A Dull April Fool’s Day

There was a rash of black and white April Fool’s Day sites this year. We weren’t the only ones to do it but I think we did it best, if I do say so myself. There were three parts to our little switch and it wouldn’t have been the same without any of them: Desaturating […]

A blessing and a curse.

June 12: I decide I’m not taking any more free lance work on this summer. I have two donated time projects I’ve been wanting to finish, three web aps I’d like to write for myself and two blogs to skin. June 14: One of my regulars calls and asks me just to “put up an […]

I was in Winnipeg speaking at the CADE/AMTECH Conference last week.

Styling Our Style Sheets

I’ve been wanting to seriously redo some of the HTML and CSS behind the BCIT site since I came on board here almost a year ago. Well, I get my wish. We’re going to take some baby steps towards semantic HTML and CSS (POSH if you like) and despite my aversion to being in charge, […]

Web Directions North

I thought I’d post my summary of Web Directions North that I distributed to the department a month or so after the conference. I’ve been wanting to write a more technical and personal review of it but it’s pretty clear to me that if I haven’t done it by now, I’m not going to get […]

What’s keeping me busy?

Well, outside of my day job I’m: making my Mum a website moving hosting servers for digitalphoenix.ca learning cgi so I can create an auto generated thank you message for HOPE‘s donors taking Mandarin (what was I thinking?)
