It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.
Title: More coding... Posted: January 08, 2010 (06:27 AM)
Because I apparently hate myself, I went ahead and spent the last 10 or so hours doing almost nothing but coding. It was mind-numbing work, predictably, but I'm reasonably happy with the results.
With only a few minor changes to the site's appearance overall, I've managed to tweak code on many of the main site's most important pages so that they now pass W3 certification if a validator is run on them. This ensures that the pages are held to a higher standard, and that they'll more likely display across a wide variety of browsers. The changes may also have the important effect of giving a minor boost on some search engines, which some suggest factor such things into their placement algorithms.
At the very least, people can't point to our prime pages and say "Wow, they don't even have a decently coded site!" There are people who do that sort of thing in their spare time. Really, there are.

I can sympathize with avoiding the under the hood stuff. I know what a pain it is to put in documentation for coworkers to use my scripts, but at the same time--it needs to be there, so it's useful for more than just me.
Then there's the stuff that seems annoying to add and I won't be sure how much time it saves, and then I wind up taking it for granted.
We are never quite sure what you're doing, but from the general descriptions it seems like under the hood stuff needs to be done & we're glad you are.
