to Em³ for helping me fix the archive page which has been broken since the upgrade to WordPress 2. Would you believe that all it took was the addition of Sören Weber’s Exec-PHP plugin? No, me neither. But there you go.
The deadline for signing up to the BrowserCam annual subscription to the Premium service is fast approaching, just a few places left so leave a comment if you’re interested.
Also, if you’re keen to learn php (from beginner level) or css (from intermediate level) and would like to join a study group, let me know and I’ll point you in the right direction. The text for the css group will either be CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions (Andy Budd, Simon Collison, Cameron Moll) or More Eric Meyer on CSS.
And now for the rant
The price for CSS Mastery is $22.04 on Amazon.com (that’s £11.86) but to buy it from Amazon.co.uk it costs £22.79, a whopping $42.36, almost double the price! Why?
I’ve foregone the pleasure of tucking myself up on the sofa with a pot of tea and a book by buying the CSS Mastery book direct from the publisher, Friends of Ed, as an e-book but…
There are quite a few errata. Fine, I can understand the need to get books out quickly in today’s market but why can’t they be corrected in the downloadable e-book? They’re password protected to prevent text editing (okay, I can highlight and notate text) but surely someone could have spent an hour amending the source files and creating a new pdf for download? Send me the files and I’ll do it!
