So I had a company meeting today. It doesn't happen too often (once a week perhaps) so we always get a sandwich or two in town afterwards. We were talking earlier about general mac maintenance. I wanted to keep my powerbook nice and clean and I wanted something portable:
Perfect solution for portable powerbook maintenance and only £0.50p from the local highstreet store. They also double up as face and hand wipes for when you have a greasy dinner and want to keep extra clean and hygienic before you put your mucky fingers back onto that aluminium keyboard.
I recommend having a duster or a dry, lint-free cloth to dry the screen after you've wiped it.
Left-hand navigation: Too many links

Quote from Chapter 8 of Building Accessible Websites.
Are you insane? I mean, why on earth would you believe that using a table is perfectly ok for formatting data? Would you type your school report in a spreadsheet program? No? That's because it's a bloody spreadsheet program for formatting tabular data. Do you want to hear something interesting? The
table element is for formatting tabular data. If you are incapable of designing a website according to established, accessible, simple standards then get another job and stop ruining it for those of us who work hard for a living.
Update: Just wanted to make a note to my future future self about the past self that this was back when I was stupid. I think the me of late 2005 already had regretted the me of 2004 posting this. In the original iteration of this blog Joe Clark actually posted a comment. All of that is lost now as I’ve switched a million blog systems in the meantime. Keeping this post as a reminder
