Some Little Tidbits

Please note: this is an old post. I have been blogging for a really long time: since my childhood, in fact. Bear in mind that any opinions stated may have changed, any code snippets may no longer be considered safe or secure, and my personal circumstances are almost certainly different to what's contained herein. You have been warned...

Firstly, CSSbake was very recently featured in a Smashing Magazine post on 40+ Helpful Resources On User Interface Design Patterns, which is a huge boost to CSSbake as a website and growing resource for webmasters. Huge congratulations to Ben, obviously, and to Melissa, who’ve both been putting in all the work lately to keep it ticking over while I lounge in pregnant misery.

In other news, I have been desperately trying to roll out some updates to my own site in what little free time I have, and because of Amelie‘s PHPAskIt, have now got a fully working FAQ (except not) script for the first time in about 6 months. Alongside that I’ve updated a few articles (typo corrections only), and published Common Windows Myths in which I attempt to be as neutral as I can (so it’s not a “XYZ sucks please use something else!” article) while still correcting a few misconceptions.

Desperately trying to get through a backlog of projects, 5 month old emails and other such delights while I have a little energy in the evenings, so bear with me if you’re waiting on something. Cheers!

    You should get someone to help you with those e-mails. I’m sure there are a lot of the same type of e-mails that can be answered with simple answers. :)

    Congratulations on CSSbake :)

    @Emsz: that’s why I’m hoping the working FAQ script will come in handy. I can start directing people back to things that have been answered (likewise, they can search, yay :D )

    :D I do like my tasty home baked pai. Pity I haven’t got off my bum and finished the latest version though, hmmm

    Congrats on the SM linkage :D

    Ugh. Finally. Now I can go back to asking you dumb questions. ;)

    This relates more to your article about Windows myths than your actual blog post, but I just wanted to let you know that you’re definitely not alone in being a Windows user by choice.

    The amount of cursing that comes from Sam’s mouth whenever he has to use a Linux or Mac computer for his programming is astounding. :P

    Congratulations on CSSbake getting featured! It’s definitely worthy of the recognition, I take a gander at it every time I want to make a new layout.

    The Windows Myth article is fantastic. My friend is a huge Mac loyalist, it’s quite irritating.

    That’s fantastic about CSSbank; congrats. It’s an all-around great website but I especially love the ‘cookbook’ section.

    Congrats for CSSBake! It deserves the recognition :)

    Tidbits? I always thought it was "titbits". Clearly I was wrong, and just as well really. Although my Firefox spell-checker seems to think I was right all along. Never mind, whatever.

    Good lick with getting stuff done and that. I generally find myself cheesed off that nobody can muster up the botherment to email me. Obviously I need to be careful what I wish for.

    awesome news for CSSbake. It has such awesome inspiration. :)

    And I can’t even get things done normally… I think you’re doing things amazingly fast.

    I found CSSbake a few months back, but it was pretty empty and dead-looking, which was a pity…it’s an excellent idea for a site. CSS gallery + applied tutorials.

    There’s much more to it, so I’m quite happy to have another site to add to my bookmarks.
