Notes from the field

Call yourself a web developer?

12th July 2004

Let’s take a close look at a popular blog and it’s sins. I won’t hold back here. Sketchy image-replacement, an overdose of div tags, extraneous class declarations, improper use of phrase elements, flickering roll-overs, barely semantic.

Inspired by red, orange and yellow

8th July 2004

What makes these three books so valuable to anyone concerned with building websites? Much has been written about all three, and each has gained many plaudits from professional and amateur designers alike.

Glastonbury 2004: Another classic

28th June 2004

So, that was Glastonbury 2004. Around 120,000 revellers enduring sleep deprevation, come-ups and downs, 1000s of performers and everything the weather could throw at us. Probably my favourite Glasto thus far, thanks in part to the volume of friends around me, two days of intense sunshine and some incredibly powerful music.

The Monthly Style Magazine - R.I.P

14th June 2004

The state of magazine publishing in the UK is in serious limbo. People simply do not need to pay four quid a month to find out what’s going on - not now we have the web at our fingertips.

Don’t Cry - They’re Only Onions…

14th June 2004

I feel compelled to help raise collective spirits after last night’s mugging at the hands of the French team. Last night we sat there shell-shocked after the Gallic ones had pulled two goals out of nothing in the final three minutes of the game.

Euro 2004: A Nation Expects…

9th June 2004

Apologies to all readers across the pond. I’m going to write about football (soccer - the one without padding). Euro 2004 begins on the 12th June, and I’m as excited as a squirrel during nut-fall. Why am I so excited this time around? Well, England could actually win…

Photo Sets using Gallery Script 1.9

6th June 2004

I’ve finally uploaded the first CollyLogical photo sets, featuring selected images from my first two trips to Iceland. The galleries are built using some top-notch PHP source called Gallery Script which is very intuitive and completely free.

Icelandic National (Web) Team

2nd June 2004

In what will be the first of millions of posts relating to my love of all things Icelandic, I’ve decided to flag up some excellent websites built in the land where Macs are as important as food, and the internet was introduced way back in 1912 (well, they were well ahead of the UK). Icelandic design continually impresses me - whatever the field - and young developers are readily embracing current standards in their work.

Golden Graham? It’s all a Blur

30th May 2004

I’ve just been to see former Blur guitar-botherer Graham Coxon playing live at a packed Rescue Rooms in Nottingham. The quiet one was actually pretty loud, and had the demeanour of a man unshackled. The gig was by no means perfect, but old Coxon certainly let it rip.
