I am a developer who focuses mainly on web technologies.

I also run a handful of websites covering a wide range of topics.

I enjoy nothing more than breaking (then rebuilding) the web.

comment What wireframing tools can produce something that looks like a finished website?
Here is one such example of what I mean by 24 ways - 24ways.org/2009/make-your-mockup-in-markup I am not saying don't wire frame, I am saying do it in the browser.

Pretty much anyone who advocates responsive design - do a quick Google and you will see.

I don't agree with it either, but it seems to be the way of it for phpBB - perhaps a misguided security attempt?

comment phpbb and filesystem storage
The files saved are not valid files, it is almost like they are a hash of information. It may be possible to create the file again just using the stored information on the file system but I doubt it since you would have nothing to go on (if you should try and create a png, or gif, or whatever)

@Dan - I don't follow - what I am saying is removing ad space as part of responsive design.

comment Dropping adverts during responsive design changes
Well lets say I charge someone £100 for advertising on my site, do I need to put on a disclaimer to say you are really only buying adverts on pages that are viewed over a certain size.

comment What kind of markup to use on a website to make data more semantic?
Schema.org seems to be what Google is suggesting nowadays and compliments HTML5 better in my opinion.

What version of Chrome are you using? And what OS is it installed on?
