Elsewhere Links Are…Elsewhere

Fri, 17 Jul 2009 14:17:06 -0500

Y’all may have noticed that basement.org’s elsewhere links have dried up a bit these days. They actually haven’t. They’re just not happening on this blog. If you’d like to follow the links I’ve been sharing, the easiest way is to just visit (or follow me) on Twitter (@richziade). There’s also an RSS feed fed by that account.

It’s just so much easier to publish quick tidbits this way. I primarily use TBUZZ to share links out. Eventually, I’d like to let that stream show up here on basement.org as elsewhere links. As soon as some time frees up, I’ll make that update.




HTML Prototyping With Polypage

Wed, 29 Apr 2009 14:42:04 -0500

Polypage was designed to ease the process of showing multiple page states in html mock-ups. By adding simply adding class names to a document you can imply state and conditional view logic.” Translation: Niiiice.




Google Gravity

Thu, 02 Apr 2009 10:50:41 -0500

Google Gravity is one of those Google Chrome experiments that shows off the Javascript powerhouse that is Google Chrome. Still, it works in most browsers. Pretty fun…and I love that the links still work. (via Swiss Miss).




Slick Desktop Social Aggregator : Skimmer

Tue, 24 Mar 2009 10:50:00 -0500

With minimalistic flair (is there such a thing?) Skimmer blends together your various social streams (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) into a single, elegant interface. Powered by Adobe Air so both Macs and PC’s can play along.




Jquery Gestures

Thu, 12 Mar 2009 09:57:05 -0500

Very sweet JQuery plugin that supports simple gestures. As the world goes more tablet, this stuff will become more relevant.




NY Times iPhone App Updated, Now 70% More Respectable

Thu, 12 Mar 2009 09:17:58 -0500

The NY Times app for the iPhone has sucked since it came out. It was slow, buggy and crashed a lot. The new version 2.0 is a big improvement. It’s faster and more reliable. It even has some new features. Nice job!




Readability Updated (Now 25% More Obsessive-Compulsive)

Tue, 10 Mar 2009 18:06:42 -0500

The mad scientists at the Arc90 lab have just updated Readability to make it even more diabolically effective. Details on the update are available here. No re-install is required if you’re already using it. It just gets automatically better (like wine).




iPhone Wallpaper Photoshop Template

Tue, 10 Mar 2009 10:34:33 -0500

I was about to sit down and put together a nice Photoshop template for creating iPhone wallpapers. Then I realized that everything has already been done on the Internet. No complaints here. Nice work.




Color Scheme Designer

Tue, 10 Mar 2009 10:21:44 -0500

I’ve pointed to color scheme makers before but this is completely badass (well, as badass as a color scheme tool is going to be). Color Scheme Designer let’s you mess around with color schemes, try them on a mockup Web page and then export the CSS. Many options. Really impressive.




Readability Bookmarklet Now On Google Code

Thu, 05 Mar 2009 10:13:08 -0500

The inherently evil Readability bookmarklet is now on Google Code. Mangle it. Rewrite it. Add to it. Host it yourself. Licensed under Apache License 2.0.




Paint Your Logo Everywhere With Livesurface

Wed, 18 Feb 2009 14:43:52 -0500

Livesurface is an image library that allows you to drop your brand or logo into realistic looking photos. With a little help from Photoshop’s fancy perspective tools, you can do some pretty fancy things.




WhatTheFont Released For The Iphone

Wed, 11 Feb 2009 18:27:22 -0500

“Ever seen a great font in a magazine ad, poster, or on the web and wondered what font it is? Whip out your iPhone and snap a photo, and WhatTheFont for iPhone will identify that font in seconds!” Pretty damn cool!




Circuit City’s Liquidation (Non)-Sale

Wed, 28 Jan 2009 10:14:45 -0500

Dealnews has a nice summary of price comparisons pitting Circuit City against other stores. The results? Just about everything is still more expensive at Circuit City. I wonder if they’ll still liquidate everything anyway. Ah, the uninformed consumer.




Compfight : A Sweet No Nonsense Flickr Search Tool

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:42:12 -0500

I have to say, I’m hating cruft on Web pages these days. Compfight cuts all the nonsense out of a Flickr search and boils it down to what makes Flickr so great: the damn pictures.




A Gallery Of Menus

Tue, 13 Jan 2009 10:24:38 -0500

There are plenty of CSS galleries out there, but how many just focus on menus? That’s right, menus. Well 13 Styles does exactly that. Really nice collection for outright copying or inspiration.
