Pants: Ticking Timebomb

I was hoping that I could start this Pants Award with my very own review from Ticking Timebomb. It’s one of those tweeny review sites that pop-up from time to time, but ultimately disappear because the standard of reviewing is piss poor and nobody actually reads them [the reviews]. Unfortunately, she refused to review me… read more →

Your Website is Letting You Down

With Karl and I in the process of moving house, I have decided to indulge a little in one of my few obsessions: clocks. Since I was younger I have had this unexplainable need to know the time, and to have access to an accurate timepiece. I check my watch even if I already know… read more →

Rockin’ It Old School!

In an attempt to suppress the incessant need to spawn new layouts, as mentioned in my last post, I have decided to hell with it.. I’ll simply fall on to Phil’s advice and bring back a style-switcher and several older layouts along with it. This idea was easier said than done, as I discovered the… read more →

Grass is Always Greener

Stripes, gradients, little pixel icons.. you name it, it’s in there! I’ve not even finished yet, but if I don’t get it uploaded it’ll be one of… read more →

Two Web Naughties I Secretly Love

No, I’m not talking about pr0n, but web design habits that fly in the face of accessibility, good design or just plain old common sense. I have a secret love for quite a few of these ‘naughties’ and while I probably won’t ever use/go back to them myself, I smile a secret smile when I… read more →

Actually, Include the 404

While doing some random surfing, in between mocking up a potential new disaster (layout) in Photoshop, and whilst avoiding the washing up/ignoring the oven (oh shit my flat is on fire) I found a post at codinghorror.com about Creating User Friendly 404s. The post is not terribly old and does include some relevant and interesting… read more →
