Mmm, XHTML

Reviewed domain settings and a web design course sparks a creative streak.

I like making websites. I don’t know why I don’t put more time into it. Probably because I rarely have something useful to make. But now I might have two things coming up where I could use my (somewhat limited) skill set!

To top it off I’ve started my web design course. It’s at a very rudimentary level and so far I’ve done a fourth of the assignments in less than one day without actually learning anything, but that’ll probably come soon. It’s nice to have school work motivating you to spend time on something you like.

Saying that I haven’t learned anything might be a misnomer though. While I haven’t learned anything so far in the study plan I looked up what XHTML actually is only to find out that it’s what I’ve been doing so far anyway, almost. Pretty sweet, since it’s all about how you write the code to make it easier to decipher, and not just for the computer to read.

In the spirit of all this did some fiddling with my domain name. No longer is the adress to this site http://kroax.blogspot.com (even if it does refer to this site) but instead you’re able to just type in http://blog.kroax.se! For most people this won’t mean a thing, but I’m having fun with it. At the moment www.kroax.se works as well, but that’s only temporary until I get something else up there again. Soon I’ll have access to Kroax.net and then I might change that, but http://blog.kroax.se will always work.

I feel delightfully nerdy right now!

Edit: Why, oh why does Blogger add line breaks automaticly in “Edit Html” mode?!

Edit2: Got access to Kroax.net now and moved it over here.

iPhones aren’t meant for continued typing

A realisation about handheld technology comes after a perhaps uninteresting but pleasant weekend.

So the weekend was nice, if a bit stressful at times. Watched a movie at the cinema and had not one, but two gatherings at home! For me, that’s a lot. Sure, there weren’t more than 7 people at once but it’s probably good that they weren’t all there at once.That’s pretty much been my whole weekend. I logged in a short while for some WoW to kill some turkeys and played some more Dragon Age. Right now I’m mostly looking forward to starting my web design course this week and I’ve been working on a side project of mine in hopes of getting it going.

Most of this I’ve been writing on my iPhone. However, I’ve yet to find a decent app that actually works the way I want. I’d like to just write something down, save it as a draft and then edit it later on the computer. Apparently this isn’t possible, so I have to publish it first and then edit it. That’s ridiculous. Well, at least I had something to do on my break at work today, but I believe that blogging on a computer is vastly superior unless it’s very small posts or micro blogging.

Now I’m gonna do some webdesigning!
