End-of-year Link Dump
Now I can go into the new year with an almost empty virtual Post-It note:
- Large, multi-monitor desktop wallpapers.
- I’d not heard of the bizarre
<isindex>, but most of the others aren’t exactly obscure or outdated.
- BowMaster Prelude
- Probably the best of the defend-the-castle Flash games out there.
- Clipboard Data Theft Optional In IE 7
- The Evil Web Designer can now only violate clipboards with permission!
- A texture-mapped 3D engine for Flash (demo).
- Backdooring MP3 Files
- Yet another example of why allowing scripting in media players is usually a really bad idea.
- Searching with PHP and MySQL
- Simple and reasonably effective.
- Flash Panorama Player
- Nothing new, but this one seems slick and surprisingly fast.
- Introducing Text-Stroke
- Safari already has the ability to add soft drop shadows to text, and now they’re adding text outlines.
- What’s the story with Photoshop & multi-core?
- An explanation of why modern multi-core processors aren’t such a great leap forward in terms of performance.
