Just a little update before I start reading for my damn exams again – a few glitches were corrected and the site is now working smoothly with Mozilla and IE 6.0.
And after today’s lecture I’ve got this simple conclusion: I’m fucked!
I took the site for a spin over at W3C to have it validated – go standards! With a liitle debugging I was able to get all the pages validated. Whoho! I had to cheat a little with the margins, though, and use some non-standard attributes to get things to look as they are supposed to in Opera.
But that’s OK. I’m about 99% standarized, and that’s more than I can say for most other sites. Check out Microsoft’s main page for instance. The validator doesn’t even bother to start validating it – haha – I laugh at you, Bill Gates. Here’s a version where the validator is forced to validate the page in HTML 4.01 Transitional. Not a pretty sight…
I also tried my site in Mozilla, but of some strange reasons it didn’t look very well. My first guess is that it has something to do with the CSS. I’ll have a look at it some day.
Gotta read some more now – heading down to Stine in about an hour.
I also added a link to K5 in the “news that matters” category to your right. I don’t have a lot of experience with the site, but judgeing by the number of comments, it looks like an active and good site. They are in the middle of changing hosts, so they are experiencing a tad trouble at the moment. Be patient.
I just had to do something else than reading for my end term exams
today yesterday. Or I might have killed someone or myself. Both options are bad. So I decided to redesign my site (again). Lots and lots of inspiration gathered over at Disinformation. The design and color scheme is more or less the same, but with a personal touch. Hey, don’t look at me that way! At least I’m an honest ripper, man!
In other news, I should mention that I now only have one, en, ein, 1 end term exam left and I’m seriously looking forward to it’s over. I don’t think I’ve ever been looking forward to a vacation this much ever before. I have no idea why, probably just need some spare time and relax some.
In the middle of all the reading, I’ve been able to play two rounds of Space Empires IV and I must admit that I’m starting to get the hang of the game – at the easiest AI level, though. It might be time to move up a level. I really recommend the game! You can download a demo and order it here. Actually, I recommend that you wait with the buying until the Gold edition is released.
Another game I’ve had a look at is Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. I’ve not been able to play it much becuase my PC sucks and I don’t have a joystick, but I hope to get a joystick for Christmas and that will make the flying experience a little better. And easier. Could use a new PC, too, though… anyone?
Tomas (the ass-kicker) got his black belt in Taekwon-do
today yesterday. He did very well at the graduation and was the best one who attended. I guess about 15 people attended, everyone got their belt. Congratulations, man – all that hard work – you really deserve it! Have a look at the cast to see who you should probably not mess with. And if his girlfriend is with him, you should just start running.
Talking about the boyfriend/girlfriend thing. Klas broke up with Kine a few days ago. It was a thing that had been hanging in the air for about a month. She had noticed, I knew, and I guess it was just a question about time before they split up. The details are a little sketchy at the moment, I haven’t been talking much with any of them the last month because of my god damn exams. Gotta do the third degree when I meet Klas during the vacation.
Whoa, it’s getting late! I have to find my bed now, gotta get up early tomorrow to read. Good morning y’all… Yeah, I read on a Sunday. Because I’m a dedicated student? No, it’s because I don’t wanna flunk… See you around, readers, I can’t promise any frequent updating, but I’ll do my best.
note: as the smarter of you might notice, these ramblings were scheduled for posting yesterday night, but my friends over at f2s were giving me a hard time with internal server errors and DNS errors, so I kinda gave it up and postponed the whole thing until this morning.
