Hey, Mr. Bass!

basstheorychaos:

Hey guys! I wanted to post about the Kickstarter my friends at PrintEco are doing. Here’s an excerpt from the Kickstarter:

The Project

Until now, we didn’t have a feature that optimizes the actual typeface of the document — which is exactly what FontSaver will do.

Simply put, FontSaver will read the text of a document, and determine if ink savings are possible by changing the typeface to an eco-friendly font such as Garamond. If there are multiple different fonts being used, our algorithms will recognize this and suggest a variety of ink-saving fonts to maintain the document’s style. Then a single click will optimize the document with FontSaver, and the user will automatically save ink (and paper, and money, and the earth) when they print!

Okay! So please go check their Kickstarter out, and reblog this post to give it a much-needed signal boost. If you have any questions, The PrintEco guys are super friendly and can easily be reached on Twitter and Facebook. Happy Earth Day!

Game jams are a cure for jaded gamers as well as developers »

I also recommend game jams for a great way to test out collaborating with some new folks. The stakes aren’t very high, and you can easily figure out if you work well together.

I exported this at 75% size, so hopefully this doesn’t turn out too blurry or anything. ALSO, the trial has the words DEMO across it, so don’t expect to use it for published videos. :(

I like the term “editor” better than anything related to QA. I still think “banging on the app” when I think of QA; with editor, it’s like they’re actively keeping the bad out of whatever software system they’re responsible for.
