Slow news day?

Apologies for not posting too much new material lately.

The web re-design project that I am currently working on is in full swing and taking up most of my time.

"No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality"

The NHL Stanley Cup finals ended last night Monday, with the Carolina Hurricanes seizing Lord Stanley's famed trophy after beating the Edmonton Oilers in 7 hard-fought games.

Coming from a huge hockey town as Montreal, I want to send my congratulations to the people of Raleigh and all fans of the Hurricanes - it was definitely a series filled with skill, talent, and lots of heart.

So rather than rant and rave over the fact that a Canadian team was unable to take home the Cup, I will, as that Panic! At the Disco song goes, "face these these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality."

Job Search: Technical Snafu Solved

A special thank you goes out to Jill Hurst-Wahl (blog: Digitization 101) who pointed out to me that the link I posted directing users to my resume was in reality sending folks to an error message web page rather than to my illustrious (read: humble) resume.

Seems like the hosting company I used changed its policies.

No fear. The experiment continues, now with help from Google Pages. Yes, Google. We cannot escape them.

For those interested, my resume is (for the time being) here.

The Web: CBC.ca redesign!

Browsing along the information highway in attempts to find more news on the 17 terror suspects arrested in Toronto early Saturday morning, I came across the new and improved CBC.ca website.

After 6 years, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation along with its French counterpart, Radio-Canada, have undergone a website face lift. Looks good. Fancier than before. But a little crowded.

See for yourself: CBC.ca or Radio-Canada.
