I’ve been spending the weekend on a new project - Just My Type.
It’s a growing collection of font combinations that I love, along with some pretty nice colour schemes to boot.
If any designers out there have suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Email me at dan.eden@me.com or tweet me.

The Grid.
I’ve got an awful lot to learn about the grid, layout, composition and typography before I can call myself a real designer. But I am pretty proud of the grid on use on my website.

Toast.css - a simple and tasty framework

I made something for the internet. I call it Quotable. Look at it here. It uses one HTML file, a few CSS files and absolutely nothing else (except the fonts).

Microsoft are terrible for this.
The first property is opacity, a CCS2 (yes, 2) property that is unsupported by IE (until 9).
The second property is filter, a Microsoft propriety property (try saying that ten times fast) that works in IE5-7 and is actually quite nice syntactically.
The third property is -ms-filter, another propriety property that is *only* supported in IE8.
First off, *why* on earth would Microsoft make both their lives and the lives of developers more difficult by not supporting opacity as it is? And second, and this is the weird one, why the heck would they replace a perfectly good albeit propriety property with a much more complex propriety property for only one version of IE?
I’m glad that Microsoft are finally recognizing some web standards but seriously, they made so many mistakes on the way.

On a sidenote, Microsoft won’t be supporting the text-shadow property either - another CSS2 property (note that text-shadow was dropped in CSS2.1, but support continued on browsers and it was reintroduced in CSS3).

WTHIDELT is a little thing I just made in about 10 minutes - it’s an experiment of HTML, CSS3 and Javascript that shows the last thing I listened to on iTunes/Last.fm
Real artwork currently doesn’t work, but I’m working on it. Everything except the images making up the album is pure code - including the font.
Don’t ask me why I chose to make the font pink - it just happened.
