Re: Open link in new tab

It's the same system used in nearly every other forum. You guys don't leave Core77 much eh :roll:

Any link that goes to an external site, opens up in a different window/tab, to prevent leaving here. I'm not talking about internal links.

Re: Superbrands 2012

I didn't catch the bit that said "voted for in a national survey of 2,000 adults". Yep, hands up, not the best of information. It would have been better to take the values off of the stock market.

I just found the site it came from if anyone's interested: http://www.superbrands.uk.com/

Re: Open link in new tab

I'm sure you know that it's not normal practice, for the reasons mentioned. It's a minor issue for me as it's already memorised for this site, but I just find it strange to have it set up like this. There aren't any benefits. Cheers Hoodzy. I've been pressing the middle button all morning now ..it's...

Open link in new tab

Clicking on a link, opens it on the same page rather than in a new tab. Core77 is the only site I use that does this, and whilst I now open links here by 'right clicking - open in new tab', it would be nice just to be able to click on the link. Can it be changed? It's been bugging me for a while, so...

Re: New Windows 8 logo - beautiful-ish

I think it's a hell of an improvement over the previous logos. I'd like to see it refined further and to be a standalone logo. The text overpowers it and, as mentioned, it restricts minimalism. It is nice to see Windows dress up and become fashionable. I think it looks like the flag for Greece. But ...

Re: VPs of 2 cubes at different angles?

Thanks for that Dino. I hadn't come across it before.

Also, if anyone knows of a quicker method that doesn't require drawing a 'base reference' cube first, I'd love to hear.

Re: Is photography design?

In many ways a photographer is a designer; a designer of photographs. From composing the subjects in their desired location, creating the type of light that they're looking for, to choosing the DOF and adding processing techniques. All of this is the design of the image. Would I call a photographer ...
