Opening night for Constant Wife!

Tonight is opening night for The Constant Wife. I can't wait for it to be done, so that I can get my life back... I've been so tired all week. Bleh.

CSS victory

Okay, so the oft-discussed ACT 1 website... I fixed the CSS problem I was having.

Quick recap: I've redone the site with a CSS-only layout, but was having a problem getting the line down the center to appear properly. Currently, the effect is done with a 1px border on the opposing table cells. When floating the two content areas (one on the left for pictures, one on the right for the content), the background image didn't extend any further than a non-floated box.

Well! When working on a completely different project (actually, I was working on a proposal for one site, and thinking about a totally different one that never went anywhere), I realized the solution: put the non-floated footer <div> into the same box as the two content areas. This would force the background to go all the way to the footer, thereby maintaining the look of the table-based layout with none of the drawbacks.

I'm quite pleased that I've finally gotten this sorted out (the last sudden "aha, this will do it!" solution didn't work at all, so this was a nice change of pace). Unfortunately, I'm hella busy at work with other web stuff, between the site I was writing the estimate for (which will probably come my way) and a redesign of our company website, so launching the overhauled website won't happen for at least another month or two.

Grindhouse

Go see it Friday when it comes out. I just came back from an advance screening, and absolutely loved it.

I liked Planet Terror more than Death Proof, but I also have a soft spot in my heart for zombies (trivia: I wrote the vast majority of the Zombie Survival Guide Wikipedia article).

Also, the films are absolutely hilarious, as are the trailers. Werewolf Women of the S.S.? Hell yes, sign me up. :)

Been awfully dull around here...

No, I'm not ignoring the blog again; I just haven't had anything to say. Not only has very little of interest been happening lately (unless you want to hear about every little thing I do), I've been exceedingly depressed about my split with Molly, which certainly doesn't fill me with energy to sit and spit out stories (and I'm not emo enough to use my blog to talk about every little feeling I have).

So... that's all for now.
