Typografische Strafzettel – Nerdcore

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/19

Want: [WayBack] Typografische Strafzettel – Nerdcore

Hoefler&Co verkauft Typografische Strafzettel für Schlechtsetzer und Buchstabenkombinationsnullen. Die Schriftverbrechen gliedern sich auf dem Strafzettel in Vergehen der Auswahl (wie der unironische Einsatz „amüsanter“ Schriften oder die amateurishe Anwendung von Schriftauszeichnung ), der Komposition (zuviele Schriftgrößen, schlechtes Kerning), der Zeichensetzung (Ligaturen, korrekte Anführungen) und in Schwere Ästhetikverletzungen (elektronische Schrägschrift, Verzerrung). Großartige Idee, und sie haben nichtmal ComicSans mit Namen erwähnt. Toll! (via Jason Kottke, Bild des ganzen Strafzettels unten via /u/hova414) By special issue from the 100% totally real Typographic Violations Division, the Uniform Ticket Book is standard equipment for the modern design enforcer. Lists thirty-two common design infractions, each

I wish they were available outside in Europe, as it looks like it is is USA only with large foreign shipping costs at [WayBack] The Typographic Ticket Book – Hoefler&Co:

By special issue from the 100% totally real Typographic Violations Division, the Uniform Ticket Book is standard equipment for the modern design enforcer. Lists thirty-two common design infractions, each with an appropriate penalty, with plenty of room for improvisation. Authoritatively typeset in Helvetica to provoke

multi-headed

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/14

A long time ago, I named a tool Cerberus after the mythical multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld, as it was to inspect client systems configurations to prevent they would enter a bad state.

Since I need a multi-headed tool later on, below are some links on multi-headed (Polycephaly – Wikipedia) creatures to give me inspiration.

Some of them are centered around war, others around hell, are dragons or monsters, and a few are guardians. Later I will try to put a classification in a table or so.

The idea is to replace my current Apache TLS offloading (that uses letsencrypt/certbot for the certificates) with something else like an nginx one, and maybe even make the internal part TLS too (so it becomes TLS upstreaming) so these will come in useful too:

Instead of nginx, HAproxy might be a an option too, especially as it understands TCP traffic other than http much better than nginx:

This means I should first look into nginx vs haproxy – Google Search, for instance these posts:

IP over Avian Carriers

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/21

From the geek fun department: [WayBackIP over Avian Carriers – Wikipedia.

I learned through this slightly after the fight to keep HTTP status code 418 (I’m a teapot) which is part of RFC2324 released on April 1st, 1998.

The IP over Avian Carriers is part of three RFCs, all released on April 1st in various years:
