    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…

    It’s Friday, it must be time for the Biscuit… Does your heroin lose it’s glamour on the washboad overnight? When your mother says Don’t do it, do you crack it up in spite? Do you rob your brother’s Giro, do you talk a load of shite? Does your…

  • Rich Tea

    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”] . …

    Some stupid fun for a Friday afternoon: Bond Films They Should Have Made. And some more Biscuit: I’ve got fur in my kettle and a film on my tea;

  • No mention of mark-up

    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…

  • Swiss cheese?

    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…

  • John Peel 1939–2004

    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…
