The good folks over at Craftymind have created a cool example of some of the capabilities of the HTML5 canvas tag. They’ve created an explosive effect in an HTML5 video using the Canvas.drawImage() call. Have a look here: http://www.craftymind.com/2010/04/20/blowing-up-html5-video-and-mapping-it-into-3d-space/

Roy Tanck has developed a plugin for showing WordPress tag clouds called WP-Cumulus. It’s a great plugin that’s also usable in contexts outside WordPress, and Roy Tanck has generously provided his source code as open source for the world to enjoy – respect.
However, you may experience a problem with the links in the tag cloud not being clickable. They are shown alright, but when you hover the cursor above the links, no boxes are shown and no links are clickable.
Now, this is because the hrefs of the links are defined as relative paths such as <a href=”/hello/world”>My tag cloud link</a>. If you change your paths to be absolute, say, <a href=”http://www.meeho.net/hello/world”>My tag cloud link</a>, then the links in the tag cloud will be clickable again – problem solved!

Yesterday, Troels told me about the good people over at ie6update.com, Nick Pettit and Jim Hoskins. Apparently, they have created a tiny script that imitates the classic Windows pop-under bar used in the Internet Explorer series to trick the users of Internet Explorer 6 to update to a newer version. As speculative as this might sound, the idea is really great and we encourage you to go take a look at their site. Great work, guys!
