  1. Citybound - The Beginning

    SimCity-style game, in progress, being written in JavaScript and WebGL. Looks big, interesting, promising. (via Stellar)

  2. Absolute Positioning and Horizontal/Vertical Centering

    Using CSS alone, no JS. I’m waiting for the inevitable real-world use in which this won’t work. There must be one. Surely. There usually is. (via @jamesweiner)

  3. Maintenance

    After all that… TextDrive is finally disappearing on March 14th. I now have a lot to do in the next ten days.

    @gilest A shame Roo Sheret’s voice is so quiet he needs a mic all the time, but that’s how I tell them apart. Oh, or is that Matt Reynolds?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @rooreynolds So Matt is the one always wearing a hat and Roo is the one not wearing a hat?

    @antimega @holgate Whoever sets up first gets to offer the other(s) their affiliate link!

    @holgate @antimega Still happy with Tuffmail. Glad I’ve got them separate at times like this.

    Was he a Blitz Kid @BoyGeorge?

    @holgate @antimega Thanks. I’ve had a quick go with WF before. Do you know what memory we have on TD?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @holgate @antimega A bit pricey for my several low traffic sites. I’m also wary of something brand new.

    @paulpod How about a 1746 map? locatinglondon.org

    Bugger. MT @antimega: Looks like Textdrive is finally crashing and burning. discuss.textdrive.com
    Alternatives?…That's the weekend gone :/

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @antimega Oh piss. I might give Webfaction a go. Yeah, good job I don’t have weekend plans. Thanks for heads-up.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore Yeah, sounds like my likely move. I might be alright with the free plan for Pepys and upgrades seem reasonable.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore Yeah, annoying. I haven’t looked into what to do yet. Let me know if you have any clever ideas.

    @waxpancake I want to see what's on the fourth wall of all the studio-filmed sitcoms. Eg, what horrors were hidden from view in Friends?
