Realignment

I’ve been toying with the idea of revamping the overall look of the site, but that takes time, and I already spend way too much time on the computer as is. Plus, I’m having a hard time coming up with something I like better than my current design. So, it’s realignment time again. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I’m going to make it better. Having said that, here’s your warning: Things are going to definitely start breaking on the site over the next few days. Please pardon the mess.

Changes to RSS Feed

I’ve made a change to the RSS feed on my site that should reduce some of the noise you get from my site in your feed reader. Rather than bore you with Asides, Quotes of the Day and Thoughts of the Day, I’m now excluding them from my regular feed. If, for some reason you’d like to keep receiving this sort of stuff along with regular entries, I’ve set up an alternate feed for your enjoyment. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you. I’m instituting this change for your benefit, not mine!

Space is Limited

Register for the Webmaster Jam Session by September 13th and you could win a stay in one of two Presidential Suites at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Dallas, TX. Space is getting very limited (less than 17 seats remain as of today!) so if you’re planning to go, what’re you waiting for?

I’m planning to leave for Dallas on Thursday, September 20th with at least a brief stop planned for Birmingham – where I hope to drop in to see Jeremy Flint at Kinetic Communications. If you’re planning on going and want to meet up in Dallas, drop me an email or follow me via twitter.

Accomplishing the Impossible

I hadn’t really thought about it much – until tonight – but Adobe accomplished the impossible with Creative Suite 3: It represents the first true offspring of the marriage of Adobe and Macromedia. Definitive Macromedia apps like Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash were rolled into the Adobe fold and are now being served up alongside apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, and InDesign. Keeping that in mind, it’s amazing there weren’t more problems with the release of CS3. That is all.
