Peter Gabriel Sings Like a Muppet

| Comments

If you don't believe me, listen to this. (Record Robot requests that you please right click this and download it rather than stream it.)

This begs the questions:

  • did he mean to sing like that?
  • did he know he was sounding like a muppet?
  • what did he mean to sound like?

Taken from Record Robot which is a cool site. I must get round to listening to more of the mp3s on there.

IE 'Peekaboo' CSS Bug - Fixed

| Comments

This has been bothering me for a couple of days, but finally found the solution today. If you are experiencing the IE Peekabo bug and none of the other solutions suit your site’s CSS setup, then why not try this? Set a line-height on the offending div tag, like this:

div#yourdiv { line-height: 1.2; }

(1.2 ish being the default line height in most browsers)

This fix found on Matthew Somerville’s site. Thanks Matthew!
