Adelaide managed to get into my office and fiddle with my PC yesterday. When I next used it it was behaving really strangely. I couldn't drag-and-drop anything within Windows Explorer; it just ignored me. I also found that on the gmail website nothing I clicked on did anything. Something wasn't right...
I've queued up a batch of photos for my photo blog, and while I was stuffing around with Picasa I found that shots that look great on my Sony LCD are just plain murky on either of theCRTs.
So -- if you see a shot that I've posted to the photo blog and think is kind of cool, but you're looking at it thinking "This guy is nuts; those colors are awful", then maybe you just need to get one of these.
I finally had enough of the crappy old Active Applications website, so I hacked about with a whole bunch of CSS and came up with something that I like a little bit better. It's still not perfect, but it's a lot closer to what I'm after than the old one, and this one has one huge advantage: it's simple and it's maintainable. Ok, two huge advantages. Simple, maintainable and Google should actually index this one sensibly for us. Ok, three huge advantages.
The new site is still a little bare, but hopefully one day I'll have something terribly clever to say about the world of business and... well, maybe not.
I didn't realise that browser support for CSS was sodamnpatchy.
I have had some major problems with an unreliable PC lately. My main Linux development machine had a strange habit of randomly rebooting itself; for a long time I didn't worry about it, because it rarely did it while I was using it. That started happening more and more though, so it got a bit annoying.
