We’re looking for an amazing icon designer

We actually found a designer whose work we really liked (at first), but he kept disappearing for over a week at a time. About 2-3 weeks after the deadline, we called it off, and here I am again. I’ve got a list of portfolios to browse through this weekend, but I figured I’d ask here in case an amazing icon designer or his/her friend stumbles across this post. :)

I’m looking for someone who could churn out a beautiful application icon for YNAB 3 so that people would be proud to have it sitting in their Mac Dock. We’ve got a couple of other rich icons to design too, but if they can make a beautiful application icon, the others should be no sweat.

Anyone got a recommendation? Feel free to comment here or to email me. My email is taytay _at_ taytay com.

Stop browsing through your workspace – Find and open files quickly in Flex Builder/Eclipse

EDIT: Turns out that I could just hit CTRL-SHIFT-R this whole time, so feel free to ignore the rest of this post. Thanks to Harald, Dusty, and Ryan for pointing that out. ;)

If you use Flex Builder or Eclipse on a regular basis, and you want to be faster at development, I can’t recommend the “GotoFile Eclipse Plugin” enough!
If you know the same of a file you want to open, or even just substring of the file name, this plugin lets you quickly find it without browsing through your Workspace. Just type a few characters, hit return, and you’re off! Our YNAB 3 workspace has hundreds of files, so this is a real time saver.

In my previous life as a .NET developer, I used Whole Tomato’s Visual Studio plugin to give me a similar feature and was excited to find this one! Thanks Muermann!
