Okay, I thought I had the RSS updated, but it turned out it really wasn’t. pMachine (the current blog package) is sort of a bitch to customize code-wise, so… sorry, folks. You’re just going to have to visit the site to read the whole article for now.
With the new look and feel, I’ve noticed that if I throw a picture in there and align it to the right, sort of like I do in some entries, if the picture is longer than the entry, you get some odd overlapping and such.
I’ve tried to fix it, but IE’s rendering engine just can’t seem to handle the CSS ‘clear: both’ directive correctly. That is, I tried to say “each entry should clear on both sides so you don’t get overlapping entries,” but when I do that, IE loads the page up then the top entry on the page blinks out of existence until you scroll it off the screen, then back on… then after a few seconds, it just blinks out of existence again. Obvious rendering engine bug. (Works on Firefox just fine, though.)
Long and short of it is, I’m not sure if there’s anything I can do about the overlap in a browser-independent fashion (which is what I was hoping to achieve). I’ll keep plugging away at it, but for now, I’ll just have to watch my image sizes.
I’ve been watching the show Supernanny a bit lately, it being a total train wreck as far as the ridiculous out-of-control-nature of the kids on the show and whatnot, and over the course of watching I realized something:
I can’t really quantify what it is, but there’s something about Jo Frost that is just hot. I’m gonna have to take that one to the psychologist, aren’t I? I’m sure Freud would be having a ball with me.
I think I have all the major kinks worked out. I may have to jimmy a few more things around as I see them, but for the most part, we’re cocked, locked, and ready to rock with the new look.
I think the update is going pretty well. As I grab a moment here and there, I’m able to complete more and more stuff. There’s still oddness, like the fact the site looks fine in Firefox but there’s this weirdness in IE where the main page sort of slants off to the left with each new entry… and bulleted lists in entries are different in IE than Firefox… but it’s not impossible to overcome. I’ll keep working on it, but I’m pretty pleased with what it’s shaping up into - Visual Paraesthesia .NET! Heh.
