Recently I faced the problem of either creating my own 16 square pixel icons, or use others. I started looking into how other services have solved the problem, and I realized after looking at Socialthing! that the best solution is also the most obvious and simple one: Just import the site’s own favicons! Here are… Continue reading Get perfect Web 2.0 16x16px icons quickly!
IE6 & IE7 Doctypes problem
All browsers have their flaws, that’s for sure. But sometimes you see pure stupidity, and then it might be worth writing something about it. If a web page doesn’t have a doctype, it usually means that the page is either very old or created by someone that don’t care or doesn’t know anything about doctypes.… Continue reading IE6 & IE7 Doctypes problem
Annoying Firefox+Firebug anchor bug
UPDATE 2008-03-20: This bug is easily resolved by upgrading to the latest Beta version of Firebug (currently 1.1). Thanks to PatternHead! I’ve experienced this bug for quite a while now, and it is really annoying. Basically you can’t inspect an anchor in Firebug, and there’s no way around it. Today I had enough and decided… Continue reading Annoying Firefox+Firebug anchor bug
Back in Boulder!
For those that haven’t heard, the swedish TechStar is now back in Boulder for 3 months. I’m working hard at our new (not very shiny but OK offices) on 1980 8th St, feel free to drop by. It’s good to be back.

New year, more work
It’s amazing how some things change rapidly and how others.. Well, doesn’t change at all. It’s 2008 and I still work as hard as ever. One thing’s for certain: This is the year.

border: 1px solid; magic!
I don’t know if this is common knowledge among webdesigners, but this was all new for me. If you don’t select a color for a border, just say “border: 1px solid;” (for example) it will inherit the color of the current object. I’ve checked this in Firefox 2 and Opera 9, and it really works… Continue reading border: 1px solid; magic!
Flash Movie Controls – Play/Pause Button
I’m not very experienced in Flash. I can do basic movies with tweens, some playback buttons and maybe one or two animations, but that’s pretty much it. For a recent project however, I had to do a pause button. Now this might seem like an easy task, but it isnt. A pause button must both… Continue reading Flash Movie Controls – Play/Pause Button
