CSS By Dummies

I'd like to take this time to proudly announce my new book, "Cascading Style Sheets by Dummies". Details such as the release date are still a bit sketchy at this time, but I felt like now was the appropriate time to release this info. The "By Dummies" line is a sister series to the popular "For Dummies" books.

To kick off this new line of books, they found hacks like me, who really don't know what they are talking about. I'm very proud to be the first "By Dummies" author chosen to write about CSS. I hope you will all buy my book and enjoy reading it.

Wow, very cool, Ryan! I'll definitely be sure to check it out. Are you planning on writing any other books (further out in the future, of course)? I'd be interested in a JavaScript or JavaScript+CSS book coming from you (things like your faux borders for form elements). In any case, congratulations. :)

On a side note - you need to blog more often. ;)

That is pretty good. I mean, your good at April fools books. I kinda think you should write one each year!

I thought the April fools joke was that you were actually posting an entry! :)

That previous Entry header of "How long have you gone?" was really appropriate for a while there.

Just kidding - I'm sure you have been busy lately with something, though, right?

Yes, it was, of course, an April fool's joke. ;)

Chuck - lol... Yes, I've been very busy with work and life lately. I'm also working on a redesign of my business site, and hope to launch it as a part of May 1st Reboot.

Any new posts to be coming soon? It's been so long!
Also, what is the pop-up for acrobat reader that opens when I come to this site?

You had me for a few seconds - up until I saw the date of the post. Then I thought to myself, "no way." It's a good one though.

By the way, does anyone here have an extra gulp cap they can give me? I want to open a google gulp account.
