Slight issue with Global Settings in the Play Framework combined with Subcut.

Okay - that's just frickin' cool.
 
Best commercial for a robotics company ever. I wonder if Andy Rubin is gearing up the M&A terms. :)

It would be nice to see at least some of it in real time.

This is beautiful, thank you for sharing this - it's truly inspirational.  Beautiful music also.

At my daughter's commencement:promotion event. It was an interesting experience, there was really no analogue in my own experience in the UK.

When so many people advocate TDD, why the hell aren't books more TDD?  I can read how to create a bloody controller for Play, but documentation on how to test a moderately complex controller is totally absent.  Google is failing me on this one so far today!  If a book introduces a concept, it should also introduce how to test it.

I've been learning with the speedball nibs, and they don't seem to function on end or partially pressed like this nib does.  I can't seem to get any flow from the edges at all.  Is it my ink, technique, or are the Brause nibs just better?

When doing long, straight hairlines, you can do it using the nib edge perpendicular. Often, when dragging out the curved hairlines, you aren't actually using the corner of the nib like a pen, what you're doing is dragging some of the wet ink from the bolder stroke. Every broad nib family has its quirks (Mitchell flexible but can be hard to start, Brause firm but quite oblique, Speedball smooth but thicker hairlines, etc.) -- that's what practice is for. Of course, you can always finish with a pointed pen like Hamid does here with what looks like a blue pumpkin (don't quote me on that).

This does not apply to using the Pilot Parallel, which will draw using the corner.

On mapping then reducing over folding badly.  I've been guilty of this in the past, particularly when in a hurry.  Think functional not procedural!
