Now that I’m pro with CSS…

This website is the first site I ever designed with CSS. That’s why it’s simple.

Since the creation of this website, I have designed a few others, and have gotten pretty good with CSS. Because of this, I’ve been considering maybe redesigning ReviewDesk.com. The only problem with this is time.

You’re probably wondering, “If you’re such a pro at CSS, then why does it take you so much time?” The short answer is: cross-browser compatibility. CSS is rendered differently in different aspects on all the different browsers out there. It sucks. I can make a sweet design that looks super awesome in Firefox in 1-2 days, in my spare time. But then guess what happens when I look at it in Internet Explorer or perhaps even Opera? It looks all stupid.

So, let’s see. Maybe if I can get the motivation to write a few more reviews, I’ll go ahead and take the leap and make a new design. I want to write reviews, I really do, but I’m so busy. It sucks.

So, StarCraft 2 should be pretty sweet..

I will admit it, I love StarCraft. For a game that came out in 1998, it’s really awesome. Even if it was just made last year, it’s still awesome. It’s a timeless classic, really. I might even go as far as saying it’s the best game ever.

So, if it’s the best game ever, I would imagine that it’s going to be pretty difficult for it to be BETTER than the first one. Really, though, if it’s just like the first one, but with better graphics and new units, I would be pretty happy. And from the screen shots located here, it looks like it’s going to be very similar.

One of the best features of StarCraft is the ability to easily create maps, and the “Use Map Settings” aspect of the game. Yeah, fighting an opponent the way the game intended you to is cool, but sometimes you just want to chill out and play some Sunken D or V-Tec Paintball, ya know? I hope the new one will have similar features. What would be REALLY cool is if you could play old SC maps in SC2. That would be amazing. Especially with the fancy new graphics.

I’m pretty happy that StarCraft 2 is supposed to come out sometime this year, and I hope that it does. I really look forward to it.
