Ubuntu: next release will be the critical one

April 24 will be a red letter day for the Ubuntu project. It will be three-and-a-half years since the experiment began and the release that day of Hardy Heron, as version 8.04 is known, will be a defining moment. This could well be the release that either makes or breaks the project.

Having been a heavy user of linux desktops before my permanent defection to OS X, I still find a lot of great things to say about Linux in general and Ubuntu in particular. I've been actively following the goings on in the community (usually via Digg) and I'm looking forward to this next release.

Crazy Sock Headphones, Only from Make...

So I'm browsing some tech news tonight, and I come across this engadget posting for a pair of home made sock headphones. It's actually a posting about this Make Blog Entry. Just another in the long line of cool things people are hacking together. I really like the nature of this one though, it's clever and funny.


Google Buses in their help, a big perk in the valley getting press

This Story on Cnet (which appears to come from the new york times) is an interesting write up about Google's new(ish) bus system for their workers. It's an interesting look into the depths that Google goes to separate themselves from the competition.


more inspiration from Smashing Mag

this is yet another super collection of sites, 45 this time, picked out by the folks over at smashing magazine.

The beauty of the lists of at smashing is they never claim to be the best of anything, and their not limited to big or small sites, they just talk about the subject matter. Really nice stuff listed here.


Missed this nice post at Smashing

One of my new favorite places to poke around is smashing magazine, a site dedicated to web development, mostly design. I remember reading the post : 50 Beautiful CSS-Based Web-Designs in 2006 | Smashing Magazine a while back and never linked to it.


Wal Mart shuts out Firefox

Jonathan Kemp has this follow up on the Tech Crunch posting about wal mart not properly supporting the firefox browser on its new video download site:Design by CSS » Wal-Mart Does Not Support FirefoxThe kicker is, they have now "updated" the site to not render improperly, no... not by fixing the simple CSS problems but instead by kicking out all non IE browsers.Yowza.


A List apart: multi column layouts that work the way we want them to

Multi-Column Layouts Climb Out of the Box:A List Apart: Articles: Multi-Column Layouts Climb Out of the Box This is a fantastic write up with examples of coding multi columned, elastic layouts that have the same height. Very nice, clean markup and some very good looking examples. This is a keeper in the post table based layout that we've mercifully arrived in.


Web Hosting Blues

So I host about a dozen websites, all low traffic, all for family and friends. I eat the monthly cost of a reseller account for everyone and it doesn't bother me because it's not too expensive or anything. I had been hosting with rootmode but got an email a while back saying they were closing down and I needed to move everything and right quick. Woops. Wasn't too psyched about that, because you know I have other things going on in my life that makes moving a dozen sites complicated. There's more info after the jump if you want it.
