Netscape Is No More

Thursday, July 17th, 2003

Indeed a sad day it was when I found that Netscape was being dismantled by AOL. Never really used the newer versions of Netscape but rather I use Mozilla, the codebase for the former Netscape. As many people are saying, the major blow here is that there is no longer a major competitor for Internet Explorer. It will be a while until another browser can take Netscape’s place on the battlefield.

Happy Birthday to Me!

At 12:05pm EST today I officially turn 21 years old. I don’t feel any different yet. Probably won’t for a few days. We’ll see.

Hiatus and Interium Events

Tuesday, July 1st, 2003

Been away for a while here. My drive to write comes and goes. This was one of those times. Here is a brief review of what has happened since my last post.

In my absence there has been a renewal of the mini icons article I did over on Brainstorms and Raves.

I discovered that Winamp3 is essentially at a stop in its development. Nullsoft is now focusing on Winamp2 and a combination of the two to become a Winamp5 (2 + 3 = 5) of sorts, taking the best of both and putting them together. In reaction to this I stopped using Winamp3 and rolled back to Winamp2. I forgot how much better 2 is than 3. Not to mention there is just more out there for 2 then there is for 3.

Got my copy of Designing With Web Standards. This book is fantastic. I’ll do a full write up shortly. Go visit the mini-site (see the DWWS button).

I’ve started moderating on a new web development forum, Advanced Web Aid. They are very young and looking for members. I know one of the head admins, some really great people over there. Go check them out. Join even!

And perhaps the best news of all, a new job fell in my lap. Seriously. No resume (yet, at least), no searching (they searched me out) and best of all, all the employees are my friends. Unfortunately I must keep the details down for a while to protect the new company but as soon as I can, I promise I will fill in some details.

I believe that’s it. I’ll post as things come to mind.

Oh, I turn 21 in 16 days. Yeah for me!
