  1. Bulma: Free, open source, and modern CSS framework based on Flexbox

    One of those “I’ll forget the name if I don’t bookmark it” things. Looks nice, as these things go. (via Infovore)

  2. Said the Gramophone: CUE SYNTHESIZER

    “I thought I could handle repetition. I thought I flourished in repetition. Scheduled days, habit. But tonight these groundhog days are wearing me out.”

  3. JustWatch - The Streaming Guide

    I keep forgetting the URL of this site I occasionally use to check that the TV show I want to watch is only available on platforms I don’t have. So, bookmarking it.

    @jonheslop @iangambier Good to hear! They did repaint the curtains a few years ago, although roughly the same. Here’s a photo from before flickr.com/photos/davidwp…

    @tominsam @feedbin Yeah, there’s that, but I don’t get the sense that’s what must people mean when they go “I still miss Google Reader”. On the plus side, you’re unlikely to get bitten again!

    @AKMA @johndodds My pleasure! I'm glad it's useful.

    Yeah, I was sad when Google Reader closed. But if you're *still* all "I miss Google Reader!" and you don't use one of the alternatives, then I guess you weren't really that bothered about using a feed reader. Which is a shame, because they're great.
    I ❤️ @feedbin.

    Thus removing a monopoly and ushering in a golden age of feed readers, with more features than Reader. Now there's plenty of choice of readers. Websites and apps. Open source or commercial, supported by payments rather than the whims of Google. A day of celebration. twitter.com/QuinnyPig/stat…

    I’m way happier with @feedbinapp + @reederapp than I ever was with Google Reader.

    Likewise, Spotify and Apple Music are as solid IMO as Rdio was when it closed.

    Not sure why folks keep mourning these products years later. twitter.com/philgyford/sta…

    Just had a 100% definitely real conversation with a British couple who have a holiday home near us. They were grotesque caricatures of my political opponents and they told me things that confirm all of my existing political opinions.
