I haven't forgotten v2 of the Color Picker App & it's something I've been wanting to work on. Unfortunately I have other projects that pay the bills taking priority. I wanted to share a couple of ideas I've been toying with and get some feedback.
I'm planning to completely drop reliance on the X Library. I had toyed with the idea of doing some sort of flash based thing, but I'm thinking of using jQuery, YUI, or both instead.

- Offer ends on Friday 13th February (2009).
- 100% of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to victims of the recent Australian bushfires.
- Choose any 5 books (in PDF format) and pay $29.95 USD.
A friend of mine just sent me an email today with the subject line of
SitePoint 5 for 1 Bushfire Relief Sale and all the body contained was the link http://5for1.aws.sitepoint.com/. Copy/pasting the link into firefox dropped me at a page showing a fireman giving a koala a drink of water - how cute. Scrolling farther down the page past the form for selecting the PDFs you want I found the
Why is SitePoint doing this? section and I'm stunned! Wow! Over 170 dead, 5000 now homeless... I hope my friends in Australia are all ok.

This post is in response to my friend who pointed this out to me via Facebook/StumbleUpon - 10 Dirty Little Web Development Tricks by Yongfook. I may come back later and add the header names for each item, until then each of mine relate directly to the items in the article.

I ran into an issue in IE a couple months back & I've seen a couple of other people mention they're having the same issue. It's something that once you've solved in a project you usually don't think about it again... at least until you run into the problem again in a different project.

As great as Firefox is for web development, it still has it's quirks (just like every other browser). Granted, the few I've run into are nowhere near as bad as IE's quirks, bugs, & bad implimentations. This latest project is proving quite interesting...
My preference for development is to develop in Firefox & then check it in IE - just to make sure it's still at least readable.

Something sparked my imagination which suddenly made me go hunting for an HTML file I put together in '04/'05 displaying the system colors. I don't remember how I originally found these & put them together, but probably had something to do with building "more professional looking applications" in various programming languages. I do know the reason why I put the page together & it's mostly due to the geek inside wanting a way to show off this little used knowledge.
