Friday (23/6/06), 5:27 pm. 8 comments.

Before I get flamed, let me clarify–I like frameworks. I use frameworks. This site’s JavaScript is run on Prototype and Script.aculo.us. The problem is, JavaScript isn’t just JavaScript anymore.

Rounded Images using CSS and some optional JavaScript

Wednesday (7/6/06), 12:28 pm. 34 comments.

Regardless of what some people say, there is one area of rounded corners that hasn’t been dealt with much and that is rounding the corners of images.

There’s been a lot of commotion lately over the subject of frameworks. You’ve most likely already read them (but there’s the links just incase), and I figured I might as well add my two cents to the mess.

May 1st I Reboot

Tuesday (21/2/06), 3:38 pm. 4 comments.
