    Everything Changes

    Motivated by a number of reasons, I’ve begun to move everything from my old VPS to what has been my development server until recently.

    Leeds Festival 2010

    Just recovered, so thought I’d post some ramblings for this year. Various high points were: Colin; gin jam; Jacob and Alf shopping for nothing but sweets; the wind and its army of shopping bags; back on form with brie and crackers; staying at the main stage missing plenty of good bands; acting like we were 16 again; when gazebos attack; a night of rum leading to much destruction; that man’s dressed all in red; wrestling ring during Limp Bizkit; breaking glasses again; general debauchery and merriment.

    Things I Learnt Today

    That Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw is a goon; that his early stuff is, if anything, funnier than his paid stuff for The Escapist; that I there will always be something on the Internet that I haven’t seen, and that someone will think I have been living under a rock to have missed it.

    Get a Grid for Transparent Images in Firefox

    Here’s a useful bit of Firefox hackery for you all. It puts a checkerboard (or chequerboard, for you elitists) image as the background for your transparent images. It works for any image when viewed directly in Firefox, by checking for a HTML page containing a single img tag. If you reproduce this structure manually, then you’ll see the checkerboard, but there’s very little chance that a legitimate HTML page would match these selectors.
