It’s unfortunate that a ‘climate of sensitivity’ was enforced so heavy-handedly. It’s unfortunate so many other players had to get involved to re-establish common sense.

“Much of what made Twitter useful in the first place – Hashtags, @user and many other little Twitter specific conventions are hacks that were first adopted by users because Twitter didn’t support several key functions like groups or addressing a note to a specific user.

I just notice two things:
- I haven’t written here in a while
- My browsers’ URL autocomplete for ‘garr’ defaults to the sub-domain of a mostly unannounced project I’m very excited about.

After losing the fight with a native build-from-source multiple times, my currently recommended method of installing fontforge on the Mac OS X Lion is:
brew install fontforge
sudo brew link fontforge

Austin Sabel emailed, “I was having trouble getting an old cairo font document working in Lion. This saved me. However I ran into a few problems that it looks like some other users had too. The default compiler causes an error while installing fontforge on os x Lion 10.7.2. If you change the install command to the following command it will installed without throwing an error.”
brew install fontforge --use-gcc
