What fun. Opera (5.0 for Linux, anyway) not only displays this site improperly -- it completely ignores the CSS styles within the <td> tags, resulting in no background at all for any of the node titles on any of the pages -- but is also inserts several ^Ms in a textarea box, which really horks things up between <code> tags when viewed with code-wrapping off (looks like several blank lines between each line of code, making it difficult to read). So now, I gotta go back and edit all of my nodes (in Netscape , just to make sure), taking out all extraneous ^Ms. Well, I don't *have* to, but I am, anyway. Yay.

For some strange reason, this popped into my head while I was mixing up my takeout Szechuan chicken the other night:

while (<SZECHUAN>) { next if /onion|mushroom/i; print RICE; }
OK, well, actually it was only the 'next if...' line that spontaneously appeared in my head. Is this a sign of geekiness, when one starts thinking of everyday activities in terms of computer code?
More to come ... when I feel like it.
