A note from the author is using a fluid layout based upon work by Dave Reeder. I'm trying to take CSS a little more seriously; but I'm having a hard time because of all of the bad syntax, browser compatibility hacks, and non-fluid layouts. If any of the other technology I used were like CSS, I'd have to set myself on fire and jump off of a cliff.

So this is the third night this week I can't get to bed before 4 AM. Out of bordeom I started googling classmates from elementary school and high school. Interesting fact of the night -- I went to high school with Yahoo's programming lead for search marketing. Small world.

The Rise before the Fall

posted: 2007-11-29 00:37:07

Death of the AP

posted: 2007-08-31 15:18:22
