Erik Spiekermann reminiscing about Letraset rub downs. We had them around the house when I was growing up. They’re one of the main reasons for my fascination with typography. Apparently they weren’t toys, but I could never resist playing with them.
You Work For Them zine. The first issue, images created using samples from their stock collection.
50 Ways to Help the Planet, small changes you can make to your routine that will reap dividends for the environment.
The Rather Difficult Font Game. I only scored 30/34, I blame the wee morning hours. At least my education has proven useful for something.
There’s a new version of flickrRSS available for download now. In short, the interface has been updated for WordPress 2.5 and you can display set and favourite feeds.
A longer list of the changes that have been made. If you’re really interested, you can check out the exact changes via trac.
- Revamped interface for WordPress 2.5
- Support for sets and favourites (RSS limits to last 20 items)
- Added set_id to arguments list (in 8th position)
- Added place for code before and after images in the widget
- Changed $userid to $id_number to reflect ability to use group ids
- Naming consistency in source
- Settings panel now uses one button to save instead of two
- Brought back html readme, easier on the eyes
- Tested to make sure it works with video
I also released flickrRSS 3.5 for older versions of WordPress, it just adds support for sets and favourites. One caveat, it hasn’t been thoroughly tested. If you’re having any problems with either version drop a note in the forum.

San Seriffe, typographic humour from The Guardian. I’d love to see the full spread at a higher resolution.
