Happy Friday again!  Here are more random, useful links I’ve come across over the last week.


Typ.io – nifty little tool for picking complimentary fonts!

Just Say No to Justification – Design for Hackers author David Kadavy talks about why justification works in some mediums, but also illustrates why you shouldn’t use it on the web.

React.js – JavaScript isn’t going away.  And the proliferation of tools to help you create JS apps isn’t slowing down.  Facebook’s React.js is another one you should look at…

Three Feet from Gold – This is a great book that made me seriously re-evaluate how I view successful people.  If you are a frequent commuter like me, the Audible rendition is very enjoyable.

System.Web.Optimization.Less – It is 2014.  LESS should be everywhere.  Unfortunately, the LESS story for ASP.NET MVC is pretty terrible.  This package makes it a little better, but be warned, because it uses dotLess, many newer LESS features won’t work correctly.

C# 6.0 Pattern Matching – It took me a while to grok this new feature, but now that I understand it, I can see how it will be useful.

PowerSploit – You can do all sorts of cool things with PowerShell and this library, such as injecting DLLs into the process space of other processes, even on remote machines. Smile 

Nokia Lumina 635 for $100?! – I’m really tempted to try a Windows Phone at this price point.  But not tempted enough to give up my Nexus 5.  Yet.
