Graffiti CMS | User Entry
We're using Graffiti CMS as our CMS for Coders 4 Charities, a site that we built to spread the word about our charity event coming late April 2008. We needed to implement a registration page, so that developers and charities can register for the event. Graffiti is obviously very powerful and easy to use, but I had a hard time figuring out how to get user entry to work. Here is my fundamental understanding of how things kinda work: When you create a post, Graffiti will create a folder for your post, ......

We Are Microsoft | We Are Done!
We've finally launched all of the podcasts we recorded this weekend at the We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge Event in Dallas, Texas. Many thanks go out to Jeff Julian, Chris Koenig, Toi Wright, Amber Weiss and the folks at BravoTech, the huge team of developers that volunteered their time, and of course, all of the charities, who do the hard work day in and day out.

We Are Microsoft | Charity Challenge Weekend
This weekend, Jeff Julian and I have been given the privilege of recording podcasts at Microsoft's We Are Microsoft event, called the Charity Challenge Weekend. We are in Dallas, TX, the location of many wonderful things (light bulbs and elevators), most notably the extremely delicious Baja Burrito at Baja Fresh Mexican Cantina. I have to admit that I was not too aware of what this event was all about, but after learning, I quickly jumped in with both feet. The Charity Challenge Weekend is all about ......

Firefox and "inline-block" support
This may be old news for some, but Firefox v2.0 does not support the display style "inline-block". I've read several blogs and articles on the subject, most of them suggesting using "-moz-inline-block" or "-moz-inline-stack" or "-moz-inline-box", none of which worked (and also managed to break IE support, subsequently). Since I tend to fix my own problems (and quickly forget the solution when it creeps up again), I usually post a blog about it to remind myself in the future. In the event this blog ......
