Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Running Around Naked… Without CSS

CSS Naked Day \'08

No it’s not a late April Fool joke. It’s for real!

Just like how the world observed an hour of darkness without illumination from lightbulb (well, that’s Earth Hour if you’ve forgotten what it was), the web is taking on an annual festival – disabling your website’s CSS stylesheet for 48hours starting on April 9th. I just learnt about it from Brandy’s blog, it sounds really fun – and most importantly, it lets you appreciate how much wonder and magic Cascading Stylesheets has brought to bloggers, blog readers, website visitors and webdesigners alike.

teddY-risatioNâ„¢ will be naked without CSS for 48 hours. I’m not going to care how ugly this blog looks – what really matters to me is that I’ve shown my appreciation of CSS and its developers!

Of course you can join, no matter whether you’re a blogger or not.

Have some naked fun!

When: 9th of April, 2008
Where: Your website, your blog or anything of yours that relies on the all-mighty CSS! It’s basically an Internet phenomenon across the globe.
What: Remove any CSS stylesheets associated with your site. And that’s all! Short and sweet.

If you’re interested, don’t forget to check out the main page of CSS Naked Day. There is where you’ll get a whole load of information behind the meaningful event, and don’t forget to sign up (but promise that you’ll strip your blog bare on that day!).

There’s even a WordPress plugin for it! :razz:

Strip your blog bare, run naked around without CSS, laugh at how others’ (and my) blog look hilariously ugly without it. Drop a comment, give some love. Most importantly, be proud!

So what are you waiting for? Join in the fun! And if possible, help to spread the word!

    you were making me very very worried. i almost thought my browser or internet was so faulty that it couldn’t load the page properly. which happens occasionally when the net is really ‘shot’.

    i don’t think blogspot uses css? hehe. =D

    but your blog does look very different. seriously different. haha, kudos to the css inventors for making it possible

    “Strip your blog bare, run naked around without…” sounds wrong~!~~! i left out the last word on purpose. =p

    Even if I was not so busy, I don’t think I will consider taking down the CSS of my page for a day to make a point about web developing. Aside from uglifying the world for a day and scaring the crap out of people who have no idea what CSS is, it doesn’t do much. It’s too much developer-centric idea.

    I totally understand Earth Hour though. Awareness aside, Earth Hour can save everyone some electric bills and lessen quite a bit of pollution.

    Haha. I’m just a practical person like that. ;)

Your name is required. Why?

  • So that I can address you personally (which I'm more than happy to do).
  • Everyone loves their name to be called, right? Nobody wants to be referred to as 'a certain someone' or Mr X (X-Men members aside).
  • If your post too much spam, your name will be imprinted on a personalised voodoo doll, completely free of charge. I'm just joking!

Your email is needed. Why?

  • Your email is, and will, never be given out to any third party under any conditions (except for people sneaking up behind me when I'm on WP admin).
  • So that I can contact you personally in case of certain issues that I wish to address personally.
  • If you post too much spam, I'll email the same spam you've posted 10 times back to you, completely free of charge.

You can always leave a personal URL behind

  • It can be anything - most people put their blog URL, their facebook page, their Twitter URL, their MySpace or etc.
  • I give love back by saying NO to no-follow. All of your webbie links are dofollows instead.

Twitter. Twitter. Twitter.

  • What is Twitter?: Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 bytes in length.
  • What is my Twitter ID?: To get a Twitter ID, you simply have to sign up for an account at Twitter.com. Your ID will be in the format of your profile's URL - http://twitter.com/[userid].

Hello Easter Egg hunter! You've discovered the magic of the Konami Code!

Yea. You probably know what the Konami code is before getting to this page. So now what? Here is a randomised YouTube video on my favourites list... which includes Rickroll, if you're luck enough to get it.

You are currently watching Stuart: Next Door. Loving it? You can even watch the video in its full screen glory :)
