I’m a 21 y/o young’n living in Melbourne, Australia. I’m an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician and in my spare time I make websites and music.
about the site
theblahman.net is designed, developed, authored and owned by Dan Barrett (aka theblahman).
The site is made up with a number of different (read: awesome) utilities:
- WordPress — a great blog publishing tool
- 960.gs — an awesome grid system for designing websites
The Archive page is based on Clean Archives Reloaded with some modifications by myself. I’m using a jQuery plugin called scrollTo by Ariel Flesler. The little sprout you see on the bottom right corner of the site is by Rogie King, along with the social media icons on the Contact page. Also in use is HTML5 and a hint of CSS3.
Software used to design and develop this site are as follows:
- Adobe Photoshop CS4 — WillCrashOnYouForLULZTM
- Coda by Panic — easily the best web development software for the Mac.
- Transmit by Panic — the coolest
MacFTP program ever.
- XAMPP — for local development and testing.
I also used paper and a pencil to design the site. Oh yeah, I still use that old sk00l technology.
