Does code matter?

Well, I have already mentioned Codecademy’s approach and will get back to this. Disclosure: I have been using their site to look at their lessons for 97 days, now. There are other sites of this type, but their setup ¬†is nice to use to twiddle with a little code each day. But, I have a…

Miscellany

There was a flurry of activity related to updating the button handling¬†for awhile. Mostly, the time was spent getting up to speed. After that little bit of effort, and then making a decision about the approach, it was a matter of doing the work, testing, and then distributing the changes throughout the pages, as necessary…

Shapes

As said, this blog is technically oriented. But, in the nested world of reality, one person’s technical is another’s abstraction (let’s discuss). Those whose services will be in demand in the future (in order for us to have sustainability and a lot more) ought to be able to be able to bridge many levels of…

Buttons and more

The button work is mostly done except for some tweaking and figuring out a good scheme for handling Beacon issues. Essentially, rather than a collection of table cells, the buttons are an un-ordered list that is formatted via CSS. Right now, the sub-menus (About us, What’s new) are static. Now, on to things related to…

Button work in progress

Thanks to those who teach, I got a huge start on the button modification today. Didn’t take long once the decisions about color and shape were made. There are two pages left to do pending a decision about a nesting method. Now, given today’s exposure, CSS looks interesting. I want to move from tables to…

CSS plus

As the prior post suggested, I was leaning toward WordPress and/or CSS. And, so, I have been playing with both. For WordPress, we will have our own blog (now under here and blogspot.com). Too, though, the extent of users, and their work, shown via the Showcase is impressive. But, why not have both? So, I…

Links, and more

Way back in the beginning, you could find people’s lists on the web. Some were just plain text; others used tables to arrange things a little better. CSS, of course, was an attempt to allow more flexibility (for one thing). I, just now, went to search in its history and found several useful sites. I’ll…

Decisions, decisions

Today, I played with a couple of things that pertain to this effort, as in how to do, rather than what to do. At Codecademy’s site, I have gone through most of the lessons (it’s fun, but, too, we need a code-related Magna Charta). I mentioned that I liked the interpreter, but under it is…

Content creation versus management

In the context of managing content (and producing it, to boot), I have looked at various approaches. A couple of years ago, I was using OfficeLive, nicely provided for free by MS, which had some nice tools. I can explain, eventually. For now, let me just say that when I went over to another web…
