Jakob’s latest rant is his Top Ten Guidelines for Homepage Usability which, while providing useful food for thought, is a desperately transparent plug for his latest book (blast: there’s another plug). Personally I would recommend the Home Page chapter of Steve…

You won’t be hearing from me for a few days, so have yourself a terrific Christmas (happy holidays, fab festive season, whatever is PC this year) and a great New Year. And remember these wise words from the Biscuit: You moan at the snow

There’s a really interesting post on Creating Passionate Users right now: it explains how seeing Radiohead play live – for one fan – changed how she listens to, and hears the album Kid A. I had a similar experience.

I’ve added ‘remember me’ to blog comments. I haven’t asked, it just does it; is that bad? Anyway, with PHP, it was ridiculously easy. Set the cookie with setcookie(“author”,$author, time()+2592000,”/”) and retrieve it with $author=$_COOKIE[“author”] . …

I’m living in a hard water town.
But I don’t let it get me down.[spoken]
Should any man wish to make himself…
It’s Friday! Biscuit time…
Breeze is an elegant new minimalist theme for Mozilla. Googlebar is another great add-in from mozdev (source of the afore-mentioned Checky). It’s just like the IE Google toolbar, but for Mozilla. I’m a bit of a foodie, so it won’t come as much…
I enjoy minimal design, and I also believe that, for the majority of commercial and otherwise meaningful sites on the Web, that is exactly what is required. But minimal design to me, does not mean no graphics, no Flash, etc. If these elements are seen to add to the experience…
I think it’s high time I told you about my new book; or rather our book, Blog Design Solutions.

More Friday banter from the Biscuit: I should have just got a job on the bins.

That I know what rhetorical means.I could have been like Lou Barlow,
But I’m more like Ken…
Thanks to this fine piece of huffduffing I’m reminded that there hasn’t been a Biscuit Friday for over four years. Consider that rectified.
I love this current poster campaign from the British Heart Foundation.
Super Furry Animals, the best band in Britain, have released the three track Slow Life EP as a free download.
Even now I don’t know who I was talking to and he didn’t know me, but he did know my name, phone number and presumably my address. He also knew that I had a Belkin router and NTL broadband. How?
My favourite fifty albums of the Noughties.
A teasingly brief piece in Wired wherein Thurston Moore waxes lyrical about mix tapes and their progeny.
John Peel has died. This brings me great sadness. A legend if ever there was one, Peel’s gentle patter and eclectic (and loud) music kept me company through many a long drive and Winter evening. The whole point of John Peel’s radio shows were freedom – freedom…

This Easter weekend I managed to spend some quality time alone with my hi-fi and some choice vinyl. At the time I put together a list of stuff to buy – help me choose.
I always forget these little rules, but they are worth remembering in all forms of writing.
My brother, a graphic designer, decided that the colours I use on Cuzza.com needed to be a bit more curry-ey. So he kindly came up with some hot & spicy swatches based upon curry products, Indian cookery books and colour theory books. And made this a super page to display…
I’m extremely proud to say my esteemed colleague, Jeremy Keith, has finished his latest book, Bulletproof Ajax. Jeremy is also running an Ajax training workshop to coincide with the book launch.
