kylesnav asked: I've been tweaking your theme as a minimalist template for my blog, if you look in to the source I made some things more efficient (probably ruining more in the process). I made sure to give credit in my footer. But, do you have any suggestions on how I could make it a bit more... design-y?
adrcc2 asked: hi... what's with the audio posts that require Flash ? and why are we having 20 twitter posts now ? please don't leave Handsome Code down :((
secretplacesofthelion asked: Hello, I've been using your theme and I love it! However, my whole page is based off of audio embeds and for some reason they've stopped working. I've tried other machines. I've updated flash. Nothing is correcting it. When I switch to another theme the audio plays fine. Any ideas? Thanks. Jon
tadpulse asked: Maybe I'm being selfish, or wanting too much. You see the thing is that I've fallen in love with your Accent theme, which of course is free ..., which is amazing. I've tried so many themes before this one, but always felt like they just weren't quite what I was looking for. Then I found Accent and it was love at first *site*.

Dudes, Tyler didn’t even attend high school. The only programming I’ve learned was when I finally got out of school. I’d say our current educational system makes it harder to learn to program (i.e. solve problems with logic, reason, and research.) because a) grades aren’t motivating b) money is and c) most learning is from screwing around, playing, which is definitely not...

Before I met Tyler I listened to one of his mixes on 8tracks that got insanely popular due to strange internet viral loops. Sometimes I go back to that mix not to listen to the music, but to just read the recent comments. Here are some good ones: “Roll a joint? HA HA! Love the idea :)” “roll a joint……i already did” “this is great. i just want to be high...
