To help me learn the ins and outs of blog template design and development, I think I'm going to design a new blog for myself. Kind of a fun little project, and once I'm done I think I'll be in a good place to tackle sharkforum.org.
I read up on PHP yesterday and it looks fairly straightforward. Also, my knowledge of unix is coming back to me much quicker than I would have imagined. Sweet.
(i didn't know I could talk to my mac with unix! That was kind of fun)
In any case, what I'm really going to have to go back and go over is css, which I'm pretty rusty with.... good thing it's not too difficult, as I recall.
