My host had a wee bit o' unexpected downtime. All downtime will be expected from now on.
May 2001 Archives
Feed dialog with David Gelernter. I've said it before, I'll say it again: Gelernter isn't going to change the world by targetting the corporate desktop with closed source software, no matter how good his ideas.
This site now validates as HTML 4.01 Strict. The CSS doesn't quite validate, because I got lazy and used colour names instead of hex values.
Good news, bad news: David Duchovny gone from X-Files, The Lone Gunman cancelled, live action The Tick given a primetime slot.
My 'c' key keeps sticking. This means I keep trying to go to .om sites.
CSS Validators are good things. I just fixed a handful of errors related to syntax that cleared up a few problems I was experiencing. And here I was blaming mozilla.
The excellent International Herald Tribune site, which used to be a bit flaky under mozilla, now works flawlessly. IHT is still one of the best news sites on the web.

Openwave's upcoming WAP browser. It's supposed to ship mid-2001, too. I think that wireless data needs to be instant-on to start being truly compelling - the most frustrating thing for me currently is the connection wait. Bring on 2.5G!
