What's Been Going On?

Wow! I haven't written here for ages! It's not like I don't have anything to say either, I have some views and thoughts on reset style sheets, accessibility for the hearing impaired, microformats and the length of time it takes to load a site, but I just haven't had the time to update!

What have I been doing then? Well, my job has been keeping me busy and recently we have launched two new sites, River Island's Style Insider and Big Brother's Big Ears. Both were hard work and took a lot of effort from the whole team, but also include some of my first bits of Ruby on Rails. I'm quite proud of being part of the team that has set both these sites up.

I almost lost my iMac the other week too, ended up re-installing OS X and crossing my fingers hoping that I didn't lose all my data. Thankfully, it's all still here, but that was a heart attack I didn't need.

So what now? Well, I'm going to start posting again, starting with an update to my style sheet switcher. Why? Firstly, it's very old code, back from when I knew hardly anything about javascript (though it works, can't take that away)! Also, Smashing Magazine are having a style sheet switcher competition and I fancy entering that too, who wouldn't want the prize on offer? There's two weeks to enter, so I better get cracking.

In the meantime, if you do fancy keeping up with me off of the blog, I am on Twitter, so follow me!

Bye for now.
