Cascading Style Sheets

Welcome, this is just me playing around with Cascading Style Sheets on this website to get a nice crisp clean feel that is written to validate to the W3C standards for both XHTML 1.0 Transitional and CSS. This page has been tested against the following three versions of Microsofts Internet Explorer (2 x Versions of IE 6 and 1 x Version of IE 5.01) and it renders good, with the page looking as I intended:

Internet Explorer Version: 6.0.2800.1106

Browser Detected: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6
Display Resolution: 1280x1024
Colour Depth: 4294967296
userAgent = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)
userLanguage = en-gb
appName = Microsoft Internet Explorer
appVersion = 4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)
navPlatform = Win32

Browser Detected: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6

appVersion = 4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
navPlatform = Win32

I have also checked this page against the following three Gecko based browsers, Mozilla 1.3b, Mozilla Firebird 0.7 and Netscape Navigator 7.1. It renders excellently and is definitely looking good in all of these.

I have also checked this page against Opera 7.21 - a very slick browser and it looks great.

Opera Version 7.21

Browser Detected: Opera 7.21
Display Resolution: 1280x1024
Colour Depth: 4294967296
userAgent = Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.21 [en]
userLanguage = en
appName = Microsoft Internet Explorer
appVersion = 4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)
navPlatform = Win32

Browser Detected: Opera 7.21
Display Resolution: 1024x768
Colour Depth: 4294967296
userAgent = Opera/7.21 (Windows NT 5.0; U) [en]
userLanguage = en
appName = Opera
appVersion = 7.21 (Windows NT 5.0; U)
navPlatform = Win32

You are using the following browser:

So if your browser does not match any of the three previous IE versions, the four Gecko based browsers or Opera 7.21 as defined above I am not too sure how the page might look for you...

Hey, I only have access to a limited set of browsers :)

Spam

To find out all the details of when I re registered a dormant domain and got more than I bargained for in terms of volume junk email check out Spam~ A cautionary tale of a dormant domains re registration and you will hopefully find it to be an entertaining and informative read.

Isoqlog

Isoqlog is a handy tool that formats qmails log files into HTML output. I took some time out to tidy up the code a little and ensure that the HTML would get through W3Cs HTML Validator. The guys over at Enderunix have incorporated my work into their Isoqlog Development Version. Here is the Changelog.

Printer Friendly

Often I have found a good document that I actually need to print off and work through offline as I am sure you have also. It is just so irritating when it is not in a printer friendly format :( Especially given that it is usually quite trivial to arrange using CSS. If you do need to print this page - highly unlikely I know, it is printer friendly thanks to the extra CSS I have created :)

Server Migration

After an an uptime in excess of 300 days on my old Slackware Linux box, 3:27pm up 308 days, 2:34, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00 , I decided to upgrade to a more saner system, namely FreeBSD my favourite operating system.
Enjoy!
