Now With IE8 Support!

Notice anything different about this site? …well, hopefully not.

Getreel; youtube-dl wrapped in a web app

My friend Jezra was recently put into the same predicament that I've been in for the last year and a half. We live in beautiful areas that are full of natural splendor, but very light on the technology front. As a result, we both have our Internet beamed to us from frickin' space via a satellite.

Using SVG

I've been working a lot with SVG a lot lately, and you know what? It would be really handy to have a SVG-like format that could be embedded via the img tag.

Browsers Don't Matter

Web development is entirely reliant on browsers to display web sites. Without browsers, the large majority of the Internet would cease to be useful – or functional for that matter. So how is it that browsers don't matter?

Regex Renegade

Being a web guy in a small government organization, I have limited amounts of time to put towards each page. The amount of time I put into a page directly effects how practical it is to create that page; it also effects how much time I have for the next page. The time I take to put up one page has a kind of cascade effect on how much the County can put online. With that taken under consideration, I do not take lightly any technique that saves me time. PsPad, my text editor, has earned a warm place in my heart because of just that: it's full of little time-saving functions that make my life easier.

Design and Standards

One of the things I've been doing as of late involves subscribing to the RSS feed of any sites I find in my travels - that is, any feeds I think might provide insight or intelligence. One of the sites I've stumbled upon is Design Meltdown, a design-heavy web site that showcases good design by category (colors, design techniques, genres of page, etc). I'm trying to improve my design skills, so this gives me some creative fat to chew.

IE8's Three Faces

There has been tons of news recently about IE8. It's extremely early in the browser's development, so take it all with a grain of salt, but it has been announced that IE8 passes the Acid2 test, which means the support for standards should be huge leaps and bounds over IE7, and completely surpassing anything IE6 could have hoped for. In effect, very good news.

Internal Links: Anchors Away

I discovered that my original technique of using anchor tags is far out of date. Modern technology has given us a much simpler, much slimmer, much snazzier way to link to your content, and it's seen cross-browser support for years.

What's In A Name?

While re-designing a page that relied heavily on internal linking, I ran into a problem using a numeral at the beginning of the name attribute. Whenever I used a name that started with a digit, the validator returned an error. This had never happened before, so I checked the reasoning behind the error*.

Web Accessibility - Balancing Elephants

Recently, I've been able to make a layout for Warren County that is too good to be true. It is completely standards compliant (xHTML 1.0 Strict, even!), very accessible (passes automatic verification on Sec. 508 and others) and still looks half good. It also works on all major browsers, degrades beautifully on those that don't support CSS, and only has some minor hiccups on browsers that have... "misguided" CSS support. It's taken tons and tons of work, and I just about peed my pants when I finished it. To a web designer, this is a thing of beauty. This is what we strive for.
