or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the New Web Bubble.

456 Berea st’s Automatic Pullquotes with Javascript and CSS has got me foaming at the mouth. The movement of blogs toward a magazine/newspaper style format is an interesting one, and this helps the cause.

Misprinted Type presents a bunch of nice freeware grunge-esque fonts.

Squidfingers Patterns. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have plans to use a few dozen of these in the next couple weeks.

Dynamic Drive’s Stylesheet Switcher 1.1. The built-in random alone would’ve sold me on it, but - my god, is it clean.

How to Create Professional HDR Images. The best tutorial on the subject I’ve come across to this point.

CSS Rounded Corners Roundup. I could link to this by virtue of pun alone, but it’s actually very useful; I could think of about a dozen other nu-school techniques that could use a roundup of this sort.

Link Thumbnail: Oooooh. Could get old quickly, but hopefully the customizers out there will make sure that doesn’t happen. Very interesting in terms of brand and identity exposure, should you get the links.

Big ol’ list of Free Photoshop compatible plugins. You know what I like the best? when the title does the description work for me. I’m a fan.

Turning your photos into pop art. My cartoon beard has no rivals. I swears it.

Ten things you probably didn’t know about PHP. If you’re a designer and you think that development doesn’t affect you, think again.

Happy hallowe’en, ladies and gentlemen. Hope you enjoy the resources!

A very useful list. I am using a hacked script equivalent to the Link Thumbnail script on my blog. Automatic pullquotes are effective, I have been meaning to but haven’t actually got to using the Wordpress plugins.

Regarding the style-switcher, I like Roger Johansson’s PHP style switcher ( more as it does not require JavaScript.
