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.
If you are reading my blog and are using Internet Explorer that is not 7.0 or newer get rid of it. For some odd reason IE 6 is not liking several aspects of my site and is prone to doing stupid things, such as floating everything to the right on a 126px left margin. The main page isn’t terrible, but IE ignores many of my CSS commands and should be deleted for doing so. I suggest getting Mozilla Firefox or some other Mozilla/5.0 compatible browser, which IE isn’t.
I’ve partially implemented by new WordPress theme. Well, I had it up and was testing it on Saturday night. I know that other pages are broken right now (these are just about every page other than the main page). No need to fret, I know how to fix it for Mozilla Firefox and friends but as for IE 6 I need to do some testing. So bear with me while I work out all of the kinks. I’ll continue to post but the theme may become broken as I tinker with it until it does what I want.
As for the base of the theme, it’s Kubrick. But, I have rewritten about 80% of the code. Not only are the images different, but how they are represented differently since I keep all of my CSS in a .css file. I know that I have to make one more graphic for use in the user comments area, and I’ll get that done ASAP.
