*tests on a bunch of browsers*

*notices weird display glitches in Internet Explorer for Windows*

*spends two and a half hours digging through the CSS*

*bashes head into desk*

*reads up on Explorer’s lame, braindead, broken CSS rendering*

*spends another half hour beating on CSS*


Jumping Jiminy Christ on a pogo stick, how in the hell did Microsoft ever become the dominant force in the IT industry with such poorly-written, inherently broken, crap software? Internet Explorer…what a festering pile of crapware that browser is! Working around bugs in its CSS support is something of a blood sport in Web circles.

See, this is why all my other Web sites don’t use CSS.

*gets it to work, finally*

More accomplishments and stuff!

I’ve been having a great deal of fun tinkering with this RSS feed concentrator, and there’s enough interesting stuff on it now I’ve decided to make it generally available and see what happens. So I now give you:

HackerSluts, the feed concentrator for sex and relationship blogs. I’ve even put a neat little “suggest a feed” form on the front page and everything. 🙂

It’s still not 100% finished, though it seems that Web projects seldom are. I do at some point want to turn it into a fully multiuser system (so that people can create their own unique logins, arrange feeds the way they’d like to see them, and have the system store their preferences and keep track of their read and unread feeds), but the basic aggregator package I’m using isn’t set up for that, so it’d likely take some pretty major coding. Eventually I’ll also make the display of the unread feeds prettier and more flexible.

But hey, if anyone out there knows someone who might be interested, or who has a feed they might like to submit, spread the word!
