  • Best Theme Ever

    It looks soooooo good in Safari, Chrome and Firefox the Theme Garden just exploded. Even Mobile Safari is getting in on it (i.e. check it out on your iPhone, too, if you can).

    You’ll be able to purchase it on the cheap pretty soon.

  • From Tumblr's Staff Blog in 2008, "Getting ready for big updates"

    staff:

    The most noticeable improvements:

    • The new engine is scoped, so you’ll be able to nest and repeat blocks and variables.
    • The engine uses a new token parser that will support special syntax for API hooks. This will let your theme call back for content, like:
      {​block:Posts type="photo" tagged="spotlight" count="5"}
          <img src="{​PhotoURL width="200"}" />
      {/block:Posts}

    Umm…. whatever happened to this? This is not a thing.

  • Web Designers Make Way Too Much Money

    In my mind, I cannot justify the money there is in designing web sites. Even designing web sites well. I mean, $999 for a Tumblr theme. Come on! No offense to Tumblr, but the engine is fucking cake to learn. I mean one measly day. Done.

    I bet you they markup their services 300-400%. That’s a croc. When I’m estimating the cost to frame a fucking four-story building, I can, at best, go up to 10%. That 10% comes after I’ve paid material and labor taxes, paid employees and bought materials. On a job that might take 3 months to finish, and cost $50,000 to complete, I might, if everything goes right, make the company $5,000.

    That’s $1,666 dollars a month. That’s before income tax. And I do it by hand. With a pencil and a highlighter. And I have to use a PC when I’m done with that.

    Adobe Creative Suite is a one time $800 dollar purchase per computer. And you know what…. you can steal it if you want to. And there is no ISOHunt for architectural drawings. Those things cost $25-$175 per project.

    Web design my ass. All your fucking sites look the exact same. Do you pay yourself $200 dollars an hour, because that’s about how much you would have to so you could make $999 dollars designing a tumblr theme.

    Sorry, but I just found this and it made me feel like I should report it to the guys who just convicted Bernie Madoff. You’re getting screwed.

Panic is having a 3-day, 50% off everything sale. If you need an FTP client for Mac, now’s the time.
I was literally a click away from buying Coda and Transmit yesterday. I&#8217;m getting sick and tired of Expresso bugging out on me.

  • I thought Firefox was a pretty good browser, but look what it does to this picture (.png).
Firefox is being relegated to streaming Netflix movies&#8230; for now.
