Not being the first to get into this argument, I’ve picked a less offensive title than one that might otherwise get a lot of attention: Why CSS should not be used for layout “I would rather spend my allotted time skiing or making love to my wife than worrying about whether or not I need… Continue reading CSS and XHTML: Cyber Arts and Crafts
57% Chance of Surviving a Zombie Attack
57% It’s not particularly good, though not all together bad either. I think the quiz is rigged. It never asked me how good I was with knives. Thanks for the meme, Spazz.
How I Work
The longest amount of time spent, and time I am unable to account for, is research. Depending on the topic, I may spend a week pouring through as many references I can find on a particular subject to get a real good feel for the information. If I don’t require reference material as I write, it goes much quicker.
Web Sites for Artists at the Quinlan
I’m putting together a class for the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville towards the end of this month. I’ll be focusing on web site development by more traditional means. I think a critical step often forgotten by developers is wire framing and white boarding.

My friend, Jason D., sent me a chain-letter to fill out and send to a million people for good luck or something. I am against such things, but I like Jason and wish to at least better his luck. Instead of emailing everyone with my MadLib biography, I chose to post it here on my… Continue reading MadLib Biographies
Though I didn’t intend it, I’ve had a blogger’s block lately. I can’t find anything in my world in the last couple of days worth writing about. I can say I’m a bit under the weather, so maybe that gives me a sense of optical rectumitis on everything else. I’m also beginning to think seriously… Continue reading Timeout
Winter is Here!
Not that it had gone unnoticed by anyone, but today is officially Winter. It has been very cold for the last week or so. Yesterday the weather decided to ring Fall and ask for cover while it went for a smoke break. This week, looks like Fall will be standing in for Winter during the… Continue reading Winter is Here!
Word of the Day
I came across this word at (oddly enough) a site on CSS and web design. I think I shall begin to use this word with some frequency! Thanks, Sweden, for your herring and Euro-slang.
