Pretty cool utility ;-)
_ Test your Web design in different browsers – Browsershots

Browsershots makes screenshots of your Web design in different browsers. It is a free open-source online service created by Johann C. Rocholl. When you submit your Web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your Web site in their browser. Then they will make screenshots and upload them to the central server here.

Hat tip to Steve, who finally has a blog, dammit!

Impossible is Nothing

Standard

Great Wed morning reminder ;-)
_ Greatest Ad Campaign ever: Impossible is Nothing « David Adewumi

“Some people listen to themselves rather than listening to what others say.These people don’t come along very often, but when they do, they remind us, that once you set out on a path, even though critics may doubt you, its ok to believe, that there is no can’t, won’t, or impossible. They remind us, that it’s OK to believe, impossible … is nothing.”

Checkout the new coda.coza: Presenting v6

Respek for Damien, he’s produced something fresh and easy on the eyes ;-)
_ Presenting v6 – blog – coda.coza

My previous design lasted for almost half of that time. Despite its shortcomings (lack of a feature-rich CMS) and obvious design flaws, and given the amount of recognition that it received, I became hesitant to change it much. Until the waves of spam attacks began.

Since my blog was running on a bespoke system, it became increasingly difficult and time-consuming to manage, which partly explains why I haven’t been posting as regularly.

So after a tricky data migration and clean-up (the volume of crap I’ve written in the past 6 years is embarrassing), a tiresome metadata capturing process (adding titles and tags to 770 posts), and a couple of design revisions later, this blog has undergone a complete overhaul and is now powered by WordPress 2.5.1 with a super collection of plugins.

Ever seen Web2.0 in Arabic?

Standard

I’m extremely proud to say that due to some hard work from Ali in our office, we’ve released Arabic into Kindo… so now you get web2.0 family tree building and family social networking in Arabic, and 11 other languages…

Pretty neat eh? ;-) Check it out and blow your mind…
