My Diagram Secrets Exposed!

Yes, I’m still alive!

It’s been like what, six months now without blogging?! Now that’s something not cool and I really need to do something about it.

It will all come back and reflect on my future blog posts in a way or another, so I can’t really complain!

But I’m not here to talk about that. I’ve just came across something really cool and I wanted to share with you right away.

Anyways, I highly recommend reading that article and don’t forget to grab the .VSS stencils file provided by the author. As a matter of fact, I’ve learned a new trick from the “Cloud” shape! I just enhanced it a bit to look like that:

P.S. thank you Jake, you just made my day 😀
