Nose Licks and Tail Wags

Friday, September 24th, 2004

Nose Licks and Tail Wags is a site devoted to dogs. I mainly decided to feature it because I thought it might appeal to Hazel, one of our htmlfixit.com guest authors who occasionally posts. Cheers Don

So I Guess htmlfixit is our “sex”

Thursday, September 23rd, 2004

gapingvoid: the sex & cash theory is interesting. The guy explains the natural tension in life between what we want to do and what we have to do. Some get lucky and find the blend. I think retirement may allow the sex to overtake the cash, but by then so many people are tired, cynical […]

Fighting silly patents.

Tuesday, September 21st, 2004

The battle has started between those interested in software innovation and those interested in lining their pockets to the detriment of everything else. The battlefield is the patenting of non specific ideas. To give you an idea of the problem, say for example I had patented the idea of burning a flammable substance and using […]

The Incredibles — The Official Movie Website

Tuesday, September 14th, 2004

The Incredibles — The Official Movie Website is up and running counting down the days til the movies release. If there is one thing I like better than Google, it is probably Pixar. I really enjoy so much of what they do, the hidden humor, the attention to detail, even in the early “films” they […]

Happy Birthday Google

Wednesday, September 8th, 2004

Google is our favorite search engine at htmlfixit.com for many many reasons. First it produces the most relevant search results. Second it has an entire Linux section.

California MCLE, CLE and Continuing Legal Education

Monday, September 6th, 2004

California MCLE, CLE and Continuing Legal Education is a neat site, it has many many sample contracts. For example use the search feature to look for Microsoft and SCO, or find leases for real estate by Amazon.com. Fun to look around.
