  • Limes & Lycopene – About Limes & Lycopene | Kathryn Elliott – Limes & Lycopene is all about food, health and how to eat well.<br />
    <br />
    While there’s a glut of information about what you should be eating to be healthy, lose weight and have plenty of energy. It’s the practicalities of how you actually do this that most people struggle with. If you’re busy, work long hours and are not an experienced cook how do you buy, prepare and eat the best food for you?<br />
    <br />
    If your response to most healthy eating advice is “just tell me what to eat” then Limes & Lycopene is for you. On this site I aim to cut through all the guff and misinformation about healthy eating. Instead I focus on practical solutions and making your diet better than it is.
  • PHP Template Inheritance – Template Inheritance is an extremely useful technique for making reusable HTML layouts for a site. It is much more flexible than alternative techniques, such as “including” common elements of a page (like a header and footer file).<br />
    <br />
    The concept has been around for a while, most notably in the Django template engine. Unlike other libraries, PHP Template Inheritance lets you write everything in straight PHP. There is no need to learn another template language.

  • My Love/Hate Affair With Typekit – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report – Speeding up design acceptance<br />
    <br />
    While browser improvements and web standards alone provided multiple partial solutions, Typekit offered a complete solution that just worked. And the people behind Typekit (including Bryan Mason and Jason Santa Maria) did everything right: they reached out to the type design, graphic design, and standards-based web design communities; they worked with vendor after vendor to offer as many fonts as possible; they spoke everywhere, marketing their venture one lecture and even one designer at a time.<br />
    <br />
    Typekit excited the web design community about type and proved that licensing and hosting web type was a viable business, providing options and convenience for designers and their clients, while bringing new revenue to type designers and protecting their intellectual property.

    <br />

  • Fun with JavaScript: jQuery and Konami Code | Your Inspiration Web – Today we’re going to take a small leap back in time to the year 1985, when a Konami developer (Kazuhisa Hashimoto) created the first version of Gradius (a video game for the Nintendo console). During game trials, Kazuhisa realized that it was really difficult to complete, and so he created a code which immediately gave the player all possible power-ups.

  • httpd, the Apache HTTP server – The Apache HTTP Server is a “heavy duty” network server that Subversion can leverage. Via a custom module, httpd makes Subversion repositories available to clients via the WebDAV/DeltaV protocol, which is an extension to HTTP 1.1 (see http://www.webdav.org/ for more information.) This protocol takes the ubiquitous HTTP protocol that is the core of the World Wide Web, and adds writing—specifically, versioned writing—capabilities. The result is a standardized, robust system that is conveniently packaged as part of the Apache 2.0 software, is supported by numerous operating systems and third-party products, and doesn't require network administrators to open up yet another custom port. [22] While an Apache-Subversion server has more features than svnserve, it's also a bit more difficult to set up. With flexibility often comes more complexity.

  • My Secret To Dominating Digg.com (years ago) – Shoemoney – Skills To Pay The Bills – Ok I have a story to share… one I been telling for a while for fun and always meant to post but just never gotten around to it.<br />
    <br />
    I used to be addicted to try to make the front page of digg… but I often had trouble hitting the front page. Sure it would happen every other month or so but it took a lot of work. Then in 2007 one month I made it 5 times… including 2 times in the SAME DAY on Feb 21st 2007:

  • Coupon Codes and Lost Revenue » Checkout Optimization – In this post we’ll be looking at how coupon codes (used synonymously here with promo and discount codes) can cause retailers to lose revenue. I’ll share some (hopefully) interesting trends that I’m seeing with a client I work with, and hopefully start a discussion with how to turn lost revenue into gained revenue.<br />
    <br />
    Before getting to things, I am not claiming the following:<br />
    <br />
    * That coupon codes decrease revenue<br />
    * That retailers should remove coupon code support from checkout<br />
    * That retailers should stop using coupon codes<br />
    <br />
    In fact, the retailer that I reference below recently had their best week ever through offsite marketing channels thanks to a promotional effort that relied on coupon codes. Further, they actually saw their margin increase while discounting products.<br />
    <br />
    Now with that out of the way…

  • Multiple DropBox Instances on Windows 7 (or Vista) – We recently had a need to run two DropBox instances concurrently on a few of our Windows 7/Vista workstations (if you are running Mac or Linux there are alternate methods to do this documented here. If you are running an older version of Windows, this may work for you. We've not tested either of these alternate methods so can't vouch for them.).
  • ..: ohohlfeld.com : blog » Running WordPress behind Apache mod_proxy – WordPress 2.3 (the blog software I’m using) introduced the concept of canonical URLs, which caused a problem on my host after upgrading. To sum it up, there are many possible ways to access an article or a page in WordPress and the concept of canonical URLs will redirect pages to the permanent link specified in the settings. After upgrading to WordPress >2.3, my blog was no longer reachable, due to an infinite redirection loop:
