Notices for 16th January 2007 to 9th January 2007

Tuesday, 16th January 2007

For beta 341 of the iCab Web browser for Macintosh, I produced a set of file icons for the Mac OS X build series. Until that point, under OS X it had been using the Mac OS 9 file icons, which were very much unsuitable.

I have now posted the icon design project under Artwork so that people can have a peek at the icons and the process behind them.

There is also a new bug of the moment up. I am curious about this one: can anyone reproduce this problem, particularly in Windows XP? Or did this bug breed on my computer? Tomorrow, however, I have a really cute one to post.

Update: betbest1 confirms the above Character Map bug in XP, and the new bug of the moment is up as promised.

Finally, one more challenge. Take a look at the following set of colour bars:

I would like everyone please to tell me whether they perceive the bars in the middle to be darker than those at the top and bottom? Particularly, is the second bar down darker than the top bar? I am quite curious about this because Jenni and I perceive this image quite differently and I would like to get a handle on what the majority of people see.

Another bug of the moment entry. This cannot be the first time that I’ve remarked that it seems to be all I update these days… And only because I can, I suppose.

New bug of the moment as promised.
