Looking up and down while spinning left and right

I have had this “Trippy spinning optical illusion” (found at the always interesting kottke.org open in a browser window since I found it on Feb. 1, 2016. From kottke.org: Somehow, this woman seems to be spinning both clockwise and counter-clockwise simultaneously. This is worse than the spinning ballerina. Anyone know who did this?

Trading Places

My wife and I swapped iPads. She had an iPad 2. I had an iPad mini. Same hardware, different sizes. I didn’t use the mini much because it was too small to enjoy some of the work (and play) I enjoy. She used the larger iPad constantly, but found it hard to tote around. Now, […]

Site Logo Idea

Playing with letters and came up with a potential logo for this site. It’s a little bit Cthulu and a little bit the blog previously known as CaSt.

Father's Day Sentiment

Juan Thompson, on his father Hunter S. Thompson: I am proud of this man.

Ultimately, I love and respect him because he really lives. […]

Old Claim Chowder

After I decided to change from Movable Type to WordPress I stopped following development to focus on my current content management system. I’m a year behind on MT news from Six Apart, but check out this claim chowder. First, there’s this: “As of today, and forever forward, Movable Type is open source.” Anil Dash, December […]
