Joining 9rules

Everybody else is doing it and I wouldn't want to be left out. (Yes, I would jump off a bridge if everyone else did.) For those unfamiliar with 9rules, it is essentially a collection of well-written blogs (and yet they still let me in).

The value I hope this brings to the site is the increased audience that can foster greater, more thought-out discussion on the various web development topics that I normally post here. I also wish for it to drive me to generate more quality content for you. And that can only be a good thing!

I'd like to take this time to ask of you what you'd like to see more of on Is it more JavaScript, more CSS, or more links? Whatever it is, by all means, don't be shy.

Javascript, and info on your latest projects (like fontsmack).

Nathan Smith said on July 20, 2005

Welcome, you 9rookie! Not that I'm a veteran, but I did have you beat by a week. ;)

I'd like to see more JavaScript and CSS, and share anything on Rails as you learn it too. And, you still need to post your book-baton listing. I want to see what sort of programming books you got your expertise from.

Congratulations on your acceptance to the network.

I'd like to see more AJAX and Rails as Nathan has said above.

So you're joining Scrivs and the gang?

Congratulations, go kick some ass :)

Congratulations, and welcome to the network! (Or should that be th? network?)

This is a fresh and exciting design, but the horizontal scrollbar on 1024x768 is really bugging me.. :)

Also, while typing in this comment, I noticed that the textarea font size is a bit too small for my liking. Just a thought..

As for content, both Javascript and CSS articles sounds great. For my part, the JS bit has to be pretty basic, since I don't know a whole lot about it just yet.

Anyways, congratulations and good luck!

Olav: thanks for pointing out the 1024 scrollbar issue. I tweaked the design ever so slightly last night and obviously in the wrong direction. It should be fixed now.

First off, welcome to the network Jonathan! Secondly I will echo what Nathan said, I'd love to read more on Javascript and anything on Rails would be great.

Jonas Andersson said on July 20, 2005

Like many others I'd like to read some more of your JavaScript articles. And AJAX, yes please! More AJAX!

Welcome to the Network - keep up the good work.

Yannick L. said on July 20, 2005

More Javascript, CSS and AJAX.

Dan said on July 20, 2005

I would quite like to see some more Javascript trickery. But then again I would be happy with anything web design related that got chucked out :)

Sage Olson said on July 20, 2005

Javascript, definitely! :-) I think most "standards-aware" people are pretty comfortable with HTML and CSS, but most of us are sorely lacking in Javascript skills. So, more JS articles would definitely be appreciated.

Chris Lienert said on July 20, 2005

AJAX?! What does anyone need to know that's not already out there?

GainCMS is where my interest lies... The direction and decisions you've made with it have been excellent and it has been great to follow you through the process.

Congrats!! I heard about this site awhile ago but never had a chance to check it out. Cool stuff!

I'd like to see more entries about GainCMS. The series you have about Building a Web Application is real helpful. I am also working on some web apps of my own and its nice to read about what other developers are doing. I wonder if your using any remote scripting in that app.

Look out for some web projects I have in the works as well as some hardware stuff.

Good luck!!
