CSS Naked Day

Yesterday if you happened to visit this site you would have noticed all the styles were turned off. This was done to celebrate the third annual CSS Naked Day.

The idea behind this event is to promote Web Standards. Plain and simple. This includes proper use of (x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words…

It only happens once a year in April, so if you didn’t participate this year, mark your calendars for next year and show your support for web standards.

Warning About Checking Domain Names at Network Solutions

This is a warning to those using Network Solutions to check if certain domain names are available.

Seems they now reserve each domain that is searched on their site for five days. Thus, forcing you to buy it from them in that time period. Plus, they charge approximately three times as much as more competitive registration companies (e.g. GoDaddy, NameCheap) for a (1) year registration. You have been warned.

Spam Spam Spam

There is no such thing as good Spam.

I received 354 spam comments on my “Rebooted!” post since 11/02/06. 354! After reading Dave Shea’s blog post “Borderline” I am now implementing a new WordPress plugin called Akismet that boasts it nearly eliminates all comment spam.

I’ll update you on the results later.
