Today’s Links (11/09/08)
- Improving my Delicious command for Ubiquity - 0xDECAFBAD - Mozilla Firefox
Great improvements, but this also highlights how counter-intuitive/confusing Ubiquity commands can be (see my comments on the post - it took me ages to work out how to use the new features, and I still can’t do my usual ‘quote something from the page I’m bookmarking, then add my own comment’ thing).

- Panic - Extras - Miscellanous Bits of Panic
Panic are giving away Transmit 1.7 for OS 9, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the app. I’m pretty sure Transmit (nÃÂ©e Transit) is the only app I’ve used for ten years. Though nowadays it only gets launched very occasionally, thanks to ExpanDrive, which suits my light use of SFTP much better.

I'm a sucker for a box set of vinyl, and a sucker for cover versions. So I bought a copy.
- Hardformat - Reaching for the sublime in music design.
Does what it says on the tin. Well, less 'tin', more 'laser etched recycled cardboard sleeve with hand drawn tracing paper inserts'.
- PostSpectacular: Faber Finds generative book covers
"A year ago Faber & Faber commissioned me to help with the design of a software system to generate complete & print ready book covers for their new imprint. The challenge proved to be more of a creative than a technical one, as the task given was to build a Ã¢â¬Ådesign machineÃ¢â¬Â which would be flexible enough to generate a very large (theoretically infinite) number of unique designs, one for each single book ever printed in this range, within the agreed boundaries set by the art direction(s) of Faber design team."

Search your stuff on Google Docs from Spotlight. (I don't use Google Docs, but really like this sort of integration between the desktop and web services.)
