So I couldn’t get ColoZilla working on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. After checking out the Ubuntu forums and doing some Google search it seems that it doesn’t work for 64-bit versions of Ubuntu. The solution is to use gcolor2. You can get it via the Ubuntu Software Center or via the command line with:
sudo aptitude install gcolor2
It’s a separate application that functions the same as ColorZilla, so you will have to switch from window to window to get the color picker. Not really ideal but its a solution for me.
If anyone knows of any working color pickers for Firefox, please share. Thanks.
Web developers have waited for what seems like ages for this month to come along. Internet Explorer remains ahead of the rest of the competition, but since month after month it continues to lose ground to all other browsers, Firefox has now finally surpassed IE6, which is easily the most hated version of Microsoft’s browser. Firefox’s steady gain continues, Safari remains in a nonthreatening third place, Chrome is happily carving out a small niche for itself, and poor Opera can’t seem to budge from fifth place. In October, all browsers except for IE and Opera showed positive growth.
TechCrunch has made my day with this post!
This is pretty cool.
Starting on or about the third week of April, users still running IE6 or IE7 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 will get will get a notification through Automatic Update about IE8. This rollout will start with a narrow audience and expand over time to the entire user base. On Windows XP and Server 2003, the update will be High-Priority. On Windows Vista and Server 2008 it will be Important.
I just really hope all the IE6 users accept this update!
I just launched another one of my sites, halaltunes.com, which happens to be my first site built from scratch using a Flash MP3 player. The Flash MP3 player uses php to search a directory for all mp3 files. It uses the mp3′s file artist name and track title as the info for it’s playlist. This is different then most of the XML Flash MP3 players making the user have to enter all that info. This makes it easy, because all I have to do is upload the directory of MP3s.
I also used jQuery JS to handle the menu. It basically does an AJAX call depending on what the user selects and tells the flash player to go to the directory the user selected. It was pretty simple to write up.
This is just the beginning. I hope to add more features in the future. Your suggestions and comments are welcome.
Well they probably didn’t really copy, they probably just found the same theme as myself and edited it of course.
I built this new website for a mosque in Silver Spring. Check it out here. It’s using WordPress and a free theme that I found that was hacked to fit their needs.
Still needs some minor tweaking.
So today Microsoft released IE8. This is good news for all those IE users (which is only about half the users online). Unfortunately many people are still using IE6. I understand some companies require it but IE 8 is out now and I’m almost positive your software can work on IE 7. If the software you are using doesn’t work on IE7, then the you should question those in charge of providing the software.
As a web developer, accommodating IE6 is really annoying and at times painful. We still do this for our clients sine almost 25% of the users worldwide are using IE6. This was understandable but by now many of them should upgrade to at least IE7. So if your company is still using IE6, please for the sake of all the web designers and developers around the world, put it to rest!
It’s very simple. Just add the code below to the end of the value and embed src part of the embed code.
Where exactly are the ‘value’ and ‘embed src’ tags? Look for these items in the code:
…………..value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/wmaTyD7NnCI&hl=en&fs=1&ap=%2526fmt%3D18“……….embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/wmaTyD7NnCI&hl=en&fs=1&ap=%2526fmt%3D18” ………
Try it out!
