So, the doors have closed on the men’s World Cup, and we must all wait another 4 years for the mixture of glory, hype, and fun, it all brings…Oh well, I’m keeping my chin up. I can’t forget that it’s only another 8 months until March Madness! My money’s on Princeton (jk). It’s only a little less than a year away from when Houston and San Antonio could possibly be in the NBA title hunt as they stop LA’s wish for four. (*cross your fingers, we can only hope*) And who could forget that it’s only a year until Pete the Great Sampras can try for his eighth Wimbledon crown or the elusive French Open title. But most importantly, it’s only a week until Dr. Meter Reader runs the biggest race of his young 2-year-old life. Let’s hope he’s healthy. I’m going to have to take my seester’s advice and start a Dr. Meter Reader devotion page.
Hey! I’m back! The whole idea of a weblog is that it’s suppose to be kind of a daily journal, but it seems it’s been two weeks since my last entry. Oh well, I doubt too many people are reading this anyway. I’ve also beefed up the weblog a little. Basically taking care of template changes that weren’t done when I changed the look of the site.
I don’t know about you, but I am still coming down from the World Cup hype. The US actually made it to the quarterfinals! I think that’s quite an achievement for a country that calls the sport by the wrong name. Anyways, I read a great article the other day by Buck Harvey. As we triumphed in soccer, a sport not exactly America’s game, other countries are infiltrating our American sports. What we can’t be the best at everything? 🙂 Read the article if I’m confusing you. Tata.
Wow! I just completed an intensive revamp of the main page of my site. Do you like it? Please try to ignore the fact that a few links are broken, etc. I also don’t have all of the weblog pages formatted yet. All in time… For those who are interested, compare this page with the old one. Quite a contrast I must say. I also aim to do a revamp of my guestbook. It was programmed in coldfusion and perl when I was a novice at both, so don’t judge my programming skills based solely on that app.
So, I’ve been inspired to work on my webpage. Partly because I’m really bored with the current colors, and partly because I keep finding cool CSS tricks I want to use. That will probably have to wait until this weekend though. I think a complete revamp is in order. Essentially, everyone will have to ignore the construction on this site. If anyone has any ideas for a color scheme I should use, email me.
I’m continuing to work on my webpage though it is entirely a work in progress. I am feeling better about my project for work and am even a bit excited about where it’s going. I’m getting more feedback now, and it’s helping the process…A LOT. I’m really beginning to master XHTML, and I am really getting into CSS. Well, this post is much more positive than yesterday’s. Good.
So, I’ve been having a lot of fun (note the sarcasm) getting this blog to look right. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s really time consuming to revamp a webpage (like I didn’t know this before though). Am mentally exhausted from doing tedious web development all day (for work not play). XHTML is a good idea, in theory, but can be difficult to learn to program html the “correct” way. Anyways, I think I have it whipped…
