a font affair- sans serif edition! hello, friends! my latest font affair has been with serif, sans serif and fixed-width fonts. i just love them! i’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but i’m beginning to see many blogs starting to stray away from using lots of fancy fonts to using more basic ones with a few fancier ones mixed in as accents. this gives the posts a more editorial, magazine-like feel. to help you get a jump start on the trend, look no further. a font affair- sans serif edition saves the day! :) below you’ll find links to each font, and as usual all are free! 1. bebas neue 2. goudy bookletter 1911 3. derivia 4. foglihten 5. znikomit 6. champagne & limousines 7. optimus princeps 8. monofur 9. will & grace 10. pharmacy 11. clemente 12. honey badger 13. fortunata 14. american purpose 15. caviar dreams 16. passion sans 17. keytin 18. florence 19. st ryde 20. london mm 21. tex gyre adventor 22. museo 23. oksansa 24. europe underground 25. patagonia 26. quicksand 27. apple garamond 28. headline 29. cicle 30. lane

Programming iPhone Sensors About the Class The class is now available for US$99.99 from the O'Reilly Media website. Included in the price is the full four and half hours of video, a copy of the slides I used on the day with added commentary, fully working Xcode projects allowing you to build and follow along with all the code we built during the class, and two preview chapters from "Programming iPhone Sensors." This class guides you through developing applications for the iPhone and iPad platforms that make use of the onboard sensors: the three-axis accelerometer, the magnetometer (digital compass), the gyroscope, the camera and the global positioning system. YouÕll learn how to make use of these onboard sensors and combine them to build augmented reality applications. This will give you the background to building your own applications independently using the hottest location-aware technology yet for any mobile platforms. This class assumes previous experience with the Objective-C language.

- StumbleUpon I have been playing a lot with the Displace filter in Photoshop and I still get impressed with how powerful it is. Even though I have written some tutorials using it, I decided to try to recreate a different effect that I saw in one of the images submitted for the Daily Inspiration. It was a brick wall deformed like it was made of cloth. So in this tutorial, or a quick-tips I will show you how to create a curtain made of bricks or how to deform a brick wall as it was a curtain. To do that we wil use a few stock photos, layer adjustments and the Displace filter in Photoshop CS5. Step 1 Open Photoshop and create a new document. Step 2 Let's import another image, now of a girl opening the curtains. Step 3 With the Lasso Tool (L) or the Pen Tool (P) select the empty white. Step 5 Now select the hands/arms of the girl and the curtains. Step 6 Move the brick wall layer so it will be in front of the girl layer. Step 7 Go to Layer>Layer Mask>Hide Selection. Step 8 Step 9 Step 10 Step 11 Step 12 Step 13
