My 2016 Site Makeover
Finally making the leap, I released a new template for my primary website this weekend. As noted in the past, I’ve been fed up with my 2006 based theme and have been testing out new designs for a few months now…

How to Build a Site - Again
I’ve been using this theme and with the WebAPP CMS for a few years now. Unfortunately, it is getting a bit old in the tooth. Although mostly flat, which fits nicely with today’s designs, it isn’t responsive. In fact, the original mobile version of the site was for the Palm Pilot. Really? So, …

No Spaces for You
I wasn’t sure in my last post how to remove the extra space from the program listings. Well, I figured it out. It was surprisingly easy and took me about five minutes of searching and updating. Apparently there is a CSS property called line-height. Set it to one and problem solved…

Updated Program Listing
Awhile back I went searching for a decent ZX81 font and ran across ZX81 VDU. I played around adding it to my site’s footer, but I really wanted to do more with it. It’s pretty good and, unlike some other fonts I found, it has all the ZX81 graphic characters…

Fixing for IE10 and Other Updates
I happened to load my sites into IE10 the other day and noticed the reflections were broken. Generally, I wouldn’t care much as I don’t use IE except at work. However, I thought it best that things not continue to look different. I updated reflection.js to the latest version…

Fun with Fonts
I decided to play around a bit and try a different font for my site. My original goal was to use something with better kerning and ligatures, but most browsers don’t seem ready for that yet. I settled on using Trebuchet MS as my new site font…

CSS Fun and Standards
I’ve playing around with other CMS systems lately to get a feel for what is out there. I recently had the opportunity to hack around in WordPress and ran across a neat little utility in some of their docs. It is an external Online CSS Optimiser/Optimizer that does some CSS compression…

Reflective Fun
I’ve been using Reflection.js for some time now to generate reflective category images. I did this mainly to avoid having to create the reflections by hand. However, it has always had a bit of a lag when generating the reflections. This can be a bit jarring at times, but I’ve gotten used to it…

Fixing Code
I really haven’t liked the way the code routine displays on my blog. It adds a lot of white space and generally looks bad. To make things a bit nicer, I removed the Code: message, set the overflow to auto instead of scroll, and I removed the extra breaks. Here is the CSS I’m using: …

Not Having Any Fun with IE8
I got around to upgrading IE8 to the latest beta 2 today. Mostly, I wanted to see if they had fixed the float issues. Well, they had — at least the float that was also broke on Microsoft’s own site now worked. However, my site still had a problem…

Using Reflection.js 2.0
Cow’s Blog has an update to Reflection.js to version 2.0. I’ve wasted no time in updating my site and, surprise, I don’t notice any difference! However, if you use the new Google! Chrome browser or IE8, things should look a bit better. Great bit of code and worth a try.

Fun with Reflections
In playing around with iTunes, I really like the way the CoverFlow looks, especially the reflections. So, I started searching around to see if there was something similar for Vista. I didn’t find any finders, but I did run into a few javascript scripts that had some neat features…
