A Fashionable Thursday v6

To make up for the lack of fashionable content last week, I’ll extend today’s version slightly longer.

I’ve recently read that it often hurts a project when announced with promises to build and produce. I think I’ve done that to myself. Right after AFTv1 I started thinking of ways to expand it.

The project isn’t dead but it hasn’t moved in some time. My own fault. I am a victim of my own doing, struggling to find the right balance of form to go with function. In English, I can’t settle on a design I like and I don’t want to launch it looking like it just had a nose job.

Enough with the boring stories.
