Quick and dirty instructions for creating iPhone/iPod Touch webclip icons for your site.
Panic may now hold a record for fastest conversion cycle with me now that they’ve released Coda.
To echo comments I’ve made to a friend, it’s what iWeb should have been.
If you have a Mac, and you do anything resembling web design or programming, you need to at least give this a spin.
Dear Uncle Ezra was the very first anonymous advice column on the Internet/Intarwebs/Webinet, debuting in 1986. Questions are answered by an anonymous Cornell staffer who farms out what he does not know to other experts within the college. The service is available to everyone, not just the Cornell affiliated.
The first question ever answered on the service is one certainly appropriate for Ithaca:
DEAR UNCLE EZRA MY GIRLFRIEND IS FRIGID, WHAT CAN I DO? CHILLY WILLY
DUE is, in its own way, quite interesting. It’s worth reading, or at least subscribing to.
(If you’re looking for something a little more groupthink, you had damn well better know about Ask Metafilter by now.)
In January of 2004, I launched the first major version of VJ Army, my Beatmania IIDX score tracking and community site.
Since that time, over 2500 users have registered, inputting nearly 500,000 scores collectively across 10 different game titles. By all traditional means, the site is a smashing success.
However, reality has set in recently: the site has always been rough around the edges, because I am not a designer. Worse, my time to work on the site has been greatly limited as my work obligations continue to grow.
Luckily, there is relief in sight. I am happy to announce VJ Army 4.0, scheduled for release around September 1st of this year. 4.0 represents massive overhauls to both the codebase and the VJ Army coding process. I’ve been really pleased with what’s been accomplished so far, and I’d like to give you a little tour through some of the fantastical newness.
Warning: lots of mind-blowing screenshots ahead.
It’s that once yearly time where I get tired of the layout I have and switch to an entirely different one.
This one finally cures something that’s always bothered me immensely about most MT themes – the artificial 500px content boundary. I’m sure 500px is great for keeping people focused on text, but it’s horrible if you want to post a picture with reasonable size.
Some content has settled in transit and may be missing for the time being; it’ll be back soon, I promise.
UPDATE: I’ve ungimped the comment form, upped the font size to make the pages easier to read, increased the width a little, replaced a handful of icons, and added a tag cloud to the archives page. I appreciate the feedback I’ve gotten and certainly won’t mind getting more.
