2015-01-10: So ashamed, I used a <marquee> tag

Forgive me, I was bored. At least I found out what the <marquee> tag is good for. It was created for George Lucas.

2013-06-16: CSS3 Experiment: Aero

Posted at 2013-06-16 22:24:32 by SHD

Sometimes it's cool to just try stuff out in web development without having to support every old browser. Here's the result of playing around for an afternoon attempting to recreate Windows Aero look using just CSS in the current browsers (Firefox 21, Chrome 27, MSIE 10).

2012-11-24: Browser tip: Keep video full screen with multiple monitors (Firefox)

Posted at 2012-11-24 22:46:28 by SHD

If you have multiple monitors and use Firefox to view a HTML5 video (using the <video> tag, such as in the YouTube HTML5 player) or perhaps have a WebGL game that runs full-screen, you will find that the moment you click away to another window on the other monitor, Firefox leaves full-screen mode. This makes it completely useless for watching video while doing something else. There is a fix for it.

2012-09-16: openSUSE/Gnome on the desktop - not quite there yet

Posted at 2012-09-16 06:55:15 by SHD

With some free time and a spare laptop on my hands, I figured I'd try out running a Linux desktop installation once more. Although I've used Linux on servers for more than a decade, all of my regular desktop machines have been Windows and Mac OS. Now, most people running Linux on the desktop seem to be using Ubuntu. I fully intend to give that a try later on, but for now I went with the distro I've been most familiar with for the past 12 years, which is openSUSE. Although I've been able to set things up to the point where it's viable as a proper workstation for me, I'm sorry to say the experience fluctuated between pleasant and dreadful. Here's some of the stuff I encountered and what I did to get things to a usable state.

2012-03-05: CSS Experiment: bar graphs

Posted at 2012-03-05 22:22:46 by SHD

There was an interesting article about website bandwidth usage posted on Hacker News today. It contains some bar graphs explaining which fractions of the total download size of a site home page is attributable to text content, images, CSS, scripts etc. The author said he had "cheated" in creating those bar graphs by taking screen shots from Safari's development console. I figured this was a nice challenge to see if I could recreate those graphs in pure HTML and CSS.
