malevolent design weblog

This blog is now defunct, but you can find more stuff over at my personal site

March Link Dump

Stuff I noted down that’s worth a link and a sentence:

GeoURL (2.0)
It’s finally back (only a few sites near here though).
CSS Reboot
An attempt to get more non-Flash sites involved in the May 1st Reboot community project (everyone launches redesigned sites on the same day).
Nvu - The Complete Web Authoring System
A free cross-platform alternative to FrontPage and Dreamweaver (there’s also a Windows version that’ll run from a USB drive).
Magic Quotes Headaches
PHP is free, included with most hosting plans, and powerful enough to work with, but it also has some infuriatingly brain-dead features.
The Next Big Thing in Online Type
Good to see Microsoft producing new fonts and improving rendering (currently it’s almost worth buying a Mac just for the way OS X displays text).
Promising-looking open source search engine software based on Lucene.
Page Hijack: The 302 Exploit, Redirects and Google
If you’ve got a site and haven’t yet protected it then have a read.
That Sinking Feeling
This one seems to have spread everywhere (York University folklore had a variation involving the chemistry dept.’s water tower sinking when filled).
