Pray

To quote Kenneth Himschoot: Our W3C, which art on the net: Hallowed be thy markup. Thy workingdrafts come. Thy Specs be done in Mozilla as they are in Opera. Give us this day our daily XHTLM and forgive us our hacks and workarounds, as we forgive all tablebased designers. And lead us not to invalid […]

Redesign Chronicles: Introduction

Over the coming months, I’m going to tear down and redesign this site. I plan to do it slowly, making it a great practice and learning experience for me personally. What I plan to do is chronicle the process, describe steps I’m going to take, what the options are and the rationale behind my choices.

“It’s Like Goldy and Bronzy”

Matt Mullenweg’s business card allegedly instructs people just to enter “Matt” and hit “I’m Feeling Lucky” to get to his site. Well, now I can instruct people to enter “Ironicist” and hit “I’m Feeling Lucky”… should I dare to say that it feels “ironic”?

Blog by Numbers: Don’t Shoot the Mime, TeX!

I’m currently working on an article that make use of some math notation. Normally, in such cases, when you need something out of the ordinary that can’t easily be marked up as XHTML you render an image (yes, I know about MathML). It’s quite easy to render beautiful math formulae off-line. But making the round-trip […]

Blog Magellan: Relationships

A couple of days ago I stated that I hadn’t yet begun looking for a navigation link plugin for WordPress yet, because I imagined that I could write one just as quickly myself rather than sift through a zillion plugins that all do the same thing in addition to suffering from bad cases of optionitis. […]

Blog Magellan: At the Kings Table

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been posting very long (sometimes too long that I had to split them up in several posts) articles, that I wrote ten years ago, over at my swedish site. That mean lots of content, paragraphs and headings split up over five or ten pages per post. So I […]

Twenty letters, first letter “I”, last letter “N”?

When we’re already at it. Molly Holzschlag (yes, I had to look up the spelling — just remember “type of wood” til’ next time) held a session during @media 2006: “Internationalisation: Awakening The Sleeping Giant”. Available as mp3 for audio and slides for visual sensory pleasure. Also, don’t forget to take a look at the […]

Swedish and English Translation of Sandbox

I have made my swedish translation for Sandbox available as sv_SE.po and sv_SE.mo. You only need the later unless you intend to modify the translation. Even if you are using english as standard on your blog, you can still benefit from gettext to modify some wordings without changing any of the template files. For the […]

Additional
rel-links

I have not yet been looking for a navigation link plugin for WordPress. But I imagine I can do one just as quickly myself rather than sift through a zillion plugins that all do the same thing in addition to suffering from bad cases of optionitis. Right now in addition to the usual rel-stylesheet (for […]

Blog Magellan: Archive Navigation

I guess this, my English site, will become more and more about web design and development in general with an occasional humor piece split in for good measure, while I spend more time covering philosophy, history, writing and film making in swedish. One of my personal goals is to become a better writer overall. So […]
