Via WaSP, it looks as if FrontPage is likely to make their standards defunct web page editor, well, standards compliant. Let us just hope that it is not the same compliance level that Internet Explorer is at.

Metallica: St. Anger Review

Thursday, June 5th, 2003


However you chose to say it, Metallica still rules. Their new CD (St. Anger) is further proof of their ruleage. They have hit their audience with a very raw sound that many people are taking a while to get used to. The drums sound like something out of Blue Man Group. But I like it. Makes me want to monkey-stomp something.

CSS @ Play and Other News

Thursday, June 5th, 2003

Ran across CSS Play while looking through by access logs. Presented is some examples of things that can CSS can do, or rather, should be able to do provided it is viewed in a compliant browser.

Speaking of “compliant browsers”, this raises another issue that has cropped up regarding Microsoft’s IE release schedule. If you haven’t read already, Microsoft plans to halt production on future standalone browser versions. From now on, IE browser upgrades will only be available to those who upgrade to the next operating system that Microsoft puts out. I personally think this a terrible move, carrying with it very negative effects on the web development community. It’s bad enough that browsers currently don’t agree on standards, now we ave IE6/Win as our lowset common denominator.
