e-Mail Update: Happy yesterday, disappointed today

:: e-Mail update
Puhhh, the e-mail works...kind of. Sad I can not include HTML
formatting in the message body. Maybe an idea is to check the email
style class...

:: Blank area
The fix (blank area for the most recent post) only works for MS IE
browsers. Still have to see how to do solve it for other browsers...

Take care!

e-Mail Post: Finally found it!

:: e-Mail Post Test
With this; I am checking if the e-mail posting works. This would be a
nice feature...if it would only work. Since I am lazy, I don't like
logging on to Blogger all the time, just to create a post. If this
works fine, I'll update this blog more frequently...I promise....I do,
I do....

:: Blank Area In Most Recent Post Issue
Also, something Blogger related, I finally figured out what the
problem was why the most recent post always gave me a whole area of
blanks, then only started the blog content at the end of the menu (the
menu layer to the right)!

Well, within the DIV layer called "post" Blogger adds a layer with
clear:both style in all posts. This added a area and "line" until the
end of the menu layer, but only for the most recent post. I was trying
for some time to bypass this by changing the style, change the
floating style...etc. This didn't do too much (but screw it even more
;) ).

Then(!), I was playing around in the .post style section. That proved
to be the source of the problem. I JUST needed to add .width=95% to
the style to solve it. Don't know if I screwed up the style previously
when editing it, but I don't think so...since TheLoneCodeman never,
ever screws up ;))

Take care!


Just thought this was absolutely hilarious..!

Is it 25 or 250 MB?

Today MSN Hotmail announced that the inbox capacity will increase to 250 MB, even though it says 25 MB for me??? Nice I had 2 MB for such a long time, always struggling to keep within this limit. They also say that the limit of outgoing mail is now 10 MB from previously only 1 MB. One small step in the right direction...

In the meantime the capacity at GMail is 2.3 GB and growing. Hotmail has still a long way to go. For the almost 10 years I had my Hotmail account it took to reach the 250 MB (or 25 MB), GMail is doing a better job. While I am writing this I can see it growing all the time. Impressing!

Oohhhhhh, wait. I just now saw the fine print. It says something like; it's first going to be 25 MB for 30 days. THEN, if you're "capable" to handle this huge size, it will be increased to 250 MB.

The unwanted People

Yesterday evening THEY rang the doorbell! I've seen them before examining the area. Wanting new blood (not literally of course), more money, more power! I figured it was just a question of time. The time was yesterday and of course LATE evening at the worst timing - when putting my son to sleep!!! Briiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing, the doorbell went and uaaaaaaahhh went my son. For f@#$#$ sake!

No matter where you are, you will always find three things - Coca Cola, McDonald's and, this is the only BAD thing of the three, Jehovah's Witnesses. Doesn't matter,
you can be sitting on the most remote beach in Sierra Leone - one of the most poor country in the world - and all of a sudden a little boy is there asking me if I want to buy a bottle of Coke. That bottle of Coke tasted damn nice, I can tell you!

You can be driving for hours through the roughest and most remote area of the
Australian outback and all of a sudden you'll the M sign in the horizon. Two hours later you find you’re self driving up to McDonald's. That Big Mac tasted damn nice, I can tell you that!

THEN, where ever you live - Sweden, Belgium, USA, Australia or, I bet, even in Sierra Leone at the worst time, you'll have two people (why are they always at least two?) ringing your doorbell wanting to talk about the situation in the world (that's what they start with). Never will they say "Hi, we're from Jehovah's Witnesses and we want you in our sect! We refuse
giving blood to our sick children and you have to give us all your money too. Interested?". No, they start by wanting to have a dialog, first and only time; when you're hooked it's all a monolog! It’s always about the problems in the world. I actually had to ask them where they came from, even though I knew, and after a long "explanation" it was confirmed. Are they ashamed? Do they know that 99.9% of the people find them to be like hemorrhoids - a pain in the butt? I actually wonder how successful it can be, how many lost souls, depressed, weak people falls for it? Would you?

I think I will visit all 'churches' of Jehovah's Witnesses and ask them if they want to join my sect..ehh..Organization called PAJW - People Against Jehovah's Witnesses! Every week I'd go there at the worst time. Ohh, then I have to print out some flyers, create a logo... Cool!

How would the world look like without people to hate?

Fedora Core 4 is here

We've heard about the next Windows version...for a long(horn) time. It's going to be released any time now. You just wait... In the meantime here is a product which is actually comming out with new realeases - Red Hat Fedora.

The latest Linux (free) version from Red Hat is here - the Fedora
Core 4. It's based on the Linux Kernel 2.6.11. Maybe the most interesting feature is that it now can use power processors and also run on 32-bit and 64-bit chips.

One of the many applications in this release is the Xen application - which makes it possible to run multiple operating systems - virtual installations. Xen is competing against VMware and MS virtual machine applications.
