About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Zen Inspiration

I’ve been inspired by Dou­glas Bow­man’s sub­mis­sion to the CSS Zen Gar­denGold­en Mean is an excel­lent exam­ple of what can be done with CSS and some good design skills (not that the oth­er selec­tions are ter­ri­ble, quite the con­trary; how­ev­er, Dou­glas’ entry is absolute­ly stun­ning in my opinion).

I had been hold­ing off putting a design togeth­er for the Gar­den, pri­mar­i­ly because I’m already putting too many hours into non-prof­it projects (hmm, my bank account bal­ance only has 3 dig­its before the .00 — is that bad?), but now I’m deter­mined to put my skills to work — I can’t out­de­sign Mr. Bow­man, but I’ll do my best to con­tribute to the project and its purpose.

I’ll post updates when the design is complete.

    Just to let you know your con­tact form is broken.

    Is there any oth­er way to con­tact you?

    Thanks for point­ing out the error zlog, and for help­ing me track it down and con­firm the fix!

    For every­one else’s ben­e­fit: I’m tired of all the SPAM, so I don’t list my email address on the site. The JavaScript meth­ods seem to cause prob­lems for some peo­ple who read this site, so I chose not to use them on this project (though I have used them in the past, and will use them in the future, and by “them” I of course mean Dan Ben­jam­in’s excel­lent Enkoder).
