I love junk. So I’ve created a Flickr group (Beyond Repair) for pictures of things so far gone they’re not likely to recover.
If you’ve got any pictures that fit the bill (and a Flickr account…) please sign up and add them to the group.
Oh, I see I have to write some more so the image doesn’t overflow the story box. Gotta love CSS eh? I mean, I do like CSS. I just can’t help thinking that if they were designing it from scratch now they’d do a few things differently.
I spent three hours last night converting a fairly simple table based layout to CSS and along the way triggered all sorts of bizarre browser bugs. At one point I had Safari rendering the page non-deterministically: on one refresh it’d render as expected and on the next it’d leave a huge amount of whitespace at the bottom of a fairly innocuous DIV. Ho hum.
I’ve had a notional wish list for forum software for ages. Right at the top of that list is “organise using categories rather than separate forums”. Just as I was about to get off my arse and do something about it (well, nearly) I stumbled across Vanilla. It does that and has a bunch of other features I like too. Lots of nice little AJAX (urk) touches in there as well.
If you’d like to come and play I’ve set up a Hexten forum here. I haven’t done much to customise it yet. Apart from turning on a few extensions that’s how it comes out of the box.
