Saturday is gone, but I got a header image up

I’m writing this as the menubar clock ticks over to double zeros. Saturday is now officially over. I got some important grunt-work done today (preparations and image collecting for another site I’m creating soon), spent some excellent time down at the coffee shop with Neil, and have wrapped the day with a new header image for regularjen. It probably won’t last long, but it’s a heckuva lot better than staring at the ugly default text that has been up for a few days.

If you’re visiting me with IE 6, I haven’t made time to bug-fix that issue with the post titles, but it’ll come. By the way- (this news appeals to the webdevs out there) you heard about Internet Explorer 8 passing the Acid2 rendering test? Dayum! Hell hath frozen over! Rejoice! I reckon Microsoft owes us all a round of drinks.

Must get to bed. In the morning, Neil and I are likely going to start me behind the wheel again. We very rarely use the car but it would be cool if I started making steps towards getting a full driving license. (Then I can sneak off to IKEA for some quality time in flat-pack Nirvana…) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good night!

  1. Nice new look!

    Good luck with the driving.

    BTW – am definitely up for a trip to the mirrors. Would be great to get out and take photos again.

    – Neil.

  2. Thank you Neil! And thank you for commentingโ€šร„รฎ turns out I have a text formatting bug in the comments to fix! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ah, the growing pains of lazily updating/upgrading a blog…

    Checking out the mirrors sounds like a must-do. (To other readers: this refers to a few mentions of these on Twitter.)

  3. OK- I couldn’t go to bed with that nasty comment formatting issue. I know it’s corrected in Firefox & Safari (Mac), and IE7. I’m still waiting for a remote browser capture of IE6. Fingers crossed… UPDATE: Oh, poo. I hate IE6. Fix coming soon.

  4. Okay, this theme is great. I hate doing this but I find the theme extremely clean and wonderful and therefore, I had to “borrow” it. Obviously, you’ll tweak it to your hearts content as you’ve got damn fine skills. I’ll probably add stuff here and there, but still, damn! I like it, I really like it!

    Happy New Year Jen!

  5. And Happy New Year to you too Brian! It is a nice theme, isn’t it. Now if I can get comments fixed for IE6 (the Devil’s browser) then all will be well with the world. As it was last night, the damn thing kept me awake far too long in bed.

    IE6-related insomnia. I doubt my doctor would understand… ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. Oooo – it’s working. Penfold and I were talking about you yesterday – no comment! – so what am I doing here? If you know the answer, please let me know.
    Byeeee ……

  7. Comments are alive and well. ๐Ÿ™‚
    What happened was a database attack that forced us to restore several years of comments from a backup database. It was fairly nasty and I had to wait until I had the time to upgrade to a more secure version of WordPress before I could risk enabling the comment ability again.

    Blog hackers suck.

    Thank you for not giving up on me though! x

  8. Tried to leave a comment yesterday, but I think it got eaten ๐Ÿ™‚

    In IE6, paragraphs in comments are inheriting the 510px width from the main post style. If you reset them to 350px using a selector with higher specificity, it should all be fine. Something like:

    #commentblock ol li div.commenttext p { width:350px; }

    The nice thing about these Intel-based Macs is the ability to run virtual machines with each copy of Windows you need to test against. Such a time-saver for webdev stuff.

  9. Hi Drew! I trolled through loads of spammies in the Akismet comment prison and released the one above. The CSS probably made the guards suspicious.

    Thank you for the guidance. I’m rusty with my CSS skills, and specificity has always been one of my weaknesses, so the fix suggestion (and subsequent SUCCESS! Hooray!) is really appreciated.

    I used to use BrowserCam when I was actively doing some dev work, but have switched to the opensource BrowserShots.org. Good stuff as long as you do it when the Americans are sleeping.

    I owe you a coffee sometime! Cheers! ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Hooray! I only really properly figured out specificity and all the cascade rules when I started having to teach it to other people – it’s a nightmare. Glad you got it sorted!
