An Explanation Through Grey’s Law

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

After seeing the application of Grey’s Law on Daring Fireball I felt it perfectly describes the essence of the posts that have been tagged with wtf. The law states:

“Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.”

The latest way to solve PNG transparency in IE 6 and 5.5

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

I was reading Daring Fireball as I do each day and noticed a blurb on Drew McLellan’s post about Transparent PNGs in Internet Explorer 6 on 24 ways.

I’ve been using PNG Fix by Bob Osola, for all of my foreground PNG files, and manually adding the IE image filters through conditionally included CSS for the background images. However SuperSlight does both, obviating this need.

My gratitude to those who keep reinventing wheels and making things better for the rest of us.
