Layered Fonts with CSS and JavaScript
The established ways of using layered fonts on the Web all have problems, so I tried to come up with something new. Layered fonts are typefaces designed to be overprinted, so that you get a colour effect. Here's an example from Tom Chalky’s Rivina font fami...

People from US or Canada in particular might like this dashcam video of driving along the main road in the Isle of Skye in Scotland, UK. :-) For those of us (from any country) who have been there, it's also a fun reminder. There are several videos in the series and some feature sheep.
I bought a dash cam before my trip to Isle of Skye last week. Here's one of the videos. It shows the road from Portree to Old Man of Storr.
Feel free to subscribe to the channel if you like videos like that ;-)

An interesting aspect of clear-cut logging followed by patchy regrowth turns out to be a change in the balance of wildlife the forest can support.

The sK1 team published Python bindings for LittleCMS v2. Your Python apps can do color management now.

+Patrick David has put a lot of work into his +pixls.us community and into GIMP and other open source and libre software so it's a lot of fun to see his fabulous tutorial getting more.. er... exposure.
The GIMP-focused Open Source Portrait tutorial by +Patrick David was recently featured in The Royal Photographic Society Journal, one of the oldest photography magazines in the world (est. 1853).
