Repairing permissions when owner is "Fetching..." | Apple Support Communities
Back up all data before proceeding.
This procedure will unlock all your user files (not system files) and reset their ownership, permissions, and access controls to the default. If you've intentionally set special values for those attributes on any of your files, they will be reverted. In that case, either stop here, or be prepared to recreate the settings if necessary. Do so only after verifying that those settings didn't cause the problem. If none of this is meaningful to you, you don't need to worry about it, but you do need to follow the instructions below.

Going "Write-Only"
“Think of what that really means. Things that last. It’s all the more surprising because Joey is talking about writing software. Most code is notoriously ephemeral. It is complicated and ties in tightly with its environment. When the environment changes even a little the code becomes unusable without maintenance. By contrast the written word, math, music, or visual art are shared between human minds (much more forgiving systems, minds) and don’t tarnish as easily as code.”

Энтузиаст городской фотографии избегает банальностей — Look At Me — MAG — поток «Интернет»
В ПРОФИЛЕ ДИРКА БЭККЕРА, фотографа из Амстердама, редко встретишь типичные для этого города снимки с велосипедами и каналами. Опыт в графическом дизайне помогает Дирку увидеть в архитектуре игру теней, паттерны и текстуры. Сам он называет всё это «линиями города», и свою любовь к городской съёмке выразил в создании сайта SeeMyCity — платформы для городских фотографов.

Replace the volume changing sound | Macworld
When you use the volume up and down keys on your keyboard, your Mac emits a slight “click” sound to let you know you’ve pressed the key. You can silence this permanently in System Preferences -> Sound -> Sound Effects by unchecking the “Play feedback when volume is changed” option. Alternatively, as explained in this hint, you can temporarily silence it by holding down the Shift key while pressing the volume changing keys. But what if you like the sound, but you’d rather have it be something other than that clicking noise?

Why I hate funnels by Ben Chestnut
It's kinda funny how I've founded an email marketing service with over 3 million users around the world, but I've never felt comfy calling myself an "email marketer," let alone a member of the email marketing community. That's partly because I nearly failed Marketing 101 in college (don't tell anybody). But mostly, it's because I hate funnels. And professional marketers just won't shut up about those God forsaken things.

AP Was There: Original AP report of Lincoln's assassination
On the night Abraham Lincoln was shot, April 14, 1865, Associated Press correspondent Lawrence Gobright scrambled to report from the White House, the streets of the stricken capital, and even from the blood-stained box at Ford's Theatre, where, in his memoir he reports he was handed the assassin's gun and turned it over to authorities. Here is an edited version of his original AP dispatch

New Hacker News Guideline - Y Combinator Posthaven
This idea is simple. We’re updating the guidelines to add: "Avoid gratuitous negativity."

Critical thinking is good; shallow cynicism, on the other hand, adds nothing of value to the community. It is unpleasant to read and detracts from actual work. If you have something important but negative to say, that's fine, but say it in a respectful way.

Negativity isn't the problem--gratuitous negativity is. By that we mean negativity that adds nothing of substance to a comment. This includes all forms of meanness.

How to enable Safari Reader on your site? · Mathias Bynens
This definitely needs more investigating, but so far, these appear to be the most important factors for Safari’s Reader functionality to kick in:

* Use the right markup, i.e. make sure the most important content is wrapped inside a container element. Whether you use <article>, <div> or even <span> doesn’t seem to matter — as long as it’s not <p>.
* The content needs to be long enough. Use enough words, use enough paragraphs, use enough punctuation. Every paragraph should have at least 100 characters.
* Reader doesn’t work for local documents.

Frere-Jones Type | Typeface Mechanics: 001
Our conscious minds want to draw one shape, but our eyes need to see another. Part of typeface design is managing this eternal friction between logic and optics. It’s always there, no matter the style.

This new series of posts will explore what I call “typeface mechanics”, the behind-the-scenes work that makes typefaces visually functional. It is what placates the stubborn oddities of human perception, helps or hinders the user, and informs long-standing conventions of design.

The Rough Elements of an Annual Plan | The Weekly Briefly
For the last episode of 2014, I wanted to talk about planning for the next year. It’s not nearly as lame or tedious as it sounds — in fact, it’s something my wife and I have done for the past 3 years and we look forward to it.

A good annual plan should help you:

identify what you want to do
identify what you don’t want to do
discover what you need to do
And then, give yourself permission and freedom to do those things you want and need to and stop doing those things which you don’t want/need to do.

You know the process: make a rectangle in Photoshop, go to the web (in our case, instagram.com), find an image you want to use, drag it into Photoshop, resize and move it into place. Making a grid? Repeat that 15 times and try not to cry.

Introducing Pop, the animation engine behind Paper
Pop is an extensible animation engine for iOS and OS X. In addition to basic static animations, it supports spring and decay dynamic animations, making it useful for building realistic, physics-based interactions. The API allows quick integration with existing Objective-C codebases and enables the animation of any property on any object. It's a mature and well-tested framework that drives all the animations and transitions in Paper.

Rebound - spring dynamics for Android
Rebound is a java library that models spring dynamics. Rebound spring models can be used to create animations that feel natural by introducing real world physics to your application.

Rebound is not a general purpose physics library; however, spring dynamics can be used to drive a wide variety of animations. The simplicity of Rebound makes it easy to integrate and use as a building block for creating more complex components like pagers, toggles, and scrollers.

Rebound uses the same spring constants as Origami making it easy to convert Origami interaction mockups directly into your Android application.
