Google Fonts!May 22
I've recently been enjoying using the
@font-face property in CSS to add different fonts to help spice up my web pages without the need to use images. So it was great to hear the latest news from Google and their Fonts API & Font Directory! It seems rather simple to implement and even works in IE6. Looking forward to trying it out and seeing their library of fonts steadily grow!
Updates, Bug Fixes & IE statusMay 12
I made some design updates to the site, adding a few things here and there. I updated the Skills sidebar module so that now it is a bit clearer what are my varying levels of awesomeness in a particular skill.
I also snagged a quick bug I had missed. Apparently one of my files didn't FTP properly and I had a
div tag that was not closed properly. Site still worked, but I'm a stickler for solid HTML markup so I couldn't let it go! All is well now. We can sleep soundly.
As for IE compatibility, apart from some styles I need to modify, IE8 and IE7 seem to work alright. The CSS3 styles don't show up at all, so I need to apply styles specific for IE to compensate. IE6 seems like it is holding up ok, apart from the PNGs, but that was expected. So a bit more work and I should be able to reign in the IE's soon enough! Giddyup!
Redesigned Site Officially Launched!May 5
We have go for lift off! It's been a lot of work, but it's been worth it. I'm quite happy with how my redesigned web portfolio has turned out. I'll undoubtedly be making some small changes here and there and adding a bit more functionality, but overall it's looking good! Hope you all like it.
Redesign UpdateMay 3
Site redesign is nearly complete and ready for official launch! Just finalizing some details and checking some styles, but should be ready to go soon!
Post launch, I'll still be making some modifications and adjustments over time to help make the site more efficient. In the meantime, enjoy taking a look around!
CSS3 rocks!Apr 30
I've been learning and playing around with some of the new features of CSS3 for some time now, so during my portfolio web site redesign I decided to go ahead and experiment with some CSS3 magic! Overall I'm pretty happy with what the new features can provide.
The only caveat is that some of the features don't yet work in all the browsers and pretty much none of the features work in browsers of the "Internet Explorer" variety. Since I've been experimenting with the visuals of this site, I haven't had a chance to go through and make adjustments so that a relatively similar experience can be had on IE browsers. Over the next couple weeks I'll be making those adjustments, so if you're currently using IE, just bear with me for the time being. Either that or give Firefox a shot!
Web Site RedesignApr 28
Working on transitioning the graphics and content along with the redesign of the site to my live server! Site should be going live in the next few days. Just need to make sure I iron out any bugs.
