    isn't there a css3 filter for blur?
    Just checked syntax and tried it, no support in Chrome with or without vendor prefixing so practically speaking there isn't. I actually didn't think about filters though, thanks for the thought.

    The blur filter is apparently only supported in Chrome's alpha version at the moment: http://css-plus.com/2012/03/gaussian-blur/ (scroll down to "I think you could use it now actually").

    I'm not really very good with websites (I prefer desktop/mobile programming!) but I've been playing with javascript canvas for a bit and threw this together (open it for the animation)

    It feels like my computer is running in slow motion. When I looked at the picture I was expecting the BAZ logo to rotate around or something, I don't think the moving background image works at all well in its current state.

    Been working on a new Facebook app similar to "Draw Something" but with all your friends at once. Done it all in HTML5 so it should work accross all devices. Destructive testing and all feedback is welcome, but please let me know if you find anything serious.

    I know the layout is shocking at the moment, i'm going to hire a proper web designer once I get the functionality properly implemented.

    I'm not really any good at design but I wanted a website for a simple blog/place to host shit so I tried to design one, trying to make it as simple as possible. I feel like something is off but I don't know what, I was hoping someone here who has an eye for design might give me some feedback.



    I think the background is too colourful or something, but I replaced it with something from subtlepatterns.com and it looked too black and white.

    The blog posts are definitely what doesn't look right, a border of some sort and possibly a different font would make everything look better

    I reckon the V should be moved to the right so that it's top right corner mirrors the top left of the Z, sorta like this (sorry for the crooked stroke):

    So I decided to dump the blur (too big a hack - resizing from top-left corner created some rather interesting jerking motions that I can only think would be caused by the resize event being called BEFORE it actually resizes, so I fucked it off) and make it into a window style. I just finished the tab selector style for it too, at least for left-mounted tabs (I'll have support for left, top and bottom, but left is easily the hardest)

    Once I've converted the tab selector into a functioning widget, I'll start on a custom scrollbar too. I haven't had this much fun in ages :D


    Also, I just installed all the browsers again (FF11, IE9, Opera 11.62) and tested - had to change some code to use JQuery instead of native to get it to work in IE9, and added a background fallback for browsers that don't support multiple background images or linear gradients too (since IE9 doesn't - IE10 apparently does), but it works in all four now and looks fine. Testing in Firefox also fixed a bug with the tabs being the wrong height in non-Chrome browsers, as I wasn't manually specifying the height. Chrome just happened to have it right.

    A friend of mine has this facebook page where he posts a fact every day (Ronan's Interesting Fact of the Day) and I think it could be a good idea for a site, given that all the other 'daily facts' sites have shit design and aren't nice to use. What do you guys think of something simple like this:


    http://i.imgur.com/PhHHb.png (bigger)

    I think it would be quite easy to make it nice and responsive because it's so simple, and I think I'll make it so that the orange can be changed to other nice pastelly colours

    The code (as in the JS) is untidy as fuck right now but it's nice and usable (I always worry about people thinking my code is bad holy shit) and I didn't link the PT fonts from Google Fonts but w/e you get the point, right?

    Also, anyone got any ideas or inspiration for nice scrollbars? I'm pretty sure I know how I'll do it code-wise but I just can't think of a good and fitting style for it. I was actually thinking that when I put content into it I could just avoid scrollbars entirely and instead use carousels where there's a selection of items to pick that I don't want to display all at once.

    Fixed it by doing, err, something. Not sure exactly what. Stack trace was huge, and it resolved itself before I got around to redirect it to a file. With some luck, it won't happen again. If it does, I'll make sure to get the stack trace.

    In other news, I'm working on a DCPU emulator in coffeescript. Not much to show yet, but it's already partially working.

    had a look at the code

    wasn't impressed

    Edited:

    mind you, this was way back when it first came out. It looks like it's improved somewhat since

    Edited:

    also work uses wordpress as a cms, rather than strictly a blog so something as simple as obtvse wouldn't cut it anyway

    Sorry for sounding like an idiot but how do you make websites have this simple look to them? Like do you make a lot of that stuff using code or do you go into photoshop and make the designs yourself or what? I really want to make a nice website :(
