I’m sorry

I’m sorry. My last conversation with you dates back to 2012. By the time I didn’t know it would be the conversation to stay for four years. I could have known, I hear you say, our last encounter adds two years on top. And I know what you think… He’s coming back, after years, asking for forgiveness and I should welcome him like I did the years before, when everything was good.… As if nothing had ever happened!

It must feel like a bad excuse to tell you, the same happened to everyone else in my life. To twitter, to facebook, to instagram, to you, my dear blog. I hope you pragmatically recognized, that I always kept your files and folders up-to-date and replaced plugins with the newest versions, with some shiny finesse under the hood. I really thought a lot of you, logged in and out, tried to publish something, but I never really found the time.

I hope I can regain some of your trust and support in the foreseeable future by working hard on our relationship and spending some quality content with you.

Thank you, dear Blog!

Pure CSS animated 3D Super Mario Icon

After my latest CSS3 experiment without images (Internet Explorer Pure CSS Logo), a friend suggested to create an animated 3D Super Mario Icon based on the 3D Retro Mario GIF image by Cezkid.

Well, this is the result of two weeks of work – an animated 3D Super Mario Icon built completely in CSS3 without images.

Best viewed with Safari 5 & Chrome 9.

Chrome prior Version 9 renders in 2D only due to an older Webkit engine.
Opera 10.6, Firefox 3.6 and IE9 are not supported.

Please note that the source code is still a mess. You better not have a look at it ;-)

It’s based on top of my CSS 4D Framework I created therefor and will be released in the next few weeks (when it’s out of alpha).

Internet Explorer Pure CSS Logo

When I stumbled over David Desandro’s Opera CSS Logo and Zander Martineau’s Pure CSS Icons, I really liked their idea to create “art” only with CSS.

So here is my work, the All CSS Internet Explorer Logo, a logo built completely in CSS, without any graphics.

See the Demo (best viewed with Firefox 3.6 & Safari 5)
Chrome 5 has a lot of issues at the moment due to an older Webkit engine. CSS for Opera 10.6 and IE9 are coming soon. The CSS is a mess at the moment, I’ll clean it up later.
