And now, for your viewing pleasure…
Welcome to the new incarnation of Minh’s Notes! This website is still – yes, still – under construction. Various pages and templates have yet to be put up, and I am putting the final touches on them. I’m not going to put a timetable for this redesign again, since I know I’ll break it (miserably) again. It took over a year to get this far, so I guess you’ll have to bear with me some more.
At least the comments are automatic now, right?
Just some notes on how I got this far:
- Unlike any of the other website designs I’ve made over the years, I didn’t sketch this one out first – well, not the design you see here, at least (I’m saving the design I sketched out for the next time I have to redesign). I created this design entirely in Microsoft Publisher 2000. But before you call me insane, I used only the design here, and coded the website’s templates, etc. by hand.
- You may think the color scheme is a bit dull. I think it rather suits my personality, and those who know me personally (lucky you) would agree wholeheartedly.
- If you’re not using a browser that actually supports web standards (as opposed to just saying it does), such as Mozilla Firefox, you’re going to be missing out on some nice features that I’ll roll out soon. You’re already missing out on a couple nice touches.
- I know, I know, the site’s not standards-compliant. I’ll get to that when I have time. It took me this long to get where I am; it’ll take me longer to weed out some of that invalid code – such as one involving a possible bug in Movable Type, the CMS that I’m (still) using to manage my blog.
- I’ve got the entries from In the Meantime ready to migrate over here. I’ll do that, again, when I can.
There’ll be more things to note as I think of them.
