Lack of personality is a problem, indeed…

February 27, 2011, 2:38 PM

You may remember the site design concept that I tossed around about a week ago. It used a three-column layout, and significantly changed the above-the-fold look of Schumin Web.

Since I doodled out a site layout with a Sharpie, I did go ahead and produce that hand-drawn concept using CSS, in order to see how it would look when built. Here’s version one:

How many Scientologists does it take to fix a roof?

February 27, 2011, 12:23 AM

It could start out a particularly bad joke, but the question still is, “How many cult members does it take to fix a roof?” Well, it turns out that the answer is nine. Here’s how it breaks down:

One to fix it...
One to fix it…

So how would you react to a Schumin Web that looked something like this?

February 18, 2011, 11:15 PM

In my quest to reinvent how Schumin Web looks and ultimately port it all over to the WordPress platform, I did some doodling this evening and came up with a design concept:

I didn’t realize how much I depended on my watch until it was gone…

February 14, 2011, 10:27 PM

So these last two days were a bit difficult for me. See, my watch fell apart on Saturday evening. Now mind you, I kind of knew that it was getting ready to go, because in January, the band started to rip, having torn about halfway through. At that time, I decided to make some emergency repairs:

With the president of Egypt gone, the people rejoiced.

February 12, 2011, 11:51 PM

It’s been all over the news by now, of course, but the reign of (now former) Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has come to an end. And as it turns out, my prediction was spot on. Back on February 1, Nicole Sandler tweeted this:

Does anyone really think the #Egyptians will allow Mubarak to stay in power until Sept elections? Me neither

I retweeted Nicole Sandler’s tweet, and then replied:

@nicolesandler Honestly, I doubt that Mubarak even lasts two weeks, let alone until September. #egypt

I said less than two weeks, and ten days later, he abdicated. It was one of those things, I believe, that we all knew was coming but were surprised to see actually happen.

So Schumin Web turns fifteen in a month and a half. How to celebrate…

February 4, 2011, 9:58 PM

Believe it or not, on March 23 of this year, Schumin Web turns fifteen. I think I’ve been tossing around ideas in my head about how to properly celebrate the fifteenth anniversary since the fourteenth anniversary last year. And unfortunately, I’m still at a bit of a loss about what to do for it. I’ve thought of a few things that have been through various levels of experimentation, but nothing really workable came out of it.

First of all, does anyone remember the tenth anniversary celebration? The Photo Feature was changed to this graphic:

The Schumin Web celebrates ten years on the Internet on March 23, 2006.
