Anyone an IE Expert?

I’m taking a momentary break from the intellectual juicing that is writing. I feel like this was used on my head. Unfortunately I think I opted for an even more cranially abusive pastime: debugging IE display issues. I wanted to try the IE fix that reader Chris Patterson so generously supplied in a comment, but […]

Evolution of a Sentence

I haven’t had a lot of time to write the past week or two because of Things Going On, although I am in the middle of no less than three articles on varying topics (tech, writing, design). As I sat there last night, evolving a sentence in my upcoming JavaScript book, I thought I might […]

Kindly update your subscriptions

After a long hard think, I’ve decided that I am going to consolidate all 3 of the old feeds into one feed. The new single feed is a “SmartFeed” from FeedBurner, so it should give you a friendly format no matter which feed reader you use. I’ve set old URLs to redirect for 30 days, […]

CoderPath Screencast with Moi

Guess all that free publicity must be good for something! Miles Forrest of CoderPath and I sat down last weekend and talked for about 3 hours about application design, the process of application invention, and all that good stuff. He trimmed it heavily and turned it into a screencast. Which you can watch here. For […]

OSCON 2007 Call for Papers

Hankerin’ to talk at length about some thing to a bunch of geeks in a fairly interesting city in the dead of hot, hot summer? Join me in Portland in July for OSCON. (Where it’s not actually all that hot—Pacific northwest weather is a lovely, lovely thing.) The call for participation is open, and if […]

Quick note: better archive pages

Hey guys… just got a quick update for ya. The archive / category listing pages have sucked on Slash7 for a long time. Mainly because I was too busy / lazy / annoyed at Liquid to write my own template. Well, I just fixed ‘em up somewhat. They’re not perfect yet; they’ll have excerpts soon. […]

Shameless Self-promotion

This blog really isn’t about me, I know. But I still can’t resist tooting my horn a little, once in a while. I hope it’s not too much of a turn-off. For me… A little web app that I designed made it to Mashable and I just have to brag a teeny tiny bit. I’m […]

CoderPath Screencasts

I predict that we’re about to witness the birth of the Rails’ community’s very own “fireside chat.” Entre: CoderPath screencasts. The pitch? Instead of just the screencaster himself speaking, Miles Forrest is interviewing and chatting with others at the same time. Screencast meet interview-style podcast. It’s a sweet idea. (And it doesn’t hurt that they’re […]

The Migratory Loon *update*

Hey folks, I’ve just moved from my dear friend Davey’s colocated box, to a shiny new Planet Argon hosting account. This means that: Davey will no longer have to tolerate my complaining I will no longer have to complain to somebody who is hosting me purely out of the goodness of his own hearts […]

Saturday Post? Well, Maybe Not

So I didn’t finish what I thought I’d finish today, owing to the fact that some of my friends came over to visit me. Yay! But here’s a little teaser: Hold tight. It’ll be comin’ tomorrow.

Hey, why not get a shiny
