On the importance of kerning, de gilfactor

Kerning

See for example these "10 flickering lights". Or do you read something else?

Or this "megaflicks"?

Yes, "kerning" is important!

Kerning is the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font, usually to achieve a visually pleasing result.

Just saw a great example n Dutch TV. There is a program called "de gil factor", the scream factor. But with the wrong kerning, it read "The Gilf actor".

And that from the deepest christian broadcaster EO

3d scan of my room using the kinect

I love all the stuff one can do with the Microsoft Kinect. Take for example, this scan of my bay window

(looks like a snow bawl due to the white parts outside)

And without color:

The kinect can be used for much more then just scanning. Scanning one's girlfriend for example :-)

Tour De Drupal, come to DrupalCon Amsterdam by bike


When the three orange Dutch guys presented DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014 in Prague, they had a slide (#36) were they joked about that one should come to Amsterdam, The Netherlands by bike.

Two friends were funny enough to take this from "a joke" to "a practial joke". Rachel and Stefan created "Tour de Drupal", a community movement to get as many Drupalista as possible to visit DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014 in 330 days by bike!


If you come to this DrupalCon, there is no excuse, you have to come by bike and put yourself on the map. While you are at it, follow our friends on @TourDeDrupal as well. Even I come by bike, and so should you Dries!

There is bound to be more funny stuff coming from the community in Amsterdam, I hope to be involved in some of this and will post it here as well. There is for example talk of an Eurosongfestival with Drupal songs and a revival of the Kitten Killers so bring your guitar as well.

So in the closing ceremony we now have lists of the amount Megabits used, liters coffee drunken and number of flat tires… :-)
