Calca – Simple. Elegant. Powerful. — Beautiful Pixels

Calca by Krueger Systems is not your everyday calculator app. It is really powerful and text based.

Sounds like the calculator for me.

The best macaroni and cheese: traditional vs. Modernist

I put out two vats of mac & cheese, labeled “A” and “B”, and gave everyone a plate, a fork, and a comment card. I ended up with ten responses (I abstained), and the verdict was clear… > Modernist won, nine votes to one. Tasters thought it was creamier, cheesier, and more flavorful.

Breaking Bad Sets End Game — ‘Breaking Bad’ Deconstruction: Ep. 10: ‘Buried’

There is a clash coming. It may not be anything imagined in all of these hypothetical endgame scenarios you’ve been reading. Or it might line up pretty neatly. But the teams have been separated, and there are a lot of competing interests about to square off. Drama needs characters to commit, to reveal their interests and desires and loyalties.

Luther Season 3: TV Review – Hollywood Reporter

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther is a troubled man. He’s brilliant like Sherlock Holmes, but he’s as troubled (maybe even more so) than Prime Suspect’s Jane Tennison (Helen Mirren).

This can soon become messy and hard to handle. One solution for this problem which works well for me, is the terminal multiplexer, tmux.

Wer gerne und viel im Terminal arbeitet, kennt das entweder, oder sollte es sich mal ansehen.

Is ‘The Newsroom’ the Best Bad Show Ever? | Movies News | Rolling Stone

You have to be a genius like Aaron Sorkin to get away with a show as vigorously awful as The Newsroom. That’s the thing that makes it so agonizing in its watchability. Sorkin sees his hero Will McAvoy, played by Jeff Daniels, as the last noble Roman in the wilderness of cable news. But Will is just a blowhard twit who can’t stop lecturing about his hard-won ideals.

So werden Sie zum Dünst-Gott! | Missy Magazine

Seit ein paar Jahren gibt es die Zeitschrift „Beef!“. Ihr Untertitel: „Für Männer mit Geschmack“. Das ist natürlich nicht wahr. „Beef!“ ist eine Zeitschrift für Männer mit Ängsten. Davor, keine „echten Männer“ zu sein.

Auf den Punkt.

Authentic Design | Smashing Magazine

The recently popularized “flat” interface style is not merely a trend. It is the manifestation of a desire for greater authenticity in design, a desire to curb visual excess and eliminate the fake and the superfluous.
