Tasmanian Department Of Education Redesign

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

“A brave move placing all stylesheets inside @import statements”
The new Tasmanian Department of Education website is finally up (minus skip links I notice) and it would be easy to look at this with its 25 errors on the home page at HTML 4.01 Strict and be more critical than it deserves. The fact is its […]

“Like it or not the world we’re living in is shrinking”

“My pages WILL validate and life will go on regardless”
The must read article of the day for developers of course is Joe Clark’s To Hell With WCAG 2 over on A List Apart. If you haven’t read it then run over and give it a burl and come on back I guess. I’ve not been […]

Not The Friggin’ News Volume 1

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

“Not The Friggin’ News Volume 1 is about REVOLUTION”
So Norty Pig has rebooted into Not The Friggin’ News Volume 1 and your first thoughts were what the hell was I thinking? Small text, lots of image maps, a heavy page, yada yada. Yes I can see your point but that small text can be scaled […]

Why not cross two bridges for the price of a single shiny penny? I mean I’m rebooting Norty Pig for the CSS Reboot and thought it may as well be a May 1st Reboot as well. Being the same day. Being the same site.
I have […]

Reboot The Pig Instead

Saturday, April 22nd, 2006

“With some late nights and no video games this is a doable feat”
The madness of looking at the calendar and seeing the week left before the reboot - and then thinking I’ve not got a show of getting the Pig Work redesign done in time (as if that was ever going to happen) - and […]
