This article talks about how everyone (me included) is just copying the CSS layouts of glish and bluerobot instead of pushing it like eric meyer is. He is right. The time is right to really try to learn and understand CSS positioning and exploit it instead of pandering to the browsers with poor DOM support. If done right, your content will still be accessible to those browsers.
I took the time to read brainjar's css articles yesterday as I attempt to move the intranet site I do sitedev for at work to CSS for layout. Is rather a pain, though, because we have a large installed user base of Unix users who use Netscape 4.7 and don't plan on moving up to a better browser. So I've been putting in server side browser checks and calling different templates based on browser version. Yuck. I would really like to leave tables behind, but at work, it is impossible.
I hope to find the time to quickly move iaslash over from it's current tabled layout to CSS positioned blocks as well.

I love telecommuting for several reasons, none of which have to do with the company I work for.
Today, I worked for a few hours with bedhead and then took care of Lorenzo as Robin went to work for the morning. Then Lorenzo and I played around the house doing his usual fun stuff these days -- putting lids on jars, doing the downward facing dog asana (really!), eating a cracker, some raisins, playing with the phone, and reading his favorite board book, Bang, Toot Toot. Later I went out and got tamales and churros for lunch. Only bad thing today was that Lorenzo kicked off his shoe somewhere on our walk and I wasn't able to find it. So sad.
Sigh. And now it's time to return to work again.
Went out for a walk this morning on 5th Ave., Brooklyn. Lorenzo wanted to go down on the ground, so I let him down and we walked hand in hand. Was super cute because he's only 29 inches tall and I had to stoop down to hold his little hand. He walked about 2 city blocks until I had to pick him up.
webgraphics pointed me to an excellent exquisite corpse site. Corpses are done in graphics programs. Cool stuff. The first time I saw exquisite corpse drawings was in college in the art history program -- a short coverage of surrealism. Then shortly after -- sometime in 1992 -- I saw the Cadavre Exquise show at the Drawing Center on Wooster St. in New York. Great parlor fun. I think the idea of photoshoping cadavre exquise is a great idea, but I wonder if the immediacy/disposability of doing them in isolation loses something in the spirit of the game.
Lorenzo turns 1 today!
One year ago, on a snowy Sunday morning in Brooklyn our beautiful boy came into the world. I was lucky enough to be a part of the experience as Robin brought him into the world in our bedroom and I caught his little body. Today is a wonderful day.
A new php groupware application. Looks promising. Will check out soon, although I'm sure people at work wouldn't use it. Programmers at work won't even install PHP for me.
