About to go to bed

…yes I know, it’s a long time since I retired before midnight but had to point you in the direction of this post from Mary. You might have seen the advert before but Mary’s intro is genius.

Also in the radar, the new Aardvark extension for Firefox. Even if you have Chris Pederick’s Web Developer installed, you might like to add this on because (at first glance, I’ll have a proper look this week) it looks as if you can point to the source code behind a specified section rather than searching for it in what is sometimes an offputtingly long chunk of code. At least to us noobies.

I also installed ColorZilla last week, haven’t had a chance to use it properly but basically it’s an eyedropper tool that sits in the bottom of your browser window ready to tell you – hang on, they say it better:

With ColorZilla you can get a color reading from any point in your browser, quickly adjust this color and paste it into another program. You can Zoom the page you are viewing and measure distances between any two points on the page. The built-in palette browser allows choosing colors from pre-defined color sets and saving the most used colors in custom palettes.

Glasgow folks and visitors fond of a good fryup might want to bookmark this post on Cafe D’Jaconelli while those interested in photography will want to bookmark this new blog, A moment’s notice: streetphotography and beyond. Not too many photos there yet (just started this month) but I do like this picture of a junkyard.

Okey dokey, I’m taking these tired, car-bootified bones off to bed. G’night.

    Now that is a lovely junkyard, very cozy and friendly. Thanks for the link, and so glad you got a good laugh.
