Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas! I vote for Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas to replace “Happy Holidays”. I thought this was very appropriate in the blogging world we hang out in, since it is such an anonymous and yet vastly diverse community where skin, age, height, sex, sexual preference, weight, ethnicity, race, creed, acne, beauty, culture, and nationality mean nothing. Ramahanukwanzaamas […]

He knows nothing of web standards, tableless web page design, or any modern techniques or technologies. He knows 1999 HTML and CSS 101 […]
