Comments so far:

I'm higher than 800x600 but there's something wrong with the right sidebar. And what happened to the side background?

I think I may need to make the green on the glasses blue. :/

Right...comments made on straightwhiteguy.com work fine....if you comment from WWW.straightwhiteguy.com, you get an internal server error....hmmm..and double posting is the after effect...like you see above..

I'm at 1024 x 768 and half of the right side bar is covered up by the blog entries. The font looks considerably larger than before too.

Other than that, it looks good.

Hey, John....that was a low blow...Bartender, were you in the Navy??...heh..

Ok, well it looks normal at http://swg. I got the internal server error too from the www. but the comment still posted.

Me too, Suzi...I have notified the proper authorities...they are checking into it..;)

I'll let you know how it looks when I look at it on my PC. Now I'm on my new Mac, and the only difference I'm getting on the Safari browser is the new logo at the top and the absence of the ugly mug... ooops, author photo on the top of the sidebar.

Like the logo, though... Booze is better than the galaxies and dice I have on mine!

Looking using the PC now. Yikes, the mug is back on the left sidebar!!!! (Just kidding, Eric!!)

As an FYI, Safari doesn't render your page properly when using the "www.straightwhiteguy.com" address. Perhaps there's some kind of style sheet issue??? Damned if I know...

Main site looks great on my PC, though!

I'm at 1024x768 256 colors, in straightwhiteguy.com. The site looks as advertised with the exception of the camo backgrounds in the sidebars. I'll go look at it from www. and let you know any differences.

I got the same error 500 message but my comment posted. The comments are doing the weird text eating thing on the roll down? It doesn't do that in the test site. However, this code has been known to do it in other sites. I don't kow how to fix it... yet!

800x600 viewer fix coming shortly... as soon as eric has time to send me some files. I'll redirect via a sidebar button to the old format index and stylesheet until I can recode the main site.

POS Referrers script is messing up the right sidebar. We'll need to move it to under the body posts. It did the same thing to my site so I just took it out. I mean did Dairy Date refer back here 70 times in 24 hours? I have trouble believing that, but ya never know!

The formatting buttons need a face too. Hmmm. Might have to work on that from inside this site Eric. I copied the code from my editing screen and it may point back to a local path.

Merry New Year Everybody!!1

hell with it, looks pretty snazzy to me! Best to you and the little woman this new year ( ps - especially like the martini glass motif but isn't that a Southern Comfort bottle? Phew, but that takes me back...how trashy am I? SoCo and mountain dew, baby!

Victoria:...Darling...that ACTUALLY is a Talisker and Bowmore bottle...ehehehe...beHAVE....oh, and Happy New Year!!

Hmm... I'd be happy if Diary Date had 70 visitors in 24 hours! My whole website gets 700 + a day, but not the blog itself. It's mostly the stuff about spyware and the new spyware blog. (self plug)

Suzi: Please don't think I was dogging your site. I just picked a name out of the blue for an example of how accurate the script is. But, just for that, I will go over to your site and see what's going on.

posted by: The Bartender on January 1, 2004 01:02 AM

Bartender, no problem. I didn't think that. I was surprised that it said 70 too.
