    I like it! You are making one new font a month? That is quite a work rate!

    This looks really nice.

    I use a sand timer that lasts about 30 minutes. Getting off my backside every half an hour, even for just a walk around the building, makes me feel better by the end of the day.

    Makes a good point, although the article is a tad self-serving...

    I like eReaders, and I don't miss the full keyboard on the kindle at all, but I never quite understood why they dropped hardware buttons for page turns on base-models.

    Kobo has also done this.

    Haha It's far from a deal breaker, and it's surprisingly hard to come up with a dark theme that people are happy with.

    I agree about the customisation too, it's just more stuff to break...

    Ollie, I love Milanote, keep up the great work. I only do design work as a part of my job, but I find Milanote really handy for anything in the planning stages, including the beginnings of database schema design.

    My employer was so impressed with it that they paid for 12 months of it for me.

    One question: do you have a dark theme coming? I work under a rock and milanote is blinding!

    Every year the guys over at Letterboxd put a lot of work into this and it's always great.

    Yeah plus I like to know when I've actually hit the bottom of it. There's something really distracting about pages that just load up the next thing before you're even done with what you're reading.

    This is nuts. Looks kind of nice but at the same time it's winding me up just looking at it. It's a blunderbuss of information, with long form pieces flowing into snippets gathered from other sites.

    It also feeds my irrational hatred of sites that move you to another article as you scroll down.
