Add some style to your HTML forms

I ran across this article at AEXT Design Magazine yesterday and thought I’d share it with you.

CSS text-indent: An Excellent Trick To Style Your HTML Form

I never thought of using CSS text-indent with forms before.

10 easy tips that will help you create better print style

Print style sheets have been somewhat forgotten, and yet they remain important all the same. Many people print out articles to read while traveling or when they have no access to the Internet.
Print style sheets have definite benefits. For example, reading on paper is less tiring on the eyes than reading on screen.
Also, following tutorials is easier if you have one next to you, with your code editor open on the screen; that way, you don’t have to switch windows every time to look something up.

When to show inline validation

A List ApartI’ve recently been reviewing usability of web forms and came across this article on A list Apart. Inline Validation in Web Forms

The wonderful thing about this article is they show eye tracking results and web form efficiency using different types of inline validation (After, While and Before). They actually time how long it takes users to fill out the same for using different methods of validation. We’ve actually had this exact argument in the office trying to decide which method was best.

Thank you for settling an ongoing dispute LukeW and everyone at A List Apart

All the World’s a Stage

Ever wanted to learn to play “Tom Sawyer” or “Limelight” on the guitar? Ever dreamed of being Alex Lifeson on stage ripping out hit after hit? Well you’ll most likely never make it on stage but at least now you can play exactly like Alex. Garageband ’09 has added new lessons for both songs from one of Rush’s greatest albums, Moving Pictures.

You can buy both new lessons in Garageband ’09 for $5 each

Upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard was simple easy and quick

Everything went smoothly, all of my apps worked great. Loved the subtle interface changes, loved how quick everything loads. I really like the sharing features in itunes 9 and the new quicktime interface is great.
All was well on my MacBook Pro until I got to work and tried to mount my dev platform using MacFusion.

MacFusion now refuses to complete a connection to a remote server.

With the help of a post I found at Racker Hacker,
you can fix this in two steps:

First, quit MacFusion.

Second, open System Preferences and then open the MacFUSE pane. Check the “Show Beta Versions” box and click “Check For Updates”. Go ahead and update MacFUSE.

Third, open up a terminal and do the following:

rm /Applications/Macfusion.app/Contents/PlugIns/sshfs.mfplugin/Contents/Resources/sshnodelay.so

Your MacFusion installation should now be working on Snow Leopard. My SSH and FTP seem to work fine now.

Thanks Racker Hacker

PlaySafe iPhone App

Matt Rosoff of CNET has posted an early review of the Zune HD

After a few hours on Tuesday of playing with the Zune HD that Microsoft sent me, I found a lot of things I like about it–the slim size, the Quickplay user interface feature that gives you immediate access to recently added and favorite songs, the big on-screen volume controls, and the Zune Pass, for example. But the Web browser seems like an afterthought.

The Wall Street Journal

Apple’s iTunes program is one of the most popular software products in the world. The company says hundreds of millions of copies of iTunes have been downloaded, far exceeding the 220 million iPod music players it has sold. That’s because many people use iTunes to organize, play and buy music and videos on their computers, or to burn music CDs, even if they don’t own iPods or iPhones. Ironically, the vast majority of iTunes copies are on Windows PCs, not Apple’s own Macintosh computers, because Windows machines are much more numerous.
