Web Journey’s 3 – Resist the Call

Posted by cidbadguy on October 30, 2007

Its a special Halloween edition! This is my favorite holiday of all time, so I needed to give you guys something special. A few years ago, a videogame called ‘Siren’ was released on the playstation 2. While scary enough by itself, it failed to really catch on, but its European release coincided with this chilling flash site!

You find yourself before a dark alter, with one urn lit. Whichever one is lit first is random, and each will take you into the life of one of four people in a remote Japaneses village. As you explore, you will uncover the hidden truths of this ancient place, and one by one, the flames burn out.

But what happens after they’re all gone?

CSS Play

Posted by johannahg on October 29, 2007

This guy, Stu Nicholls focuses on playing around with CSS and exploring its possibilities. I found it to be very interesting and very helpful. He always places his coding in the #info div to help his viewers see what he did. I was trying to figure out how to display a photo gallery in html that looked modern, and his website had a lot of nice ways to display it.

Here is a CSS Frameworks Roundup. Not really sure how I feel about this. I haven’t looked in to it a lot, but it seems to be a growing trend. What do you think Roni?

100 great free and open source tools and applications for web developers

Posted by larryrussell on October 25, 2007

100 great free and open source tools and applications for web developersis rocking list of resouces for web developers. Have to say though I am really not crazy about NVU. It reformats your html code as soon as you open your page to edit it. There might be a way to turn that “feature” off, but I didn’t look that far.

Forms

Posted by tment894 on October 25, 2007

The Beginner’s Guide to XHTML Forms and HTML XHTML Form Code Tutorial both discuss and visually demonstrate the most essential components that are needed to create a form. I thought these would help supplement what was contained in the Form PPT presentation.
