Something’s Coming…

Separating Content From Presentation [book cover]Something is indeed coming, and coming soon; unfortunately, good news often comes at a price, and the price in my case has been limited time to do anything other than work, eat and sleep (and little of the last two), which includes managing SuperfluousBanter.

Posting has been rather infrequent of late (as noted by readers like Adam Polselli), and it’s due to a few projects which have been taking up quite a bit of my time over the last few weeks (most of them warrant the time spent…).

I will be writing more in the week(s) to come (expect limited posting until some of these projects have been completed) but here’s a quick run-down of what to expect:

Everything is quite exciting at the moment, which is a nice change of pace. I’m also working on ideas for a few articles that I will attempt to have published (ALA, Digital Web, etc.) — I’ll publish them here if I have to (ahh, the joys of independent publishing).

Changes continue to be made to SuperfluousBanter, some noticeable, others hidden behind the scenes — I’ll write up a list of changes and any interesting tidbits once some of these other projects are underway. One you will see soon is a transition from JavaScript to CSS for the style switcher rollovers in the sidebar, as well as further use of the FIR technique (or its recently discovered alternatives throughout the site (for more on FIR, read Dave Shea’s new article for Digital Web Magazine, In Defense of Fahrner Image Replacement).

Finally, in addition to The Old Technology Giveaway, I’ll be posting another little contest early next week (possibly over the weekend) with some more useful prizes, and a little less-esoteric theme.

    Daniel, we’d be happy to review any article you submit for consideration to Digital Web Magazine. Just drop me an email when you have an idea of what you’d like to write about. Keep up the great work on your blog.

    Nick: Thanks for saying so! I suppose it never hurts to encourage potential authors, does it :-)

    Sunny: Me neither — expect to see lots of news next week!

    Glad to here you are finally getting the business you deserve. And man this text is tiny when typing in the comment box :) What is 8px? Anyways, keep up the mad good work. It is your duty as a crazy talented individual to give back to the less talented folks like myself. ;)
