Improving Website Accessibility

I’ve been reading the 30 days to a more accessible web site to make improvements to my own site. One of the first things I did was to move the main content so it will load first. Since I had changed the columns to CSS from tables that was easiest to do. I made some other minor tweaks as well. The biggest problem is all the javascript used in the site. A lot of its in there so iBlog doesn’t have to reload the entire site ever time I make a change, it would be nice if there were another way. 

Day Trip To Santa Fe Photos

Today I took a trip to Santa Fe with my parents. There isn’t a whole lot there, for being the capital city of New Mexico. No high rises, just a small square in the middle of the city. A lot of artsy shops and Indian jewelry surround the square. It was pretty cold, under 40 degrees, so we didn’t stay long. Yeah yeah, 40 isn’t very cold compared to some places but it’s cold enough not to want to be in.

I’m having some problems with my Camera. Take the image titled “Looking tword the cathedral”, Images that are dark sometimes have some graininess to them. I also find that I get about 2-3 corrupt pictures. I don’t know if this is some problem with the memory card or the camera. There are a few images I took of the monument in the center of the square, where they removed the word savage describing the indians, that were corrupt.

There wasn’t any protesters in the plaza today but there were some along the way.

How Not to Get Fired Because of Your Blog

I think this is important because some bloggers just may not get it (regardless of what software you use). Especially the younger types. I don’t talk about my work here. My work photos stay at work. I will often start a blog at work, just as I surf. But only during lunch and break. Unfortunately i have to produce results so i really don’t have a lot of time for this during the day anyways.

Movie Style Freeway Shooting

This looks like it came from a move, but it happened on I-10 in Arizona. Very near where I use to live.“This appears to be a load of undocumented aliens that was being hijacked or kidnapped from another group of smugglers,” Pinal County Sheriff Roger Vanderpool said. “It was clearly retaliation and to send a message.” The smugglers who were attacked near Casa Grande had kidnapped the immigrants from the assailants in southern Pinal County, he said. The suspected shooters later caught up to the other group about 8:30 a.m. as the smugglers headed toward Phoenix in a two-vehicle convoy. They opened fire from a van, killing four and injuring five others. The two vehicles carried 24 people.” It left the freeway in a bottleneck for 9 hours. It all has to do with the trafficking of Illegal immigrants.
