After some extreme head banging and much pacing of the floor, the domain should be a bit more accessible to the “older” browers, yet be fully functional with the latest and greatest ones. Hm. It only took 6.5 hours to do it. 🙂
Some other things I wish to work on this weekend include making the site a little more “non-standards compliant” browser friendly. Netscape 4.79 renders the domain pathetically.
This weekend, I am going to work on improving the look and flow of some of my guides. Two examples of "where" they are going are the E-Mail Filtering Guide and XP Services Profiles Guide. I feel that adding titles, step numbering and image numbering helps my readers follow what I am doing. Also, it gives me a point of reference other than "half way down the page."
I am still working on several projects. One of them being a forum of sorts. Not the “all too common” version of PHP forums, but the standard issue USENET News Group access. I will be hosting local news groups for group discussion of my content. I almost have it all straight on how I wish to accomplish it and already have a News server running locally.
Wow. The power was out for a full 17 hours. My UPS only lasted 19 minutes of that. 🙂 Not only am I glad to be back online, but the house was starting to get chilly and the ice was melting in the Frig. Needless to say, I caught up on some lost sleep while the whole town was dark after 2 large transformers blew out last night. However, I am glad that I did not spend thousands of dollars on the latest and greatest UPS. Why? Because my ISP [Continue Reading]
The power just went out and I have no idea how long I am going to stay online. I guess I just have to hope for the best.
Well, the latest and greatest tweak that I applied to the whole site did exactly what I wanted it to do on one of my pages that I have not even posted yet. However, it also made each and every table that have throughout the domain not look as “I had intended.” This includes all text centered, which made the install guides totally unacceptable. As such, I have corrected the error and everything should be back to normal. Unfortunately, that means back to the drawing board for the “unposted content.”
Even though the "updates" have been few and far between, rest assured that I am working on several projects. Also, you may need to keep in mind that I do not just "toss" information up just to look cool. I work through the process and post the information when I am satisfied with it. This takes time. Currently, I want to post a "BootVis" guide, "Tweak UI," and a "How to host your own web services." I also wish to expand the Windows Services Information. Again, this takes time. Whenever [Continue Reading]
I seem to have fixed the search page for IE users. Please check it out and contact me if you have problems.
I admit it. I enjoy people contacting me and asking technical questions. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with strangers (people that do not contact me but surf on in) as well as, sometimes, the desperate people asking me for help as a "last resort." As with anything, this also has its limits. READ MORE…
