IE 5.5 / New Portfolio

Posted: 06/09/2006 01:54 PM | permaLink

I've noticed a lot of IE 5.5 visitors in my logs lately. So, I'm really curious as to how my site actually looks with IE 5.5 (I didn't test the site with that version). I also haven't seen how it looks in Safari or Opera...

So if you're using IE 5.5 (or Safari or Opera), drop me a comment, and let me know how things look... PLEASE!!

What else is new? My new Flash Portfolio is almost done.... I'll put the finishing touches on it this weekend (either that, or I'll trash it completely and do something entirely different... one never knows).

Reboot: 1 May 2006

Whew! It's going to be a busy month. I'll be going live with a new web design on May 1st. The new design is quite a bit different from my existing design - centered layout, black background with a green Scotch Whiskey theme. (The availability of Scotch is an integral factor in my continued happiness.)

I agreed to help a buddy out with a house-sit in Galisteo this week, starting tomorrow and ending on Easter Sunday. Not so bad, except I found out that I was signed up for a Crystal Reports class in Albuquerque this coming week as well... the class starts at 8:00 AM - which basically means that I will be getting up at the butt-crack of dawn every day, hauling ass to ABQ, and then not getting back out to Galisteo until 7:00 PM. Bummer.

Then, for the last week of April, I'm going down to Las Cruces to help out at the Transportation Engineering Conference... so I'm not going to have much time for web design. Bleh! I spit on April! The stars have aligned in an attempt to delay the timely delivery of my design, but I will prevail. Be sure to check back after May 1st... things WILL be different.

Andy Woodman's Blog / CSS Reboot

Let me tell you a little bit about Andy...

He's a technophile, pianist, berzerker, handyman, whiskey man and a ROCKER. This man is my brother, and he's got a blog.

I found all 4 entries riotously funny.

On a personal note, I signed up for another CSS Reboot today. On May 1st, 2005 at 12:00 PM GMT, webheads from around the globe will launch new web standards-based web designs, and I will be among them. I'm currently working on a new design that incorporates my favorite libation: WHISKEY!

A Sense of Humility

In the IT Industry, and web development/design in general, I think it is really important to maintain a strong sense of humility.

In the aftermath of the November 1st CSS reboot, I will say that my horizons have broadened dramatically by being able to see SO MUCH good web design in one place. And I noticed this: on October 31st, I went to bed thinking I was a pretty kick-ass web guy. On November 1st, after looking over many, many web pages, I felt like a little kid on the 1st day of kindergarten.

To be an internet professional is to be a perpetual student. The field changes so rapidly that you can literally learn something new every single day, and new techniques are deprecated within months as they are replaced by newer techniques.... and so on. And no matter how much you know... or how much experience you have... there is always room for improvement.

What does it all mean, Homer? The Point is: there is much to be learned from your fellow geeks. New approaches to old problems. New techniques to help you break out of your current box. But you must be able to swallow your pride in order to learn the lessons that are out there.

And to the CSS Rebooters who are in a tizzy over the whole vote thing: Forget about the site ratings. Pretend they don't Exist. Instead, spend your time looking at the other Rebooters' sites. Appreciate. Learn. Grow. And have Fun, Dammit!

More Internet Explorer / CSS what the ....

Okay. I'm really starting to get tired of these IE CSS quirks that keep popping up at really inopportune moments. Check out this example page in Firefox and Internet Explorer and note the difference. Does anyone know a) which browser is using the correct behavior (my bet is with firefox, of course), and b) is there a CSS hack that can make this type of scenario display consistently cross-browser?
