Some interesting links

Here’s some random URLs I thought might be interesting:

Browse Happy
A website explaining why Internet Explorer is unsafe for use on the web. Unlike most other websites of its kind it is not favoring any particular ‘alternative'(read: broadly safe) browser, but instead provides a list of alternatives and a possitive description of each.

sorttable: Make all your tables sortable
This site has a nifty looking piece of Java script which instantly allows any table on the web-page to be sorted by any column by defining it to be of the class ‘sortable’. Since this is Java-script the sorting is done client-side so no need to resubmit the page for re-ordering nor will it whore over the server its running on with lots of needless(at least as far as serving web-pages is concerned) sorts. Unofficial APT repositories
A place to share usefull (Unofficial) repositories for Debian.

Simple PHP Blog
The software my original Blog was using – no SQL needed, it’s all stored as text files. Easy to configure and update – just decompress and go. Fantastic! My only gripe is that most of the themes are fixed-width, and the only non fixed-width theme is not configurable wrt colours. Creating themes doesn’t appear to be very straight forward either, unfortunately. Maybe I’ll have to write my own blog software which only uses CSS for theming, so creating a new theme simply means modifying a CSS file… hmm, yet another project I’ll probably never finish.
