They're Not Coming... 

They're not coming. My Other Bestfriend and his girlfriend aren't coming to visit me. They're stuck in NY. Customs wouldn't let them into Canada, and as they start to drive elseways the car wouldn't shift gears.

She says they *might* be arriving on Wednesday. *cries* I didn't think this evening would be soon enough. Later definately won't be. The only thing I had to get me through today was knowing they would be here tonight about when I got home.

What do I do now?

HTML/css in Netscape and IE 

YAY! I finally figured it out! :D

I've known for a long while that Netscape and IE display percentages differently, such as if you say font-size:80%; that will appear as different sizes in the different browsers, or if you say width:25%; that will appear differently in the different browsers. Instead you have to specify exact pixel sizes for the two browsers to display the same. (In the examples above that would be font-size:8px; and width:200px; as examples.)

But I had still be having spacing issues with the two browsers. And in trying to make this blog design the same in both I discovered the elusive problem. Height! Netscape and IE render height attributes differently, even if you define specific pixel sizes. It's actually a bit more complicated than that, dealing with one browser always forcing things to the height specified and the other browser ignoring the height specified when other things start conflicting. But basically, if you simply don't use any height attributes and instead use a combination of margin, padding, and vertical-align attributes both browsers will behave the same.

You have no idea how happy I am over figuring this out. :)

Looking Spiffy! 

If I do say so myself. And oh! I do! ;)

We've got a new blog layout, one I've been wanting to try somewhere for a while now. Em, let me know what you think. I'm not totally sold on this yet.

We've also got Blogger comments working. Who hoo!

Let the windfall begin...

Why do we, as people, feel the need to hurt others when we are hurting? (That other usually being whomever caused us pain.)

Why is it you always get hurt in the end by the people you care about? (The only way this doesn't happen is if you die first, but then you've hurt others. There's no escape.)

Why do I have the need to have people I care about and who care about me? It'd be so much easier if I didn't need people, then I wouldn't get or cause hurt.

Why does my best friend live so far away?

What I've discovered surfing the "Next Blog" button 

I have to admit I'm surprised by how many blogs in Spanish there are on blogger. Glad, but surprised, lol.

I finally came across one not in English or Spanish, it's in... um... whatever they speak in Malaysia (Malaysian? Doubtful.). But that's only one in dozens.

I also see how many standard blog templates there are out there now, a fact Emily commented on in her blog. Which reminds me: Emily, we need to change this layout. Especially if I end up using this as I keep thinking I will, but probably won't. :p

Here's some blogs I found I decided are worthy of note. Two I even commented on (or was it three?). Most of these are only worthy for their layout, but a couple are content worthy too.

- Love the little angel picture! Intrigued by the design. Not sure about blog content.

http://windchimewalker.blogspot.com/ - Hmm, well written, looks like it could use some more visitors. I commented.

http://melodee128.blogspot.com/ - OHHHHH! How cute! And looks like a good blog in general. I commented.

http://spangkie.blogspot.com/ - Great layout, really not so good blog.

http://myhypertextuallife.blogspot.com/ - Interesting layout, not sure I understand the blog.

http://chat-tolteque.blogspot.com/ - Don't care about the blog, here's a standard layout I actually REALLY like. Oh but hey, it's in French!

http://idontwanaknow.blogspot.com/ - Here's another one I'm not so sure about, but I liked the current blog entry.
