So, who likes that new Y! nav bar on Flickr?

Yeah, that’s what I thought. There’s a lot going on in the Flickr interface as it is. Adding a garish purple Yahoo! bar across the top just sends my eyes in to fits. So here’s a bit of CSS that’ll hide nav bar in its current incarnation: body.with-eyebrow #eyebrow { display: none; } body.with-eyebrow { […]

I don’t mean to badmouth WordPress when I say this, but if you deploy a WordPress based site without optimizing your install you’re just asking for a slow site.

Safari 3 Beta

So, while the Safari 3 beta is nice in many ways, and showing much promise on Windows, I was disappointed to find out that it still required a trip to the terminal to turn on the Inspector element. So, if you want to check out elements in a page and how they’re styled open up […]

Well, that was easy…

For a while here at work I’d been struggling with the best way to deliver content to Excel users so they could further manipulate or repurpose the data. The best thing I’d found had been to deliver an Excel content header on a tab deliniated string of data from the database. Well, in a stroke […]

HTML Formatting with TextEdit

I imagine that I’m not alone in my job duties of having to format long passages of text into html for inclusion in a web site. A lot of time can be wasted hand formatting lots of text with tables and lists. I was pretty surprised when I found that TextEdit in OS X 10.4 […]

Text editors galore

IE 7: this is a little disappointing

The Internet Explorer 7 seems to be a basic functionality release. All the talk on the IE Blog about standards compatability didn’t seem to leak its way into this release.

Preparing for fully compliant XHTML

Well, I’m playing around with delivering actual xml content for xml aware browsers, or maybe I should say I’m playing around with delivering xml content to everybody but IE, and am realizing how much I don’t know about xhtml.
