Wouldn’t it be great if things just worked. Even for 5 minutes at a time. I am just saying.

3D Text Tower with MOAR 3D with MAGIC! (CSS)
If you are in internet explorer this post will look very dull indeed. Get a different browser, you crazy fool!
So, the various lovely things that can be done with the CSS3 property text-shadow, whilst still lost on Internet Explorer users, are definitely still worth playing with.
David Desandro’s 3D Text Tower effect, as popularised by Chris Coyier is pretty darn cute.
It’s not just for 3D effects though..
I’m really liking the whole mixed media thang at the moment. Created a couple of watercolour headers that display based on GMT sunrise and sunset. Never realised PHP had sunrise/sunset functions, you larn a new thing every day, huh? Still very much WIP, but I’m loving the paint. I’ve gone all painty.Â I painted the cats and the landscapes separately, so I can move ’em about. Taking photos of the paintings with a K850i is perhaps less than ideal however – I think I need to get a scanner working..
dojo master regexp your arse, glasshoppa!
Dojo Toolkit and Regexp monster child runs amok. Citizens terrified. Where will it stop?? I want to put ‘>=2 ‘ in a combobox. Dojo master say no. In fact, it seems to be escaping any even vaguely ‘dodgy’ characters. I can’t put < in, fair enough. I can’t put & in. I tried ‘<‘ even. It converts that to & lt; but it won’t resolve anything with an ampersand in either. This bug, and yes I say it IS a bug, is bugging the arse off me. bloody wordpress is at it too! Leave me the hell alone! What is wrong with you people?!?!
