'We're Huge in Finland!' Firefox Hits New High as... →
Mozilla Firefox continued its slow but steady march against the worldwide dominance of Microsoft Internet Explorer in 2007. Though the open-source web browser continues to sit firmly in second place behind IE, where it’s been for years, usage of Firefox is still on the rise.

Cull of the parakeets| News | This is London →
Parakeets in the top 20 of the most-spotted birds in the UK?! One roost of 3,000 at a rugby ground?! Maaaad.

Small Caps | i love typography, the typography... →
Small caps are uppercase glyphs drawn at a lowercase scale. A common misconception—unfortunately reinforced by most word processing programs as well as by CSS on the web—is that a small cap is just a regular capital letter scaled uniformly down to a smaller size.

Every child is to be issued with a ‘unique learner number’ which will allow educational establishments, local authorities and prospective employers to access individuals’ records online. Sensitive and potentially damaging information such as exclusions and expulsions will be stored on the database. Scary stuff.
