  1. Offline folders - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

    The hidden (in that you have to create it) Thunderbird setting to have it store copies of IMAP messages locally.

  2. Abort, Retry, or EPIC FAIL

    On the increasingly annoying “FAIL!” meme. Half my friends on Twitter sound interchangeable these days, as if they must regurgitate this month’s coolest phrases or look like losers.

  3. BBC - BBC Three - TV Listings

    TV listings done as a slowly whizzy (and pointless) Flash thing. Is there really *nothing* more useful that BBC staff could be doing? (via Haddock)

  4. - projects

    “… a native cocoa mail client that uses the Mozilla mail/news library and the gecko browser view that Camino uses.” Early days.

  5. TCPDF - PHP Class for PDF

    Yet another PDF-generating PHP class. An improvement on FPDF (does UTF-8 for a start), but I had some problems getting tables to look just how I wanted.

  6. The Lost Tools of Learning

    Dorothy L. Sayers suggested reviving the Trivium — grammar, rhetoric and dialectic — as children’s education. Learning how to learn, rather than learning subjects.

  7. How to Learn Math and Physics

    Recommendations of books to take you through the main topics of physics and maths. Oh for much, much more time.

  8. Daf Yomi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “… a daily regimen undertaken to study the Babylonian Talmud one folio (a daf consists of both sides of the page) each day.” Would take 7.5 years. (via Haddock)

  9. FlickrSLiDR - Embed Flickr Slideshows within Your Site

    Very nice way to include a slideshow of Flickr images in your website.

    Happy, happy: Discovered the front page header image was being included secretly on all 155 rtf pages. Removed it and zippety fast. Bed now.

    After all that... script for generating a rather large .rtf file times out before it can complete. This weekend looking increasingly short.

    Ooooww, that hail must HURT if you're outside. Eeesh.

    Ugh. The hyper "kids" at college driving me up the bloody wall today. Home, and to the relative sanity of PHP. Not a bank holiday.
