  1. Becoming a self-employed web designer, web publisher and/or web developer. I'm not sure about what precisely though but the "self-employed" part is very important to me. I don't see myself doing a 9 to 5 job or following the same old schedual years after years, and I wouldn't like to work under someone. I already managed to get several clients (a university, a union, a large cultural organization and several small firms) to keep me occupied during the holidays which is a very nice school for what I'm planning to do in the future. I do think that once I finish college I'll probably work in a fi
  2. Some days not at all, some days 14 at maximum. I guess average is about 6-8 hours.
  3. You'll find a bunch of such words here: http://dictionary.reference.com/wordoftheday/archive/
  4. Nah, Romanum is a genetive, so it means "of Rome".
  5. It's indeed Senatus Populusque Romanum. The Q is for the que after populus. Que means "and" and is put after a noun in Latin, attached to it. So the meaning is the senate and people of Rome.
  6. @Caesar Well that's a typical misunderstanding surrounding Esperanto. In fact it is a language you can use, there are quite a bit of online Esperanto communities and many countries have their own Esperanto teams. Also many books have been translated to Esperanto and in some countries there are even radio shows. The coolest thing perhaps is that several members of the Esperanto organization offer free bed and breakfast to foreign members visiting their country. Anyway just depends why you're learning an artificial or dead language. Esperanto is useful because of the nice community surrounding
  7. I did Latin for about 7 years and have nearly forgotten everything besides the basics. The thing is that since the fourth year we were only focussing on literature, social life, history and philosophy, the teacher did most of the translations. If you wish to learn it you either need a lot of time or follow it at school. The basic grammar really isn't that hard, it's just a matter of knowing the rules and extending your vocabulary. But understanding texts can be a pain, especially because the good old Romans were fond of style figures and the problem that the meaning of certain sentences depend
  8. In Flanders a real delicacy is horse meat. Don't know if this sounds strange to Americans, but our English neighbours think it's horrible. Oh and we eat frogs, snails and sea snails too
  9. The long term plan here is to graduate from college in two years, establish my small web publishing/consulting/design business and work for a few years for a company until I feel assured enough to become fully self-employed. And of course get kids Short term plan ... quickly finish projects for school and clients so I can finish my own websites.
  10. First one: Problem here is that you're trying to put too much in one picture. Either you have a much larger banner or you get rid of things that aren't so important. There also isn't a good balance aside from the left title and the right logo. It feels as if there's no real background but simply some pictures put atop eachother. So either you should make the foreground images stand out a lot more and make the background more monotone. The background is also composed of three areas which makes it seems as if there are three different backgrounds instead of one. You should make it blend much mor
  11. Some very nice sites there, Morgan. I do notice that many of those sites aren't the best examples of good usability and accessibility (some make extensive but unneeded use of Flash for example), while graphically they are quite appealing. On topic: What I'm missing on the web is a website centralising CSS tricks & hacks, usable and accessible AJAX, semantic XHTML, PHP OO design/patterns, usability best practices or good design tutorials exclusively related to modern web sites. There are quite a few for Javascript, procedural PHP, photoshopping, etc., but haven't seen one website yet doing
