I’ve gotten a lot of satisfaction out of keeping track of the books I’ve been reading. I only wish I’ve always had a list of what I have been reading and when. Now I want to take more control of the books I intend to read. So far I’m not sure if I like the system I have going but I don’t think I’m that far off.
Top 5 Ways To Make Me Cry
Nothing makes me more sad then when a bad article get popular. SEOmoz has an article called “5 HTML elements you probably never use (but perhaps should)” a title that would get about any article bookmarked. But it’s a very disingenuous title.
They think you should use the <q> tag for quotes though it has no support in IE. How is this helpful at all? Sure it’s sad that IE doesn’t support it but it’s hard to then tell me I should always be using that tag.
And I would argue that <acronym> and <abbr> are fairly wide used. I maybe biased since I read mostly web designer blogs but I see these all the time.
I’m coming to the point where I dread clicking on any article with top 10 this or 5 of this other thing you should use. When will the insanity stop?
I’m not sure who was hired to redesign the Boston Transit Authority’s web site but so far I’m excited
I'm not sure who was hired to redesign the Boston Transit Authority's web site but so far I'm excited. They have a really nice header that animates down from the top to get people to take a survey and if you check the code it all uses css and the DOM. The design is simple and strong and if the header is any look in to how the final site will look I can't wait.
New York–New Jersey English. A heated topic at my college.
Earthseed by Pamela Sargent was one of my favorite books from junior high
Earthseed by Pamela Sargent was one of my favorite books from junior high. It was out of print and I had a hard time finding but I finally did and now it sits on my shelf waiting for Keri to read it. Oddly enough 25 years after it was first published Pamela is coming out with a sequel (Farseed) and seems to make a trilogy out of it. I want to be happy about it but I’m dubious instead. I wish Pamela the best of luck writing it.
