CSS Stylesheets and a New Website

At long last, the website refresh is complete. Even though my webmaster created the CSS and the layout, there was still a pretty solid learning curve for me. Not too difficult, but learning the difference between html and shtml (no, its NOT "secure" html as I had been led to believe), what a #include statement means, making sure you have all your relative and absolute path names correct, then making that final tar ball, waiting FOREVER for it to upload, then figuring out what to use ftp vs telnet vs ssh for. Once the tar ball was unzipped, there's that final little QA check and the "oops, thought I'd done that," with a few quick little ftp file transfers and voila, we have a new web site.

I like it. Let me know what you think.

A New Look for

Well, the technology rewrite is in progress and very soon I'll be moving a whole new version of my website on line. It won't look too different from the current website, but the underlying technology upgrade will improve the consistency of the site and allow much easier "face lifts" in the future. Plus, a new site for Knowledge Integration: Retro will be launched. For the technology history buffs out there, there will be some trips down technology's memory lane.
