Modest Mouse

Another one of those things that is simple and handmade. Just awesome work by Max Tyrie. Video’s like this is where our culture of all things web really shines. Big ideas and big gestures make way for some of the smaller, simpler things in life. Like a handmade video for a Modest Mouse video competition.

Statistics, modern browsers here we come

Safari is the third browser on the net, has been for a while now. My own site, the one you’re looking at now has Safari as the third browser also. However I don’t look at browsers that way. I’m looking forward to the day that I’ll only write for modern browsers. When breaking down the stats for modern browsers Safari is still third, but Internet Explorer 6 is forth.

Field Music - In Context

Every now and then I see something that I’ve seen before but in a ever so slightly different way that makes me go, “oh, wow”.

HTML Working Group

I find it strange that while I have actively promoted CSS for almost a decade, HTML has rarely been my focus. Good clean semantic HTML always seemed to be a self evident truth. However, to my dismay I see that CSS is picking up and that HTML is not really improving. This has to change. So I’ve decided to roll up my sleeves to get my hands dirty as an invited expert in the W3C’s HTML Working Group. Now that I’ve been accepted they will definitely be hearing from me.

CSS Reset

I’ve been reading, to my surprise, the positive reactions on resetting or rather zeroing CSS for crossbrowser conformity. I’ve had pretty much the opposite experience when I started writing resets years ago. A lot has changed since then so taking another look at the technique is certainly worth it. Especially when you consider the fact that by the end of 2008 we won’t need level A support for Internet Explorer 6. However, one must keep in mind that the inherent problems with resetting remain.

6bit laptop

I’m happy with my new laptop, which is now almost four months old. I’m happy with the dual core Intel chip inside. I’m happy with the 3 GB of RAM I have installed. It’s fast (2.33 GHz), it’s sleek and it runs Window’s. I’ll just have to live with the crappy 6bit screen. Or maybe not…

Back online

It’s been very quite on the site for a while. Well, actually, it’s been much more than a while. My previous post was one year ago. A lot has happened since then. A new job, and then another and my girlfriend moved in.

10 ways

Great pictures from Getty Images given the interaction treatment by designers. If you’ve got a minute “10 ways” is certainly worth your while. The poor site construction really lets the whole project down though.

A real keyboard

As an avid Mac user I’ve always had problems with the mouse and the keyboard. I have never been very happy with either, ever since the move to PowerPC the keyboards have kinda took a nosedive, hitting rock bottom during the ‘hockey puck’ mouse era. Also all these modern PC input devices are not that much better. Until I came across the Customizer 104/105 via an article on Mark Pilgims website. The thing is ugly as sin, but still, it’s A REAL KEYBOARD. It made me consider going Windows / Linux fulltime! Well, okay, almost.

Ordered List, I give up.

I have known about the problem for a while now, but today I had to make my decision on where I stand. Whether to use the html list attributes ‘start’ and ‘value’ or not.
