The Most Depressing Home Offices Ever

I’ve had this link open in a browser tab for a few days now, and have gone back to it a few times looking through them. It’s an exercise in perspective and gratitude. Anyway, enough of that, may I present to you: The Most Depressing Home Offices Ever.


FUUT | UNDER-DESK FOOT HAMMOCK

I would definitely use this.

The other day I learned what “Swatting” is: Dangerous prank brings SWAT team down on gamer

10 more fucking jQuery Plugins

The constant stream of posts containing lists of plugins is never ending, however this one contained a couple which looked interesting and worth following up.

Blackhawk Secretary

BLACKHAWK SECRETARY | BY RESTORATION HARDWARE – I wish I had a reason to use this because “it’s compact and space saving” rather than “it looks cool and mysterious and shit”.

I don’t.


Internet Citizenship Test

The Internet Citizenship Test is a quiz based on a collection of rather old (original?) Internet memes. Fail and be kicked off the Internet, succeed and show your age.

Your life in weeks

Your Life in Weeks – some creepy visualisations. You have about 4,500 weeks to live, and seeing them all on one image is a weird experience.


Adobe Creative Cloud Has Been Down for Almost 24 Hours

Adobe Creative Cloud Has Been Down for Almost 24 Hours – ouch. While this is a risk with any cloud service, the thought of not being able to apply lens flares to photos of food sounds terrifying enough to make you stop and pause.
