I’ve decided to simplify the website’s source. I went from 20 SCSS files to one. My goal is to serve no cruft. I’ve gone through all superfluous classes (bye bye clearfix). The grid is gone in favour of flex.
I’ve added my GitHub page to social links and changed the icons to SVG.
Next step is moving Gulf to GitHub, getting rid of jQuery and finally; writing.
I wonder if the people who complain about the Monument Valley in app purchase
also think that paying $30 for a Starcraft 2 expansion is preposterous. After
all, they’ve paid 60 bucks already, no?
Maybe sequels to movies should be free too while we are at it.
This has been in Rennes for some while now. One has to wonder what this
particular person’s feud with Google is to express their hate like this.
In any case, it is quite an impressive feat.
So I have fixed the atom feed. Hopefully.
So I have jumped on the bandwagon and decided to generate my website
statically. For you, it basically means that the site will be a lot
faster. For me, I can finally write stuff in markdown only and not worry that
some web-editor will butcher it.
Also, the search field has disappeared, but I am looking for a different
option. Either Google custom search or Bing. I will see.
Long story short:
If you want to use Google Chrome on Windows, uninstall AVG
Update to a newer theme is now complete. Fonts should be nicer and faster on
Apple hardware or anywhere with Helvetica Neue and Avenir installed. I have
removed the web fonts as they were slowing down the site for no reason.
The mobile theme now works with Disqus. I have not figured out why it did not
work in the previous one.
Code snippets are handled by highlight.js instead of the Syntax
Highlighter. Code snippets also fit into their pre-defined frames and bounce on
The “big” news is addition of my Instagram profile to the sidebar. Please go
take a look, I promise not to post photos of my face or shoes. Cannot guarantee
the amount of food pictures though.
I have several articles in the pipes. I will try to post more often.
It is 2014 and the old theme was derived from an old TwenyTen Wordpress theme. Time has come to update it to more modern technology and fix a nasty bug where Disqus would not load the mobile version on phones.
See you soon.
A bit of googling shows that the old version of the Notes.app will not work in Mavericks. But luckily one quickly finds out that the Resources folder is quite resourceful.
Namely there are two files that are interesting:
/Applications/Notes.app/Contents/Resources there is a file named
paper.tiff which looks like this:
Yup, this is the ugly texture under the text. Small change to it and we have something looking like a post-it already. Now, this method is not new and plenty has been written about it.
The other change is to change the default fonts, once again in
/Applications/Notes.app/Contents/Resources/en.lproj there is a file called DefaultFonts.plist and it is quite straightforward. I am a huge fan of TektonPro for notes so I put in
And ‘lo my new Notes.app look:
I’ve made a quick mod to patch the files. You can grab it here:
Mod for Notes.app v1
It seems that this message is randomly appearing for quite some people. It did for me when I updated to the iOS 7.0.3.
There are several solutions available on the internet including:
Backup to iTunes Do factory reset Restore from Backup Re-install applications from appstore
Although this will probably work for everybody it is not the best of the solutions.
For me disabling iCloud Keychain was sufficient, hopefully it will be fixed soon.
