  • Global Positioning System – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – A number of sources of error exist due to relativistic effects[69] that would render the system useless if uncorrected. Three relativistic effects are the time dilation, gravitational frequency shift, and eccentricity effects. For example, the relativistic time slowing due to the speed of the satellite of about 1 part in 1010, the gravitational time dilation that makes a satellite run about 5 parts in 1010 faster than an Earth based clock, and the Sagnac effect due to rotation relative to receivers on Earth. These topics are examined below, one at a time.
  • The Bottom Feeder: How I Saved the Gaming Industry Overnight By Being Awesome – There's a web site out there called RPG Codex. They write about me a lot, sometimes even kindly. There is something they said about me recently that I wanted to respond to. Not to criticize, but to comment on. I think there are things to be learned about Indie gaming and game development in general. (Emphasis mine.)

  • jQuery.popeye 2.0 | an inline lightbox alternative – jQuery.popeye is an advanced image gallery script built on the JavaScript library jQuery. Use it to save space when displaying a collection of images and offer your users a nice and elegant way to show a big version of your images without leaving the page flow.<br />
    <br />
    Though the script is quick and easy to setup, it offers great flexibility in both behaviour and styling.<br />
    <br />
    It was designed as an alternative to the often-seen JavaScript image lightbox (see Lightbox 2, Fancybox or Colorbox, just to name a few). What they all have in common: they employ a modal window to display the large images, thus disrupting the workflow of the user interacting with a webpage.<br />
    <br />
    jQuery.popeye takes a different approach: not only allows it for browsing all thumbnails as well as the large images in a single image space, it also repects the page flow and stays anchored and rooted in the webpage at all times, thus giving a less disruptive user experience than modal windows.

  • WordOff – Wordoff applies the following rules to strip the cruft that is pasted into WYSIWYG editors from Word:<br />

    * <span>s and <div>s are removed<br />
    * Empty elements are removed<br />
    * Consecutive line breaks are reduced to two<br />

  • About | Designing User Experience – When I grow up I want to be a technical writer, web developer, user experience designer, information architect, and an instructional designer for adult education. <br />
    <br />
    I just want to start learning information through osmosis. I’d like to be a brilliant expert by tomorrow, please. And I spend about $2000 a year buying books in an effort to become one someday. I want to be buried with my web design library, and if Heaven doesn’t have an O’Reilly or Sitepoint warehouse, I’m afraid I can do without it.<br />
    <br />
    Take an enthusiastic, ambitious, overzealous, and at times hyper student of just about everything, and give her a copy of WordPress and a domain. This is what you end up with.

  • Artwork Samples – The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

  • VoucherPress – a WordPress plugin for creating downloadable, printable vouchers – stillbreathing.co.uk – website design and development – VoucherPress is a WordPress plugin that allows you to give downloadable, printable vouchers in PDF format away on your site. Download the VoucherPress plugin here.<br />
    <br />
    Have you ever wanted to give away vouchers or tokens on your website? If so this plugin is for you. You can create a voucher with whatever text you want, choosing the layout and font from a range of templates (you can also add your own templates). Vouchers can then be viewed, downloaded and printed from a specified URL.<br />
    <br />
    There are shortcodes to add a link to a particular voucher, or to show an unordered list of all your vouchers.<br />
    <br />
    You can require visitors to provide their name and email address to get a voucher. If an email address is required an email is sent to the address with a link to the voucher URL. Each voucher has a unique code, and vouchers that have an email address associated with them can only be used once, so once a registration-required voucher is downloaded it can’t be downloaded again.

  • 12 Tools To Check Your Site’s Accessibility – When you design any web site, one of your first goals is to make sure you get as many visitors as you can, but have you checked the true accessibility of your site? Can a color blind person read it? Are all of your scripts cooperating? Your colors may look nice together, but is the contrast different enough that it is all legible? Well, those questions are exactly what these 12 tools are designed to help you answer, and it certainly may never be a bad idea to run more than one to make sure they are all telling you the same thing.<br />
    <br />
    One caveat to this list, while these tools are helpful and will help you spot some problems, never trust them to be the ultimate authority, but more of a starting point on your road to the smoothest running site you can build.
