&#60meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style" content="black"&#62


Preparing for Cross App promotion

Was looking into responsive web design… CSS building is really not my cuppa tea. So had to look for existing template which i can “borrow”.

Oh, also note to self, Responsinator is a useful site for testing responsive website designs. :)

And I’ll seriously need to figure out how to block bots from posting comments on this site…
