new year – new flavour

Yeah, something changed here: I spent this day whit optimizing the design of this page. I still do not like the top part, especially the header image, so there will be even more changes in the next few days.

So whats going on? – Not much. I spent the last 2 weeks on redesigning some of my projects and some bug fixing on openKE. There will be soon much more rumors about this project of mine cause I will start to make some good voice for it and promote on several pages. There are still some features to implement and some security issiues to fix but i think of a launch very soon cause of possible competitors, although it still think it’s a unique idea!

Some new topics I am thinking on: mobile podcasting and mobile social networking. I’m planning to use some modules of the openKE application to build other community based plattform out of it. Some of my thoughts and future trends can be found here.

update page layout

I spent today working on a new layout for this blog here. Beasides I added the comment feature, for those people who want seriously to give feedback on what i talk about. I think the new design is quite good – maybe I’ll submit it at css remix
or any other design gallery. So, please give me some feedback on how u like the new layout!!

sIFR and XHTML validation

As some of you might have noticed, I am using the libary sIFR for some of the headlines here. sFIR is a real cool javascript libary that alose you to have stylish text headings. How it works? – It uses a Flash file instead of plain text to display nice text pasages. The problem with sFIR is somehow the XHTML validity which is not easy to establish.

I spent the last 1 1/2 hours to get this work and voila: now may page is XHTML/CSS valid. Despite the seriouse trouble when implementing i can recommend sFIR to you cause it’s and real cool alternativ to text heading images and save some bandwith of your web space.

update master thesis and new projects

As some of you might know: I wasn’t able to finish my master thesis in a satisfactory way by June. I am a little bit pissed off cause of that and I will be hopefully able to finish my study just in autumn. Cause of the free time I experience now and during the summer I will start many new web projects, which I at the beginning planned to start when I have finished my study.

The main new web project of mine will be a webdesign, webdev blog. I will create a fancy up-to-date CSS/XHTML design for the blog, which maybe will also take part in several css competitions or others. The topic of the blog will mainly be web design, web development, web standards, web marketing, and so on. It will not be one of these pseudo SEO and “I tell you how to earn a lot of money with your site” crap, but just straight forward tips und tricks from my personal point of view.

Now you will say, “ok, just one more of these type of blogs”. I don’t want to copy any of the existing “webmaster” and so on “guide blogs”, but try to make my own way. By the way: the blog will be in German language. Just look forward to it….

launch of site

Today if just started and finished the design of my new portfolio page. It is based on the blog system wordpress and a complete individual design. I left out the comment feature, cause of serious spam troubles i expierience in my other blogs and cause of the nature of this site. Maybe I will add the comment feature later…who knows.
