Back At It

Monday, February 2, 2004 at 8:55 am | Comments off

Arriving home on Friday, I was welcomed back by the MyDoom virus. Needless to say, my inbox was extra-full - not appreciated after being gone for a week and having to wade through the normal amounts of spam. (Did I just say 'normal' and 'spam' in the same sentence? It's an unfortunate sign of the times, eh?)

Getting back into the swing of things, I've got a lot going on. I'm working on xBlogPro, which I plan to release as a beta on this site soon. It has a much nicer administrative section, as well as some added benefits for the readers. I think you're going to like the additions. I'm also in the process of re-designing my business site, switching from the hybrid layout to an all CSS layout. I'm still working on the mockup for it, so it'll be a while yet, but I will say that I'm happy with the way it's coming so far. Lastly, I've got a few articles I'm writing/planning to write, including one on my negative margin solution to a problem Dave Shea was experiencing, which gave me the perfect opportunity to try out a new (to my knowledge) concept I had been kicking around. It seems it worked like a charm.

If your looking to take back your inbox from the spammers and you are running Windows, I can heartily recommend the K9 Spam Filter ( http://keir.net/k9.html ).

I have no connection with the coders - I'm just a happy end-user.

I love your negative margin solution! I used it on my own site, but made a few changes (such as two stacked "rows" and a fixed width layout). I also added some CSS to the left container (overflow: none) to prevent the right container from getting bumped down the page if a child was too wide. Although the URL for Dave's original post is in the CSS, I'm adding an FAQ section on the design, with links (and thanks) to you.

Scratch that ... I meant overflow: hidden (not none).
