TouchGraph GoogleBrowser is a fantastic Java-based tool for visualising Google:related results. The automatic labelling is impressive in itself (the algorithm appears to work in realtime) and all the nodes are clickable to provide more information. Nice to see Clagnut has…
I’ve been shortlisted for the Brighton & Hove Virtual Festival Web Awards 2003.
As in previous years, Clagnut has been lucky enough to be nominated in the Best Personal Site and Blogs category of the Brighton and Hove Web Awards 2006. Voting closes on Wednesday 8 November so hurry along and vote!
The 5k competition is back! So go enter those tiny sites. (Super Letraset-stylee design btw Caterina.) Oh and super-duper photos are now online here at clagnut. There’s a rndom sample for you just there. You can see more of them at clagnut.com/photos. (Yes I will get…
Clagnut went missing but now it’s partially back.
Interesting article on how the London Underground presents a metaphor for information architecture. Nicely presented too. Get your clagnut fix. You can now sign up for the less than monthly clagnut newsletter. Summer has finally arrived so I’m off down the beach.
If you are on the market for a beautifully restored 1969 MGB Roadster, then friend and colleague, Darren, would love to hear from you. Full details and price are available online.
Multimap is hiring. If you fancy working in London for a small, friendly company and are skilled in Perl, Unix/Linux, Oracle/MySQL, XML, OOP/OOD and maybe a bit of GIS then please send us your CV or resumé. Stereolab have a really original way of presenting their…
Clagnut is featured as a Star Site in Practical Web Design magazine and @media 2006 is announced.
Search engine added!
The clagnut RSS syndication feed thing has arrived!
Over at metaGarbage, clagnut is one of Johan Svensson’s daily cups of tea. It’s always a proud moment when one is linked from folks’ homepages, but in this instance I’m even more chuffed given the select company clagnut has been placed with: Boing Boing,
So taken was I with Pixelsurgeon’s invalid plight (as mentioned in the previous post) that I decided to rebuild the interview page using meaningful XHTML and CSS for all layout and presentation. The markup now validates to XHTML 1.0 and is much more useful, employing…
Google has 136 references to the phrase “ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long”. 137 by the time it gets around to indexing this page, assuming it ever does. [and 12 hours later it’s indexed] Oh, and someone should ban the use of spray deodorants,…
British Sea Power gave an awesome peformance which was a fitting finale to a fantastic three nights.
The way I’ve coded the Clagnut CSS shows up a bug in IE6 Win. All the left and right margins (actually padding) around my text are doubled in width for no apparent reason. In fact it’s not even that straightforward – the page isn’t rendered consistently…
As last year, Clagnut has been lucky enough to be nominated in Personal category of the Brighton and Hove Virtual Festival Web Awards 2004. You can vote for Clagnut here. I’m up against Adactio and Chris Eubank (yes, the Chris Eubank) amongst others, so I guess my…
Technorati recently released cool charty goodness for any keyword search, and what’s more you can post the graphs right into your blog. And then there’s egoSurf.
Seven months late, it?s Friday Biscuit time again. And welcome to the Amazon switcher.
A couple of days ago I was stuck at Brighton railway station, watching trains get delayed and eventually cancelled. While sat on the concourse I noticed the sheer amount of CCTV and various surveillance devices in plain view all around the station.
You may have noticed that Clagnut was down for most of last week. The culprits were referrer spam robots maxing out my database connections, resulting in my ISP putting my account on hold.
I’ve just come back from three days in Ljubljana, Slovenia – a surprise Christmas present from Her Indoors.
I’ve just had an email back from the ISSN UK Centre, once more turning down my request for an ISSN for Clagnut.
I’m tired; stiff and tired. Over Saturday night and into Sunday morning, I joined friends on the Dunwich Dynamo, a 120 mile night ride from Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. It was to be the longest ride any of us had cycled in one day.

Rubhub is an XFN relationship lookup engine for determining the relationships between people who author personal websites. As such it is the first application to make use of XFN.
Mozilla 1.0. Stick a fork in it. It’s done and looking good. Posted a few pikkies from the Mini Rally recently held in Brighton. Check out those wonderfully ridiculous chopped cars – why have a small car when you can have a tiny one? Like me, Owen Briggs has been…
Link toolbar is an excellent Firefox extension replicating the Site Navigation Toolbar in Mozilla.
By the miracle of coincidence, the latest issue of Digital Web has a fine article describing the issues I tried to overcome with the Clagnut drop-down menu, as discussed in my previous post.
Underworld recently put out some 12” singles and I’m loving the type-based artwork.
I recently started listing Google search terms with each blog post. This was done as a matter of interest, but it had an unintentional effect: the search terms fed back into Google and boosted my page rank. I explain the feedback process.
Today, April 5th, is CSS Naked Day. This means that if you are reading this on the website and not via RSS, what you are seeing is Clagnut with the CSS stripped off.
In acknowlegement of CSS Reboot I have created Clagnut 2.0 beta in which I have started exploring APIs and thinking more about tagging.
I think it’s high time I told you about my new book; or rather our book, Blog Design Solutions.
I make no excuse for this piece of flagrant trumpet blowing. Eric Meyer writes: How have I gone this long without encountering Clagnut ? It’s the kind of design that I can sort of vaguely see in my head when I sit down to do something, but when I do it, the end result…
Over in MacCentral there’s a few interesting thoughts from Marc Andreessen on why he thinks the browser wars are long gone and how divergence of browsing applications across different platforms is inevitable. Although quite how both the interviewer and Andreessen manage…
Well it’s the usual reason – so much stuff, so little time. There’s two projects, two books and then my arch nemesis pops up.
It seems that some of the images on Clagnut are being rendered as skinny strips in Safari 1.2. I’m confused as to why.
I’m back from Morzine and there are photos. Sorry I haven’t posted for while but things have been super hectic at work. Normal should resume shortly.
Those of you using quality browsers other than IE PC may have noticed the rather fetching drop shadow on said popup. This is PNG’s alpha transparency at work folks. While supported natively in Mozilla, Opera and IE for Mac, IE PC requires an ActiveX plugin which I decided…
The new W3C Validator has come out of beta and released unto the world. There is an improved UI and loads of links to the Specs, as well as help, documentation, tips and improved accessibility (accesskeys a-plenty). There also seems to have been a few changes to the…
Wow, what an evening. I spent the whole evening in the Hanbury Ballroom – a great little venue two streets away from my house. I was really looking forward to this night and I wasn’t disappointed.
List of all the platforms tested for the reformulation of clagnut.
My transparencies and scans have finally come back from Fuji Processing. I’ve added my favourite shots to the Geekend gallery.
Widgets on my Mac OS X dashboard.
Flickr badges don’t show photo titles, so I turned to a simple bit of DOM scripting for a solution.
You are now looking at the new formulation of clagnut. The underlying HTML has swapped for more meaningful markup and the resulting style sheets completely rewritten. So far I’ve only tested on Mozilla and IE6 on Windows, so any further input from other platforms will be…
Well I didn’t really see that coming. Jeff Veen, Product Director for Measure Map, reports that Measure Map has been acquired by Google, and according to Adaptive Path, he’s going there with it.
Discussion of the evolution of triple tags to machine tags, in particular Flickr’s handling thereof, and how best to represent an ISBN in machine tag format.
