Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004

April 5, 2005

I'm on my own when it comes to learning new software, and I've had a lot to learn. Recently I scoured Amazon and finally decided on Visual Quickstart's Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 by J. Tarin Towers. I haven't been sorry, and believe me, I've run the book through its paces.

For starters, I'd never before used a WYSIWYG editor. I prefer to code by hand because I feel I have better control over the page. I can make HTML do things no WYSIWYG has even heard of. But I had a client who used Dreamweaver and wanted their staff to be able to use it to update their new site.

The Hill Looks Kind of Steep from Down Here

I've been on lone kid duty for four days now while Jon is at the Final Four in St. Louis. I haven't gotten much done.

In between getting sippy cups of juice and sitting on the footstool in the bathroom because a couple of the other inhabitants of this house are scared of being on the potty alone too long, I managed to finally get over to the CSS Zen Garden.

Why Aren't Women More Prominent on the Web?

Speaking of women…I read an interesting quote in Molly Holzschlag's Women Bloggers Just Ain't Good Enough:

Here's a different explanation for why the blogosphere is dominated by white males: because they're the ones producing the best product. Sorry, ladies, but there aren't as many of us engaged in aggressive, competitive opinionizing and nonstop consumption of politics as our male tormentors. --Heather MacDonald

Moveable Type: Sidebar "Pseudo" Blogroll

March 25, 2005

I was having trouble getting SSIs to work on this site. Usually my host is good about stuff like that, but maybe they were having an off week. Unfortunately, I really wanted to include a list of links on my sidebar, but didn't want to hardcode them in as I expect them to change fairly frequently. I needed to find a work-around.
