  1. Shapecatcher: Draw the Unicode character you want!

    Draw a shape and it tries to guess the Unicode character. It’s fun to draw a squiggle and find odd characters. Cow Face! (via Cal)

  2. Cyberdelia/django-pipeline

    Good-looking thing for compressing and concatenating CSS and JavaScript files with Django. Good documentation, handles LESS, SASS, CoffeeScript etc. Nice.

    @secretbean I think you might be getting a bit over-excited...

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Zoonie Yeah, it all seemed a lot of fun at first, then got all Meaningful. ("Basil"?)

    @secretbean I should know who that is, shouldn't I? I'm plainly a lost cause!

    @phl I'm sure it will. But it also just seems like the default, unthinking choice for music, which is a shame.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @phl No, because they're already old-fashioned in the early 21st century, so seem even more bizarre sound tracking the 23rd.

    Isn't it odd when the soundtrack music on a film set two centuries in the future is performed on string, brass and woodwind instruments.

    @secretbean I don't have the DVD. It's OK. I think I just have a low tolerance for aliens and interplanetary warfare in SF.

    @spaceboy Sounds like a flawless plan!

    @spaceboy Hmm, I was swayed by Scottish political tendencies over the English, but yes, weather may be more important. Where to then?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Watching the recent Star Trek movie for the first time. Was enjoying it a lot until Romulans Vulcan Spock blah blah blah who cares.

    @spaceboy Maybe we could give England to the Americans, and we can all move to Scotland?

    @tomcoates Ha, I have the opposite problem with Echofon - iOS versions show at replies for a user, OSX version doesn’t. Maddening.

    @hiutdenim They could at least spell your name right. Also, there shouldn’t be a space in “HistoryTag”. #mrpicky

    @moleitau I plot the route on mapmywalk.com afterwards. bit.ly/xlTq6e I am also open to better, free, weightless solutions :)

    Ran my first 5k earlier. Possibly ever, or possibly just the first since five years ago. Still alive.
