  1. 9 lazy portfolios for UK investors

    It’s annoyingly rare to come across UK-specific guidelines for portfolios, so this up-to-date set of examples is handy.

  2. Sneak peek of Macaw - The code-savvy web design tool

    Actually looks quite good. Jump to the end to see the finished page in-browser, and the HTML and CSS. (via @jamesweiner)

  3. Hugosslade/smackmyglitchupjs

    JavaScript for glitching a jpg, no fancy interface.

    @danhon It was only good compared to how bad it could have been. But I’m going to sleep rather than getting into an argument. x

    @whoisdanw I didn’t hate it, but I’m a bit bemused W Gibson thought it was so good he keeps going on and on about it.

    @antimega Thr BBC seems genetically incapable of dealing with non-BBC1 comedies sensibly. I’m enjoying Count Arthur Strong though.

    @nickludlam Yeah, but it’s mainly the large nest of interdependent packages that worry me, over the long term.

    I’m enjoying tinkering with Node again. But it feels like the solution to every problem is “install this package!”, which makes me uneasy.

    @jah Nice! I’ll give that a try - I’ve also been spending time on my (new) piano, and none on games.

    @RellyAB @wonderlandblog (Although it looks like it’s Euro 2013 that’s on at the moment, not World Cup. Whatever :) )

    FIFA have a fifa.com/womensworldcup/ but fifa.com/mensworldcup/ 404s. Huh, maybe there isn’t a men’s World Cup? Poor dears.

    @RellyAB @wonderlandblog I assume the 2014 football event in Brazil will be called “The Men’s World Cup”.

    @tomstuart Also, there was just no tension any more, since they got married and had kids and… oh, no, confused, sorry.

    @tomstuart Also, I kind of want an 18 certificate version where some humans are actually killed.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomstuart I think I felt the same. Kind of, “Yes sir, I sure am impressed by the size and volume, well done!”

    Site is fine and seems to be reachable from Europe. Best workaround right now is to go to Europe
