while revising some code of the project I found out that last year when I introduced the funding status of this project online I had calculated costs by applying a fictional amount for my amount of work. Seeing this along with the slow decline of donations over the last months, I was curious how the actual funding state is. Finally, because I want to do everything in the open about this project, I decided to fix my mistake and applied real world numbers to the funding. Unfortunately, this commit was not very enlightening as it mostly is when working on a side project. I do love to work on this project and I will continue. But seeing the number of subscribers growing equally while seeing the support declining makes me a bit sad. I decided to not take any ads in here and will probably never change that, so I rely solely on donations by my readers.

Now after that little personal note (sorry, if it sounds a bit ranty), here are the best articles I found over the past week:


Concepts & Design




CSS / Sass

Work life

Go beyond…

And with that I’ll close for this week. In case you like what I write each week, please support me via Flattr, gratipay or share this resource with other people. You can learn more about the costs of the project here. It’s available via E-Mail, RSS and online.

Thanks and all the best,
