I’ve been working on a new footer for this site. For a while I’ve wanted a fat footer with more information. Today, you’ll see, I have one. It still needs a lot of work, but at least it’s there.
Areas for improvement:
- Remove the stupid 1px border
- Put in some social media icons
The other week we decided to send out a mass email to our cheerleading team in order to get information from each cheerleader. The problem was that we didn’t want to send sizing data about other cheerleaders. This meant a custom written emails for each cheerleader. We had an excel spreadsheet, I exported it to CSV and then wrote a ruby parser to generate custom email files for each cheerleader.
There is some room for improvement:
- Parameterize the inputs. Pass in the CSV, destination folder, a template file
- Use a template file for emails. Instead of manually including the message
This site is undergoing some changes.
Firstly, you may notice that I have changed the homepage to have a static home page. It allows me to introduce myself to people who may want to just find out who I am without forcing my current thoughts on them.
Secondly, I’m working on consolidating my Categories and reducing them. There are way too many. I’m going to keep putting information in the tags, but categories will probably start to shrink to a more reasonable number.
Thirdly, I’m hopefully going to start writing more again. I don’t know if it will be only on this site or across the web at all of my blogs (yes, I have too many).
Hope you enjoy the changes.
These are my links for April 23rd through April 24th:
