Attempting daily posts, Color Pickers, and other stuff

I’m not sure that I’ll always have something that’s awesome to read about, or that I’ll even be able to make posts daily, but I’ll try. I figure it shouldn’t be too hard, seeing as I check FGL, GMail, twitter, facebook– and every other service hourly.
