Melt Your Cap
As winter approaches and the temperature in this hellish divot known as Porn Valley sinks to a frigid 67 degrees, companies are rolling out their seasonal fare, such as Eon McKai's All Hallows Steve and my own Squanto and the Cum Dumpster.

Cross Platform Design
It's a sad day in every web designer's life when you first see the web page you so carefully crafted to perfection displayed on a different computer using a different operating system, web browser, screen resolution and color depth.
