12 Lessons for Those Afraid of CSS and Standards “It took me two years to break out of the comfortable prison of layout tables, and another two years before I could use CSS to produce layouts that were originally intended for tables.” “The buzz about Web 2.0, CSS, and myriad other subjects of the bleeding…

R.I.P. Mo Mowlam. Sad news indeed, one of the “good” politicians. I won’t say anything about who should be attending her funeral, but he had better! ~ Thanks to all who commented on yesterdays Top 100 post. Despite it being a subject many don’t see any value in it has still managed to stir up…

Hanni linked to a post which discusses whether weblogs and standards are ruining the internet, with the entire thing prompted by Heather Champ, the woman’s influence is considerable. I’ve commented about this on the former linked sites but thought I’d expand (clarify) my position here. If you are so inclined I suggest you go and…

“Get me one of those variegated cakes…” My Mum is old and her ‘senior moments’ are becoming more frequent. Time to start logging a few for prosperity I think (although she will never beat another senior we know – she was confused a few years back about those ‘pubic cubes’ everyone was raving about… LOL)

Started writing again. Been several months since I opened my head and let a little spill out. Might not be pretty, but again, I don’t do this site for you dear reader, I do it for me. True I could write it all down, and keep it to myself, but having been through what I’ve…

OK, own up, someone somewhere must’ve linked to my site on Tuesday last week – 70 visits in one day – I think that is a record for this humble little place. Whoever it was, thanks! Drop me a line so I know who you are… of course if it wasn’t a link/mention somewhere then…

Was planning on getting to bed early. Forgot to wash my footie stuff from last night…dammit, dammit, dammit. I’m in an unusually crap, narky mood this evening. Not sure why, although I could pitch a few hundred reasons, I think I’m just in a crap mood because I want to be in one. Sounds odd,…

CSS Madness spreading the word as requested. Although I’m guessing that most folks that visit here will also visit there. Oh and thanks for the email six, one thing I hate more than a designer that is better than me, is a modest designer who is better than me…LOL

Bulger email details posted. Feel free to send me your comments. Have started to recode the site – shouldn’t be any obvious changes as I’m trying to make sure it is as cross-browser as possible (toying with getting rid of the frames, but that’s too big a job for the moment…). Also added new permalinks…

Happy Birthday Gran! Yikes it’s December on Friday, and as I live with a Crimbo Nutter that means our tree will be going up (Yes I know the whole 2 weeks before thing…). Still it does mean that a holiday is in sight, but as I’ve just pulled together a list of documents I need…

So I hear that someone finally won £1million on the damn show – I wonder how long it took to get Chris Tarrant to actually confirm her final answer was correct (if you are guessing that this particular programme annoys me you’d be understating). But was it a fix? Not only was the woman Camilla…

Happy Birthday to the Big Chuffer! I hope the coming year is as good as the last one. Stirling was OK. Hungover. Still. Bummer. Mind you at least I didn’t run ‘over’ a car… tut tut tut… LOL. Holiday in a week’s time. A week of no work. In fact probably a week of not…

Foot in mouth disease is a terrible thing. Thankfully this time it wasn’t me, but it’s always worrying when someone says SomeTHiNG without (obviously) thinking about it. Result – one upset person, one conversation and more than likely no improvement. We’ll see if any effect is filtered down to me, but it has been a…
