Wes Bos recently launched a new Github repo called Awesome Uses that let’s everyone list their personal “uses” pages and I’ve added mine.
If you are not familiar with “/uses” pages the goal is to be able to point people to a single spot to find out everything about your setup. What happens is when you share things on social media you’ll get hundreds of responses asking the font, the editor, and everything else so this makes it’s easy to tell them to just go here.
Mine is already a little outdated so I’m going to work on fixing it up. It’s sort of funny how often I adjust my tools.
“You must sleep some time between lunch and dinner, and no half-way measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That’s what I always do. Don’t think you will be doing less work because you sleep during the day. That’s a foolish notion held by people who have no imagination. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one-well, at least one and a half, I’m sure.”
I came across this quote today and because of confirmation bias I think we should listen to this man.
My friend Mohamed Said asked me, “When are we going to see a cartoon on people who crash on a bike?”, and not wanting to disappoint I decided to make one of him.
This one was fun to make and I had the idea of just having a huge head screaming but then you couldn’t tell it was a bike crash, so I had to include some of the other features. For something I did over my lunch break I think it turned out decent.
That photo of my iPad is how I created the image by finding one of him and stealing some of the colors and getting a basic outline. Then just attempting to make the facial expression funny.
This is an illustration I created to represent Laravel Homestead. I’m planning on using it for a featured image for future posts.
Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun making quick little comics and here is one I just put together tonight while watching TV. This one is targeted toward Twitter, but I’ve seen the same thing on all the social networks. The questions never end and that is why many are now creating uses pages on their sites so it’s easy to answer all the questions.
