Whoops, it’s been a while. Still alive. A few things flying across my radar lately:
- CSS Problem Solving Survey
One of the SXSW panels I’m sitting on this year needs some help from you. Got a particularly thorny CSS problem? Go tell us about it, and we might have a solution for you in March. Ethan Marcotte has more information about the panel.
Speaking of SXSW, if you haven’t booked your hotel/flight by now, um, see you next year.
- Yahoo Does Something Wonderful
And finally, something which is sure to become an instant favourite amongst those who argue for/against bending over backwards to support specific browsers, Yahoo’s Graded Browser Support and their corresponding Support Chart. Practical, well-explained guidelines that you can use immediately, as put out by a major technology company — print them out, give them to your clients or boss, and rest easy. Yahoo’s done the tough explaining for you. Fantastic.
- IE7 Beta 2 Preview
- Not beta 2. Beta 2 preview. Meaning, expect a lot of change, and more preview releases, before the final version of IE7. Eric Meyer/Douglas Adams said it best: don’t panic.
- Unitless line-heights
- Speaking of Eric Meyer, check out this explanation of
line-height. I had no idea. (This is the same bug I wrote about in October, mind you.)
- Last night I caught a technology preview of this new mobile service. It’s still pretty beta, but in a nutshell: Skype on your mobile phone. ie., never pay another cent to your long distance carrier. Lots of caveats at the moment, but definitely one to watch.
- Photoshop transform handles out of reach
- Once again, Veerle has an Adobe tip that’s going to save me a lot of time. No more zooming out to 8.25%.
- NetDiver Best of the Year, 2005
- Pure design inspiration.
