Rethinking Workflow Using Cloud
Do you find yourself fighting your editor? The common text editors of today work quite well as long you work they way they want you to. Yet, when you stray from their paradigm, even when they seem to offer infinite flexibility, it can be a chore to get even simple things done…

Subtle Updates and Other Historical Back Steps
I spent the last two days watching football and fixing up a few odds & ins around my sites. Probably the biggest change is the top menu. Iíve tried to match the style across each major site, including font and minor format changes. I also added my 360voice Dynamic Usersbars as a top-level site …

Fun with Fonts
I decided to play around a bit and try a different font for my site. My original goal was to use something with better kerning and ligatures, but most browsers donít seem ready for that yet. I settled on using Trebuchet MS as my new site font…

Going Chrome, But not by Choice
Iíve been having a bit of a problem lately getting Safari to keep working! Seems it keeps crashing every few minutes with a library issue that I canít seem to fix. Fed up with multiple uninstall, reinstall, replace and restore attempts over the last week, Iíve decided to give Chrome another try. Fir…

Flickr LEGO Fun
Flickr has become my new favorite place to share my LEGO creations. I tend to use Facebook for family and friends, mainly because that is what my family and friends use. But I digress. It is pretty easy now to use available tools, mine being Windows Live Photo Gallary, that allow easy publishing…

So Long GeoCities, Thanks For The Memories
Well, as of today my GeoCities site of the last 12 years is no more. Iím a bit saddened as it has been a place of comfort, seeing me through different ISPís and such. It is because of GeoCities that I use Yahoo! mail, even if Yahoo! then turned around and removed the best features of GeoCities…

LEGO and ZX81 Geocities Content Moved
Yahoo! will be shutting down Geocities tomorrow, 10/26/09, which means an end to my old LEGO and ZX81 website. Although I hadnít updated those sites much since Yahoo! turned off ftp access, Geocities had remained my presence on the web for almost 12 years. Sad to say, it will be sad to see it go. Fo…

Nearing the End of an Era
Needless to say, one of the many reasons I started Reidís For Fun was because of Yahoo!ís neutering of GeoCities: removal of ftp and a paltry 4.2MB hourly limit. It was, however, my friend in the hey day of Internet growth and I am saddened at its (un)timely demise. Although not my first web site, G…

Escaping HTML in Attributes or I'm Such a Boob
Iíve been building web sites for over 13 years and have been escaping HTML for years. You know, converting & to & or " to ". Easy stuff, right? Then why did I completely forget that you have to do the same within attributes…

Minor Fixes on my Dynamic Userbars
I noticed a few errors with my 360voice Dynamic Userbars today, so I decided I should probably fix them. One was with my watched list. I limit the list to 20, but it wasnít actually working properly for users not watching anyone…

Fun with Article Images
If you hadnít noticed, in addition to adding reflections, Iíve been updating the images I use for my articles. I did this once before, but I added a silly highlight that just didnít look right. I decided I need to make some changes. As a start, Iíve removed that highlight…

Embed, Object, and Standards
When I added that visitor map yesterday, I wasnít all that concerned that it used an embed object. That is, I wasnít concerned till I tried to validate my site. It isnít something I do that often, but Iíd made enough changes that I thought it would be a good idea…

Giving Whoís Amung Us a Try
A number of other sites that I frequent are using a visitor counter service called Who's Amung Us. The site is easy to start using, just request the url, select a style and add to your site. Bingo, all done. Note that it isnít a page counter, but how many users are currently looking at your site…

Going Full Time with Safari
I never thought Iíd change browsers again, but Iíve found myself using Safari full time now. I really enjoyed using IE7, but a few of Firefoxís features had me hooked on it. The problem is, Iíve always had memory issues and, lately anyway, frequent hangs and crashes…

IE8 Beta Not So Great
So, I actually liked IE7, but ended up going to FireFox because I really liked some of its features and plug-ins. However, Iíve always enjoyed the look and feel of IE7, so when IE8 Beta was announced, I wanted to give it a try to see if IE8 was going to win me back…

I Want to Go Fast ... Speed Testing

Cool Halo API
This is pretty cool. Hawty McBloggy blogged about a site that generates some spawn time stats (Halo 3 - Time Wasted Respawning). The script is interesting. But more interesting was that it makes use of a Halo API. If you remembered (or cared) I blogged about looking for an API…

Safari - 3.0.4
It appears that a new version of Safari is out: 3.0.4. It is still a public beta, but they did fix a few niggles from the last version. For one, tool tips now work. For another, the inline spell checking is now working. Looks like IE7 is still lagging in that area…

Getting into that Web 2.0 Thing
Iíve been hearing a lot about the Web 2.0, but not sure how much Iíve been participating. I signed up for a Digg account, but didnít really get into it. Iím still not sure what is considered Web 2.0. If you check out Wiki's definition of Web 2.0, Iíve already been part of the whole Web 2…
