Ok after looking over my CSS I discovered one descrepency which made the single post pages look odd. Then I figured out the positioning problem with the top curved thingy was caused because IE doesn’t support [element] > [sub element] (element direcly under the parent element) coding but does support [element] [sub element] (element somewhere under the parent element). I had to assign the image a class so that I could gain the desired effect. Now only the PNG bug remains, which I cannot fix so IE users get a real browser.
So there is this art collaboration by the art community at Blue Sfear that is approximately 56.25 feet long. The image is about 7.0 MB in size, so dial-up users you have been warned. Each member has created a section is 600×450 pixels, and the artist is allowed to use any program he/she wants. The worm flows as one gigantic mural and is a must see. There is some sexually suggestive content on it, even though the artists are required to refrain from posting explicit images.
Due to server upgrades, my blog may not be up much for the next two days. But not to fear after this is over everything will be much faster. Besides this week is finals week so I don’t have much time. Expect an update on Friday.
It’s AJAX based, uses google maps, and fairly inaccurate. It finds the city in which the IP is supposed to be from and then randomly picks a point within 10 miles of the actual location. It’s fun to play around with.
In the time since I’ve had stattraq tracking hits and such on my site, I have had over 13,000 hits and 10,000 ‘unique’ users. I just thought that was interesting. I’ve been meaning to update for some time but haven’t gotten around to it. The poll that I have running is in a four way tie, and has been tied ever since the second vote, I guess no one has the same opinion on the topic.
I promise that by the end of the month I will have the site looking good on Internet Explorer 6. And by that I mean anything that I can do without breaking the experience for those who use standards compliant Mozilla/5.0 compatible browsers such as, Firefox, Safari, and Konqueror.
