Moon Emoji Reviews

apple, producing the classic new moon with a face. he has such a smooth face, with baby like skin, and eyes as deep as the ocean, its hard to not get lost in his forever gaze. if you stare too long though, you will swear you can feel his human lips brush against your ear. 7/10


google’s interpretation is very friendly, welcoming. his big round nose reminds me of a papa cartoon character, and is, therefore, very easy on the eyes and lovable. although the eyes are a tad blank, and frightful. 6/10

microsoft takes an interesting take on the moon - it appears to look more like a stale cookie, or like spongebob’s parents. his feline type nose throws me off… hes throwing mixed signals… this is not a moon, but a beast of the night, taunting, lurking. 4/10

samsung… oh samsung… what did you do? you’ve turned microsofts cookie moon beast into a cgi monster, with soft features, similar to that of apple’s. maybe this would be better if he didn’t have those patronized glints in his eyes. 3/10

LG has taken an interesting turn. this moon is… curious… and content, but you can clearly see the pain behind his eyes. his eyes are deep. lurking. a man of mystery. 5/10

what a happy face!! i feel delighted to see this moon on my screen. he is doing great, but not quite giving off the look that this emoji is supposed to represent. he is wonderful though anyways. 8/10.

what an interesting buddy! Facebook has taken a different path, while taking time to accentuate each and every crevice and curve of this moon’s surface. a beautiful boy, with caressing eyes. 7/10

a very calm moon. i feel calm looking at it. it is doing a wonderful job on conveying the night times sleep appeal. it is not doing a great job as the original emoji purposes, but is conveying a different emotion entirely. what a beautiful and intricate boy. a work of art. 10/10

i didn’t think there could be a better moon emoji than the original, but i stand corrected. what a 🌚  emoji. the empty stare takes the cake. 7/10

mozilla does a nice job at creating a unique yet form fitting moon face emoji. nothing to call home about though. he looks too eager to be here… what is he planning… 4/10

… an… interesting… take… terrifying, yes. calming, also yes. i’m not sure how to feel about the immense detail upon this ones face. a solid 5/10 should be okay… although i know that i should give this emoji a higher rating, or else it will come to me tonight and look at me through the window, open mouthed breathing, gently fogging up the window glass around it.

SWEET CHRIST ALLMIGHTLY WHAT THE FUCKING HELL IS THYIS. THIS IS NOT A MOON I CAN TRUST. THIS IS NOT A MOON I CAN RETAIN EYE CONTACT WITH. 0/10!!!!

official ranking of every dog emoji on emojipedia 🐕

A beautiful shibe. A good boy who wants to shake a paw. 10/10 would shake

A cute little pupper. Possibly wearing some sort of doggy earmuffs because it’s winter and his ears get cold. You do you lil pupper! Stay warm out there! 10/10 would cuddle to warm up

A handsome doggo going for a walk. Don’t know what happened to his other front leg, but he seems happy. 10/10 would give belly rubs.

Looks like a plastic dog toy, except the head was swapped with a different larger plastic dog toy and just popped on. 10/10 would still play with.

Looks like a fridge magnet. I like the tail floof though. 10/10 would put on my fridge

Cave painting doggo. 15000BCE/10

Somebody just told this dog that he’s a good boy. And they’d be right, he is. 10/10

Simple, not really realistic, but gets the point across. Looks like it was designed by a child. 10/10 would draw in elementary school.

A cute little fella doing his thing. 10/10

Adorable! 10/10 blep, would give many head pats and ear scratches

Ready for anything. 10/10 would go hiking/camping in the mountains with.

My Senior, IE-kun humanhead version

I only made ones for the first five designed browsers.  So These are the only five I can make human headed versions. ok :)

Please look out for more characters! Like Netscape, Vivaldi, ‘Spartan’, Mosaic etc etc…

is anyone else having issues with mozilla not wanting to load your dashboard? the page loads and everything is fine except that the images never load. and if they do, its random :\ i get on internet explorer and everything works great. BUT I DON’T LIKE USING IE FOR MANY REASONS AND ONE IS BECAUSE I CAN’T USE MY XkIt!! :( <3 i tried disabling xkit to see if it was that and its not, sooo :\

Unpaywall finds free versions of paywalled papers
"New tool joins a growing collection of software for accessing fee-for-view scientific literature."

“An online widget that trawls the Internet searching for free-to-read versions of paywalled papers has been installed more than 10,000 times since its prerelease debut on 10 March, its inventors say. 

Officially launched on 4 April, Unpaywall is a free web-browser extension that hunts for papers in more than 5,300 repositories worldwide, including preprint servers and institutional databases.

Once installed in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, Unpaywall brings up a green or grey tab on the side of the screen when a user hits a paywalled paper. A green ‘unlock’ sign means that a free version of the paper is available elsewhere, whereas a grey ‘lock’ icon means that the tool could not locate a free version.” - Dalmeet Singh Chawla, Nature.com

    「   THEME #015: DYNAMENE by angelicxi   」
    ↳ [  preview  /  codes  ]
    ❥ the link to the code is in the sidebar desc.

Summer is such a terribly hot season, isn’t it? My constant need to hidrate inspired DYNAMENE’s design: sleek, clean, but still packing a little “kick”. Named for one of the nereids (Dynamene and her twin were said to spin and roll the waves), this theme is indeed divine — what’s more, this is a low-effort immortality, as the design is easily accessible to all types of blogs and easily customizable =] .


FEATURES
[ + ]  500px posts;
[ + ]  left sidebar;
[ + ]  a title slot, which can be changed separately from your blog title via the customization panel;
[ + ]  subtitle slot, similarly editable via the customization panel;
[ + ]  a description slot — I strongly suggest keeping it to four lines, as shown in the preview;
[ + ]  NB: keep in mind that you have an inbuilt description slot in your customization panel that is separate from tumblr’s. I chose to add it in since tumblr is so prone to glitching, and people reported disappearing or missing descriptions as a result;
[ + ]  the menu comes with a twist — the fontawesome icons that define each link become see-through with a little bit of CSS magic, allowing us to peek underneath! (don’t worry if you want to change the default ones and still keep the effect, it’s easy and there are instructions within the code itself n.n)
tip: if the menu doesn’t show up at first, refresh. it happens on first loads.
[ + ]  speaking of links, you have home, ask, + 3 extra slots;
[ + ]  plain color background option;
[ + ]  gradient background option;
[ + ]  full wallpaper background option (make sure it’s at least 1366x768 pixels ! ).
tip: tumblr is, as previously stated, very glitchy. in order for all the on/off options to work right, turn everything off first, and then turn on those that you want active.

I’m working on a project, clearing the ten-ish years of email archives out of my gmail, since my email takes up a full 12 gigs of the 15 gigs I’m allowed. Because I don’t want to read every email individually (and I know I’ve deleted most of those I would like to delete) I looked up methods of archiving Gmail accounts wholesale. 

It turns out one of the more effective solutions for non-programmers is to install the Mozilla Thunderbird email client, hook it up to Gmail, download everything into Thunderbird, and then use an archival add-on to save it to your hard drive. But in order to do that, you do have to download everything into Thunderbird first. It’s an automated process, you just click “All Mail” and watch it go, but it still takes time. Which is why I am currently on message three thousand of roughly a hundred and three thousand emails. 

When our generation begins to leave our papers to libraries and universities, it’s gonna get real interesting real fast, you guys. 

comprehensive rating of every octopus emoji

for your reading pleasure

the ratings are off to a notably curvy and rounded start.  not sure what’s going on with those eyes, but this octopus is making up for it with a very generous squish quotient.  7/10; would pet

such zazz!  such a definitive swagger!  i am particularly endeared to that ‘raise the roof’ gesture he’s got going on with his arms.  excellent octopus.  very good indeed.  10/10; would throw a party with

ah, the full-frontal approach to octopus imagery.  that classic octopus head shape is very well-represented here.  a good, solid octopus for all your octopus needs.  8/10; would introduce to my parents

to be perfectly frank, i’m ambivalent.  there’s some unfortunate shading going on here and all i can see is a rubbery pink stick-man with a disproportionate head wearing a cape.  despite it all, i can’t bring myself to say mean things about this octopus; she has a vivacious charm to her.  3/10; would give points for effort

i’m pretty sure this isn’t what an octopus looks like.  nice try.  1/10; would maybe wear as a novelty hat in an emergency

a wonderful and pleasing octopus.  htc is really shaking it up with these cool colours.  her eyes are wide with childlike wonder.  9/10; would read a bedtime story to

i cannot say a single bad thing about this octopus.  he is anatomically correct and possesses a lightness of spirit; an inexorable zest for life.  a swell guy and a fantastic cephalopod. 12/10; would leave him all my worldly possessions and wisdom in the event of my death, whenever that day shall fall

the manic pixie dream girl of the octopus emojis.  the many curls and spirals of her arms hold within themselves undeniable cosmic truths and wise tidbits of advice.  points earned for those delightful purple shades.  10/10; would go on a life-changing roadtrip with

twitter has gone for a unique twist in taking the cirrate octopod approach to octopus imagery- a roaring success in octopuses such as the dumbo and the flapjack- but have fallen short.  where are his little ears?  he needs those little ears.  give him the ears.  6/10; would fashion him a pair of little ears to wear

heavens to betsy!  what happened to his arm? why is it so long?  the poor baby looks so bewildered.  2/10; would subject mozilla to a brutal interrogation as to avenge this poor boy’s honour

remarkably angular for an octopus.  it’s lacking that important element of squish.  has a lovely, albeit biologically impossible, winning smile though.  5/10; would not criticise to their face

this is a shiny one.  on a closer look, her skin glistens with visions of half-remembered dreams.  her beguiling eyes and exuberant mouth-thing are only there for a false sense of security.  a very mysterious octopus.  where is she from?  8/10; would see in glimpses on the backs of my eyelids whenever i blink

      A follow up to Selene & Serenity, this small pack consisting of a theme and an about page was built around a solar motif. The idea behind the theme was illumination — a focus on content. To this end, you have 500px and 700px post width options, and the avatar, title, description and social media buttons were moved to an on-click modal window in order to clear up space. For the page, I wanted to accentuate the softness of daylight, and as such I kept the preview to very soft tones of gray.
      Neither of them was coded with a specific blogger type in mind; I daresay (hope) the theme is rather versatile. As such, I hope everyone can enjoy it! And as always, issues go into my inbox


      「   THEME #017: SOLARIS by angelicxi   」

      tip: if the icons don’t show up at first, roll your mouse up & down over their slots.

     「   THEME #007: VITRALIS by angelicxi   」

    ↳ [ static preview ]
    ❥ the link to the code is contained within the preview.

Vitralis is a sleek, clean container theme with sidebars on both sides. Inspired equal parts by stained glass windows and Alphonse Mucha’s artwork, I wanted it to have a simple feeling, despite being elaborately crafted and equipped. It comes with features I have been asked about in the past — such as slots for descriptions (which morning glory lacked, being far more simplistic) and a music player (which some people have been nagging me about for a while now). I hope everyone enjoys it. ^^

F E A T U R E S :

— plain color background; you can change it to a texture (just upload a picture) or a full wallpaper (remember to go and change the properties under body! add: “background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: cover”, without the quote marks. ideal wallpaper size would be 1900 x 1200);
500px posts;
two sidebars with display set on-hover, as seen in the preview;
— slot for an avatar (105 x 105);
— slot for a blog title;
— home & ask + 3 extra link slots;
— slot for a description;
— a billy music player;
even more description space on the left, structured like a column. It can be used as an update tab, or simply to make things more fanciful. Use the h4 tags for the titles, and don’t worry about taking up too much space - a scrollbar will appear here as well. ^^
