Posting has been light, so to hold you over until a longer, more detailed post appears, here’s a list of what I’ve been up to, and some things still on the drawing board:
- Submitted chapter for CSS: Separating Content from Presentation.
- One contest doing well (The Old Technology Giveaway), the other (Sidebar Redesign), not so well.
- Meetings and phone calls with clients and prospects, some want work for no money, others want to pay, just not enough. One client is stalling the project intentionally, due to internal power struggles; we may lose a lot of money because of their problems, which are unrelated to our project.
- New sections are being developed for SuperfluousBanter: SuperfluousPhotos and SuperfluousCode (a photo gallery and code repository, respectively).
- Design for the new sections has inspired exploration of an entire redesign for the site.
- SoBig is filling my mailbox with SPAM and bounces from people who think I spammed them (note: It wasn’t me. First, I’m on a Mac, which are impervious to most of these Microsoft-related viruses, and second, the emails you think came from me were actually sent by the virus, which can spoof the “From” header in an email).
- Blaster is not causing me (or my office) any problems whatsoever.
- Today will involve many phone calls, none of which will be profitable, but all of which must be taken care of.
- I go to the dentist tomorrow for a cleaning–they won’t be happy with me.
- I tweaked some code on web-graphics.com: Posts now display the MovableType AuthorNickname field if it has been filled out by an author, otherwise the AuthorName will be shown. I did this so my posts would show up as something other than DanRubin (Dan R. is my current choice). It also allows more flexibility for the other authors, since they are no longer relegated to posting under their login name.
- I’m playing around with my own take on CSS tabs–two of them, actually. One is used in my chapter for CSS: Separating Content from Presentation, the other is a variation on Dan Cederholm’s Mini-Tab Shapes, putting the images above the text, so they are not hidden by the mouse pointer (this issue has irked me about this sort of link highlighting for quite a while).
- This is a short work week, as I am heading up the state for a relaxing Labor Day weekend with a few hundred other Barbershop and a cappella music enthusiasts. By the pool, on the golf course, or in the penthouse suite, I expect to be singing the entire weekend, and will spend quality time with friends I only get to see in person two or three times a year.
- Speaking of Barbershop, I’m almost finished redesigning my quartet’s web site. No link yet, I’ll post when it’s finished.
