Luculent, a family of monospaced fonts

Luculent is a family of scalable (vector), monospaced, geometric sans-serif screen fonts designed for programmers. I began developing it in October 2008 after trying out as many of the available programming typefaces as I could find at the time. I wanted a pleasant looking typeface that could stand up to many hours a day of scrutiny. Though many good ones exist, none of them quite satisfied me or had every feature that I wanted. I decided to try making my own and the result was Luculent.

Darktable, an open source alternative to Adobe Lightroom

I was talking with my pal Khürt Williams about some photo-renaming software and in between things he introduced me to DARKTABLE

darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

It’s a multiplatform software, available for GNU/Linux, Windows and OS X and I will give it a look in the coming days, since I’m in the middle of exporting my images out of iPhoto and searching for an alternative.
