Conditional comments to fix Internet Explorer’s stupid CSS

Sunday, April 9th, 2006

For those of us who are still stuck on this Titanic of a biz called web development, I’d like to provide a ray of hope - at least for those struggling with CSS.

Everyone likes the idea of CSS. It keeps the HTML clean and presents layout opportunities that regular HTML+Tables just cannot provide. For an example, see the incomprehensibly complex and beautiful Tennessee Vacations site. The problem of course (and there’s always a problem) is that Internet Explorer, in all it’s forms (including IE7, also known as the Web-People-Thought-Our-Problems-Would-Be-Over-But-They-Ain’t release) interprets and renders your beautiful, simple markup+CSS in the most ass-backwards fucking retarded way possible. But only the actual important stuff, and only in retarded ways: float sizes are calculated …

Ancient book bound in human skin found

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

In England of course they found a book from the 1700s bound in human skin - I wish my library, wherever that may be, would carry books like these. I might actually open one.

Bobby Flay

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I think this guy thinks really highly of himself. He carries himself proud as a peacock. Or proud as a regular cock. What a cock.

Conspiracy watch: Immigration debate

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

The sudden national debate on immigration is a surprise to me. If you had told me a month ago that we’d be talking about this for hours on end on cable news channels today, I wouldn’t have believed it. It’s so strange that I’m wondering if perhaps this debate is being coordinated by the Democrats, who may have finally gotten their act together about the messages they emit as a group, and may be taking Karl Rove-style action to frame national debate over issues that they have nailed.

This came to me while reading this post on Daily Kos which talks about how the libs are finally putting together a solid platform while the Republicans dissolve into conflicted, warring parties …

Message to the future

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

If I ever become a wealthy person through media - blogs or otherwise - please, at all costs, prevent me from occupying my broadcast hours chit-chatting about industry rumor shit no one cares about. A good example is the “Katie Couric is no jounalist but she’s gonna be at CBS News” non-fiasco that’s heading up Don Imus’s show on MSNBC, Drudgereport’s top story for the past two days, and (I would imagine) Gawker. Neil Rodgers also does this with annoying frequency. No one outside the industry really gives a shit about Katie Couric’s journalistic merit. She looks pretty and she smiles and I forget about mortgages and cancer. That’s all we ask of our talking heads.

Will your next car run on lube?

Ok, no one uses vegetable oil as lube - I hope - but check out this bizarre Jetta that runs on vegetable oil.
