What Kolor is this? Colour Matching Game by Jorge Moreno
There's not an awful lot to say about What Kolor is This, by Jorge Moreno, as it's pretty self explanatory as an online gaming concept.
However, don't be fooled into thinking this is easy, because after the first few rounds, you'll end up struggling to select the right colour. I can guarantee it!
It's pretty fiendish, as the number of available color options increase, but also so do their similarity in hue.
Simple; yet challenging.

uiGradients: Modern Dual-tone Colour Gradients for Designers & Developers by Indrashish Ghosh
I've had this lovely website bookmarked for a few weeks now, after initially tweeting it; it's been in my 'to blog' list until now. Christmas is all but here, and I wanted to post something colourful and useful.

If you struggle to come up with pleasing gradients for your designs, then uiGradients is worth bookmarking. It'll allow you to select from a healthy library of colour gradients from which to bring your web designs to life.
You can also 'Get the CSS Code' (as below), which makes it super easy to make your website look really pretty:
background: #7b4397; /* fallback for old browsers */ background: -webkit-linear-gradient(to left, #7b4397 , #dc2430); /* Chrome 10-25, Safari 5.1-6 */ background: linear-gradient(to left, #7b4397 , #dc2430); /* W3C, IE 10+/ Edge, Firefox 16+, Chrome 26+, Opera 12+, Safari 7+ */
If you're the sort of person that likes to give as well as take, then you can also 'Add your Gradient', for instant Karma points:
Adding a gradient is easy. All gradients are read from a
gradients.jsonfile which is available in this project's repo. Simply add your gradient details to it and submit a pull request
Apple Mac Colour Classic
Just purchased/won on eBay, an 'apparently' mint Apple Mac Colour Classic, with all boxes, floppies and manuals. Been watching it for a week on eBay and it ended today. Sure something must be wrong as I was the only bidder, makes me nervous when that happens.
I had the original Mac Classic, not colour, when it first came out all those years ago, upgraded for a Mac LC, then onwards through each Mac reincarnation to now, a modest Mac Pro.
So been on the look out for a 'close to mint' specimen. Not black and white, but colour will do nicely.
Not new to ebay, used to be a big seller myself, with nearly 5000 positive feedbacks, so far at 100%, so know full well that not all things work out as you expect, or would like.
But the photos looks extremely promising.
Look forward to getting it in post and setting it up next to my Mac Pro.
Old vs New.
NOTE FROM GRAHAM
Since reading Malcom Gladwell's book, 'Blink' I have become considerably more comfortable in my own ability to make the 'correct' decision as a 'snap judgement', instinctual response, emotional or anger, practical or in practical, right or wrong. It would seem for me anyway that my instinct has been proven right on many occasions which can only fill 'me' with more confidence about the 'inner workings' of 'me' as a person.
It's only if I allow time to doubt myself that it all goes horribly wrong (some would argue my whole life is horribly wrong). Malcom, through many studies and examples gives a convincing case that our instinct is 'mostly' the correct response in any given situation. It is a great book, not huge, so a easy swift read. He also has a web site, www.gladwell.com and Blog (blog is lacking in recent entries). The book will no doubt leave you feeling a lot more self assured. That's ofcourse if your instincts have generally been spot on. If not, then maybe you should give it a miss! :0)
This following study from University College of London, reinforces this understanding of the human mind.
