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).
