The Monday(s)

Stuff for today…

  • The Web group has been doing a “refresh” of the College of Charleston homepage over the last month. That culminated with its launch today. It was nice taking a site that was done in a tabled layout and literally chopping about 500 lines of HTML off. I didn’t necessarily design it — the look was mocked up by the Marketing department, and I brought it to life in code. Needless to say, we’re thrilled that it’s up. It’s the first major work that’s been done on the homepage in several years. Take a look!
  • The Subway on King Street finally reopened a few days ago, and I went there for lunch today. It looks great inside. I haven’t had Subway since my Atlanta trip in February because it just wasn’t convenient. I’m so happy it’s back.
  • I’m now watching Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel. My housemates have me hooked. It’s nice that I have a laptop, too, so I’m able to watch it while blogging. This show — specifically, Bear, the guy who parachutes into the forest with little more than a knife — is insane.
  • This weekend, Tom had his BlackJack switch back and forth into 3G mode, specifically after he booted his phone up. I have rebooted my phone like a madman, hoping to cash in on some accidental New AT&T 3G goodness, to no avail. This is a good sign though — is a 3G launch in Charleston imminent? If so, I will feel 100% justified in eschewing a Blackberry in favor of the BlackJack. C’mon AT&T, just flip the switch…

Today was a high value Monday — here’s hoping Tuesday is similar…

    I’ve been watching Man v. Wild lately too. Once ‘Deadliest Catch’ is out of reruns I’ll be addicted to it again. As far as Man v. Wild – the dude is clearly insane. I think the drinking his urine on the Australian outback definitely cemented his insane status.
