Beautiful webpages


I really should get rid of the default MT template and do something spiffier. This is a bit too grey and this (fulifier via yoak) is a bit too colorful. What to do ... what to do ...

The friendly Airborne Express delivery person just dropped off Final Cut Pro 4. 4 DVDs. Must. Do. Work. Focus. On. Coding. And. Stuff.

It doesn't even install on a G3, so now not having a G4+ portable mac is even more painful. (No, the powermac with the old fashioned 21" CRT is not portable). I just can't bring myself to buy a powerbook when new ones are coming out any week now. Or maybe I can ... hmn... Must. Focus. Do. Work.

Yeah, managing the back-end of the site is a lot of work. I finally moved to a more automated tool (from the makers of MovableType) Typepad ( Now it is easy to mess with the look feel. I recommend it, once the beta is done!
