I hate pop ups, so as surely many of you now, I installed the Google bar with the popup blocker.
But one issue is coming now. I have some web projects where after a login page, I need to open the main window full screen without the menu bar or any decorations.
So what I am supposed to do now ? Very annoying, because of course I can click on Ctrl to open my new window, but what's about the users ? It make things complicated.
Including the fact that this feature will be part of the next IE, and i believe activate by default. I would like to see a little bit of intelligence in the behavior of these pop up blockers. Like for example that if a window.open is called from the same site, it consider this as perfectly valid.
I know a lot of webtools working with full opened windows, I wonder how they will fix this.
Any ideas ?
Well it's not really Picasso, but it is the proof you can make something with SVG other than pie-charts !
The next version of dScribe will be release in few hours.
This version will be the first Beta (following the three alpha versions already released).
A lot of things has been done recently, so I would like just to mention this:
- dScribe will now be multi projects. Yes you can handle with this tool multiple websites from one place.
- I implemented a Setup page to configure the basic settings dScribe need (admin name, passwords, servers, etc...)
- Deployment function will be now operational. So you would be able to define 3 types of servers, Development, Test, and Production.
- Some nice features for an Admin role, like the way to Start/Stop a site, managing an error page, etc..
And of course the usual bugs fixed ;-)
I will also publish another article (the eight now if I'm right) where I will talk about editing and approval process.
Finally if you have some comments and want to implement something I forgot, let me know !
UPDATE: now that Tomas has released a new version I suggest that you use his control Read more here ;-)
I really like the Popup control Tomáš Petrícek created and published on codeProject.
I love the idea to have my little popup window coming and disappearing automatically, and also the gradient idea.
But for a small project, I need a drag&drop feature. So I know Tomas is busy on the next version, but I couldn't wait further more. I needed to implement the idea for a glossary window, you know you click on some word, and automatically a popup coming with some dictionary explanations.
So I included in his control this feature, so now the popup can move along the window.
This is actually a first version, fully functional, but I expect of course some improvements, or maybe the one Tomas should release.
I expect to implement a trigger in the user control to enable or disable the draganddrop feature.
By the way this is working as DHTML so google popup blocker will never catch up this 'fake' window ;-)

This time it's not Google blogging but their creators Larry Page and Sergey Brin *.
I like their introduction ;-)
Together we have a web site called "Google". It reunites visitors with "that page they saw yesterday but can't remember the address of".
And now we have a web log.
I laughed at this post:

No I don't talk about dinosaurs but Dino Esposito. He's blogging now in this weblog space.
Wow! I can tell I am a real serious Dino's fan.
Welcome Dino and please post long and interesting bogs( 'a la' Chris Brumme for example).n
When I am going to tell to my mother that I share a virtual space with you she won't believe me ;-))
I am getting lost with the versions, but I think this one is new for me (Version 220.127.116.11)
Lutz Roeder, the excellent writer of Reflector, had written a game for smartphone, Digger:
Digger is a game for Smartphone 2003. The goal is to collect a given number diamonds and exit the level without getting hit by stones or ghosts. The status line tells you the level, number of lives, diamonds you collected and how many you need to collect. Press "*" to continue after you died. "#" will exit the program.
