NEW BOT MONDAY: Super Electromagnetic Machine Voltes V. My most favorite Bot of all. ボルテス are the first Japanese ideograms I ever copied onto paper. Predates Voltron, with which it is confused, by 6 or 7 years. Famously banned by the dictatorial Marcos regime because of revolutionary ideas. Beloved by Filipinos of a certain age. Voltes V is the bot that made me fall in love with bots. Those toys are too highly priced to buy, but this one is a fine interim purchase.

I came across Font Awesome (@fontawesome on twitter) the other day helping out a pal on a project. How had I not heard of this? It’s a rather nice web font that includes lots of glyphs. You can use them by adding their library and adding a bit of markup. I made a little explorer to experiment with the various classes you might want to add to make the icons bigger, align differently, spin, rotate, what-have-you. Check it out in the lab.
