The Lost Type Co-op is a collaboration between Tyler Galpin and Riley Cran. It was founded with the intention of providing unique and quality fonts based on a pay-what-you-want model. All designers get 100% of the donations their font receives.

I have to build CMS like elements from time to time, so keeping abreast on the latest and greatest is part of my job. Two new ones recently popped onto my radar, and I thought I’d log them here.
CreateJS — createjs.org/
Create is designed to provide a modern, fully browser-based HTML5 environment for managing content. Create can be adapted to work on almost any content management backend. The user interface philosophy behind Create is simple: all content that you are allowed to change becomes editable, right there on the page you’re reading. Any modifications you make are retained in your browser and can be sent back to the CMS with a push of a button.
Aloha Editor — aloha-editor.org/
Is a advanced browser HTML5 based WYSIWYG editor lets you experience a whole new way of editing. It’s faster than existing technologies and offers unprecedented WYSIWYG functionality. This can be integrated into CreateJS to enhance it.
socket.io — socket.io/
node.js — nodejs.org/
v8 — code.google.com/p/v8/
FullCalendar is a jQuery plugin that provides a full-sized, drag & drop calendar like the one below. It uses AJAX to fetch events on-the-fly for each month and is easily configured to use your own feed format (an extension is provided for Google Calendar). It is visually customizable and exposes hooks for user-triggered events (like clicking or dragging an event). It is open source and dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses.
This is a nice alternative to some commercial charting library options.
The focus is on simple usage (all settings are optional), attractive looks and interactive features like zooming and mouse tracking.
Connect to a linux desktop thru your windows desktop. Xming is the leading X Window Server for Microsoft XP/2008/Windows7. It is a fully featured X Server and is lean, fast, current, simple to install and because it is standalone native Microsoft Windows®, easily made portable (not needing a machine-specific installation).
