I was working at an automation engineering company, and was responsible for the operation interfaces for heating/ventilation/light engineering and stuff.

One day those interfaces needed to be ‘online’, that’s when I learned HTML and Javascript and ‘dynamic HTML ’.

This was 1998, and I used Frontpage Express on Windows 95 ;-)

I agree with Monkify here, although I found this line in the authors tutorial ;-)

Occasionally items will be rejected for other reasons. Some of these reasons might be: If a series of very similar items are already in the library. ...

Seriously, even if Envato decides to be more strict about this issue, I’m not sure if it the necessary administrative and technical effort would cause another frustration for the authors – waiting a loooong time for the queue to move.

If there is an outrageous copy of an older theme I’m sure the support staff will do something about it. The themes available right now on Themeforest are very similar, it’s hard to tell who is copying from who, and who came up first with the menu-slider-3columns-footer thing.

In fact I don’t get authors who copy others and stick to the same theme concept. If I wanted to do the same thing over and over again I would work with ordinary clients and advertising agencies.

Themeforest is a chance to escape from all the ‘clients from hell’, and do what you want, without compromises. Isn’t that what all web workers dream of? ;-)

What are my plans for this weekend? Playing with the Themeforest framework or going swimming? ;-)

It’s an apartment complex with enclosed hotel in Na Jomtien, 12 kilometers from Pattaya. So we are not directly in the ‘party zone’.

Prices start at approx. $ 1000/month, depends on the size of the apartment, and/or board.

(Un)fortunately the iPad isn’t really a mobile device. I mean, there is no need to design a smaller, more simple version of a website only for the iPad.

But, the browser has a few glitches which need to be addressed, to be 100% sure that the site looks the same on the iPad.
