Box Shadows - Cross platform CSS

Been looking at different ways to implement box shadows in pure css, came up with one solution.

Inside your html file
<!--[if lte IE 8]><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/ie.css"><![endif]-->

.boxShadow {
border:1px solid #2A2A2A;
.boxShadow .flash{
position:relative ;
top:5px ; /* pixel here represents pixel of the border */
left:5px; /* pixel here represents pixel of the border */
.boxShadowImg{ /* ie would not follow the width of the parent */
.boxShadow  .img{ /* just pull up the image, -5px works in border (Seems) */

then if your using image you could use this format
<div class="boxShadow boxShadowImg">
<img class="img" src="" />

then if you have a flash (with swfobject)
<div class="boxShadow">
<div class="flash">
<div id="flashContent"></div>

Standard browser, the color would be different from IE, play around with it
-webkit-box-shadow: #111 0px 0px 10px;
-moz-box-shadow: #111 0px 0px 10px;
box-shadow:#111 0px 0px 10px;

Hope this helps

Winamp Spotify Treasure hunting

Back in the days when WinAmp was huge (So was tripod and geocities), WinAmp users like to share their playlist. Most of these playlist are still available online through googling and a lot of them are actually good throwback playlist. With that in mind, I created a javascript script that would change the winamp playlist (pure text) into a spotify search link.

An example of this, say you liked the 90s rock scene. You would google "winamp playlist pearl jam silverchair" and some of the results will return with the title "Winamp Generated PlayList" and these are what we would like to treasure hunt on. Then
Click on of the result.
