The final countdown

I was checking out Aaron‘s site (again, I’ve never met/spoken to the guy, but it’s netiquette to call folk by their first name when you’re linking to them! ;o)) and found his DHTML “ypmenus”. They are well cool and very easy to implement too, for someone who doesn’t mind getting their hands a little dirty with the code.

Almost makes me wish I’d kept up the DHTML tinkering instead of deciding to wait until there was decent cross browser support for the DOM and CSS. Granted, when that day comes it would be nice to hit the ground running, but for the moment I have bigger fish to fry in the shape of the Intranet at work.

It’s up on the server now and other than a small fright caused by an old version of php, it seems to be working pretty well. Some nice people are testing the CMS over the next couple of days and hopefully they wont find much wrong with it. Then it will be all systems go – wahey!

I really want this to be a good project – mostly for me, because I haven’t really produced anything of note so far, and partly for my boss for having the faith in me in the first place. There’s also the fact that I’ve done some Very Cool Stuff ™ behind the scenes with this Intranet and I just want to see how it floats.

Fingers crossed over the next few days.
