Open Source Downloads: the Monster List & - S As demonstrated by the nearly 500 open source downloads on this list, open source software has benefited from an explosion of creativity in the last several years. Indeed, the first decade of the 21st century could be called “the Decade of Open Source.” Since 2006, Datamation has put together at least 15 different lists of open source software, for file sharing, enterprises, small businesses, windows users, netbooks, security professionals, and others. (And check out the hot new open source list from late 2009). software Anamorph Me! (Java version) Anamorph Me! is a free software application to carry out anamorphic transformations on images.

On Web Usability: Mouse Cursors and Actionable Page Elements Whether we realize it or not, the displayed cursor image tells us about the area of the screen below our mouse cursor; it tells us whether or not we need to click, drag, move, resize, or even wait. Now, I know that we all know this, but I believe that sometimes as developers (especially web developers) we forget that not all items in an application have the correct default cursor for the action that is assigned for that item. The Web Standard For years we lived without JavaScript in our browsers; it wasn’t used by developers, or it was turned off or disabled by the user because there were so many security flaws with the JavaScript engine; however, as those security flaws are fixed and JavaScript’s functionality increases, the age of no-script is quickly coming to a close. One of the side-effects from living without JavaScript for so long is that users are now used to relying on the mouse pointer to signal whether or not something on the page is clickable or actionable.

Valknut: Odin's Symbol of Norse Viking Warriors The word valknut is a neologism: it is formed in modern times through combination of ON valr, ‘the dead’ or ‘the slain’ and knut, ‘knot’. Valknut is a Viking symbol of three interconnected triangles. The triangles may be joined in two ways: either as Borromean: or unicursal:

List of colors The following is a list of colors. A number of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific naming schemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standards are defined in terms of the sRGB color space. It is not possible to accurately convert many of these swatches to CMYK values because of the differing gamuts of the two spaces, but the color management systems built into operating systems and image editing software attempt such conversions as accurately as possible. The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation, brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table. Colors that appear on the web-safe color palette—which includes the sixteen named colors—are noted.[1] (Those four named colors corresponding to the neutral grays have no hue value, which is effectively ignored—i.e., left blank.)

Information Architects – The 100% Easy-2-Read Standard by Oliver Reichenstein Most websites are crammed with small text that’s a pain to read. Why? There is no reason for squeezing so much information onto the screen. It’s just a stupid collective mistake that dates back to a time when screens were really, really small.

Detect and Set the iPhone & iPad's Viewport Orientation Using JavaScript, CSS and Meta Tags Last week we showed you how to use Safari for iPhone and iPad website testing.

Consider all the beeps and bops from your smartphone that alert you that something is happening, and all the feedback from your appliances when your toast is ready or your oven is heated, and when Siri responds to a question you’ve posed. Today our technology is expressing itself with sound, and, as interaction designers, we need to consider how to deliberately design with audio to create harmony rather than cacophony. The cacophony is beautifully captured in Chris Crutchfield’s video, in which he interprets the experience of receiving email, SMS texts, phone calls, Facebook messages and tweets all at the same time: In this article, we’ll explore some of the uses of audio, where we might find it and when it is useful.
