Top Ten Reasons To Learn CSS

By all that is holy, if you work on webpages, and you haven’t learned CSS, then maybe this will wake you up to the revolution of streamlined web design: Design Industry Interviews — Sessions.edu. Here’s a couple of reasons to get you started:

  • Faster download times. Reduction of file size is about 50% less than a Web page built with traditional Web design methods.
  • Shorter development time. Easily tweak the design of a thousand-page site with just a few edits of one CSS file.

If these reasons aren’t enough, then maybe you should reconsider your priorities. Trust me, it’s worth it.


FeedDemon RSS NewsReader

The FeedDemon Beta Site has a downloadable version of their new RSS newsreader. If you’re like me, you browse tons of sites everyday for news and updates. This program really makes it easy to get all your news in one place, and since most sites support RSS, you can easily add them to your newsreader. This site offers a news feed, which you can access by clicking the Syndicate link to the right under the Site menu. The interface is really excellent; similar to Microsoft’s Outlook 2003. Two big toes up from me.


In Other News…

Well the Florida Marlins won the World Series, and the celebration begins here in Florida. It’s pretty impressive, considering the team was created in 1993, and already they have won 2 World Series in the franchise’s life. I imagine a lot of bets were lost tonight, as Analysts and baseball enthusiasts all felt the Yankees would clobber them. Which only disproves the theory that the Yankees $180 million budget isn’t so superior to the Marlins $58 million budget, nor can it buy runs off a 23-year old pitcher. Money does not buy titles and championships, passion does. That’s the groundrule to any sport, or life in general. Congrats to the Marlins!

Also, iTunes for Windows has a new update that Apple has posted last night to fix some problems some PC users experienced. There’s a story up on CNN with details on it (since Apple didn’t release any details on the update).
