My Movable Type installation seems to have broken. I can’t rebuild anything without getting a 500 error, and nobody can post any comments either.
I’ve posted for help on the MT support forums, but to no avail. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Has anybody got the answer? I won’t be able to post anymore until I get this fixed. =(
If anyone has any ideas, please contact me!
I’ve been a Winamp fan for quite some time now. I’ve been using it since the days of 2.1-ish, and it’s been near impossible to get me to switch to another full-time media player. Winamp 5 pretty much seals the deal with me.
The naming convention for Winamp 5 has already been discussed, and I’ve made available my favorite Winamp skins.
Although I wasn’t much of a fan of Winamp 3 in terms of using it (it was very, very slow), the thing that I did think was fantastic was Wasabi.
It’s time to sit down with a cup of hot chocolate and watch the Christmas lights twinkle on the tree…
I took my 2 year-old daughter outside this evening so we could walk down the street and look at all of the Christmas lights on all of the houses. There’s one house in particular that always goes all-out for every holiday, Christmas not being an exception.
She pointed at a big blow-up doll of Santa Claus and yelled “Santa, daddy! Santa!
Last summer, I posted about a strange problem I was having in Internet Explorer. The browser wasn’t properly drawing certain elements to the screen, namely <hn> tags with background images, colors, or borders. It was all very frustrating.
In the end, I just chalked it up to Internet Explorer sucking, and left it alone. Recently, however, my question was answered.
For elements that act as though they were relatively positioned, then go ahead and use position:relative; on it. It seems to fix it without a hitch.
Internet Explorer Sucks Most real web designers already know this. Most who don’t are generally either amateurs or are way, way behind the times. You’d think that with all of the money, power, and research and development resources Microsoft has, that they could produce a web browser better than crap. Apparently I’m mistaken.
Langridge Image Replacement I’ve been using the LIR technique for swapping out text in favor of images for a while now. While no image replacement technique is perfect, LIR is better than the alternatives (namely FIR).
A couple of people have asked me how I’m able to list the recent posts for nearly all of the blogs I read. The answer is simple. PHP, RSS, and the Magpie RSS Parser.
At one point, I made available the PHP code that I use to do it, once Magpie is already installed. If you do a search on this site, you can probably find it. I’ve been very happy with Magpie since I first began using it last summer.
I’m having a very difficult time comprehending how one single person could possibly be so hot! Now, I don’t know much about her personally. I don’t know if she got breast implants, I don’t know if she’s cool, stupid, or stuck-up, but that’s not what I’m talking about anyways. I’m talking purely visual, nothing else.
I stumbled across Mezzoblue’s “A Second Voice” today. I remember coming across it before, near the end of summer, but I was pressed for time and didn’t get through them. A few days later, I forgot about them.
I came across them again this morning, and actually read through each of the three articles. Fantastic!
Web Standards: Designing For The Future by Ian Lloyd Bulletproof XHTML by Evan Goer Accessibility: Build it, and They Will Come by Nic Steenhout These three articles definitely rival many from A List Apart (I use the term “rival” somewhat loosely).
I just wanted to say hello to those of you who are visiting me from The Web Standards Project, and a big “thank you” to Dave Shea for being kind enough to mention me in the latest WaSP blog post, “Browser Testing”.
If you’re just visiting for the first time, I’d like to point out that I’m currently looking for full-time employment as a web designer in Silicon Valley, Fresno, or San Diego. If all you’ve got is some contract work, I’d be interested in that too.
I’ve always been a fan of Nintendo. I’ve been a Nintendo fan since I got a hold of my first NES back in 1988 and bought a copy of Super Mario Bros 2. Although I have several other gaming systems as well, my preference has always been for Nintendo.
Anyways, I went down to the video store today, and rented a copy of Mario Kart: Double Dash for my GameCube. I stuck the disc in, and powered up the system. After an unusually long pause, the system went into setup mode, which is something is only does when the lid is open, or there is no game disc.
