Untitled [PHP Advent 2009]

Matt Mullenweg with a collection of PHP aphorisms. I might have missed the point, but I enjoyed reading, er, skimming it.

We Become What We Behold [ChangeOrder]

David adds another log to the living-in-the-digital-moment-rots-your-mind fire, not that he would say it like that (nor, really, would anyone else — it's quite a mouthful). I can't disagree, especially when Dosteovsky and McLuhan are referenced.

Going Nuts with CSS Transitions [24 ways]

More CSS ammo for those willing to use it.

Rock Solid HTML Emails [24 ways]

If only these hacks, hints, and tips weren't so necessary.

Self-Testing Pages with JavaScript [24 ways]

Sounds like a great idea. I'll, uh … get right on that.

Focusing on the Climb [ChangeOrder]

Character Sets: Garbage In, Garbage Out [PHP Advent 2009]
