Notes from the field

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.

Yesterday, Simon Willison posted a short overview of some current visited links methods over at Sitepoint, mentioning the method I use here. Good stuff, but is there a security flaw when using background images with CSS link styles?

The Tale of the Unloved iMac

21st May 2004

We call him Future Stereo. He may well be inanimate, but I’m concerned about his well being. Disillusioned by being asked to do nothing more than play MP3s all day, the little fella is showing signs of trauma. The story of Little iMac and his marginalization is a sad one. It’s a cathartic thing for me to tell this tale, but is anyone listening to the stereo?

Beta Band Live: Better Than Ever

13th May 2004

Seems views are split on the new Beta Band album, Heroes To Zeroes. “It’s not The Three E.P’s!”, they wail. No, it’s not - The Three E.P’s is The Three E.P’s - that’s obvious. Others proclaim it as a return to form for the slightly grizzled Scots. Some people haven’t actually listened to it, or don’t know who they are.

In Southend, United

11th May 2004

Posted via CollyPhone: Images from the University-gang reunion in glamorous Southend-on-Sea recently. Probably a bit ropey seeing as I’m sending them from my mobile, but it’s not the future yet.
