With death comes rebirth....

Penny Haslops new wordpress blog
After all this time (of being lazy really), I'm sad, yet equally happy to announce my blog has moved to a new permanent address.

It's had a makeover, and the good old wp procedure- so things are looking up for the old girl, and she's about to see a lot more action.

What livejournal says you want for x-mas...

On the twelfth day of Christmas, blackangelrose sent to me...
Twelve cats drumming
Eleven anubis piping
Ten bats a-leaping
Nine headbangers dancing
Eight tomatoes a-milking
Seven candles a-sleeping
Six hugs a-biting
Five anxi-i-i-iety whispers
Four magic mushrooms
Three electric blankets
Two incarnated elementals
...and a blat in a psychology.
Get your own Twelve Days:

How do you PHP?


PHP Talk has a great list of Interview Questions for PHP Programmers which may be a good list to keep coming back to- it gets pretty hard pretty quickly!
Might also be a great resource for our Intro to Programming stuff or for those of us creating our own games and learning activities!

Did you know there are currently hundreds of available mobile browsers? Anyone tried cross-browser testing yet?

I think I was speaking with Kevin about designing for mobiles yesterday, and came across a link to an article about Nokia releasing the source code for their S60 OSS Browser posted on Dave Shea's mezzoblue.

This browser enables smartphone users to browse full Web pages on a smartphone screen with features such as:

* Preservation of the original page layout, presented just as the Web site designer intended;
* Easy navigation of Web pages through page miniatures, reducing the amount of scrolling;
* Pop-up blocking, enhanced start page, and simplified menus;
* Visual History, an easy-to-use back function, showing miniature views of previous pages;
* Text Search, which works as you type, taking you directly to the interesting part of the page;
* Dynamic HTML, supporting dynamic menus, rollovers, and scripted behavior such as AJAX applications;
* Extensive support of industry standards including W3C's HTML, XHTML 1.0, DOM, CSS and SVG-Tiny; other Web standards such as SSL and ECMAScript; and Netscape style plug-ins such as Flash Lite and audio.
This could mean a standards compliant base for all browsers made for mobile devices! Good news for all of us!
