Updates: Subscription! Store! Speed!

I am immensely pleased to have finished a minor (yet significant) redesign, two days away from FYPK’s first birthday. There’s not a whole lot of changes visually, aside from a new logo and new fonts, but there are a lot of smaller, significant changes such as…

Responsive Design

Grab the corner of your browser window and resize it. Watch what happens. Cool, right? The smaller designs are so that mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones have the same site design as a full-scale desktop browser.

Subscription

It took me far too long to implement this, but there’s finally a FYPK newsletter. Sign up below or in the sidebar to receive the latest articles, updates, and other things-that-are-not-spam.

Bonus: There’s a big big big announcement coming in the next two or three months that will be announced first via newsletter.

Store

Lots of goodies going on here. Head on over to see how it works and what’s in it.

Speediness!

[Note: the speed won't kick in for a day or so.]

I did a lot of technical work to make FYPK run faster and smoother. I won’t bore you with the details, just enjoy the speed.


Now there may be a few (or a lot) of bugs happening, so please bear with me as I work them all out. Email me if you find anything outstandingly bad – or good!

Ollo Sapien Review

Ollo Sapien

The Kickstarter-funded Ollo Sapien shoes have a huge amount of potential. The idea of a shoe funded by the community and designed by professionals who also practice parkour is immensely appealing. Do the Sapiens live up to their potential? Not exactly… But with some work, they could.

Weekly Video Showcase 50: The Philosophy Edition

For Weekly Video Showcase number 50, I wanted something more than the usual video of run-jump-flip-spin-run-jump-flip-roll-run. You can find that in any of the other 49 editions of the WVS. Today, not quite a year since FYPK was founded, we’re taking a look at the sometimes surprisingly deep philosophy behind the discipline of parkour.
