Whilst looking for some Photoshop resources I came across a huge list of Photoshop brushes – I thought I would post and link to some of the better ones I’ve found. Images below are the actual brushes in use, click the images to be linked to the website to download them.
One of the more effective things jQuery can be used for is creating eye catching roll-over effects on images, the code below is a short example of how you can achieve this using custom HTML attributes and serving a whole page (not just limited to one image)
After several searches for a pre-loading plugin for jQuery I came up short – they either did too much and had hundreds of options I didn’t want, or they were packaged with something else had a lot of code I didn’t need. The following plugin will allow you to pass in a selector (div, body, any other element) and pre-load all images within it, the plugin is very lightweight with only 17 lines from start to finish.
WordPress has released a BETA version of the next big release – 3.2. There are many noticeable changes, such as a re-vamped administration panel and brand new default theme (now HTML5 supported)
Along with the visual changes, lots of back end features such as Updating has also been upgraded, WordPress now supports incremental updates.
GNOME 3, aside from looking visually different to GNOME 2 thanks to its new ‘Shell’ – has had a refit, rethink and re-code of pretty much everything else underneath it! With changes so big and dramatic as these it’s hard to know where to start in mentioning them.
Despite the changes GNOME 2 applications will continue to work without flaw in GNOME 3.
The machine-readable web has come a step closer thanks to open sourcers in the Drupal community.
Drupal 7 has received sign-off – finally – adding the ability to embed semantic meta-data into sites using the open-source content management system.
That means Drupal 7 is adding native support for the W3C’s RDFa – a set of XHTML attributes that are designed to turn human readable data into data that’s readable by machines. That could be data such as a location’s map coordinates. RDFa is already being used by Google (see here).
I have provided a download for the example at the bottom of the page; although all of the needed code is explained and shown further down in the article.
