Jason Fried posted a teaser screenshot of a new layout they’ll be rolling out for Basecamp in the Basecamp Forums. I’m liking it so far… This is also cool, because this marks the first time (that I can recall) where 37Signals made users aware of a change before they made it… Nice work guys!
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 whatsoever before I took the test.
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 of people who want larger capacity iPods (I know at least four people personally who can’t fit their entire libraries on a 60 GB drive … and I don’t have many friends), but I don’t think Apple sees this as a significant selling point. Thinner and lighter seems to be what Apple thinks will sell … and judging by the Nano’s popularity, they’re almost certainly right.
Last week, Kim and I went to Prenatal Imaging in Martinez, GA to get a 4-D Sonogram done.We took this step for two reasons. First, there was a degree of uncertainty starting to surround the Baby Gender Mentor test we had done in July. (The test reported we had a boy, but there’s some concern about the validity of the Baby Gender Mentor test.) Secondly, there was a degree of curiosity as to what the baby might look like inside of Kim’s body.The 4-D Sonogram was awesome.I met Kim at the Prenatal Imaging offices at 4pm on Thursday afternoon. They had Kim fill out some paperwork and select a plan. They then escorted us to the songram room where Kim’s parents, sister and brother-in-law, my mom, and our niece Meaghan joined us. They helped Kim up onto the examination table and laid her down. For 35 minutes we were able to sit and watch as they “peered” into Kim’s tummy. It was awesome, awe-inspiring thing to watch. Little Tyler’s already very active. He moved a lot inside of Kim. We got to watch him suck his thumb… and yawn… and stick out his tongue… It was amazing at how much detail the 4-D Sonogram picked up.We’re anxiously awaiting his arrival now. Kim is 29 weeks along, and we’re expecting to have Tyler delivered by C-Section sometime on or around 12/20-21.Our next session is scheduled for November 12th. I’ll post pics and video from that session as soon as I have it available to me :)
