I just wanted to say thanks to the Bob Dylan fans giving me a new peak. I’m usually blessed with a fair amount of visitors, but my post about the Bob Dylan club gig in Stockholm helped me reach almost 5300 unique visitors the same day at the end of March. Thank you!
At the end of last summer, I was invited to try out the new community Trig. And now, at last, the doors are open to the public to take part of it!
I’ve been working with the web for almost 9 years now, and I’ve encountered a spectrum of web developers and their preferred tools during that time. Therefore, it’s always interesting to ask for someone’s favorite editor.

I’m so used to having a
$ method for accessing elements. Nevertheless, the idea is of course that
FlashReplace should be stand-alone, so I replaced it with the standard

Although I didn’t encounter any problems with not using an
embed element (to have valid HTML code output), it has been strongly recommend that I use it to ensure maximum compatibility. Therefore, it has been added and the file size is now 2.1 kb.

I’ve gotten a few e-mails asking how to add variables to the Flash movie, so here are some options:
The simplest way is to just do it through a querystring. I.e. “movieFileName.swf?testVar=hello”.
Another option is to reference the movie and do it something like this:
For some time now I’ve been beta-testing Joost, a TV service through the Internet, and it allows you to choose when to watch which program; basically, total control for the end user.
Something I find increasingly annoying is the fear most companies have when developing a new web site. They don’t dare to try new things, and more importantly, they don’t even want do offer something good. It’s a copy-cat syndrome holding us all back.
The time has finally come for something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. No more ads on this web site! What I will have, though, is the possibility to give something to people in need.
When using floats in CSS, without a doubt you have encountered the interesting effects it will have on the following content. Here I will show you different ways to clear floats without any extra mark-up.
Almost every time I go to a presentation for a new big product/software/web site, I can just count the minutes till some smart executive says those words I, in a bittersweet manner, dread to hear.
Updated April 10th with a couple of features per comment suggestions
Ok, I’ve added a couple of features and settings based on the comments I’ve got. The additional settings are:
- If a click on the

- If the focus should be set to the

Another additional feature is that if you use the arrow keys to navigate the results list, arrow up from the first item as well as arrow down from the last, will set the focus back to the

I got an e-mail with the suggestion to turn off the web browser autocompletion feature of the
input element. I think it was a good idea, so I have now added it as a setting:

Recently in a project I’ve been working on, I stumbled across something that I haven’t seen before: one AJAX call was possible to make in the web page, but after that it stopped working.
It felt like it was time to spice this baby up, so I stayed up way too late Saturday evening (rather, Sunday morning), to put the finishing touches to my new design.
Last Thursday we had another Geek Meet, and as always these days, it was a fair amount of people showing up. This time, for the majority of the people present, it was actually their first Geek Meet. It’s great to see new faces, and the same time, I hope that the bunch of regulars who had to cancel this meeting will be back at the next one, providing to an even bigger group!
