A Spooky Basecamp Theme…

Here’s a “trick” from Rbird.com’s About Design blog on how you can update the appearance of Basecamp with these treats. (Kill me for my puns, I beg you.) I wonder if it would freak our clients out if we changed how Basecamp looked all of a sudden? Hmm…. This gives me an idea… it would… Continue reading A Spooky Basecamp Theme…

Just got my grubby little hands on the Flock Developer Preview (0.4.8) and I gotta say… wow. If I have time tomorrow, I will post screenshots. I like what I’m seeing so far.

Certified HTML Developer

Woohoo… I’m a Certified HTML Developer according to W3Schools.com now… took an “exam” that covered three topics: CSS, HTML and XHTML – and passed! (Got 66 of 70 questions right.) I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t do better, but I don’t think my results were that bad, especially considering I did absolutely no studying… Continue reading Certified HTML Developer

Brief Observations on the Oct. 12 Apple Event

John Gruber had a lot of interesting stuff to note aboot yesterday’s Apple Special Event: The new iPods do not support FireWire. Not just no FireWire cables in the box; no FireWire, period. Such is the price of smaller and thinner, I suppose. Highest capacity iPod is still 60 GB. There certainly exists a market… Continue reading Brief Observations on the Oct. 12 Apple Event
