    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.

    What the heck happened to this website? Well, if your answer is nothing, then congratulations, you are using a standards-compliant browser (XHTML and CSS2). If your answer is anything else, get a new browser. I redid the site in CSS2 and XHTML, and, wow, isn’t it nice to get rid of all that tables crap? The only thing I don’t like about XHTML is that I have to close all of my paragraphs. Oh yeah, I only did the root pages, so the FTX and D&D pages won’t verify until I get around to them.

    Added a few Imprint articles that I wrote but weren’t attributed to me by name. Mostly co-op related editorials.

    I just updated the flow of the site a bit by collapsing the Imprint section into the “writings” section. I also updated the Imprint section so that it’s more complete and in chronological order – so those of you interested in reading the complete archive of S.W. Imprint stories will be very pleased I’m sure.

  • FTX on 10.1.5

    Circumstantial evidence (in the form of emails from users…) indicates that FTX 1.5 didn’t work very well on Mac OS X 10.1.5. Well, that’s what I get for upgrading all of my computers to 10.2. However with me making fixes and sending off test copies to the helpful users, it seems I’ve squished the bugs for now. Hence the updated FractalTrees 1.5.1 release. Oh yeah, and it’s open source software now too ;-)

  • FTX 1.5

    Check out the Fractal Trees section of the site for a new version of FractalTrees X . The new version 1.5 is lots more fun to play with. Written in the only practical GUI application environment, Cocoa.

    I just had this crazy idea. Could Mozilla be the next great word processor? I mean, what is there to a word processor? There’s a typing interface, a data format, a display engine, and various support tools. Mozilla is a display engine that follows industry standards very well. Those standards – especially with CSS2 support – make HTML a fully qualified data format for a word processor. Mozilla has an HTML editor that could be modified to make a good typing interface, so all that’s needed are the support tools. The documents are HTML pages with CSS, so that they can be viewed in any browser, published on the web instantly, and edited in a wide variety of editors as long as they support the standards.

    D&D fans rejoice … I just updated the Edion Sourcebook as well.

    Well, the transcript project seems to be dead after getting a good 40 minutes down on paper. However, today I bring you an updated D&D subsite … ye-haw! OK, there’s no new content, but the Edion Handbook is substantially easier to navigate and read online now, and the pages are streamlined.
