Don’t tell me what my browser can’t do! – Christian Heilmann

This article by Christian Heilmann (of Mozilla and Microsoft fame) about the misconception that expecting certain features and capabilities in browsers and simply stating "please upgrade/turn on/go away" if these "requirements" are not met by the user's set up is web development is very much worth your time if you create things for the web.…

The ethics of modern web ad blocking

All of that tracking and data collection is done without your knowledge, and — critically — without your consent.

TYPO3 6.2 content image in Typoscript

Here are a few lines of TypoScript code that really took me a long time to get to. In TYPO3 4.x, I would fetch an image which is inserted on a certain page as a normal content element (CE) and use it for example as an site wide header image. In this example, the image…

Recently I decided to use the WordPress post formats in my blog. If you're not familiar with post formats, hop over to the wordpress codex and read about them there. Back?
