I've spent most of my life so far making art, playing in bands, and working day jobs. In 2012 I decided to devote a few years to learning some code. I currently work freelance in Los Angles, Ca doing front endy stuff and other things like content strategy and project coordination. I dig code / sound / light

I never know who I'm dealing with on here - so - just so you know: I am currently a full time web developer. My native language is American English, and I am 32 years old. I prefer the Oxford comma. Commas are for pauses. Sound it out. Beyond that - I love dashes, and my sentence structure is built with rhythm in mind. If you want to spend your time correcting my grammar, that's ok with me.

Keep it fun. That is the whole point, isn't it?

I haven't put anything on my site in over a year. All of my recent work is internal.

I'll check that out. I haven't used FontLab since this experience but I was just about to break it out again.

comment Vector pasting in wrong spot / Font Lab and Illustrator
Well... I checked them all out. Everything was in place. The only thing that wasn't was the document wasn't double the width. But that didn't fix it (right away). I went through and unchecked and rechecked. Something on that list fixed it. I wish I knew which. Thanks for your direction.

comment Tools to simulate different DPI screens?
ppi and pixels are a whole different thing. I would switch over to em's % and just leave the pixels behind.

comment Tools to simulate different DPI screens?
when I wrote this, I was for some reason assuming you use this meta: <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1"> --- If you do, (I do) then scaling your browser is just like the devices... 320ox width in firefox looks just like the iphone - except the pictures are more crisp and the fonts as well. But the design structure is spot on.

comment target specific corners for rounding
Hooray! Thank you. That worked perfectly. For those like me, web developers, you're probably going to just click this script and then read it all admire it - and then not know what to do. Select the points you want to round -> then from FILE->SCRIPTS->OTHER-SCRIPTS>choose the script. OR - If you are going to use it a lot, Drag it to -> Applications/Illustrator/Presets/en_GB(or en_EN)/Scripts. And then it will be in the FILE/Scripts menu forevers.
