NewEgg Update

Okay, my initial frustration over my NewEgg order has been diminished a little. I was offered ten dollars off of a comparable product and went ahead and ordered a larger flash card. I hope my ancient Canon Powershot can handle a 512MB card. It has already destroyed a 256MB PQI card and I was concerned that it was size limited. Anyhow, I will following the tracking info to the minute if I have to this time.

Major Overhaul of the Site in Progress

What the heck happened to my site?! Well, in an effort to kick my butt in gear, and force myself to reorganize and redesign my site.

I've stripped out the look-and-feel elements and will slowly be working on applying an automated system of templates. I will also be deleting and or rearranging sections to help reign in some of the urban sprawl of my site architecture. This is a bit of an experiment. It's somewhat unsual to put the design process of a site out in the open. This should be interesting... check back soon for updates.

The transition to XHTML is almost complete. The entire site has been changed to XHTML. However, not all the pages validate yet. I am going through page by page and fixing bugs tonight.

This site is creeping into the twenty-first century. I have begun the translating the code for all these pages to XHTML and have completely separated style from content with a <table> free, CSS layout!

I've added some scans of some wood engravings I made to my art gallery. These babys are for sale! Cheap! Cheap! Cheap!
