Sapientia for Textual 2.1.x

Sapientia has been updated for Textual 2.1.x, finally.

Sapientia is a customisation of the “Simplified Dark” theme that ships with Textual (originally by Ben Alman). The idea was to re-tool it towards some more relaxed and “earthier” colours, in addition to switching the theme to Helvetica.

Changelog for v1.2:

  • Updates theme to work with Textual 2.1.x
  • Slight colour tweaking, brightening the background slightly.

Instructions: Unzip the file, and place in your “~/Library/Containers/com.codeux.irc.textual/Data/Library/Application Support/Textual IRC/Styles/” folder.


Panic Blog » 10 Years of Touts

In prepping the new page, I moved the old images out of the way. And that’s when I realized we had something interesting:

A collection of little rotating “tout” graphics we had at the top of the old site.

A lot of nostalgic images in that post. Takes me back to the days when Audion was my audio player of choice, Mac OS 9 was all the rage, and the coloured clamshell-iBooks were just appearing on the scene.  Transmit is still my favourite FTP client.

Great people, Panic.

Death by Coke

The AP recently ran an article about a New Zealand woman’s “death by Coke”, which a number of sites (from my local newspaper, to TIME) have picked up and republished. A woman drank two gallons (~7.6 L) of Coca-Cola a day, and an investigation concluded this led to her fatal heart-attack. The world needs a little more common-sense — seven and change bottles a day is just little much, a bottle or two a week might be better.
