Viewing by month: February 2003

Dinner was good

Had some more Sushi tonight (that's twice in less than a week pops ;). I wonder if there are any decent Sushi places in Toronto. Anyone? Anyone? Sushi?

Passport or Mugshot?

Passport or mugshot?I've come to the realization that the passport clerks must take the same photography class as the guys at the DMV.

Anyway, I'm now "official" and ready to go to Canada for TODCON. What is it about a Passport that makes you feel <hick>bona-fiiiide</hick>. Is it that we see Bond walking around with one, or is it just seeing our pictures on an official government document that other countries recognize.

Another facelift...

That's right, I shuffled things around some more. Why? Why not?! It's my blog after all ;)

One thing that you'll notice right off is that you're stuck with my gorgeous yellow (though I did tone it down a bit). Why? IE6's atrocious support for alpha transparency in PNG files. Why does this affect me? I'm not willing to do CSS hacks or server side switching to replace my nav images. Even if I use transparent gifs for the headers and nav images, switching the background to a nice cool purple leaves small yellow artifacts around my snazzy anti-aliased text.

When will the style switcher be back? Either a) a new version of IE comes out that supports full png alpha transparency or b) I get bored enough to revert to the methods I just said I wouldn't revert to.

And now you know... the reeeeest of the storey...
