A couple of things about voting. First of all, my work colleague and carpool buddy, Sean McArdle, has a comic book project in the top three of Platinum Studios’ 2008 Comic Book Challenge. He’s made the jump from the Top 50 to the Top 10 thanks to the judges, and voters have put his project into the Top 3. Now it’s up to voters to choose the top entry, which will win, among other things, a publishing contract with Platinum – kind of like American Idol, only with super powers and wearing spandex. Wait a minute…
(Speaking of Idol and voting in this manner, I’ve never seen the logic in letting people cast as many ballots as their endurance allowed – especially since there’s technology to at least slow it way down. I suppose they went the easy route and decided if you can’t totally beat them, join them Oh, well.)
In the meantime, I’m done with the redesign of this site. When I made the flip to this current version, I said I had been in a mood when I came up the the previous design. Well, I must have been in a mood when I did this one, too. Have you looked at it lately? Manila folders with red Dynamo labels, indeed.
Anyway, the new design is a lot cleaner and uses some tricksy CSS technology to display the data. I’m happy with it, and I think I’ll work until I change my mind again. So far, that happens about once a year or less.
Look for the redesign to launch on September 3rd, in conjunction with… something else.
I’m also in the process of compiling a to-do list that I thought I would post here. Long-time readers know that I do this from time to time to push myself to get things done. It’s no quite ready, but I’ll get it posted soon, I hope.
But don’t look for immediate progress when the list goes up. I’m a little busy until after the first Tuesday in November:
