Web Design & Front-end development

Don’t touch my screen!

Litterally I laughed out load. Because it’s true! Nick Fruhling says it strait: “Touch a designer’s computer screen, and you will lose. Always.” Via Daring Fireball.

Touch my screen and worse may happen!

Firefox hardsell

Anybody ever pick up on the Firefox Kill Bill spoof? The Exporer Destroyer? The code sucks big time but even being a hoax / scam the idea has some merit. Especially with IE7 coming. I’ve put a version of the Try Firefox banner with that ‘Get Firefox with Google toolbar’ button alongside an Explorer 7 button. Despite some reservations by others I’ve never been very convinced by any intended ill will from Google, even from Microsoft for that matter. So why not promote both? Also, I’ve not added the AdSense ‘scam’ code. I’ve added a cookie so that little bugger doesn’t keep on coming back.

UPDATED: Added the IE7 button.

Google goofs

Quoting Jason Goldman, Blogger Product Manager from their Google blog:

Update: We’ve determined the cause of tonight’s outage. The blog was mistakenly deleted by us (d’oh!) which allowed the blog address to be temporarily claimed by another user. This was not a hack, and nobody guessed our password. Our bad.

It happens to the best of us. Google admits it because admitting the error right off the bat shows that they’re not just an online juggernaut. They’re just humans trying their best not to do evil. I like this side of big co-operations, and we’re seeing more and more of this pragmatic approach.

IE7 nearing completion

In 2003 I made a little CSS Zen Garden called Gemination that has been well received well by those in the know when it comes to web standards. I made the design with compatibility in mind allowing for enhanced features in the browsers of the day. Never using hacks that are in violation of the W3C specifications. Because when you do you know you’re going to have to fix it at some point. IE7 is starting to shape up.

Site engine updated

The site was offline for a while. I was updating the CMS / weblog engine. Expression Engine 1.4.1 is now what makes this site go. This little puppy puts many a in house CMS to shame. Are you screwing over your customers?

The web today

Google has posted their research on how sites are coded. HTML tolerance has created havoc with the quality of the web today. Common sense hasn’t prevailed either. Time to take a look at my own templates.

the slippery slope

Just read this article on the CNET news site.

Demand for the browser on Apple’s new CPU platform is expected to rocket as the PC vendor last week started selling the first Macs based on CPUs from Intel. Previously Apple had used IBM’s PowerPC chips.

Apple is now being referred to as a ‘PC vendor’. Well, that didn’t take very long now did it?
