Crazy Creative Communication
The Playground of the designing developer or vice versa —Webarchitect— Dirk Sidney Jansen
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
All kinds of web related stuff that I've been recently fooling around with …
Fluid Layouts: 3 equal heights columns
A modern approach to 3 equal heights columns layout using CSS only and HTML5 structural tags as class names
A simple but somewhat different crossbrowser 3-column layout with equal heights, header and footer.
My YouTube Video Wall
Perhaps Google App Engine and 24ways' great article
Kind of mimicing a Huffduffer Podcast
Doh? Well, that's just me. Guess I'm just not really too much into podcasting (Perhaps that will change …), but since I'm always interested in what Jeremy Keith is up to, I signed up to his service Huffduffer in order to get one minimalistic but very user friendly spot to give podcasting a chance.
I did this, mainly to mimic their user interface for the cause of being able to integrate it into my own websites, while enhancing it with a simple availability check, which again makes it slow down quite a bit and also turns out not to be very reliable … (I might just remove it.)
A randomly styled PHP Countdown
A while back, someone in the TalkPHP community asked how he could achieve My reply back then suggested he'd use a combination of the PHP functions
Now, a couple of weeks later, I've played around with that idea and wound up creating what I would describe as
Randomly styled PHP Countdown.
Though the underlying intention behind this script is rather playful, it could actually be usefull when i.e. you want to display an accessible download-link after some (queue-) time has passed.
