pretty in pink

So, a new layout for the blog - I was playing. It does not work in Internet Explorer and I'm too damn lazy to take the time to fix it. The new IE7 (javascript solution) will be out next week, I'll tack it onto my header template so IE people can read the site in a …

Revenge of the Sith buzz is ...GOOD?

He got a standing ovation at Cannes, the movie reviews are positive, and it's said Steven Spielberg helped out so the film won't suck... do we finally have a GOOD prequel star wars movie? I'll hold my breath, but I won't get to see it until Saturday, since it's the last few weeks of school I …

Those who make you work...

If you look at the bottom of slashdot you'll notice you get a rather random quote from their database when you visit. Some are very good, some of very bad, but today's had me thinking of the past.

Chronicles of Riddick

A little rant/love note this morning for one of my favorite movies - Chronicles of Riddick. First of all, my perception of the film is probably forever colored because 1. I didn't see pitch black until I bought all three movies and watched them in a row, I didn't see any of the three in theaters. …

More fun with webcomics

I get these little "binges" where I go out and run around the net looking for fanfiction and webcomics when I get bored - so for today, some really good webcomics.

why I like firefox

Why do I like firefox, and open source in general so much? A security flaw is found in firefox (yeah, they happen, they're actually rather expected) Secunia says - this is a very bad thing

Ajax summit for the few, the proud...the invited

Rebellion - DRAFT 2

rebellion is starting to take shape now, and I've decided it will only be "released" here until I've finished it in it's entirety, too many annoying fans get pissed at my slowness - see if you can figure out who's who, i give physical clues in each "scene"

Oh I am SUCH a geek...

Googlefight is my new late night fun - type in a couple of words and see which gets more google hits is the basic idea, but it's damn funny all the same.

Subversion php binding stuff on a roll

I love alan and wez - no I mean it.

Phar - php's jar

Although the performance isn't perfect yet phar is alive - personally I'd like to see this implemented right in php instead of as a pear class...but that's just me.

Docs for xhtml 1.1

Documentation for xhtml 1.1 has often eluded me, but this is a nice way to see what is where and what's deprecated without losing my mind

Dom documentation in two flavors

I really hate IE - I can use the wonderful mozilla dom reference but of course IE doesn't do it right so I have to use Internet Explorer's version
