I hate to say I forgot where I saw this link. Normally I’d like to attribute it to whatever blog/site I was reading, but I forgot. Damn, damn, damn.
Anyway, Font Squirrel‘s tagline is “Handpicked free fonts for graphic designers with commercial-use licenses.”
The site is very cool because many times you’ll see a bunch of list posts such as “100 FREE High-Quality Fonts!”, but when you read the license it won’t allow you to use it in a commercial project. Curses!
So they’ve gone and read all the fine print for you. Better them than me :)
Saw this over at the Themeforest site this week. Good googa mooga, people! I had no idea the potential earnings were that high from WordPress theme development. Time to get into the game, y’all.
It used to be a bit of a hassle to update Joomla, but these days with the Update Manager Extension there’s just no excuse for putting it off. Get it done, people!
Finally, over on iJoomla, Merav did a rather interesting Joomla.org Usability Testing Report. The article and the comments really made me think about how I’m going to approach usability with regards to creating websites in the future.
SOCIAL MEDIA STUFF
Here’s a great primer article from Ars Technica on how the new Facebook groups feature works. I was initially cold on the prospect of Groups replacing Lists, but I can see a lot more potential now. I guess not all change has to be bad. How to use, abuse, and leave Facebook Groups
This article from Social Media Examiner takes you through how to use and get the most out of Delicious, which I’m ashamed to say I’ve never used. But now I see how it could be pretty handy and useful so I’m gonna go and set up shop there. How to Use Delicious: The King of Social Bookmarking
Another Social Media Examiner article. This one has a video from Mari Smith (love this lady!) explaining how to use video to your advantage in your social media endeavors!
I guess the waiting period is over for the Netflix ban on “disc-free streaming”. Meaning that those of you who use this service will now b able to use it more efficiently by freeing up your disc drive for something else.
Another PS3 movie tidbit: If you sign on to the PSN between 8PM and 6AM EST every Saturday Night, you’ll be able to snag a free movie rental. Nice! We can use this for those snowy winter nights that are just around the corner for those of us in the midwest USA. Free ‘Midnight Movies’ on PSN every Saturday night
And last but not least, this video of a dance-group out in California really cracked me up. I remembered back in the days when me and my friends really thought we were getting busy on the dance floor, but we were nothing like these guys!
Anyway, that wraps up another Fat-ASS Friday Link’s adventure. So hopefully you got something out of it and let me know if you have any links you want to share in the comments. Peace!
