A little pre-spring cleaning:
- Technicolor—Yet another color harmonies generator. What makes this one stand out is the sample layout, where you can see how the colors you choose look together. I haven’t decided if I like this one or EasyRGB’s better. (Via Scriptygoddess)
- The trouble with Rover is revealed—A good write-up on how NASA was able to fix Spirit. If you’re a software developer, this is a fascinating case study in troubleshooting.
- One Format—This web site will allow you to generate a user style sheet according to your font size and color preferences. Internet Explorer has long supported the use of user style sheets to control how web pages look. Unfortunately, it’s only really useful to people who know CSS. This tool makes it easy for anyone to benefit from this accessibility option. (Via The Making Connections Unit)
- Develop rock-solid code in PHP: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3—I haven’t read much of this yet, but it looks really good. It’s easy to pick up the basics of PHP, but this tutorial should be good for anyone wanting to do advanced PHP programming.
- Tiger Direct Clip Art & Fonts—A decent collection of royalty-free clip art. It’s not organized well at all, but the nearly 200 fonts make it worth bookmarking.
- Speaking of fonts, dincFONTS is a huge collection of beautiful fonts that are absolutely free.
