An Optical Illusion with CSS and Parallax

Marco Kuiper has put together a really cool optical illusion using the CSS parallax technique I posted about a while back. Check out his post and example. Make sure to resize your browser window while you are there, that’s how it works.


Timelapse CSS

Matthew Buchanan came up with a simple yet clever little snippet of javascript that would remove one CSS rule every tenth of a second. He applied this to a webpage, recorded the results and then reversed the footage. The result is a really cool video of a page being “built” one CSS rule at a time. My first thought was “wouldn’t this be a cool bookmarklet?!”. Unfortunately, most browsers don’t allow access to the document.styleSheets part of the DOM from a different host.


How to Build a Maintainable Site using CushyCMS and Twitter

I will definitely be checking that out, seems absolutely perfect for giving access to clients who sorta-kinda know HTML but not how to deal with all the FTP access stuff. Or, for clients who you want to give access to just their site on a larger server hosting many sites, and your host doesn’t allow you to set up limited access users (..cough.. Joyent).
