This week’s link collection started from a new round of updates on my software, blogs and websites. The first one is DinPattern, a site hosting some interesting background patterns from flowers to twirls to lines. Another patterns website is, this time only with lines, diagonal, horizontal and vertical.

Smashing Magazine released a new theme, Ornate (view a demo here), which seems pretty interesting. I would personally lose the hover-above-background effect, and try a mild yellowish colour. But it’s just me. offers high quality premium WordPress themes. And the price is pretty good (low).

Hammerhead is a new add-on tool for Firebug extension for Firefox. I already have the Yahoo optimizer add-on installed.

Image optimization is an art that not many people master. There are many good image editing tools that allow us to get the best visual result for a certain file size but “under the hood” a lot more optimization can be done. For non techies go for smush it!

  1. Hey Ornate looks pretty nice — classy and elegant.
    And what’s the point of hammerhead? Doesn’t firebug already have its own tool to track page load times?

  2. Hey, I want to contribute with a link here, it’s tiled background patterns again,

  3. Posts like this inspires me the more, Last week I came across a great blog with step by steb guide for patterning ,see

  4. Yes, I knew that, pretty interesting, could also be used for game textures as the tiling technique is very easy. It doesn’t matter what’s on the inside, as long as the margins match each other.

  5. Thanks for providing me with information about Hammerhead, etc.
