Slight tweaks

by Suw on January 25, 2004

Any poor soul who's visited my blog over the last hour may have seen any one of a number of ghastly design mistakes which should, quite frankly, never have made it into the Blog-City template list. If you were one of the victims of poor colour co-ordination and painfully bad design, I do apologise. I just hope that the vomiting has stopped now.

I was looking for a template that didn't look shit on a Mac, but I discovered that the standard templates just all look shit, Mac or no Mac. Instead I've tweaked my usual template and hope that will do.

If you are on a Mac and using Safari, please can you leave me a note or comment to say if the blog is now both easily readable and not too grim to look at.

Thanks to Kevin for letting me know my blog looked shit. Much appreciated.

Using Safari 1.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.3, the site looks fine.

It also looks fine with IE 5.1.7 on Mac OS 9.

Thanks Ralph! Good to know that it looks ok.

See, I really should just buy a Mac so I can test these things myself, eh? 😉

Well, when your screen play has been optioned, and when the film is being made, make damn sure they provide you a 15″ Powerbook to work on. For compatibility with the rendering and compositing dudes of course.

PLUS, you'll need an iPod so, like Peter Jackson, you can carry large slabs of the film around in your pocket.

The design makes no difference to the quality of the content.


Just kidding. Muah!

Andrew: Good idea! I shall remember that.

Steve: Yeah, it's true. You can't polish a turd, eh?

Polishing a turd would be a futile effort… Just look at the crap on my site (although it does look nice…)

Looks fine in Safari 1.0 on Mac OS X 10.2.6 as well.

Thanks Ralph. Nice to know that I have a clean sweep in the looking good stakes. Well, not me, the blog, obviously.
