Code and Coffee:
Optimize HTML size to the MAX. I’ll have to try the image-naming philosophy.
30 free fading background images. All fade to white.
New version of Spam Karma 2 plugin (2.3).
“Best Linux Distro?” Soon as I get one of these old PCs cleaned off, it’s time to experiment.
Doesn’t get any easier than this.
Digital Video Editing:
Building Your Own Final Cut Pro HD Edit System in your Basement for less than 50k. Oh, ouch. Taking donations ...
Later: There is hope, at the lower end.
Even later: Just out of curiousity, how’s Avid holding up against Final Cut Pro?
Test websites in multiple browsers
with BrowserPool. Pay for service, but saves having to own multiple systems and maintain/install all the variants. I haven’t used it yet, but will try a test account at a later time.
How much is PhotoBucket worth? “... it’s more than double the 7 million at Flickr, the site many people believe is the largest photo-sharing site.”
moves ahead to version 2.2.
Later: You might want to wait a bit before downloading. I started to grab it, but I’ve only got 17 mb after over 1/2 hour of downloading. Predictably popular.
Why Apollo? Good background on Adobe’s new product.
has released Downloader Pro 2.0. I use the Downloader product regularly, though I may fool with Lightroom’s ‘Import’ function to see how it compares.
Complete logo design guide. 300 links for logo design.
Ask The CSS Guy:
What use is an online aggregator
if this kind of Xerox behavior is allowed to raise links to popularity? Many people hit Tailrank and never look at the links boostering popularity. This is not tracking memes. I’m removing Tailrank from my list of online aggs.
Space Navigator. Since I use form•z, this interests me quite a bit. I remember the old TDI interface, an external plug-in panel with six dials. One could loft a 3D model much faster than with Alias’ mouse-based interface of the time. Can’t wait to order one, next 3D job that comes my way. Thanks, Volker.
First look inside Adobe Photoshop CS3. Holy cow. Lemme at it.
from Sitemeter to Google Analytics is proving very educational. I had the mistaken impression most of my readers were regulars. Turns out nearly 80% are first-timers. I’ll wait for a week’s worth of information to verify that, but I think I’ll adjust my ‘voice’ a bit ... no longer expect readers to be familiar with my past postings and style. My archives are in a bit better shape since the template change, so backreferencing should be easier.
