I Do Apologise

Sorry for the lack of posts, the reason being Well i’ve been pretty busy over the last few weeks, I will be starting a new chapter in my life over the next few weeks, as I will be starting at City University in North London.
I’m looking forward to it, but am more nervous at the moment (about making friends, whether I will be able to do the work, my finances – that sort of thing).

I’ve also got a project going on at work, I volunteered to design the in-branch newsletter for Waitrose. I wish I hadn’t now, due to my design skills being
pretty much that of a ten year old. (At least if I do a good job i’ll get paid)
but it should be good experience for me, plus something to put on my CV.

I’ll probably do a post about it when they give me the specification, i’ve
got this really awful feeling in the pit of my stomach that they are going
to want me to design it in Microsoft Publisher, i’m praying that this will not
be the case.

How come when the time comes around for me to start something important everything else important comes up as well.
I have had three/four months to do anything I wanted since I finished my A-Levels, since then I’ve pretty much done nothing but now i’m starting Uni, i’ve decided to start learning to driving, take on this project for work and redo my website (not going well at the moment, CSS floats and selectors can be a ruddy pain in the backside).
What the hell is wrong with me? I’ve really got to get my priorities in order otherwise it will all just get on top of me! 

I Won the Designers Block CSS Sandbox Comp

I Won the Designers Block CSS Sandbox Competition for June, I’m on a high right now, you can view the entry on the site here, after they uploaded it I noticed a few things wrong with the entry such as the background gradient not just stopping mid page in wider browsers and some text being too far over to the right. So I fixed them by just changing a few things with the CSS, they havent got round to uploading the fixed version of it so I uploaded the newer one to my site here.

Any feedback would be appreciated, this is my first time I have ever really done anything like this with CSS as I’m a beginner, so far though people seem to like it, Iknow its not CSS Amazing but at least it works right?

A FreeCSSCart Update and some Google Analytics

Well the freecsscart.com updated, it wasn't quite what I expected as they linked back to this site to say thanks for this site linking to them.

cheers guys. 

Apart from that, the site says they are still working on the full feature list they promised.

Google Analytics

I received a Google Analytics account, on Monday, and so far I've been very impressed with it. It has a nice interface, is easy to use and the stats are most probably the best i've ever seen. I highly recommend it.

BlogMad has gone a bit Mad

Yeah i tried to log in, but no such luck there are also lots of mysql stuff all over the front page.
edit:Looks like they are working on their servers or something. So they say!

———————————————————
One of my bosses called me up today and said would I be able to do some overtime. So far i have been able to get out of not doing any overtime becuase they didn’t have my number, now they do. Oh im so annoyed, I have so much work to do for college over the holdiays (since I left it all to this last week), and they want me to do more at work. Im going to pull the phone lead out of the socket. So that they cannot get in touch with me!

Styleswitcher

I’ve been working really hard on my website for college, i have now finished adding all the content to it, now i just have to do two more CSS styles for my stlyswitcher to work, talking of styleswitcher. It took me ages yesterday to figure out why my styleswitcher wouldn’t work. Then i realised the fault was in the tutorial and not with me. The styleswitcher uses Javascript, and it works really well. Now I just have to make everythign look nice then do the write up for it.

My Health

Ive got a blood test this afternoon, so im on the way to finding out whats wrong with me. im kinda nervous about it. Not that im squemish around blood or anything. I just hate hospitals.

superman magazine in my ‘fake’ website + My Beer Type

superman magazine Click the Photo to Enlarge

I created this magazine using the magazine creator on Flickr Toys.
I have decided I am going to use it in my ‘fake’ website, which is about Film as it looks really professional.
Watcha think?

Also i found out my beer type, you guys on the Designers Block forum might like this:


You Are Bud Light


You’re not fussy when it comes to beer. If someone hands it to you, you’ll drink it.
In fact, you don’t understand beer snobbery at all. It all tastes the same once you’re drunk!
You’re an enthusiastic drinker, and you can often be found at your neighborhood bar.
You’re pretty good at holding your liquor too – you’ve had lots of experience.
