Great Success

Stikmen Graphic Design has just purchased and setup the domain http://www.stikmen.ca. How cool is that? Pretty darn cool.
I have set the domain up with Google Apps and am very very impressed with what is offered. I would recommend it for any company.

On the heels of the new domain, I have changed the location of this blog from http://stikmen.blogspot.com to http://blog.stikmen.ca. Fortunately Blogger is well prepared to deal with this and makes the transition seamlessly.

So far I have nothing to complain about except that Oh-My-God, it's 4AM! Why don't I sleep??

Microsoft + Support + Web Standards?

I never thought I would see those three things in a sentence together without all molecular motion ceasing.

Microsoft has decided to make the upcoming Internet Explorer 8 support Web Standards according to http://blog.wired.com/monkeybites/2008/03/microsoft-backs.html. Before we know it, the cows will come home and pigs will be flying around like airplanes!

This doesn't seem like much, but means a lot to web designers such as myself and my partner. Bringing Internet Explorer up to speed will mean less tedious work for us.
Currently web designing involves a process of converting perfectly compliant code into code which is both compliant and works in Internet Explorer. We're glad to see that this process will no longer be necessary.
