Regents week begins tomorrow. For half the kids in my school it means torture, mental anguish, and suicidal thoughts. For the other half “Regents Week” translates to “Vacation.” Luckily, I don’t have any regents until June. And those are the English and American History regents, which I don’t even consider as threats.
Tomorrow, I start my job hunt. While the recession may have caused massive layoffs throughout almost every industry, cheap workers are always needed. That’s where I come in. I have no idea where to get started, though.
In browser news, Stainless will be developed as a full browser due to its popularity. It’s a Mac OS X Leopard-only browser, but it works quite like Chrome, with tab processes, Webkit, and private browsing. Once bookmarking and history are added in, it’ll become a viable browser. Another plus is Stainless’ more up-to-date Webkit engine, which gives better CSS3 performance. Maybe Google will decide to save some time and just buy out Stainless instead of porting Chrome…
Ars Technica has gotten a complete redesign as well as a complete backend overhaul. They’ve moved from a custom backend system to Movable Type. The new design is a bit darker, but it incorporates more Ajax and loads faster. What I really like is that they finally added some feedback to all the links and buttons. The previous version felt too static, with no hover effects at all.
And before I forget, Happy Chinese New Year to all those who celebrate it!
