The Best Pure CSS Navigation Menu
First up I must apologise for my lack of blog activity over the past month or so but I have been very busy at work and then holidays over the new year and more recently working on a website, enough excuses, here is one for you web-designers out there.
For the past few months I have been building a website for my local flying club and after about three complete overhauls until I was happy with the layout I have come up with this. The cool part about it is the navigation which works in all browsers consistently and is very clean and easy to implement. Normally it would take me ages and cost me a lot of my sanity to write something like that (I am very impatient with coding). Continue reading “The Best Pure CSS Navigation Menu”

I’ve just installed WordPress and decided to begin my very own Blog. So the big question is, why did I decide to write a blog in the first place?
Well, there is no single answer but I will mention a few things that inspired me. The first and probably the primary reason is that I seem to have a lot of spare time! Most of this time is spent doing a lot of non-constructive things like watching TV or playing the X-Box 360 (I am playing Modern Warfare 2 at the moment).
Secondly, I thought it might make for an interesting social experiment, to see how many (or how little) people are actually interested in what I have to say.
Thirdly, I currently work a very boring job which generally involves me sitting in front of a computer trying to look busy for eight and a half hours a day, Monday to Friday. There are occassional moments of excitement but in this time I have read a lot of other blogs, spent a lot of time on YouTube and I am continually discovering new and interesting things from all around the internet that I think are worth sharing. A lot of the time it is harder trying to look busy than it is to be actually doing work! So hopefully this will give me a good chance to pass the time when there is absolutely nothing to be done at work. Continue reading “Hello world!”
