Super Sunday

I know I said I won’t blog about my boring life. But I just ran 10km for the first time today and I’ll damn well write about it if I want to. So� um� it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

After lunch I went looking for Eric A Meyer’s Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, also for the first time. But it was out of stock, expectedly. I have almost never been able to walk into any bookstore and just get the book I want. They always have to order it in. Oh well.

Then spent the rest of the day tweaking the stylesheet selector and the styles that go with it. So if pink makes you puke, go ahead and pick some other yummy flavour over on the right column or tell me your favourite colour. Web safe or the dangerous delinquent ones.

Is this a super productive week or what? Added a new “Recently commented” feature. Testing it out now. I must say that the support forum over at Movable Type is really useful.

10 km is certainly worth writing about. Personally, after 5 km, I’m on the floor totally spent!

Hi Elijah, glad to see you back again.

It was a good day. The weather was overcast and I was somewhat prepared. You see, it was the day of the Sheares Bridge Run which I signed up for, but decided not to go at the last minute. That’s why I was so determined to finish my own 10k.

Somedays I’m floored before 5km. ;-)

I’ve actually met Molly Holzschlag and Eric Meyer last year. I attended one of their workshops early last year in San Francisco.

It was quite interesting but it was really heavy in HTML and CSS coding. You’re right, though. There probably aren’t many examples for an expert like yourself but for me it was fine.

I still have the notes from the workshop.

I could send you a copy if you like.

Wow, my very first addict!!! Gotta go add all the little things that I’ve been meaning to add. For your surfing pleasure.

Notice anything different?

Added SmartyPants curly quotes to the blog.

And switched my recently commented column to a server side include so that it would stop screwing up.

And now, with a prettified search page.

Well, today I finally got the Little Green Footballs’ referrer script tp work. Then I realise I can’t get it to track referrers for all the pages. And decided to switch back to the one by Textism instead.

Check it out.

On a down note, because I had to change all my page extensions to .php, I probably would not be getting many referrers from google, since they have them down as .html pages.

Illustrated MT Templates

Posted by: Karen at November 17, 2003 08:00 PM

woah…sounds extremely complicated. i don’t think i’m ever going to get my own blog any time soon.

Posted by: Elijah at November 19, 2003 09:32 AM

Note to self: You really need to allow people to search comments as well. There as much content in the comments as the posts.

How to kill referrer spam. Die Paris Hilton!

Posted by: Karen at January 29, 2004 06:22 AM

Fixed up the date and category archives so that they do not show the entire entry and take forever to load. Also thinking of posting up some web stats graphs if anyone is interested.

Lenny installed Jay Allen’s ingenious MT Blacklist some weeks ago. Works like a charm. Kill comment spam! Die spammers!
