Almost Done

For the most part I'm done designing my blog. After working on it for weeks, I've even let Carebear link to it. I still have a few things to tweak here and there, but for the most part, it's come together pretty well. The funny thing is, I've probably spent more time designing it than I'll ever spend writing in it.

It still looks a little off in Internet Explorer, so I recomend Firefox if you want to see it displayed correctly. You can't blame me for not trying though, I spent a couple days just trying to get IE to dispay the page at all, and then about 2 weeks trying to make it look right in IE, and in spite of I.E.'s complete disregard for web standards, I think I've managed to make it look pretty decent. It still looks better in Firefox, Opera, Safari, Netscape, or any browser this side of 2001.

Overall, I had a lot of fun designing it. I learned a ton about CSS and web design in general, and, considering the last time I designed a webpage was circa 1993(it had some wicked mouseover glowing buttons, and used two frames!), I'd have to say that I'm impressed with how this one turned out.

I figure most of my posts will be ranting about technology, gadgets, work, and the occasional update on my incredibly uninteresting life. So don’t go adding me to your bookmarks just yet, you might be sorely disappointed if you do.

Anyway, I thought it would be fitting to start my blog by giving credit to those whose content I "borrowed" in making this site:

First and foremost, if you're a fan of Collective Soul (and who isn't), then you may have already noticed that my site bears a slight resemblance to Believe it or not, this was completely unintentional.

  1. Your life is incredibly uninteresting? Aw man... I'm boring...

  2. Ok, so that was a lie. I do have a pretty interesting life, but I figure that most people wouldnt be as interested as I am in my daily life.

  3. Eh . . . lives are always interesting!
