Plot 15 moves to plot 7...with added deadly...
Oh well, we say goodbye to plot 15 and hello to plot 7. What better way to start the day than to get a lovely e-mail from my local parish council, letting me know that a plot had become free just down the road from me. I popped down last night to take a couple of shots - this was probably getting on for 6 / 7pm ish - but can you check out the secret visitor that has snuck on, after all this was...

What does your site look like in new Google Chrome...
I have been on the Google Chrome trail now for a few days and my god its fast! If you haven’t got around to checking all your sites in it yet, some of the automated testing sites have been quite quick off the mark like [ Litmus ] and [ Browsershots ] but I don’t think [ Total Validator ] has caught up yet. Anyhoo, hope your sites are well and you are enjoying the speed now anyway....
transcribing video the web 2.0 way...
For good accessibility, usability and lovely reasons, it is always good to have a transcript done of your online video. Most of the time this means using an outside agency and sending large files around. No more. Now, there is Casting Words [ http://castingwords.com ]. I first saw it mentioned on Bruce Lawson’s blog here [...

Free HTML e-mail templates from Campaign Monitor
are here : http://www.campaignmonitor.com/templates/ and you don’t even need to worry about testing them with Outlook 2007! For anyone new to the world of sending out HTML mails, it would be worth downloading a few of these ones and then picking them apart to see how they work. Its really the use or lack of CSS and the way of handling and styling the HTML that is key. Oh and do make...

Here we go again with CSS Flash image...
Most people have probably heard of SiFR, Shaun Inman’s lovely technique of embedding Flash in a site to replace the fonts. But now we have Facelift or FLIR stepping up to the table. Facelift Image Replacement | About FLIR Image Replacement Apart from the techy side (whether its better than any other technique which needs a bit more testing yet I think…), its a good example of how to...

Launching a site into beta...the web 2.0 way!
Howdy all…does seem like more and more sites are chucking out open betas of their homepages these days, very web 2.0. The grand daddy I suppose was the BBC one - [ http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2007/12/a_lick_of_paint_for_the_bbc_ho.html ] which most people probably saw, but recently Facebook have rolled out a new one as well as the retailer Comet. Why have they all bothered? ...
