On having a cold
Saturday, January 28, 2006

I have a typical New England winter cold... and have spent the day snuffling and petting my cats. Aside from the sniffles, sneezing, and lack of physical energy, however, I feel pretty well and have taken the time to try and catch up on my organization, etc.

The big achievement of the day is that I've moved my various websites to an (almost) table-less design. This is supposed to be a good thing so I guess I feel good about it. The only thing I'm confused about is that I have two DIVs, one of which is supposed to take up 14% of the width and the other is supposed to take up 80%. When the page gets a bit narrow, however, the layout engine (in Safari, Firefox and Omniweb (my favorite -- just look at those cool tabs)) is placing the DIVs so that they are on top of one another rather than always next to each other... I'm not sure what the scoop is there but it's table-less so it's good <smile>.

I've also started to look at some of the recent patches I've been sent for ASDF-Install. I'm still testing things but you can find out how to check out the latest unstable version via Darcs if you're interested.
