• Font Awesome as a SASS mixin library

    Here is a fun little project I did a while ago. What if you wanted to use only a small subset of Font Awesome instead of the whole thing? And tidy up your HTML classes while you are at it?

  • List of pygments lexer aliases

    I didn’t have a list of pygments lexers and their aliases to use with Jekyll, so I made one. This is current for pygments 1.6 and should hopefully be parsable as YAML.

  • [Seeing the FOSS] Using processing's rxtx with Arduino on Linux

    Ok, let me state up front: Trying to get Processing to read your Arduino on linux (ones that get the /dev/ttyACM0 port) is broken! For all the good work all the devs are doing, this has been the case for far too long.

  • [Seeing the FOSS] Geeking out over NASA mp3s

    Yesterday NASA published a collection of sounds from historic spaceflights and current missions. I noticed there was no ‘download ALL’ button there, and because most links at a time were hidden by means of javascript my normal tools didn’t really work. It was time for some scripting!
