Ibarra Real Fonts
In 2007, The Calcografía Nacional Española organized a project directed by José María Ribagorda with the objective of divulging the invaluable typographic heritage produced in Spain in the 18th century through the "Imprenta Real".

This project included the recovery of the types designed by Geronimo Gil for the edition of the most beautiful "Quixote" never edited, printed by Joaquín Ibarra for the “Real Academia de la Lengua” in 1780. This font was called “Ibarra Real”.

José María Ribagorda decided in 2015 that Octavio Pardo would be the first collaborator to play the design. Octavio was the first student of the University of Reading MA Typeface Design program to study this project.

The Ornaments made by celebrated Latin American and Spanish designers would not be included until their authors allow them to be distributed under the SIL Open Source License.

O.L.D. (Over-Locknut Dimension)
O.L.D. stands for Over-Locknut Dimension. This is the width of the hub measured from outside of locknut to outside of locknut. It is not to be confused with the axle length, as the axle extends into or beyond the frame dropouts. The O.L.D. needs to match the available space in the frame between the fork or frame tips. Rear hubs vary in width (but most new ones are 130mm for road or 135mm for mountain). The hub width (over-locknut dimension) needs to match the space between the rear wheel dropouts in the frame in order for things to line up as they should.

RSS the least wrong way
I decided the best way to find out which practices were safe would be to check very popular feeds and see what they did. If something doesn’t work for a significant portion of the web population, I assume these people will have heard about it and taken corrective action. To that end, I conducted an unscientific survey of feeds published by popular blogging platforms and notable citizens of the web. I checked only the feeds made available by autodiscovery.

Windows 10 icons. Where are they located? In which files and folders?
Whether you want to change the default icon of a certain folder or the icon of a shortcut you have created, you might wonder where you could find new icons. While there are lots of websites that offer custom made icon sets, you might, however, prefer to use icons that are already found on your Windows 10 computer or device. In this article, we show you where the icons are stored in Windows 10. If you want to find all the default Windows 10 icon files, read on:

Librem 5 phone hands-on—Open source phone shows the cost of being different
Look closer and you'll see that the Librem 5 does not have the usual fit and finish from a seasoned Chinese smartphone builder, though, and there's no shortage of nits to pick. There are uneven glue blobs that have squished out from around the display. The earpiece speaker has some of the display glue on it. The front camera is off-center, and there is uneven, visible glue around that, too. One section of the removable back doesn't connect to the case correctly, so the seam is uneven.

Miles' Flat Bar Trek 520: Little Red Corvette
I’m impressed that the 520 can fit 29 x 2.1″ WTB Nano tires, which work great for a wide mix of riding. I was also able to size up to a 60cm frame, since the flat bar conversion required some extra length, which gives me a massive main triangle to work with.

Switching from Jekyll to Hugo
Additionally, I’m not the biggest fan of the Ruby ecosystem — mostly due to the trouble I seem to have when installing dependencies. I’ve learned to accept Python’s dependency management warts — they’re generally ameliorated by sticking with a single tool and using it as intended. Ruby… I’ve never gotten to behave well. Without fail, I run into some byzantine installation bug with Nokogiri or Bundler when setting up a completely clean environment. I inevitably fall down some rabbit-hole of desperate StackOverflow questions, costing me an afternoon of annoyance.

OK Doomer
What’s the best shooter to play in 2020? Where can gamers find the coolest weapons, the hardest enemies, and the most thrilling challenges? There’s a lot of cool games on the horizon such as Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal, Halo: Infinite, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. But – don’t laugh – the best first person shooter you can play this year is already out and has been out for over 20 years. That’s right. Doom. The 1993 version. And this post is about how you can make the most out of it today – as a modern FPS gamer with no patience for floppy disks and MS-DOS. Let’s start off with the obvious part. Why would I want to play Doom in 2020? What is so great about Doom that still is relevant 27 years after it was first released? Isn’t it just a museum piece? In this post, I will tell you – at least from my parochial perspective – why Doom is a compelling and even dominant experience 20+ years after its initial release, how the actual experience of playing Doom can vary immensely depending on your preference, and how to play Doom on your computer (though in theory you could play Doom using a piano or a toaster if you wanted).

Wikipedia.org: Kathleen Hanna — In popular culture
Hanna unintentionally came up with the name for Nirvana's 1991 breakthrough single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by writing "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on Kurt Cobain's wall. At the time, Cobain was unaware that Hanna was referring to a deodorant marketed specifically to young women, and thought that the phrase would anchor the song's theme.

Youtube.com: How to set Saddle Fore Aft | Bike Fit Tip
> So if I slide forwards from the saddle by lifting my hands up, should I move the saddle fore or aft?

If your hips slide forward when you do the test, I would first try the saddle back slightly and see how the test is affected -- keep in mind since this is a test that's dependent on a lot of parts of our fit that you may need to shorten your stem or otherwise change the reach. We don't want to increase the reach of the bike too much. When you have the right reach and the right setback the test will get a lot more stable and you won't slip forward.

650b/ 700c
Brake reach needs to increase by 19mm to go from 622 to 584. Any brake that has enough reach to support a reasonably wide 700c tire is likely not going to have the additional reach to get to 650B... For example, Paul Racer centerpulls (my favorite) go from 59mm to 73mm (according to the Paul website); the Silver sidepulls go from 55 to 73 (according to Riv). Neither of those would support both 650B and 700C.

A Dystopian Future? The Rise of Social Credit Systems by Liav Orgad, Wessel Reijers
Is China's Social Credit System leading the way to a dystopian future? ‘Yes’, claims Wessel Reijers, who identifies dangerous dictatorial tendencies that do not live up to the promise of cultivating civic virtue. ‘No’, argues Jens van 't Klooster, who sees it as a promising way to enhance distributive justice and an alternative for price mechanisms in market economies. In an online symposium, we have asked several eminent scholars to take sides in this timely controversy concerning an unparalleled effort of social engineering that will soon influence the lives of over a billion citizens. Is the Social Credit System a ‘digital dictatorship’ or a ‘digital republic’? How unique it is in a comparative and historical perspective? Is a social credit system good for women? And what are the implications of the system on the institution of citizenship?

Reddit.com/r/bikewrench/: Shimano XT M8000 vs T8000
The RDM8000 is meant for MTB type bikes and does have the full clutched Shadow+ mechanism. It is an 11speed rear derailleur meant for use with up to a 46t sprocket depending on chainring configuration. The RD-T8000 is meant for trekking/touring type bikes and as you have already correctly noted does not have a clutch mechanism (standard Shadow design, not Shadow+). It is a 10spd rear derailleur! It is also meant for a max sprocket of 36t since touring/trekking riders are more likely to use a double/triple chainring but also want slightly closer gear ratio steps. There is a very strong trend in the MTB world to ditching front shifting. The T8000 system which, with its 36t max cog, strongly depends on front shifting to have a sufficient range of gearing (unless you live in a really flat area). So overall, T8000 lacks clutch, lacks max cog usable with 1x setup, and isn't compatible with the MTB upgrade path which is solidly in 11spd (or 12 if you're using SRAM) now.

WTB Resolute Tire: Checkpoint
Two things to note here. First- The Resolute is a far bigger volume tire than a Nano 40 is. Secondly, the Nano is not nearly as fast a tire and excels at straight line traction more so than the Resolute. What results is that on the one hand, with the Nano 40, you have a tire that is adept at climbing, braking, and maybe most importantly- fits many cyclo cross bikes. On the other hand you have a general purpose off-pavement tire with exceptional ride feel, speed, and that has good stability on loose gravel. However; the Resolute is not going to fit a lot of older bikes. This is why I call out for a 37-38mm variant. So, if both tires were similar size the conclusion would be that the Nano 40 is more of a specialist while the Resolute is more of an all-around tire.

Entrepreneur or precarious worker? These are the terms of a cognitive dissonance that turns everyone’s life into a shaky project in perennial start-up phase. Silvio Lorusso guides us through the entreprecariat, a world where change is natural and healthy, whatever it may bring. A world populated by motivational posters, productivity tools, mobile offices and self-help techniques. A world in which a mix of entrepreneurial ideology and widespread precarity is what regulates professional social media, online marketplaces for self-employment and crowdfunding platforms for personal needs. The result? A life in permanent beta, with sometimes tragic implications.

What is the Entreprecariat?
I would like to tentatively explain what I mean by entreprecariat. More accurately, I wish to indicate some directions for this term, since I conceive it as a "force field", a set of crossing vectors, rather than a crystallized object. Entreprecariat is a portmanteau that combines entrepreneurialism and the precariat. As such, it captures both as coexisting axes of a semiotic square of the social.
