Assembling a new table from ikea. It gives me or anyone more than a new table but the feeling of great productivity. I just built a table.

I could really use this: Patterno (maybe you can too.)


Here’s a competition to win a copy of this pattern generation tool at Appstorm.com:

As well as sponsoring the site this week, Patterno have kindly agreed to offer ten free licenses to a handful of Mac.AppStorm readers.

This unique app is a tiled pattern and background image generator for Mac OS X, and can be a huge time-saver for graphic designers everywhere. Patterno allows to create various images that you may use to design your site, Twitter, MySpace or just to create a new wallpaper for your desktop!

Wish me luck.

One approach seeks merely to refresh, the other aims to fully reposition and may or may not include a full refresh. (Note that by “reposition,” I mean strategy and not physical location or dimensions.)

My Name is Y… the Y

New YMCA logo compared to its current version.

The Y’s new visual system reflects our true identity: a caring, people-oriented organization that is devoted to the cause of strengthening communities. Our refreshed logo, for instance, is bold, active and welcoming, suggesting our determined commitment to social progress. Plus, the many colors reflect the vibrancy and diversity of our communities and activities.

No matter how you feel about the new logo design for the YMCA, I think its a terrific organization. In fact, just this week I started swimming at my local Y at 5am three days/week.

A Coder’s Guide to Coffee

Cup of espresso

As most software and creative professionals know, coffee is an important technology for boosting mental acuity and maintaining peak on-the-job performance.

Most specialty coffee places have been Starbucks-ized, serving over-sweetened, over-sized, poor excuses for coffee drinks. There are exceptions of course, Peets comes to mind. I believe the best places to find quality coffee (outside of Italy) are your local coffee roasters. Here in Birmingham we are fortunate to have Primavera Coffee Roasters “the best coffee east of Portland, OR”.
