Find Basic Errors In Your CSS Code With CSS Lint

Ever spend days writing the best CSS code in the world only to discover that something isn’t rendering quite right? What’s worse is that after spending a tedious and somewhat frustrating time trying to find out what’s wrong, you discover it was just a basic syntax error and that’s when you might want to kick yourself. CSS Lint is a web app that performs a basic check on your CSS code. It highlights errors and warns you if there is anything in the code that might not render properly. It lists errors, line number of each error, a brief description of the error and how to fix it. The app also tells you if the error will reflect across all browsers or just one particular browser. The app checks the code based on 19 different rules, you can choose to have the app ignore any one of them by unchecking the respective box on the home page. To process code, simply copy and past it in to the area provided and hit Lint. Errors are identified with a red warning sign while warnings are identified w…

Iwata taking 50% pay cut over 3DS performance

Nintendo is dropping the price of the 3DS next month. In addition, the company has announced plans to institute a price cut on president Satoru Iwata. At a conference in Tokyo, Iwata told investors that he was taking responsibility for the 3DS's slow sales, along with a 50 percent reduction in pay as a result.
Iwata's last annual compensation was ¥137 million, or $1.8 million (including salary and performance-based "variable compensation"). He didn't announce specifics of the cut, but we can expect both the base salary and the bonus to be lower, since lower performance is the whole reason for this exercise. Other "representative directors," including Senior Managing Directors Shigeru Miyamoto and Shinji Hatano, will take 30 percent pay cuts, and other execs will lose 20 percent off their salaries.
Analyst David Gibson tweeted from the conference that Nintendo cited a missed opportunity to cut the GameCube's price as motivation to jump on the 3DS price…

50+ PSD UI Web design elements

I’m a big believer in not reinventing the wheel when it comes to web design. If someone has already created something that fits what you need and/or want, and especially if that element is available for free, then why waste your time designing something that turns out virtually identical? Your time and effort is better spent on creating new and unique parts of your design, while using what’s already available for other parts. Below are more than 50 free UI element packs from a variety of designers. Buttons, form elements, media players, and similar stock elements are the most popular, though there are other elements included also. And as a bonus, there are over half a dozen premium element packs at the end. Enjoy!
