Previous week, colleague Willem and I were checking out the mosaic slideshow created by Martin. We were both impressed by his example, but wanted to take it to another level. We discussed on how we could add some features and how it should look like. Willem tranformed this idea to Silverlight and I created an easy to use jQuery plugin that does the same.
This jQuery plugin called jFancyTile is a tile shifting image viewer. It allows you to tranform any list with images to a beautiful tile shifting photo presenter.
Check out the demo to see the plugin live. It's very customizable to fit your own needs. Read the rest of this article to see how this plugin works "under the hood".
Take note this plugin is pretty CPU intense and works best when a low
columnCount is used on relatively small images. Experiment and use with caution. The Silverlight version from Willem doesn't have this problem.

About the author:
The write up has been done by Joanna who works with WebHostingSearch and has been been part of web industry from quite some time now.
An SQL Injection (also known as "Failure to Preserve SQL Query Structure") is one of the most common and most dangerous security issues. SQL injections are dangerous because they are a door wide open to hackers to enter your system through your Web interface and to do whatever they please - i.e. delete tables, modify databases, even get hold of your corporate network. SQL injections are a programming error and they have nothing to do with your web site hosting provider. So, if you have been searching for a secure JSP hosting, PHP hosting or any other type of web hosting packages, you need to know that prevention of an SQL injection is not a responsibility of your web site hosting provider but of your web developers.

A while ago, I reviewed the jQuery 1.3 and PHP book. This book is published by Pack Publishing and they asked me to review another book for them.

I've read the book and wrote a review about it that you can read below. Now, you have a chance to win this 350+ pages thick book and read it yourself!
What you'll learn from this book:
- Introduction to the MVC pattern and how The Zend Framework implements it

Bokeh - In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." (from Wikipedia). I'm pretty sure you've seen this effect before, since there are loads of wallpaper roundups and tutorials using this technique. Currently, one of my favourite wallpapers has to be this bokeh effect from -kol.
Today, I want to add another addition to the bokeh "hype", by creating a pure CSS3 bokeh effect. With some help from jQuery, we can add some randomness in colour, size and position for the effect.
Still don't know what we'll be creating? Make sure to check out the demo and view the source code to learn some more.
Sadly, CSS3 and HTML5 aren't the standards (yet) these days (when will it ever be?). Since this demo is using CSS3, not all modern browsers will be able to show off the full effect. Because of this, it only works on Apples Safari and Google Chrome and the latest version of Firefox. So, for now, this is just for fun - until Microsoft comes with a CSS3 supporting Internet Explorer.
The effect looks pretty neat, doesn't it? Check out this tutorial on how you can create it yourself! For those people who use IE, I've added a little video showing the full effect.
