Happy Birthday Elizabeth

Happy 80th birthday to the Queen for today (or is it yesterday? This timezone thing can get confusing). Even the Queen gets oversized novelty birthday cards.

I feel like I'm making progress

It's taken me nearly 3 years, but I've finally come to terms with leaving the 80s behind and gotten rid of the ASCII art page headers on my website.

It was a bit of an impulsive move last night - I did the artwork and html/css last night (took about 40 minutes) so I'm sure it's not perfect in all browsers, and the other colours used in the site clash with the blue.

So I reckon I'm probably about web 1.5 now. The header image works at all window sizes but to be really web 2.0 I need fat (or is that phat) borders that waste 30% of your expensive 20" lcd screen. I'm also using inneficient circa 2001 code (OpenACS 4.something) and of course to get to web 2.0 I'll need to start using typo and Ruby.

Still, it's a start ;)
