“Responsive” Email

i guess it really shouldn’t be called “responsive” — it’s more “adaptive”. i mean, you can’t resize your browser or outlook window and expect it to update on the fly.


i’d like to say i’m pretty good at coding up html pages with css… and getting better and better at making sites responsive. well, only some of those skills are needed to code html emails

BumPal, Bummo

i had this idea that was cool, “game-changing” (ughh), etc. but it woulda taken way too many resources for me to execute by myself

i’m so sore (or as greg would say, “soar”)… two flights of stairs, heavy boxes, big furniture, and probably the hottest weekend san diego’s had this summer. i can’t thank geoff, mexi-ray, josh, and even amanda for coming out to help — they definitely made the move much quicker and more efficient
