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.

Anybody out there have a standing desk? I'm about ready to build one and am curious to hear your thoughts. Also how much do you actually stand at it? Idk that I buy into supposed health benefits because you're not really moving just standing in place but I wonder if it will fill that need I feel to get up every hour or so. If so then maybe it'll help keep me at my desk and working instead of walking away and getting distracted.

Tried latte art with a hot chocolate tonight. Didn't turn out too bad for a first attempt and the hot chocolate is really tasty. I'm excited because this means I can practice more latte art without over caffeinating the entire house.

Me: What should I be doing instead of files?

Computer: Glad you asked! It's 2020. You should be spinning up a Kubernetes of Dockers on your public cloud each of which is a Github which send JSON messages over HTTP3 to the microservice host on your Virtualbox private cloud which is running a whole bunch more Dockers each of which is a Node.js which is pulling dependencies from

Me: files seemed a bit simpler than that

Computer: WELL WE HAD A VOTE AND YOU WEREN'T THERE AND WE SAID FILES SUCK.

Finally got around to writing a new blog post. This one is a short one about how I'm working around a bug in Webkit. Check it out.

Unified window has landed in libhandy master, so now it's possible for apps to do things like overlaying content with titlebar or hiding it without glitches. Also, round bottom corners :)

I see so many saying they've suddenly gotten a lot of time for hobbies, etc. since they have to stay at home. For me, it's the exact opposite. I have three kids, and would normally go to the university, work on projects and stuff for 6-8 hours in relative peace (with members of the group) and then go home to cook dinner and enjoy time with the family. Then I'd have the evening for hobbies...

Oh and the coffee is a single estate Nicaraguan coffee that I roasted at home.

It's nowhere near the center of the cup but I'm extremely happy with this rippled heart I got. It's the first thing I've been able to pull off that I would call latte art. Now that I know I can do this I just gotta keep practicing 💪☕

I'm sad to be leaving Denver but I'm glad to be going back home. I miss my little dude. It's been really fun here and the mountains are gorgeous!

Tonight is one of those nights when I lay down and remember every wrong thing I've ever said or done. Every situation I've made awkward. Every time I've messed up. I have to wake up at 5:30am to catch a flight I can't afford to stare at the ceiling all night.

How do you use icons on the web? What kind of icons are you using? SVG or icon font? Sprite sheet or direct embed? Or are you doing something else? I may or may not be working on an icon project and am looking for ideas of what I should have for the first release.

How many icons would you expect in a small new web icons project?

The problem with it going from white to black at 0 opacity is that it gets grey-ish in the middle instead of white fading off to nothing.
