'Tis A Beginning

I thought the best way to start out was with some kind of introduction. (Besides it allows me a short delay in deciding which issue I want to write about first. wink )

Many of you know me as Kravvitz, while others know me as Kravimir. I originally picked the name "Kravitz" because I heard it on the classic TV show "Bewitched". Unfortunately it was already taken as an AOL screenname, so I added the second "v". So many years later I've gotten tired of people not spelling it the way I do. Hence the name "Kravimir". Unfortunately, changing one's screenname on dozens of sites is not an easy task. Therefore, I haven't changed it on sites I'm already a member of yet, but am using Kravimir when I join new ones.

This is not a site about graphical web design as some people seem to think. Here I endeavor to instruct people in how to use good techniques to turn designs into actual web pages. That's not how I would normally describe it, but I think it is an accurate description. This site's graphical design is simple. Why? Because I did it myself and I'm a web programmer, not a graphical web desginer. If you would like to create a new design for me based on the current one, I would love to take a look at it.

So I'd like to thank the guys who helped me work out many kinks from this blog system. Thanks for your help and I hope you'll stick around and read some of my entries as I post 'em.


Looking forward

As a relative beginner to CSS and co, I've really enjoyed learning from your forum posts and your site. So I'm also looking forward to your blog posts! I'll be here...

Thanks for the bio too. I've always wondered about your 'name'. Never would have picked Bewitched as the source. Wasn't that the name of the nosy old neighbor? Does this tell us something about you?!

It's fun being anonymous on the web, but I have mixed feelings about it. My username is basically a spelling out of my initials—RM—although I might have better spelled it Aarem if I'd been thinking straight. I was forced to do this when I signed up at SitePoint anyway, as 'Arem' was already taken.

If you make some good posts, I'll link to you from my own new WordPress blog!

Good luck!

Very nice

You have outdone yourself, Kravvitz. I love it. Good luck with the content, Kravvitz/Kravitz/Kravimir wink

Looking good

I am not exactly a beginner in CSS, so this site has been great. You should do a peice on selectors. They are so useful!

So which should I call you on the forum? Kravitz, or Kravimir? Just curious, what's your real name in life?

Overall: Nice site Kravitz. I just wish you updated it 3 times a day tongue
