Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of your very own Web Designer! But now what do you do?
Since I started using del.icio.us in a semi-serious way I realised that it’s most useful to me as a place to store links that I could a) potentially blog about or b) might need when I’m on a different machine.
Of course, all things being equal and despite my best intentions, I can’t really blog about all the things I save to del.icio.us and in lieu of a sidebar-linklog thing I present a small weekend reading list (yes I know it’s Sunday afternoon, but tomorrow’s a Bank Holiday so you’ve got plenty of time).
- UK Postcode Coordinates (via Jim) – I should probably link this in to the UK Blogger Map and the full list of UK Bloggers by postcode to come up with a semi-complete map. Two versions maybe? Bigger version for zoomability?
searches an RDF or RSS file for resources with geographic locations, and returns a map overlayed with dots representing located resources.Neat.
- A biased Outlook 2003 vs. Thunderbird comparison – I’ll leave it to you to let the author know where and how he’s wrong.
- BBC Web Development Guidelines – this is very interesting reading. Of particular interest is Appendix E: Browser Support Standards
which provides details of what browsers must be supported by all bbc.co.uk pagesand says that Safari is only partially supported, and that there’s no need to test in it. Blimey.
- Print CSS — table headers and footers – an incredibly useful nugget of information about getting headers and footers to appear on multiple pages in CSS.
- ZVON tabs and sidebars – for RSS Reader reasons I was looking at sidebars again, and got depressed at how lame sidebars are in Firefox compared to Mozilla. I desperately want my F9 back.
