Been Soo.. Busy

Category : Around The Office

I know this is the story for everyone this time of year, but sheesh, for me its been crazy. My hat is off to people who blog on a daily (or more) basis. Its hard work to stay on it.

My only excuse would be that in December I’ve signed 5 new clients, launched 3 sites, blown and rebuilt my computer, and got hired as an adjunct professor at the University of Hartford teaching design on the web. So it’s been a full month!

I’ll plan to be posting more about cool code snippits and ways to condense css early next month.
For instance in the relaunch of freedomfromalcohol.com I redid the navigation in css, without tables and cut the code from 200+ lines to 54. This is after I gutted the code earlier from 320 down to 200. The navigation has grown since I started reworking the code and there is still 70% less code now than there was.

CSS is great.
