The Saga of the Interwebs

18th December 2007

Seven years into the new Millennium, an approximate 26,328 task forces, 3,402 unworking groups, and 5 fantasy comic book heroes are in existence on Earth.

I appreciate most of my readership will already be aware of the freshly-launched Email Standards Project, which aims to promote better support for web standards in the many, many email tools out there.

If you are going to rip off my work…

3rd February 2007

At least have the courtesy to remove my portfolio grabs. It is also wise to remove Agenzia’s contact details from the footer so that my friend and former colleague Big Lee cannot find your plagiarised attempt at design via Google.

Beginning CSS… competition winners

20th November 2006

I’m reet busy, so apologies for the delay in announcing the winners of the two Beginning CSS Web Development competitions. Yes, somebody is getting a Nano, somebody else is getting a free CSS template based on one of their PSDs, and someone else is getting a whole site! I must be barmy. Anyway, the winners…

Beginning CSS… in review

25th October 2006
