GeekHeroComic in iGoogle

Today's geekherocomic.com strip came with an interesting news. It's Salvatore Iovene birthday! And the post was about the book his fiancée built with the last entire year strips archive. I really like this guy work, it's a funny part of my day and to celebrate this special occasion I created a gadget to all GeekHeroComic readers to monitor the latest strip directly from iGoogle homepage.

Happy birthday @siovene! Keep doing this amazing work!

Logomark and Icons for AXE

This is when things like color palettes, code snippets and good pratices like name conventions becomes handy. I’ll be adding some useful, at least for me, things here to share to anyone interested. Currently you can find there just two color palettes and some snippets. But i’ll be adding more things as soon as I can.
