Some Little Tidbits


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

    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.

    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.
