last night i got the core front page down from 17kb to 13kb, and the stylesheet from 8kb to 5kb. today i got the individual core archive pages down from 19kb to 15kb. i’ll get to fixing the monthly archive pages soon. enough of this for now, though. *reasonably satisfied* and today’s 04/04/04.
—…[elapsed time]…— okay. core monthly archive pages went from 17kb to 12kb.
i began, yesterday, to revamp the site in terms of this whole ‘web standards’ business that all my idol sites are about.. so i’m doing what i can to veer away from tables, and trying to more rapidly digest and impress css into my whole thinking and implementation… so far, it seems that to properly do that, i’ll have to at least lightly redseign it while i’m at it. i don’t want to change too much tho… i shouldn’t have to. but yes.. i dunno how much time i’ll get to focus on that in this week…
i’m going to london. :) bahbe’s taking me. for our anniversary/valentine’s day. i’ve never been to europe.. i figure it’s about time. it was gonna happen eventually, and will happen again in the future, but why not a brief interlude now, with the one person i’ll be happy to go away with. it’ll be good. no, it’ll be really good. i’m gonna go eat chocolate chip cookies right now, just to punctuate that. !
i redid contentsub and contentsub2 is up (tho it still needs some help in the side right.. but i’m not even sure i’ll use it, so why spend another four hours on that one…) and please do let me know which of the three on the ‘tagline’.
textile installed. happiness.
humph! fixed in two minutes what spent me hours last night trying to find and figure out on contentsub page. i only just read that article that states creative thinking is dependent on sleep. hwell!
alright, so i didn’t even really try to sleep early/at a decent hour this time…
no one was around to keep me company and therefore encourage me to also sleep, and even so, my plan was to work on the contentsub concept page up til about 2am, tops. but i got really stuck with two errors on it.. and it’s now pretty much 4:30am and i still don’t have one of the errors solved (the last, stupid thing.. the double vertical line up at the top displays properly in IE, but not in opera… which is a bit of a turnaround, since everything else has been looking even better in opera than in IE…). but i’m gonna toss that for tonight, and try to resist trying to fix it first thing in my day. i really do have other things to work on. and i have been. i just don’t get stuck on them like on this. there’s some passion here; self-motivated anyway..it has to be; there’s no other motivation for this.
i’m gonna have to clean my room eventually.
g’night. (the really sucky thing is, i’m tired, but not sleepy. so despite the unhappy hour, i’ll prolly be awake, lying in bed fora while.. again.)
…now i’m not really sure… but i was still getting popups occasionally, with sitemeter out… the only thing left to kill would be the tagboard.. and that’s fine… so it’s gone for now… it could be my browser’s fault for all of this… we’ll see, anyway… i had planned to move tagboard to an isolated popup window or something, anyway. and it’s not like anyone’s seeing this site as of yet anyway, and the only person who does, never tags me anyhow.. so that’s aiight.
sitemeter seems to have been responsible for giving my site popups. which is not acceptable. even if the total amount of people dealing with this site, is 2. popups, without direct permission/instruction from me, should not ever ever appear as a result of anything i orchestrate. so it’s out. …please see the next post in regard to this matter
a big thankyou to Jennifer for her script and assistance in putting smilies on my comment forms. what happiness. i’ll probably put them in my regular entries at some point too.. for now.. i am simply pleased.
well these are the two current layouts… very minor differences between them… i’ll eat breakfast on it or something… come back and go with one or the other.
and it seems the above links will not open in internet explorer, for reasons unknown. they work flawlessly in opera. i got them straight from a previous site i built, and in that one it works flawlessly in explorer. i haven’t had breakfast yet. and i never went back to bed.
so here’s the reluctant version of those links:
