A Few of My Favorite Things

There are those (rare) occasions when I absolutely love something.

Book Review:
Securing ExpressionEngine 2
I must admit up-front that this review is waaaaaaay overdue. It has been on my to-do list for months. But I have a good reason for the delay … or rather a reason … I didn't just want to say that Mijingo and Mark Huot put together a great resource with the Securing ExpressionEngine 2 how-to booklet. Of course, it's a fantastic resource. No one would expect anything less from Ryan Irelan (the man behind Mijingo) or Mark. I didn't…
Book Review:
Building an ExpressionEngine 2 Site for Small Business
I always figured I'd post book reviews here. I just haven't. In fact, thinking about it, I don't think I've ever actually written a book review. No better time to start than now. And no better book to start with than Michael Boyink's Building an ExpressionEngine 2 Site for Small Business But first, a disclaimer: I know Mike personally and professionally, I've taken one of his training classes, and I was one of the "early reviewers" of the book. I…
How Do I Love Thee
Three years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my life. I sold my house in Bowie, Maryland, hired movers, packed my cats in my car and proceeded to drive across the country to my new home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Suck It
The Bad: Eureka 2900 I have a shedding problem. No, not me. My two cats. While I've gotten things under control, cat hair is still a nuisance. A large part of the problem is I have a shitty vacuum cleaner. My Eureka 2900 sucks … and not in the good way. And it is a pain in the ass for vacuuming my hardwood laminate floors. It has a "bare floors" setting, but it simply doesn't do the job. I've been…
The Best $40 I Ever Spent
I love my two cats, Guinness and Jersey. Yet there is one thing I hate about having cats: the shedding. Guinness' shedding is particularly bad. While she's a short-haired cat, she has an undercoat that leaves behind clumps of hair everywhere she goes. From the day I brought her home almost 12 years ago, I have had to brush her every day. Still, the shedding was a problem. And I end up having to vacuum every day because I can't…

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
