Frustrations with fisheye menus

While scanning down Jon Udell’s blog this morning, a link to the fisheye menu demo caught my eye. I’d seen the demo before, but I checked it out anyway. I started think about how it could be done with DOM. Only later that evening, while showing my demo to Elexa, did I notice that the reason Udell had linked to the fisheye menu was because someone else had already made one with Javascript and CSS. Oh well. Read more

Irrefutable logic

Me, wistfully musing out loud: “I wonder if she’s good looking.”

“Who, the weblog girl you’re in love with? Well, she’s had a boyfriend,” Elexa said.

“What do you mean?” I said.

“She can’t be all bad if she’s had boyfriend.”

H�rskisti vaan sarvista kiinni

Pinkoodissa on meininki�. Nuori kaksikymppinen perustaa lehden, l�hett�� siit� lehdist�tiedotteen ja tarjoaa itsest��n l�j�n kuvia vapaaseen julkaisuun. Nuoriherran titteli on tuottaja. Ilman tuota domainia, voisin erehty�, ett� temppu on tehty ilman pilkett� silm�kulmassa.

Benjamin Anastas: An Underachiever’s Diary

“I’ve kissed lots of boys,” she said out of the blue.

“I’ve kissed lots of girls, but then they reject me.”

She buttoned her cardigan against the chill. “I just don’t think I’m ready for a serious relationship. Not until I’m twenty, at least.” Read more

Weblog or blog, not “web blog”

I was only recently convinced “email” should be spelled without a hyphen. I still don’t know if I should spell website “web site,” “website,” “Web site,” or “Website.”

One thing is sure, though: there is no such thing as a “web blog.” Read more

A fast-forwarded history of Denmark

My mother undertook (or was undertaken by) a project this summer in which she studied the local history of Helsinki and put together a tour of sorts for the benefit of guests visiting from abroad. I wasn’t all that appreciative of her endeavour—tourist-y sightseeing isn’t all that high in my priorities—though that might be due more to her habit of spontaneously sharing her newly gained trivia with anyone around the house who couldn’t escape the sound of her voice.

Jealous tongues wagging

From Zoe Trope’s interview at Powells.com:

If Zoe Trope were some other teenager, I would not want to read the book. Fuck her! She's young and famous, and I hate her! People that are jealous of me or just bitter about it, I'm like, "That's so okay." Because I would totally feel the exact same way. It's fine.

She’s so right. Age seventeen and she’s already published her first book. Elexa and I DO hate her. Sort of.

Gotta read Please Don't Kill the Freshman.

Did I really just dream about fascist word processors?

This morning I woke up thinking about an aggressively auto-completing word processor. Read more

My URIs—now with 80% less cruft!

MPT’s entry on the ultimate Weblogging system inspired me to hack off the cruft in my URIs on this site. The URIs are still not perfect, but they’re better.

Obfuscating email addresses

The email link on the right has been obfuscated by Hiveware’s Enkoder Form 6.0. This supposedly makes the address invisible to address harvesting spiders. We shall see.

That box I’d rather not open

I installed a new hard disk after setting up my computer here in Copenhagen. It wasn’t that easy—but with computers, what ever is? Read more
