    I’ve been tinkering with the CSS to try to get it to work in IE/Windows. With the help of friendly people from the css-discuss list I should have it working now. People on Windows, what do you think ? I won’t see what it looks like until Tuesday, or maybe after the new year.

    Tee hee. I finally have AxKit working on my home computer and pretty soon on this server too.

    Just completed a major overhaul of the way my styles are organized - I factored the style sheets out so that they are more encapsulated. Also I fixed up my huge Edion Handbook so that it’s XHTML compliant and properly styled. Also my webcounter claims I’m about to have my 5000th hit. (Analog says I’ve had more.)

    I just moved the IT@UW blog into it’s own directory . Change your bookmarks, yada, yada, yada.

    Have you heard of AxKit ? Neither had I. But I’m looking at tools for developing web applications. I’m lazy so I want to do as little work as possible. AxKit seems like a possible answer. Oh yeah, and it has to use perl ;-) No php or java for me. In fact, this site is all php, but really I’m just using it for SSI. Funny thing is that my server has PHP enabled but not apache SSI. Oh well.

    I made a mistake in the final copy of the IT Review Letter, so I corrected it and re-sent it to the Review board. Fortunately just ahead of the deadline!

    Apparently people are having trouble viewing this site on windows IE. What can I say? It’s web standards compliant. Anyway, I added a little blurb to the top of the page that only shows up for me on IE for OS X, but is hidden in Mozilla/Chimera (i.e. webstandards compliant browsers). Hopefully it will show up for IE win people too. Also, I added a 404 page, that you might like. Or you might not. Anyway, you can see it by entering gibberish into the URL bar after the simonwoodside.com/

    I’ve revised the letter to the IT review board a few times.

    Draft of an Open Letter to the IT Review board at the University of Waterloo. You can print a nice copy directly from the page if you have a web-standards compliant browser (try it) that can handle CSS2.

    Now I’ve added another style sheet to support printing. Try printing this page or just use print preview. Oh yeah, also I installed a hack on the left-hand navbox sidebar, so that it won’t leave trails behind in Chimera (it’s called hackbox if you care). Oh yeah, I looked at this page on a windows with IE 6 (on XP) and it was horrible. If you’re on windows, check out Phoenix which is a Mozilla variant.
