I'm thinking about calling my RSS recommendation site "The Rills" or just "Rills". Here are my reasons:

1) It has a Merveillesian ring to it.

2) A "rill" is a stream.

3) I can do a cool logo in which I incorporate BOTH the RSS logo AND the letters "RSS", like the attached image. (The designers among us could probably make a better version than mine.)

Anyone have an opinion about this choice? Or have any better ideas?

Also kinda fun:

"Attendees of this year’s Typographics Festival will receive a special gift from the Font of the Month Club: a free mystery font from the club’s back catalog chosen completely at random. There is one catch, however: that free font is stored on a 3.5” inch floppy diskette."


In related news, I need to get into that '80s-'90s aesthetic more. Very nostalgic.

"BIY™- Believe it Yourself is a series of real-fictional belief-based computing kits to make and tinker with vernacular logics and superstitions. With BIY™ you can tinker with cameras that can see luck, microphones that interpret your destiny, and compasses that can point you to harmony and balance."

:audio: I wrote up and recorded a little tutorial for using with SunVox on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), in case you're interested. It's super easy and doesn't use any of that JACK nonsense.

This sounds like it might be up your alley, @neauoire: "The Lisp Badge is a self-contained computer with its own display and keyboard, based on an ATmega1284, that you can program in the high-level language Lisp."
