m excited to work with such an awesome team and to be apart of shaping the future of Thunderbird!

I posted this on bird site last night and almost forgot to post it here. I wrote my first blog post since October of last year! 😅 This post is about my experience at ‘s as both an attendee and as a speaker.

First time taking apart switches. Trying to lube and film them in preparation for my first custom mechanical keyboard build. This takes a really long time. I hope it’s all worth it in the end. I think it will be. The sound of the lubed vs stock is night and day. Still not fun tho

I got my first dose of the vaccine today and I can’t explain the relief and excitement I feel. Can’t wait to get the second dose. Some semblance of normal feels more attainable to me now than ever.

The blog is back from the dead and a new blog post is out! Check out my post on moving from Android to iOS and what I like and dislike about each of them.

I made a really poor quality slow-mo video of me making a few shots of espresso. Even with the blur caused by the vibrations of the espresso machine and video compression, there's still something mesmerising about watching the espresso flow.
