This Site has moved

Thursday, November 10, 2005
This has officially moved.

I have migrated all the previous posts to my new site.

All past and future posts can now be found at www.brianbowen.com

NOTE:
As of today... November 10, 2005, things over there are still not 100% the way I want them. But I have picked a default theme for now while I work on a new one in my "free time"

 

Technical excuse for not writing

Monday, November 07, 2005
Ok, so I know I haven't written any posts lately. I've been out of town... and I'm headed to Athens tomorrow... PLUS I have been trying to learn CSS style sheets and the php that is in the WordPress themes. By learn I mean cut and paste programming. Basically looking at other templates, seeing how they did something, then cut and pasting it into mine. Then looking it up in on-line tutorials for the other stuff.

I did finally get the header navbar to align like I wanted... BUT then I tried it in IE... rrrrrg

Thats me shaking my head in aggravation. That one part works great in Firefox (the browser I use) and Konqueror if you use KDE (I personally like GNOME better on my linux box) BUT it doesn't look right in IE and I can't really test safari..

Here's the browser share for the last 100 hits:


4545.00%Firefox1.0.7

3030.00%MSIE6.0

1515.00%Firefox1.0.6

55.00%Safari1.2

22.00%MSIE5.23

11.00%MSIE5.5

11.00%Mozilla5.0

so there's the delimia... do I advertise the new site address with a theme that only looks right to 60% of the readers? Well... I'm thinking, not yet... I think I'll give myself some more time to learn CSS.

Ok... so now that I thoroughly bored you to death... I'll sign off.
 

I love my air card

Wednesday, November 02, 2005


This is on of the places I often spend my lunch. Its particularly nice today because there's no bugs, a slight breeze, the crickets are still making noise in the brush and the temperature is just right.

Not only can I sit out here in my soccer chair, which I keep in my truck, but I can get on-line too. And yes, sometimes... getting online really is relaxing even if you do work on computers all day.

I'm using one of the aircards provided through my other job. Its from Verizon and most the time you can get close to broadband speed. It does slow down on occasion. But hey... I'm sitting in a chair, on the edge of the river, drinking my Diet Dr. Pepper and STILL able to post on my blog.

Pretty cool if ya ask me.

oh yeah, if you were wondering... my Dr Pepper cap... said... Please try again... oh well, no free 1 liter today.
