Welcome. This website is where I experiment with CSS, the Ruby programming language, and web-related technologies. This site is a sinatra app. The markup is HTML5, so if this page looks a little screwy it's probably because your browser doesn't support the tags I'm using. If it looks really screwy you're probably using Internet Explorer (because you like the web to look screwy?--in that case, you're welcome).

My latest experiment is the vertical nav you see on the left (no images!). Yeah, I cheated a little with the browser-specific transforms, but eventually the browsers will catch up and it will be standard--you can even do the transform in IE:

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3);

I update my ruby syntax highlighting "brush" here. I think it is an improvement over the original.

I created a colloquy style that I think turned out pretty well. You can find it here.

My previous github account is here.

This is hosted on a free Heroku account, so I figure they deserve some free advertising.

If you'd like to see the code for this page, view the source and you'll see it in the html comment at the bottom.

I use the username phaedryx online.
