MadTV: The journal

list of things to do
04/02/2005
Ok, here's my theory: If I blog some of the "to-do's" I have too, um, do; then maybe I'll be more likely to do them. With me so far?

  • Seperate MadTV and Gone Away into two parts in an Information architecture sense
  • Build a Site Map
  • Build a MadTV archives page
  • Make my Local Blog editor available online for my Dad
  • Get those darn cookies doin' what I want
  • Build a style switcher
  • Write some styles to switch between
  • Change the auto-email that comments send me so that I know which darn blog the comment was made
  • Investigate my blog admin automatically writing to the RSS file, so I don't have to
  • Stick perma-urls on every post

Looking at that little lot, it's probably best if no one distracts me for a few months...

Gone Away
Over here at Gone Away, the staff are in ferment, Mad. They are so looking forward to the proposed changes and have asked me to convey their thanks and approval. And Miss Gonea Way says you can come up and see her anytime, baby.

Why, that two-timing flooze! Eh, nevermind her; damn eyes were too close-set, plus her family resembled back roads in Arkansas; deep-rutted and oft-traveled by itinerant tinsmiths. Madson, all your sweat and intense thought paid off well. The place looks even more grand than before. Now to peruse an ad or two...

Hey bubs - just noticed something -- the top-left gradient background for the comments doesn't show up in FF, but does in IE. Wierd, huh?

Yeah, that's a by product of the .NET framework. The comments part of the page resides in what's called a panel. Which is meant to be a programatically controllable div, which it is in IE. Sadly though it assumes Firefox/Mozilla is an old browser and changes the div to a table (eww a table on my site). Which in turn knackers my CSS. Now I could write some more CSS so the background works in a table or I just sulk and hope the whole matter goes away. Guess which I've chosen so far?

so dotnet dynamically chooses structure like that? Voodoo, I say. Voodoo!
