IE Rendering Problems Fixed

Umm…why didn’t anyone tell me that this site looks like crap on IE7 and below??? I made the change to the new layout back in July and according to my traffic stats, a whooping 18% of my visitors use IE7 when viewing this site. I don’t know why it never occurred to me to check […]

Dressing Up My Blog for Halloween

Call me a party pooper, but I have never been into Halloween. In fact, the last time I donned a costume on October 31st was back in middle school. I was tempted to go all out this year — dress in a slutty outfit (because when else can I dress like a streetwalker and not […]
