WritingCards would like to thank the following for their generous assistance: (in order of assistance)

Matt Stumphy
for help fixing my coding mistakes and coming up with a cool way to grey out the social links.

Robert Greenspan & Cody Owen
For helping gather cards at ATX in amazing Austin TX

and of course, all the amazing screenwriters kind enough to handwrite a Writing Card.

Gabriel Burgess for helping to translate Sato Shinsuke's card: 作り続けること ("Keep making things.") then it's followed by 佐藤信介 (Sato Shinsuke)"

Anne figured out Gillian for Gone Girl, which meant the card on the back was David Fitchner. Finally?

Its past 1:30am again. Time to sleep. But really want to get this polished enough that people will "like" it the first time.
Used the reccoeended Firebug to VERY easily spot and see the issue with the <div> tags - why didnt I see this earlier?
Its 2:41am. NEED to sleep.
More fixes tomrrow, Sleep till 9:30am?

  1. June 30
  2. Going to play more with <div>s to see if I can fix the index.html, but if not, just restore from the online version and try again
  3. Using firebug is very helpful.
  4. July 1
  5. Worked on the new logo and finalized the design. Posted on Facebook, but couldnt wait for comments, got a lot of verbal feedback.
  6. Chose to keep the LINE of the top of the W consistant so it woud unify the character shape and make it distinctive from the to other letterforms.
  7. Pulled the left side of the W letterform up, to make it more distinctivly a "W" rather than a "U".
  8. Split the cut from the C with 1.5 line thicknesses, so it would seperate it enough.
  9. Free transformed the W and C CIRCLES so that they were thicker at the bottom, though kept the line thickness at the top thinner.
  10. Tightened down the connector from W to C. Smoothted it out.
  11. Then tried the logo at different scales/sizes so could see if it works at many different sizes, it does.
  12. Transfered the deisgn to Photoshop where I inverted it and did all differtent colors, backgrounds etc.
  13. Then plopped the logo on the site, looks good.
  14. Added the typrighter from yesterday, and 50% the opacity, and moved it around a few times to make sure it woks on mobile etc. It seems to, need to test more ______
  15. Moved 37-4X to Page 2, so that there arent so many swiped up needed to look at the cards, and then played arund with other stuff. (spelling sucks)
  16. Added a line under Most Popular Podcasts, but cant get it to move with out messing up the rest of it. Will erase other stuff so there are less duplicates, but might keep.
  17. Soon will change the icons for everything to the new Logo. Facebook etc.
  18. Ran 4 Miles today, thank goodness, excellent butrrito@ Macho Taco. damn was that good.
