I wanted to change the text of visited links on payformystay.com, using CSS. In the offer summary, I wanted to change the link text "Check it out!" with "Check it out again!" after the user had indeed checked out the offer.

WordPress 3.2 introduced an admin bar, which is fixed at the top of the window when you're logged in. An annoying side-effect that has been bugging me for some time is that, although this pushed down most of my content, HTML elements that used absolute positioning stayed in there old place. This didn't look particularly good, but I left it hanging for a long time because it only affected logged in users (that is: either me or Halfgaar).

Yesterday, while helping Caloe with the website for her company De Buitenkok, I came across the mother of all stupid bugs in Safari. Me having recently announced payformystay.com, I loaded it up in Apple's hipster browser only to notice that the CSS wasn't loaded. Oops!

On Oktober, the 25th, in what will be known to future generations as a historical move, Wiebe changed the A record of www.aihato.nl to point to the new production site running at Ytec. The new site, a collaboration by Ytec and me, based on WordPress, has been in development since May. At least, that's when I started taking notes. There had been some discussion, wire-framing and design done before that time.

In this WordPress installation I have a problem with my admin menu. If I add clear: left; to the rules for #adminmenu li.menu-top it appears to be fixed.

Stichting EcoSafe is a Dutch foundation for the safe-keeping of the funds that are necessary for the maintenance of hardwood plantations. In July of 2006, together with Johan Ockels, I created a website for the Foundation. Johan was responsible for the organization of the whole process. This went very smooth and the website ended up being an emblem of simplicity and clarity. That's why I wanted to blog a bit about it now, even though there are a few things that I'd probably end up doing different if I were to start from scratch. [There's actually a disturbing number of things for which this is true, I'm coming to notice.]

My friend, Wiebe, keeps his website in Subversion. (Always keep your project files in version management or you'll be sorry.) He used to manually track the date with the last significant change in each file (because who cares about typos, right?). But, of course, he kept forgetting to update this when he actually made such changes. So, he decided that he wanted to publish the full SVN log for each page.

After upgrading to WordPress 2.5.x, I had to fall back on a stock theme because my old customization of the Sandbox theme no longer worked with the upgrade. But, then, it was time to redo my theme anyway. So here you're looking at the first version of my new theme. I might have let it stabilize some more before putting it on-line, but who cares? My reader maybe? Let's just hope he or she doesn't use IE. ;-)

Jeroen Dekker, a friend and photographer, has recently, on May the 5th, put his website on concert photography on-line. (Go check it out! He has some great pictures there.)
