The blog is being migrated and merged with multiple Imphenzia blogs so the format and content will be inconsistent for a while.

New Splash Page

The new splash screen is now finished and operational, hope you like it! Note, you'll only see this if you are using a recent browser due to IE 6 and older (and maybe older versions of FireFox etc) will have huge problems rendering this page using quite modern transparent PNG files and CSS positioning. This whole browser compatibility thing is a nightmare to be honest so I'm not looking forward to it when redoing the music and games sites to follow the new look and design.

So what does it look like? Well, go to www.imphenzia.com and have a look if you have a modern browser - if you still see the white version, you'll need an upgrade.

Working on a new splash

Since the new blog is launched, I've spent some time working on a new updated splash screen for www.imphenzia.com that will feature 4 sections instead of the current two. These will be music and games that you all recognize from before, but also the forum and the new blog. I am also slowly learning how to create sites using CSS instead of traditional HTML. CSS is a great method to position page elements and get efficient code with different styles, but at the same time it is a bit of a headache due to browser compatibility as different browsers choose to interpret the code in different ways. One example is vertical alignment, it used to be a 1 row job in traditional HTML using tables, but in CSS there is about 30 lines of code and you still don't get a cross browser compatible result... when you google about this most people will blame IE, but regardless of who to blame I just want it to work :)

Once I've learned CSS a bit better I will also redo the music and the game sites to look more up to date as the design is getting quite dated. The new splash screen should be up and running soon. Now it's time to watch another episode of Life on Mars with my wife and a cup of tea.
