Sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been quite busy with a huge project that I can hopefully show you in some weeks. And I can assure you Yuckfu isn’t dead either.
Another thing I finished up yesterday was my new portfolio. Not that I haven’t done any of these before, but this is one new! And fancy! Did I mention its new?
I also made sure that the print version from all major browsers looks good. The Hartija Css Print Framework is a great starting point for creating specialized print Style Sheets. I only had to tweak some values and remove elements, like the menu, that make no sense in print.

I recently finished work on tinyprice.de, an online community for exchanging coupon codes. The programming part was not a problem at all – just simple database I/O etc. – the layout however was quite a challenge.

textarea in a
fieldset AND a
div element, and everything works fine again:
<textarea style="width: 100%;" name="content"></textarea>
