Don’t Panic

The website should look different now (actually, it should look better, but I don’t want to be too optimistic), so don’t be alarmed. I’ve been messing around with WordPress themes for a while now, hence my complaints about CSS and anal-retentive web designers, and this is the result.

I just noticed that it looks like ass on Internet Explorer for the PC, but I guess that’s to be expected. Please, people: get Firefox. If not for yourself, then for the people you love.

It also doesn’t scale that well, so if you’re using a screen resolution less than 1024×768, your browser’s probably going apeshit with the pictures and the floats and the thing and LADY! And I doubt that it’ll work on a cell phone, but really, if you’re using a cell phone to read my blog, then I’m afraid that you need help way beyond the capabilities of XHTML and CSS standards.

It’s all still in progress, so some parts are bound to be broken or missing — if you see something that’s clearly off, or if the navigation is weird or confusing or there’s something you should be able to do but can’t, please let me know either through e-mail or the comments. This is just a personal website, but the whole point of it is to learn how to do all this stuff correctly.

  1. I like the new look, and I’m glad to see someone else pushing Firefox. I still have IE at work and it kills me. Between that and having to use Lotus Notes, I’m at a serious good mood disadvantage. You’re still planning on coming up, right? My friend Paul is dying to meet you. And, you know, I haven’t seen you in six years and it’d be really great to see you again and whatnot.

  2. I don’t know crap about screen resolution, but I am using Firefox on a PC at work and the pictures aren’t lining up correctly (the text isn’t wrapping, instead the images are above the posts.)

    Looks fab on my iBook. Of course!

  3. Hmm, I’ve tried Firefox PC and don’t get everything to stop lining up until I make the window pretty small. I could be using a newer version, though.

    And the collie still fades in, but apparently it’s quick and only does it once for the entire site. On Safari & Opera, he’s fading in and out all over the place.

    Back to the drawing board…
