URL-encoder for SVG
We can use SVG in CSS via data URI, but without encoding it works only in Webkit based browsers. If encode SVG using encodeURIComponent() it will work everywhere.

SVG must have attribute xmlns like this: xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'. If it doesn't exist, it will be added automagically.

Encoded SVG can be used in background and border-image.

Regex Dictionary by Lou Hevly
The Regex Dictionary is a searchable online dictionary, based on The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 4th edition, that returns matches based on strings —defined here as a series of characters and metacharacters— rather than on whole words, while optionally grouping results by their part of speech. For example, a search for "cat" will return any words that include the string "cat", optionally grouped according to gramatical category:

- Adjectives: catastrophic, delicate, eye-catching, etc.
- Adverbs: marcato, staccato, etc.
- Nouns: scat, category, vacation, etc.
- Verbs: cater, complicate, etc.

In other words, the Regex Dictionary searches for words based on how they are spelled; it can find:

- adjectives ending in ly (197; ex.: homely)
- words ending in the suffix ship (89)
- Adjectives (1, midship)
- Nouns (80; ex.: membership)
- Suffixes (1, -ship)
- Verbs (6; ex.: worship)
- words, not counting proper nouns, that have six consecutive consonants, including y (79; ex.: strychnine)
- words, not counting proper nouns, that have six consecutive consonants, not counting y (2; ex.: latchstring)
- words of 12 or more letters that consist entirely of alternate consonants and vowels (45; ex.: legitimatize)

The Ultimate Gaming on a Mac guide: Can my Mac run it? | Mac Gamer HQ
So you have a Mac, and in spite of hearing that Macs aren’t great for gaming, you still want to know what games your Mac can run.

You’re in for a surprise: Gaming on a Mac offers exceptional games that can be enjoyed even on older MacBooks. And while most Mac gaming guides give you system requirements and hardware specs, we focus on the real question you’re asking yourself:

Can I run it, Mac?

We went ahead and spent hours testing some of the best Mac games on several Mac models, ranging from powerful iMacs to older MacBook Pros:

The McKenzie Tapes is a collection of live audio recordings from some of New York City-area most prominent music venues of the 1980s and 1990s.

Project from Hell – Project Failures
A few years ago, I was hired to work as a consultant on a software project for a large French tech company. What I have witnessed there is beyond everything I could possibly have imagined in terms of software engineering. Far more serious than just a lack of professional competence was the utmost contempt for human dignity which at some point made me compare the whole experience to (what I imagine can be) jail. What I relate here is a selected list of topics that should illustrate my point, but check out by yourself.

Write research documents online, together. - Authorea
Authorea is alive and kicking, it’s backed by Harvard University, and it’s especially useful for larger projects: you can collaborate on articles or book manuscripts simultaneously, one section per person. Behind the scenes, Authorea creates one text file for each section. Since there’s no one big document file, you can restructure the document easily. It will only change the order of file references in a table-of-contents file. This is similar to Marked, mmd_merge, and the book format of Leanpub. It’ll cost you some money to create private projects, though. Authorea is designed for Open Science where you’re encouraged to let other people see and fork your articlesIt’s like GitHub for scientific articles – it even supports LaTeX!

IPFS is the Distributed Web
IPFS is the Distributed Web

A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open.

HTTP is inefficient and expensive. IPFS makes it possible to distribute high volumes of data with high efficiency. And zero duplication means savings in storage.

Humanity's history is deleted daily. IPFS provides historic versioning (like git) and makes it simple to set up resilient networks for mirroring of data.

The web's centralization limits opportunity. IPFS remains true to the original vision of the open and flat web, but delivers the technology which makes that vision a reality.

Our apps are addicted to the backbone. IPFS powers the creation of diversely resilient networks which enable persistent availability with or without Internet backbone connectivity.
