Gentlemen, if you are taking your lady out on a Friday night, please go to more effort than cheap board shorts and thongs. Thank you.

I see a hipster but I have no knife.

Oh, so many suggestions! I’ll compile a list and blog ‘em tomorrow. Ta!

I am done in Potts Point. I need a word to replace “Kiwified”, one that implies something Germanic.

RT @helime If you feel like a bit of light reading comparing tenancy laws around Australia: http://tinyurl.com/4vmzt…. Fun times. [Ta.]

Sniffy dogs are expensive, @jasonlangenauer. Search for my name at newscientist.com, I rolled the costs there a while back.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Yes, I flew direct to SFO.

Newtown station full of police with sniffy sniffy dogs. Again. Nice day for it, I suppose. If it were value for money. Which it’s not.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Kings Cross station; 1700 Potts Point for back repair; loose in Sydney on a Friday evening.

And… I’ve just successfully pitched said op-ed piece on NSW rental laws to an editor. I daresay it’ll appear some time next week.

via TweetDeck

@infoholic I’ll save going on about the laws until when I write the piece. I’m in too good a mood this afternoon to start down that path.

via TweetDeck in reply to infoholic

The new NSW rental laws are interesting, @neerav, yes. Thinking of writing an op-ed on the lack of balance. http://j.mp/eUkg7n

My God. The template works. And I understand why it works. I think I need a Victory Gin! And yes, I’m aware of the literary reference.

via TweetDeck

Also, you know how I said just before that I understood how these tables fit together? Forget that bit. I was mistaken.

via TweetDeck

Yes @purserj @smperris @yeebok it really is tables all the way down. Thank you for playing.

via TweetDeck

@imtimhanlon I just have to understand how it fits together so I can create replicating sections for @CampaignMonitor.

via TweetDeck in reply to timhnln

@imtimhanlon It’s email not web, so replicating the design would mean another round of email client testing. The tables at least “work”.

via TweetDeck in reply to timhnln

OMFG I HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW ALL THESE TABLES NEST ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THROUGH ALL SIX LEVELS!!!1!!111!!

via TweetDeck

My God! A vertical stack of three perfectly ordinary paragraphs has been coded as a little table with three rows, one per paragraph.

via TweetDeck

@bbedit Hah! Thought you’d be watching. ;) Now, a feature request: A button marked “Slaughter designer who used Dreamweaver…”

via TweetDeck in reply to bbedit

Thank you, BBEdit, for helping me unravel this code and strip out some of the worst excesses of awfulness.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @expectproblems, http://www.csszengarden…. is an eye-opener. Every web “designer” should look.

via TweetDeck

I don’t go for “tables = bad” zealotry. Sometimes it’s a quick path to a simple cross-platform result. But… Jesus wept, Dreamweaver!

via TweetDeck

RT @chrisjrn: Modern web developers use spacer.png. [I’m sorry, you’re quite right there, Chris.]

via TweetDeck

I am fairly sure that putting a space before the non-breaking space HTML entity will not achieve your aim.

via TweetDeck

I think layouts should always be finessed with a few <br /> tags and rows of spacer.gif, don’t you?

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: It’s l33t obfuscation to cut down on bit transfer & save $$$. Also stops teh nasty noob H4X0Rs stealing leading design. [!]

via TweetDeck

Tables. Nested tables. Rowspan. Excellent. I love you, Dreamweaver.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, it’s so incredibly helpful having styles called “style6” etc, is it not? It makes is so easy to figure out what’s going on.

via TweetDeck

So, this email design that I’m turning into a @CampaignMonitor template. It was done in Dreamweaver. But the code isn’t entirely shit.

via TweetDeck

RT @KarlskiB: It’s only a matter of time before someone makes an outdoor Roomba. [With an old V8 engine in it, I hope.]

Beyond the leaf blower? The carwash café, says @gregorstronach. True. And @vealmince has found this annoyance. http://bit.ly/gmBr8J Wonders!

via TweetDeck

@gkolenc I’m doing fine thanks, Glen. Everyone, including your team, has been fantastic.

via TweetDeck in reply to gkolenc

The two-stroke leaf blower has to be one of the top symbols of laziness there’s ever been.

via TweetDeck

@CollectiveAct Ah no I meant your call to get a story up on homelessness. If you can email your contact details we can do this off Twitter.

via TweetDeck in reply to CollectiveAct

It’s not just keeping busy to stay well, @justjjoke! I have a serious backlog of things to do and billable hours to clock up.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Catch up on comms; create email template for client; lunch & errands; plan “Patch Monday”; Potts Point to fix back; dinner.

via TweetDeck

@Bafflegabble Thanks very much, much appreciated.

via TweetDeck

I’m fine thanks, @Bafflegabble, seriously I just need to get on with today. Yesterday was difficult, but I’m further down the process now.

via TweetDeck

Apollo, @Bafflegabble? He’s big, noisy, demanding and irritating, so everything’s pretty normal there. No need to worry about him.
