Being constant tinkerer that I am, I have a new (old) project in the pipelines! Im actually revisiting an older project of mine that fell by the way-side to make room for constant gaming and neglect of wanting to actually do anything. It all started when I ordered some books from a site that I like and actually read them instead of leaving them sitting on my shelf for a change. And so it begins, in an effort to prove to myself that I can read a book and really learn from what it has to say, BuildFunStuff v2 is in the works. The project is going to consist of the following milestone goals…
- Designing a custom theme for wordpress that is HTML 4.01 Strict compliant.
- Writing a full, comprehensive legal disclaimer
- Writing an accessibility statement
- Writing a number of fun projects you can build at home with minimal tools
- Integrating wordpress with Google Adsense
- Integrating wordpress with Twitter
- Making a few short video’s to advertise the site and its projects
Of course, not all of these milestones are going to be in the order they are listed in here, in fact the disclaimer has been drafted and is awaiting review. Even the accessability statement is a work in progress, of course the statement cant be finalised until the theme is comlete because who knows what type of whacky accessability stuff I’m going to integrate into it. The theme is most likely going to be based off the 160gs CSS system as I think that would be a useful learning exercise. The projects can all be done in the background as Im working on the rest of the bits and pieces, all in all at present, I’d say I have around 10% of the total work drafted… which really means around 0% of it done since its all going to have to be re-visited… but hey, you have to start somewhere dont you?
Anyway, thats enough jibber jabber for now…
