    Today’s read: 16 Pixels For Body Copy. Anything Less Is A Costly Mistake. 

    Smashin Magazine

    16 Pixels For Body Copy. Anything Less Is A Costly Mistake

    A very good article on why we should keep bigger (and better) font sizes. I totally agree with the author. I hate the small font size Facebook uses. That gives me a bad head ache and I always use the browser zoom for better readability.

    I know what you’re thinking. “Did he just say 16 pixels? For body copy? Obnoxiously big! 12 pixels is ideal for most websites.”

    I’d like to persuade you otherwise.

    Have a nice read.

    Today’s read: What to do when your website goes down? 

    Smashin Magazine

    What to do when your website goes down? is an awesome post, trust me. Perhaps one of the most useful one, that can help anyone.

    Have you ever heard a colleague answer the phone like this: “Good afterno… Yes… What? Completely?… When did it go down?… Really, that long?… We’ll look into it right away… Yes, I understand… Of course… Okay, speak to you soon… Bye.” The call may have been followed by some cheesy ’80s rock ballad coming from the speaker phone, interrupted by “Thank you for holding. You are now caller number 126 in the queue.” That’s your boss calling the hosting company’s 24 hour “technical support” line.

    An important website has gone down, and sooner or later, heads will turn to the Web development corner of the office, where you are sitting quietly, minding your own business, regretting that you ever mentioned “Linux” on your CV. You need to take action. Your company needs you. Your client needs you. Here’s what to do.

    Today’s read – How To Build A Mobile Website 

    This one is really helpful. How To Build A Mobile Website. This article talks about the stylesheets, mobile stylesheets, customizing them, how to reduce the bandwidth usage and handling iPad/iPhone.

    Over the past few years, mobile web usage has considerably increased to the point that web developers and designers can no longer afford to ignore it. In wealthy countries, the shift is being fueled by faster mobile broadband connections and cheaper data service.  However, a large increase has also been seen in developing nations where people have skipped over buying PCs and gone straight to mobile.

    Unfortunately, the mobile arena introduces a layer of complexity that can be difficult for developers to accommodate.  Mobile development is more than cross-browser, it should be cross-platform.  The vast number of mobile devices makes thorough testing a practical impossibility, leaving developers nostalgic for the days when they only had to support legacy browsers.

    Today’s read: How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites 

    How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites via Smashing Magazine.

    I had to struggle a lot to get rid of my orkut account! It was not very easy. When I was doing that I really wished to have some FAQs and guidelines which I read and understand. But tough luck, I didn’t find anything then. But I found this article in Smashing Magazine today, and I think this is really useful.

    We all have an increasing number of sites and online services we’re members of, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming. At times, we just need to delete our memberships to some sites, either in an effort to simplify our lives or just because we’ve grown tired of a particular site or service.

    What we often don’t realize when signing up for all these accounts, though, is how difficult it can be to permanently delete our accounts when we’ve had enough. Some require complicated, multi-step processes that can stretch over the course of days (or weeks). Others take less time, but still require multiple steps by the user.
