1. Aral Balkan: Funny to think my first blog ever was plain static HTML, then a custom full-Flash site, then b2/Wordpress, and now plain static HTML again.

    aral I find I go in similar “abstraction loops” for many things. Start off basic → try out an abstraction → try out a higher abstraction → and another → get tired of abstractions, return to the original/something similar. The process always informs me in useful ways, however horrible the intermediate results are ;)

  2. Laura Kalbag: Avatars. Do they add anything to comments, or are they a waste of space?

    laurakalbag they add significant value to conversations, as they provide a recognisable visual indication of who is speaking and where each comment starts/ends. I am inclined against comments, but would recommend having avatars if you do :)

  3. I absolutely love Averia, and use it all over my personal website. I think it is a wonderful idea, brilliantly executed. The result is surprisingly readable, and the slight “erosion” effect reminds me a lot of very early type. Many thanks for making these fonts and licensing them so freely :)

  4. Trying to resist the temptation to use ☺ for unordered list items.

    Thankfully, CSS doesn’t seem to have the concept of list-style-character.
