I found a CSS tip today that was new to me. You can find it as the last item on this CSS Validation Advanced Tips page.

Incase the link ever changes. The tip is to use: element * [att] (p * [href]) to target an element with the specified attribute on it. Targeting any p element with the attribute 'href' on it. Pretty nifty.

I have been perusing javascript articles on keeping method scope and allowing a function from one object to call a function in another object and while keeping the 'this' binding intact. This has proven to be easier said that done.

During my research I found a share-worty article at http://www.robertsosinski.com/2009/04/28/binding-scope-in-javascript/

As for the image used as the thumbnail: I do what I can.

Ztype is a well done typing game that I stumbled across a couple weeks ago via Chrome Experiements. I wanted to see if something similar could be done with flanvas. The prototype can be seen at http://flanvas.com/development/ztype-remix/index.html

I've brushed off the dust of last years flanvas projects and I'm on it again. I'm ramping it up for use with a project I'm going to be helping on that will heavily benefit from something like flanvas.

 

Today I was perusing chromeexperiments.com and re-took account of all the talented developers out there. People have so many clever ideas and it's amazing some of the things they cook up. Here is my personal favorite of the day.

I decided I'm going to make a class for the Flash TextField which lets you animate the garbage out of it. I've already got some simple animations for text fields but I want to get nuts. The biggest thing it will do is break text up from a chunk into individual characters which you can then freely animate using a tweener. It's going to be fun.
