This issue comes to you from a coffee shop in downtown Raleigh, I'm here for All Things Open so do find me and say hello if you are here too. Also, we are getting close to my final CSS Layout Workshop of the year in Brighton. It'll be a really good day if you want to really dig into CSS Layout, more details here.
