Ten Guidelines for Quantitative Measurement of UX | UX Magazine

Most UX designers use qualitative research—typically in the form of usability tests—to guide their decision-making. However, using quantitative data to measure user experience can be a very different proposition. Over the last two years our UX team at Vanguard has developed some tools and techniques to help us use quantitative data effectively. We’ve had some successes, we’ve had some failures, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve developed ten key guidelines that you might find useful.

New CSS Sticky Footer – 2010 – HTML for Bottom of Page Footer

CSS Sticky Footer Layout It Sticks to the Bottom of the Page! See that footer, way down there? It’s stuck to the bottom of the page even when thin on content. Otherwise it would be floating halfway up the page.

Export Artboards from Illustrator « Matthew Ericson – ericson.net

So, I cobbled together a little Javascript script that loops through all the artboards in the document and exports only ones where you’ve changed named the artboard — it’ll skip anything with default names like “Artboard 1″, “Artboard 2″ and so on. And it also will skip any artboards whose names begin with dashes — so once you’ve decided that you don’t like a particular version of design, just put a dash in front of its artboard name and it won’t get exported.

39 Ridiculous Things To Do With CSS3 Box Shadows | Viget Inspire

Box-shadow is a pretty powerful property in modern browsers. With just six little values, you can make some really neat stuff. How much neat stuff, you ask?

Safari and Transparent Borders – Snook.ca

I had noticed this little bug on my own site. In the footer, there’s a 5px border with the colour set using rgba. In Safari, it’s as if the semi-transparent borders overlap each other in the corners and the values are compounded. This creates little squares in the corner of my squares.

The full story of my ExpressionEngine 2 design involvement | Veerle’s blog 3.0

The best part of ExpressionEngine is its great community. Proof of this is the well thought and written article A plea to Ellislab by Kenny Meyers. In this article Kenny voices some of the opinions that were formed during EECI 2010, Leiden, NL. One of the areas he touches on in this post is the UX problems in ExpressionEngine 2. Since I helped Ellislab in designing this I feel that I need to clarify a few things about my involvement.
