I’ve spent most of this weekend glued to the computer. Unfortunately for you, this does not mean I made the time to write something interesting down here. Here is what went on instead.

Starting with little more than the following drawing,

A website outline

I’ve initiated a process of bringing my work web-site out of the dark ages.

The evolving work web site

Clicking the image above will take you to an evolving site where I test different elements which frequent my work web-site. The plan is to make sure it looks presentable in recent browsers before I migrate the older content over.

I think I’ve captured the essence of the original site quite nicely. What do you feel?

This is a printer-friendly version of the journal entry “Web two-point-oh” from actuality.log. Visit http://emphaticallystatic.org/earlier/web-two-point-oh/ to read the original entry and follow any responses to it.

    I really like the simplicity. I would love to use it if you ever release it.

    It will end up on oswd as soon as “it’s done.”

    As in, after I play enough with it and make sure it looks similar, and pretty, on major browsers.

    Are those eps files being rendered when I click on the first image in your research page[1]?

    No, they’re just regular links to PNGs. Or I don’t understand the question.

    That’s alright. They somehow looked like eps graphs to me when I saw them on the slideshow. I don’t remember why. Anyways, never mind. They look great. Good job!

    The plots, originally generated by GNU Plot or whatever, were written out as EPS files. What you are seeing on that page however are not rendered from them in real time or anything; they’re just suitably-sized PNG files created from those EPS originals.
