11211 Tech Note

I’ve recently upgraded the blogging software that keeps this running, and it has not been without hitches. One of those, I have been informed, is that the site looks worse than ever on Internet Explorer. Since I a) don’t use Windows very often and b) use IE even less often, I hadn’t noticed. But I checked and it’s true.

Everything seems to be OK with Firefox, Safari or Chrome on Windows XP, and it’s possible that IE8 behaves properly, but IE7 (and I assume earlier versions) are definitely not OK. If the content you are viewing is half a page down and you are not seeing a little icon for the NAG party on the right of the screen, something is wrong with your browser. Switch to Firefox (or any other modern standards-compliant browser – it works fine in ) and things should be better.

But I will try to fix it.
