Mid-July Link Dump
Yep, too many links to keep til the end of the month:
- Attempts to piece together lost web sites from online archives/caches. Cross your fingers that you’ll never need it.
- Videlectrix · more of their games
- Where’s an Egg? is actually easier to understand and more fun to play than some of the old landfill-worthy console games.
- Ditching PHP 4 is long overdue.
- So, you want to be an ARCADE champion?
- Reading through the analyses of the games and their records reminded me of what a con most arcade games were. You had to put in a couple of weeks’ worth of pocket money before you realised you weren’t missing something crucial, the game really was crap and pointless.
- HTML Purifier
- PHP code that whitelists markup, ensuring the output is valid and free from malicious code. Every web app that accepts user-submitted markup (e.g. via a rich text editor) needs something like this.
- I lived on the Moon
- A superb music video by Yannick Puig, and the creative process behind it.
- Storing iPhone apps locally with data URLs
- I wondered whether this’d work, but assumed they’d severely limit the URL length.
- AIM WIMZI Widget
- Lets you embed instant messaging into your site without giving out your username.
- LittleBigPlanet · gameplay clip · trailer
- Looks fun, although it’s sometimes surprisingly hard to turn clever concepts into truly playable games. And it’s for the PS3.
- Bust A Name
- A genuinely useful tool for discovering available domain names (not that I need any more of them) (OK, I bought two the other week).
