I recently suggested to my father that he switch from Internet Explorer to Firefox. My father went and did a little poking around the internet as to the merits of Firefox and uncovered Adam Kalsey’s blog entry about why he doesn’t recommended Firefox to the general public. My father pointed me to it, and asked […]

Recently, I became aware of CSS3’s box-sizing property. This property can have two values, content-box and border-box. The content-box value is what we’re all used to.

I opened up my news reader for the first time in three days today. It collected my feeds and reported that I have 2,817 unread items. My god, news happens fast.
Trying to get your computer repaired after a nightmarish crash can be even more of a nightmare. I just have to vent my frustrations at Best Buy’s horrible customer service.

I wanted to use my blog entries, created in WordPress to generate content for pages on my site that were not in my blog. This seemed simple enough, and it is, but without some guidance this can be a really confusing situation. While WordPress supports a pseudo-templating system that can be used to easily customize […]
I’m really not sure if this will help or hurt the state of accessibility on the web. Businesses don’t really understand what accessibility is, and the ease of misunderstanding that this WiderWeb service gives them an accessible page then things are sad indeed.
