Thoughts on Web Development
Pixelated Brain and Tweaks Tuesday, August 31, 2004 4:33 PM
The PixelatedBrain is going live on Thursday. I'm a little nervous about things. Will the web server perform? Will the login process get swamped? Will the sessions time-out unexpectedly? I'll find out on thursday and friday.

More To Do's Saturday, August 28, 2004 2:37 PM
More things to do for the web site:

1) Cache rss feeds and/or output so they don't have be reloaded everytime.

2) Add bit fields to the blog database so you can find blog entries for category of things OR'ed together.

I like the new look Friday, August 27, 2004 3:40 PM
More of a zen-like quality to it. Now, all I have to do is get a little more content.

Article ideas:
1) Doing the menu items up top
2) ViewState - what is it good for
3) Security for subdirectories
4) Hosting services
5) SQL Injection attacks and ways to protect data

To do items:
1) Custom errors
2) Contact form which sends email
3) Allow html in blog input form for LimberTech - oops looks like I already did that :->.

New look, no lizard Friday, August 27, 2004 10:09 AM
I've been working on a new look for the web site these last couple of days. It seems that web sites are using smaller banners across the top of their page - Microsoft, Sun, Dell. I want most pages to fit on a 800x600 screen (maybe 1024x768), so I'm squeezing down the top graphic and getting rid of the lizard (gecko). I really kinda like the look of Asp.Net as opposed to GotDotNet. Both have great content but the asp.net site just seems cleaner. I've spent a lot of time looking at web sites and reading web site design books: HomePage Usability by Nielsen and Tahir, Designing Web Usability by Nielsen, and JavaScript+CSS+DOM magic by Itoh. I also look at some of the books by Robin Williams (not the comedian). In particular, Web Design Workshop by Williams, Tollett, and Rohr. Each of these books has contributed to the way I think a web site should be designed. The areas that I would still like to work on is less clutter, better navigation, and oh yeah, more content.

New office Tuesday, August 24, 2004 10:40 AM
After looking off and off for last couple of months, I found an office I can work out of that's close to home and reasonably priced. It even comes with covered parking. The office is a room in an older building in downtown Bellevue. It's about two miles from the house. I was just about ready to give up looking when I found it yesterday morning.

New router Wednesday, August 18, 2004 10:04 PM
I should probably know better but I've been running a router without wep enabled. LinkSys was running such a great deal on their wireless-g routers and adapter cards this week that I got one. I installed it today and enabled wep. I feel much more secure. In the installation process, I noticed that I could see another network from our house. It was a netgear network without wep enabled. hmmmm.

Web site update Wednesday, August 18, 2004 8:59 AM
I've decided that this web site needs revamping and more content. I'll be adding some new graphics and RSS feeds in the next week or so. I'll also make a point of updating the blog more often.

I've been working away on a new web site for Emily. Things are getting close to being completed. I still have to add the credit card piece and some minor tweaks.
