17530 color-names

The aim of this project is to create as large a list of color names as possible. We’ve merged various lists, modified the names when there were duplicates with different hex values, and shifted the colors a bit when there were identical colors with different names.

Tips for restaurant websites

Here are things I look for on a restaurant’s website:

  1. Restaurant name. If there’s multiple locations please reflect that in the name e.g. The Red Butterfly, Whitstable.
  2. Opening hours.
  3. Address. Please link to the address in a web mapping service so it’ll launch the native mapping app on my device.
  4. Telephone number. Please link to the telephone number so it’ll launch the native telephone app on my device.
  5. Menu. Dated, with prices.

Of note, all of the above can fit on one web page.

Endurance Test, Circa 1958

During the months of December 1958 and January and February 1959, two young men flew a mission-modified Cessna 172 around and around over the desert Southwest for 64 days, 22 hours, and 19 minutes. The world endurance record in a propeller-driven airplane was set in that little Cessna almost 50 years ago.

CARROT Weather

CARROT Weather is a crazy-powerful weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecasts. From spooky fog to torrential downpours, CARROT’s dialogue, characters, and scenery change in… “unexpected” ways. You’ve never had this much fun checking the weather.

Oh God Not This Again

In a nutshell: judging RSS itself because RSS readers are not mainstream is to miss everything that RSS does. And judging RSS readers for not being mainstream is to judge them against expectations set by some hype artists more than a decade ago — but not by me or anybody else actually doing the work.

Private by Default

I want Feedbin to be the opposite of Big Social. I think people should have the right not to be tracked on the Internet and Feedbin can help facilitate that.
