As Christmas approaches, heralded by all its little elves of stress, Small Beds is fast becoming a slightly less well-maintained Memepool. But with that in mind, please accept the following link in the spirit of the season.
You can count down the days to Christmas using a normal advent calendar, or (as we’ve done) make your own bizarre, lo-fi collage. Alternatively, if you’re a web-based designer, coder, gibbon or weird viral artificial intelligence disguised as beany_girl0269 on IRC or AIM, you’d do worse than turn each day to 24 ways to impress your friends. Every day a new “hint” (really a short essay) is added, intended to improve your site design in often low-key ways: through quiet, cross-browser Ajax, cultural internationalization or simple CSS tweaks.
