Day 4

Posted by Mummy Dearest on May-26-2005

Today was Day 4 of trying to design/ make the new site. I had predicted that on this day, I would throw my hands up in the air and go back to tables.

I spent a lot of time over the last days trying to figure out how to do what I wanted to do. Why, yesterday alone, I worked so long and so hard that I totally f*cked up everything I had done during the previous days.

At lunch today, two attempts to recreate what I had, for that brief moment, failed. I began to wonder why I wasn’t using tables : truth be told, no reason for fancy- schmancy on this page ( note the hands are slowly rising from the desk).

And then at 4pm , I had the Aha! moment, things clicked back together, and I almost have recreated that first attempt.

And that is where I have been, instead of replying to comments, chewing the fat, being sociable or being just down- right polite.

I have given myself until Monday to figure out the next step, so I may be scarce until then as well. I find that I am having a bit of a hard time adding a third dimension to CSS, although I understand layers just fine. The Z- index thing is only just starting to make sense.

    aha feels so much better than awfuqit.

    Hem, Karan , it is neat. It is forcing me to look at CSS more closely, to get that third dimension in.

    Not that that matters all that much, it is on the same level of a crossword puzzle.

    You know, truth be told, there is no reason on earth that I should be trying this for what I have in mind.

    I just enjoy the brain strain, if you know what I mean.

    And I am amazed at the changes in CSS since I hacked this place to bits-

    Next step is making an img a block. Or maybe an element. I’m not sure. Something with an absolute position and a z- index which puts it on top.

    Z- Index is really , really making me feel stupid.

    ( Wow ! Wait until PHP come up ! Lessons in HUmble 101 ))

    I think young Grasshopper that you have earned the pebble.
