My head in CSS and usability

What's up with me these days?

  1. I am doing paid work on a Shopify site. I had to quickly learn a new template language called Liquid. Liquid was created for Shopify, but is also being used in other Ruby on Rails web applications. Somewhat limited language (no math, not much in terms of string manipulation), but it is elegant.
  2. I am reading the very enthralling and useful book Designing the Moment by Robert Hoekman Jr.

Tu me manques

I dreamt about you this morning. You were back and I was touching you. I remember that you were not safe in the dream, and you were very sick. It's crazy but I am still crying now, I still miss you. My life is difficult now, I long for contact with you. Just hanging out with you. Oh, Bouboule j't'aime tellement, et puis c'est tellement froid la vie depuis que t'es parti. Les gens me font peur.

Je vais enterrer Bouboule

I am going to bury you, sweetheart. I will add a blankie in your little box. I miss you already. You taught me so much, I am so afraid to forget you, almost as afraid as I am to forget what you taught me. It did not feel like you were dead in my arms, last night. Read more →

Get ready for an educational program

After a restless night, I finally was able to get some sleep this morning. And this is what I experienced. That I can make up a dream so utterly cruel is beyond comprehension. Read more →
