  4. Centricle : css filters (css hacks)

    A big colourful pit of nasty CSS hacks.

  5. Johannes Koch’s How to hide CSS from buggy browsers page

    The URL that almost every website points to is now broken and this is the new home, which is a bugger to find.

  6. Japanese

    Insanely complex interface, but very handy.

  7. Magpie RSS - PHP RSS Parser

    I’ll need this at some point I’m sure.

    Throughout history cities have been an hour’s travel across. I’m not convinced

    Wonderful aerial photo view of London with the tube lines overlaid on top. Crossed off the to do list.

    Beautifully minimal, customisable UK TV listings, including XML versions.

  11. MT Tag Quick Reference

    MovableType help in your browser’s sidebar (Netscape 6 /Mozilla or PC IE 5 or a framed version for everyone else).

    Creative Commons photo library. Ideal for illustrating that presentation, website, etc.

    Soul Sides has started posting

  20. Techquila Shots: Topic Mapping Pepys’ Diary

    Creating XML topic maps of Pepys’ Diary entries. This makes my head hurt in a very good way.

  22. Mountain Goats sessions MP3s

    If you only try one go for ‘Dance Music’ or ‘Your Belgian Things’.

  23. Pepys’ Diary: The story so far is now up to date
