Icon fonts, unicode ranges, and IE8’s compatibility mode

6th November 2013

While doing some browser testing this week, [Mark](http://clearleft.com/is/mark-perkins) come across a particularly wicked front-end problem. Something was triggering compatibility mode in Internet Explorer 8 and he couldn’t figure out what it was.

We moved into our new offices at [68 Middle Street](http://68middle.st/) almost 6 weeks ago now. I’ve been reflecting on the scheme, both from a design point of view and project management.

Listen to dConstruct 2013

14th October 2013

If you didn’t make it to [this year’s dConstruct](http://2013.dconstruct.org/), at least your ears can catch up. If you *did* make it to this year’s dConstruct, your ears can experience the fun all over again. [The audio is available](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013), is what I’m saying here. 1. Amber Case: [Ambient Location and the Future of the Interface](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/ambientlocation) 2. Luke Wroblewski: [Infinite Inputs](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/infiniteinputs) 3. Nicole Sullivan: [Don’t Feed the Trolls](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/dontfeedthetrolls) 4. Simone Rebaudengo: [Great; things are connected, but what will they actually talk about?](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/thingsconnected) 5. Sarah Angliss: [Tech and the Uncanny](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/uncannytech) 6. Keren Elazari: [The Heroes and Anti-heroes of the Information Age](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/heroesantiheroes) 7. Maciej Cegłowski: [Fan is a Tool-Using Animal](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/fananimal) 8.

Adam Buxton: [Is My Laptop Ruining My Life?](http://archive.dconstruct.org/2013/laptoplife) The audio is [on Huffduffer](http://huffduffer.com/dconstruct/tags/dconstruct2013) for your listening pleasure. If you’d like to take it with you on the go, [here’s the RSS feed](http://huffduffer.com/dConstruct/tags/dconstruct2013/rss) — just pop that into your podcasting/catching software of choice. While you’re at it, this might be a nice opportunity to go back and explore [the dConstruct archive](http://archive.dconstruct.org/) where you can find every talk from every dConstruct from 2005 to 2013. That’s 70 talks, or about 46 hours of listening pleasure. Share and enjoy!

Busy would be an understatement for the past week or so and I think we’re all quite happy to get a rest being back at work.

Our first event in Middle Street
