I had a rather splendid weekend. Shanna and I had a delicious Lenten meal at R&O’s in Bucktown on Friday. The site of all the big Catholic families, the flavor of the delicious fried seafood platters and cold Barq’s root beer transported me back to the glory days of my childhood. After Dinner we went home and watched Donnie Darko: The Director’s Cut, which is an excellent revision of the original.
I spent all Saturday & most of Sunday working on the redesign of my portfolio site. It’s the first time I’ve done an entire site in valid XHTML/CSS and I have to say that so far I am loving it. After spending 8 hours building style sheets and XHTML documents then rapidly deploying a ton of distinctly different yet cohesive pages I really cannot imagine going back to the “old way” of table based HTML design.
