Our last dump

Well this will be my last dump for a little while. I just got back from the bathroom a few minutes ago. I think Applebee’s is what provided the force that knocked this brick out. Turns out I was holding in all the stuff that didn’t come out yesterday, and so today it decided to come out in a footlong brick.

Of course, as always this gave me plenty of time to think about the writing on the walls around me. Someone left their phone number on the wall to my right saying they would blow me if I called. Someone was calling bush a name to my right. Really, there was little to no point for anything that was on the bathroom walls in this particular restroom. So I thought about something else.


Ok, well that’s out of me, I guess I’ll continue with the normal posts.

So I think that will be the last of my crappy posts. It turns out it’s attracting an audience that is into basically stupid things. That’s not the audience I really want or need, nor is it an image of myself that I wish to portray. On the upside it got me to start updating again.

I’ve switched Rinse First, JR Corps, and SPCPA over to a proper form of loading CSS. Most people don’t know this, but you should use @import to pull in your CSS as opposed to the link tag. This is because the @import doesn’t work with non-standards browsers which means the CSS won’t try to apply when it’s only going to half work.

The problem with @import is that in Internet Explorer, you get a flash of unstylized content. Google that if you want to know exactly what I’m talking about. Of course the solution is easy enough… You just have to tell IE that it should wait to render the page. This can simple be done by puting empty script tags before the css. This leads to code that looks like this:

<script type="text/javascript"></script>
<style type="text/css" media="screen">@import "des_style.css";</style>

Simple enough fix.

Air tight code is hard to write, but I’m always striving for it. I have a good amount of work to get done now, so there is my donation to the blog society today. One more note… I have a new goal of reaching 1000 posts by the end of the year. Wouldn’t that be something? A blog with a 1000 posts of almost meaningless content.
