First taste of HTML5 and CSS3

We have a day off today. Some people here celebrate the start of one of the biggest genocides in history. I’ve decided to spend today working in my ‘just for fun‘ stuff.¬†I’ve been reading a lot lately about HTML5 and CSS3 (follow Dion Almaer on Twitter to get the latest news), and I’ve been looking for a moment to start playing with those things.

I’ve deployed a new version of nuumber.com, a website I created a while ago to play with Google App Engine and SEO. I’ve used the flexible box model for the vertical positioning, the color gradients, and my favourite feature: The multicolumn layout. I’ve also used several new HTML5 tags such as nav and footer.

It seems that we are going to have a strong standard for the real semantic web. Bonus: I’m also using microformats to identify my breadcrumbs.

Warning: you should use a browser supporting HTML5 and CSS3 to surf the site (FF4, Chrome or Safari will do the trick).

By now, you must know that the answer to life the universe and everything is 42.

Bicing BarcelonaI’ve been migrating some old projects I haven’t been¬†maintaining for a while from my old Linode Xen server to my new OVH dedicated server. In case you missed them, check them out:

I’m keeping secret for a while two more surprises on the new server. Stay tuned during the following weeks.
