Create a HTML canvas animation with 140 characters. I love this.
Let the robot choose what semantic tag is right for your HTML5 element.

Are you up for the command line challenge? Solve the tasks … in a single line of bash.
A nifty way to have some fun whilst learning bash commands.
Jenn Schiffer is too funny. And very clever. I just hope I never get punked by one of her satirical posts.
Sketch style guides and well-designed charts can only get you so far, but designers like us still make mistakes. Like…a lot. No seriously…all the time.
So here are 100 [goofy] Excuses for Designers to help you cover your ass next time you make a mistake that you’re too afraid to admit. Results may vary!
A browser-based game on online profiling.
This weirded me out.
Compare size of a page to a compressed image of the same page.
As a totally different approach to measuring web bloat, I like this a lot.
It’s an interesting inversion of what one might (perhaps naïvely?) expect: given that the creator of the format has explicitly said the pronunciation is with a soft G, one might expect that those who use the hard G know it’s incorrect but say it anyway. My personal opinion is that this is actually a reflection of human nature: faced with evidence that undermines our instinctive reactions, we tend to double down.
This debate has been raging for years, and it’s just bonkers. In the past, I’ve been laughed at for using the soft G and I’ve sometimes tried to defend my stance by a) pointing out the creator’s pronunciation, and b) asking how the word “gist” is pronounced. It’s usually at this point that the debate gets even more ridiculous. Again, it’s just bonkers.
All that said, I love that this survey has been conducted!
hangover.sh– another cron-job that is set to specific dates. Sends automated emails like “not feeling well/gonna work from home” etc. Adds a random “reason” from another predefined array of strings. Fires if there are no interactive sessions on the server at 8:45am.
Haha, I love these.
I love me some particles.
