All I Really Need To Know I Learned From Structural Markup [Jul. 12th, 2005|11:23 am]
Lindsey Kuper

Everything that doesn't hold together perfectly should fall apart spectacularly. All those math and CS courses and yet that only just sank in, just now, as I realized that if it takes this much effort to trump up a design so that there's exactly one top-level heading per page, then there's gotta be something fundamentally wrong somewhere.

Man. Every time I think I'm ready to be done with all this stuff, I have to go and have an epiphany.

I think my eyeballs are going to fall out...I've been getting up early every day for the past 2 weeks and going in early to fill in for missing people...all after a long and stress-filled 90 minute commute and a fight for parking. I can't wait for some downtime to work more on my page and give my eyes a well-deserved break. If they were union, they'd have gone on strike about 8 days ago...

And for your pages, I've found that the simplest solution for most things is usually the most difficult to implement...which is why Javascript was created. Heh heh.

I'm gettin' an iPod, soon, so will you be podcasting your music? I hope so!! I'd love to hear it!

I completely disagree. =) That's my whole point -- if it's really hard, then that means that either you or someone else violated some basic principle somewhere. Thus it error-checks itself. That's what I like about it.

Dude, I'm so not even close to being set up for "podcasting" (it's going to be a while before I can stomach that term, but I'll eventually cave just like I did with "blog"). I do have a website with songs on it, which is helpful for pretending that I still have a band.
