jQuery (http://www.jquery.com) got their site redesigned a little, and varick from Ngenworks made a pretty cool illustration for the homepage. It was pretty cool this morning because I was listening to Manowar's Battle Hymns when I got to the page :-)

The nice thing about jQuery is that even front end developers with limited JS skills can use it, it also seems that it's the most popular javascript framework. I've used it some for simple stuff, there's plenty of tutorials and examples around as well.

You listen to power metal? You'd get on famously with my brother.

I can accept responsibility for that :-D

I re-purchased WASP, Headless Children the other day (double CD with Inside the Electric Circus). Forgotten how good that was as well. Oh the 80's...

What a great idea. Someone with excellent PHP knowledge should build one of those. :)

Last Tomahawk album a bit wierd. Bought it anyway cos MP can do no wrong in my eyes either. First THWK album well worth checking out, 'God Hates a Coward Sonny' and Mit Gas has Rape This Day on it which is a belter. You ever heard Patton's 'adult themes' Rob? The only record I know that has actually made a girl I know throw up.
