What the hell has just happened? :)
Somethings definitely wrong here :)
"You know what Gary, something happened here today...something goooooodd....."
It's very difficult to read *anything* :/
"A little icky baking" copied and pasted becomes "A little icky looking"
lol! what's your browser / OS / screen res then?
I have to copy and paste posts into Word to be able to read them...they're ridiculously small...
I'm using IE5.5 on Win95 and my screens set to 800x600.
Everythings really, really small...
It's really small here too. Not so small that I need to past it into Word, but definitely a lot smaller than before. I'm using Netscape Communicator 4.72 with Windows 2000. Resolution 1024x768 with 17inch monitor.
It's making my head hurt!
text on my screen is just ludicrously small. Would someone mind emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org on how to rectify this? Many thanks.
woww. my text is fuckin huge. its great. less starain on me eyes.
okay howzat look? I've switched it to ezBoards default stylesheet. Bit scary, but I'll poke at it a bit...
Aye, s'all back to normal now.
That was all a bit odd...
Ewe know, the whole "debacle" has prompted me to buy O'Reilly's
"Definitive Guide to HTML and XHTML 4th Edition".
Soon I will know all the facts in the werld!!!!!!!! :-)
i think dreamweaver has that guide built in now
...David is silly and will only use notepad do do his websites isnt that right? he misses out o all the good stuff that good ole dreameaver has to offer!
yes, I write all my own code in Notepad.
That way I know what's in there and what it does
without any fuss and nonsense.
The time will come soon when I shall being writing it all in vi though! :-)
ha! I used to have to tweak Apache config scripts in vi at work. Jeesus, that was a freakin' nightmare. What possesed Unix's designers to pick the command names and parameters they did? They're completely unintuitive! I had to have a huge printout of every freaking command *ever* beside me as I typed. Even scrolling through pages of text was an ordeal if you didn't memorize the key commands
...and they wonder why Microsoft and Apple are successful?
Yes but why does everyone not just use emacs - powerful, intuitive, stabel, FREE available for neartly every OS.
because, Ginger Hendrix old bean,
vi is ALWAYS available on EVERY Unix System,
even if ewe have to boot up in something scarey like
"Single User Mode",
wheras emacs may not ALWAYS be there.
Hence, it "pays" to know vi.
Actually, if ewe spend enough time with vi,
ewe do end up memorising loads of the commands and
can eventually touch type them - which ends up
being INCREDIBLY fast...
...it literally does date from the days of teletypes ewe see.
And anyway, it was a big step forward from ed (or was it ex?)
which only let ewe edit one line of ASCII at a time :-)
Personally I'm learning to write HTML using two bits of wire and a logic gate
Yeah, computers have never been the same since they took away the row of binary lights and switches, and switched to abstracted keyboard control for data input :-)
writing programs in machine code using reference cards is much more fun than these so called "higher level" languages
Neu! Pentium Five with analogue valve technology
Neu! AMD Turdon with *real live* ants in tubes!
Oh for the days when a bug was a REAL bug....
I'm off to tell Terry Pratchett to sue!
That things a direct rip-off of HEX!!
Damn these large, theiving chip-men....
