Horulanka, a group of young guys doing some music experiments on their spare time while doing higher studies. At the moment they are located in Melbourne, Australia.
Check out these awesome covers they have done. They don’t like to reveal them self but they are very talented, and couple of them are from very famous music families (don’t ask me who are they :p). And all of these are home made productions.
Just check following songs or go to their YouTube channel for full list of songs & new releases.

Validation is also an important part of web development. Many errors that are hard to find can discover during validation. This is like spell checking and proofreading for grammar and syntax in a document. but is much more precise and reliable than any of those processes because it is dealing with precisely-specified machine languages, not with nebulously-defined human natural language. You can validate your (X)HTML page as well as your CSS.
Here I’m not going brief you about Web Standards, but I’m going to tell how we can use those best practices in Web standards to produce a valid (X)HTML page.
Benefits of having a valid code
Future compatibility: Your website will compatible with future web browsers.
Simpler development and maintenance: Creating Valid (X)HTML Documents Means Cleaner Code and Easier Maintenance.
Faster download and rendering of web pages: Less (X)HTML results in smaller file sizes and quicker downloads. Modern web browsers render pages faster when they are in their standards mode than when they are in their backwards compatible mode.
Better accessibility: Semantic (X)HTML, where structure is separated from presentation, makes it easier for screen readers and alternative browsing devices to interpret the content.
Better search engine rankings: The separation of content and presentation makes the content represent a larger part of the total file size. Combined with semantic markup this will improve search engine rankings.
Simpler adaptation to any media or screen devices: A semantically marked up document can be easily adapted to print and alternative browsing devices, like handheld computers and cellular phones, just by linking to a different CSS file. You can also make site-wide changes to presentation by editing a single file.
Include the correct DOCTYPE declaration at the beginning of the file. A DOCTYPE (short for “document type declaration”) informs the validator which version of (X)HTML you’re using, and must appear at the very top of every web page. DOCTYPEs are a key component of compliant web pages: your markup and CSS won’t validate without them.
The DOCTYPE is case-sensitive so use the correct case: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "- //W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd" />
Add the attribute xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" to the <html> element.
Close all elements: Omitting </p> is not valid anymore.
Change all elements to lowercase: <P> becomes <p>.
Here anotherlistfromme this time it’s all about feeds which I have added to my Google Reader to read whenever I am free. Actually now I am addicted to Google Reader and these feeds. This list is bit long and it’s containing around 78 valid feeds.
Here I have sorted out the list in alphabetical order. This will contain feeds about Web Standards, Accessibility, Usability, User Experience, Web 2.0, Personal Blogs, Technical and Technology, Design Resources and some great online journals regarding web and it’s new trends. This is very helpful for me to keep my self updated on time.
If anyone know any good feed that I have missed here, feel free to add it via a comment.
[UPDATE - Tuesday, March 31, 2009]NethFM online stream replaced with their new stream link.
[UPDATE - Wednesday, March 18, 2009] New Sri Lankan Online Community Radio, Sinha FM has been added. It’s on air from Doha, Qatar. Sinha FM is a none profitable on line radio for all our expats working in out side of our mother land..
[UPDATE] I have re-ordered and index the list by alphabetical order. Hope this will be much more readable than before.
Here I am listing some good Sri Lankan Radio Stations and Music Portals with their online streaming feed. Remember some radio streaming feeds they providing are not valid, so in here I have tried my best to avoid those invalid feeds.
