iPoddie

Now that I’m in the States, I’ve taken possession of my previously ordered iPod. Needless to say, I’m loving it.

Wish you were here

I’m in the land of coral and sunshine: Key West, home to Hemingway, shipwrecks, six-toed cats, wild chickens and lots and lots of seafood,

Sunshine state of mind

I’m taking a flight from Gatwick to Orlando first thing tomorrow. Jessica and I will be spending the next two weeks in Florida.

Not waving but drowning

Looking at the unusually large waves being churned up on the shore of Brighton’s beach yesterday put me in mind of a particularly descriptive line from Joyce:

Don't worry, browse happy

The Web Standards Project has launched a new promotional website to encourage people to switch from Internet Explorer. It’s called Browse Happy.

Something well wicked this way comes

Here’s a wonderfully Goreyesque Flash game called A Murder Of Scarecrows.

iSnap!

A gaggle of geeks

This weekend, Brighton was the setting for Geekend 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Envy

File this under "Now, why didn’t I think of that?".

Greed

I finally caved in and succumbed to the temptation of owning the style gadget de-siècle. I’ve ordered an iPod.

Gluttony

Richard points out that Jamie Oliver’s website is now written in XHTML and CSS.

Sloth

When I really should be working, the last thing I need to read is this excellent article by Tom Hodgkinson in The Guardian entitled The Virtue Of Idleness, taken from his forthcoming book How To Be Idle:

Pride

It’s that time of year again. Brighton is party-central this weekend. Brighton Pride is an annual event celebrating the town—, sorry, city’s gay and lesbian community. It’s Fun with a capital F and it’s make me proud to live

Definite article

I finally put together some of my slides from the SkillSwap talk I gave with Richard and turned them into an article.

:hover Considered Harmful

I was on iChat with Andy Clarke recently, shooting the breeze about CSS and accomplishing this or that cross-browser effect.

Migratory patterns

I’ve mentioned before just how stressful and nerve-wracking it can be to move web hosts. That’s why I’ve been putting off the long-overdue migration of The Session from the hell that is WebServePro.
