♥ This week's episode: ICO not ICO

Some small but fun things this week so far. I do love the satisfaction of finding out how to do the little stuff. It irked me recently why my github pages site displays a generic, lame preview without any image when I share the link with anyone via text. Well, all it takes is a little Googling to figure out how to throw down the proper meta tags and link up a sweet image to fix that.
  1. Apple Technical Notes for Link Previews
  2. Favicon Generator. Simple and works like a charm. 
  3. Tripetto. Sleek functional and free form builder. Well played.
  4. Google Forms. Functional and free but not sleek. Averagely played.

♠ I Want to Hack

  • I Want to Hack began documenting my desire to code and explore software engineering in the early 2012's, and re-emerged in 2020 after many years of working in small business, starting an engineering degree and doing a bunch of self learning in the web-development world.

♣ Undertow & Eamonn
