A Little Giveaway

Over a year ago, I redesigned the UI for Dropshare. As part of my payment, I got four licenses to give away, which I promptly forgot about.

So, today, I’d like to get ‘em out there. I’m already giving two licenses away on Twitter, but wanted to hold a couple back for my old friends here on Freewaytalk. If you want a chance as winning one of these, just reply to this thread and I’ll draw names for the two licenses tomorrow at noon.

And if you want to increase your chances, go ♥ this tweet.

And I was just beginning to revel in the thought that I am now a true celebrity! Why must you destroy my dreams?

You are! At least to me (which isn’t supposed to boost my chances though).

Cheers

We’re a half-hour out! If somebody doesn’t step up, Thomas and Max will win the licenses without breaking a sweat (not that they wouldn’t mind that).

Two Prizes - Two Entrants - Two Winners

Pretty good odds.

Well, I’ve still got one more license to hand out (my Twitter giveaway didn’t get much attention either). Whoever claims it first can have it!

Hi Caleb,

I’d like to thank you as well for your generous gift, happy being on the winner side of life. A pity that we somehow lost contact - presumably not to change anyway.

I know you’re a lover of history. Whenever I break into your region, be sure I’m taking part of one of those historical battle replays - perhaps as a german soldier - one of the 48ers, who knows?

Cheers

Thomas

Glad I could oblige, thanks all for participating!

If anybody wants a nicer looking landing page template, here’s mine: https://gist.github.com/calebgrove/b7dbf541d5b5ea444c967ced1371d122

Thomas, yeah, I find that my professional work keeps moving further and further away from what Freeway is well suited for, which makes it hard to remember to check Freewaytalk. I’ll still be in every now and then. If you ever come over and participate in a reenactment, let me know; there were lots of German immigrants who enlisted during the war, it would be great to see that represented.

OK - put on my lifetime agenda:

“Traveling to Caleb playing General Custer!”

I find that my professional work keeps moving further and further away from what Freeway is well suited for

Same here (pretty off). What is it you’re using these days?

Cheers

Off note:

Recently I stumbled upon:

Not really an active board. But it’s a bit a talk about god the world and his dog. Perhaps an alternative for occasional meetings?

Well, it looks like Freewaytalk ate my lengthy response, so here’s an abbreviated version: I hand code almost everything. A lot of my projects now require a strong CMS and a lot of custom logic, so I spend most of my time writing PHP. Here’s what I’ve got in my toolbox:

  • Atom for writing code.
  • Mindnode for planning, UX design, and even task management.
  • Codekit for Sass, Autoprefixer, and live reloading.
  • MAMP
  • Kirby (CMS of choice, it’s awesome).
  • Sketch for UI design.
  • DevDocs for offline documentation.
  • Forklift for SFTP goodness.
  • iTerm 2 for server management and such.

Caleb Grove, I have a problem with the site. Page loading increases greatly from time to time. Can you tell me what it may be related to?

Hello Tomfor!

Without having a URL to check, I would start by looking at your web host. It’s common practice to overload shared hosting servers, which can cause intermittent downtime and lots of latency. Send them a support ticket and see if they have anything to say.

Only the main page opens quickly. All other pages sometimes load within 40 seconds.

Huh. Could you send me a URL? If you would rather not post it publicly, you can find my email address at https://grovedesign.co or in my Freewaytalk bio.
