Yiiha! Way to go, Bethany Decker, who created the petition in the first place!

HTML 4.01 compliance…again

Posted by on Tuesday, 18 January, 2005

Finally… after a few weeks break, I managed to convert even Sebastian’s pages into HTML 4.01 Strict; so the whole webpage should be fixed now (apart from the areas beyond my control, such as this blog utility)

Anyway, after reading some stuff on the web I have re-thought my task of making it XHTML compliant. As it turns out, that is not something to strive for.

:EDIT:
I forgot about those darn Scancup-pages… *sigh* Anyway, I will redesign that part of the webpage anyway, so no need to polish up the current coding.

Royal Shopping

Posted by on Tuesday, 4 January, 2005

Well, as I haven’t updated in a few weeks I though I’d generate tons of new material today…

When reading the online version of Swedish “newspaper” Expressen, I stumbled upon something amusing. It was a list of the shops/brands that the Swedish princess Madeleine frequently visits. How they know she *frequently* visits them is beyond me, but I guess they have a shitload of journalists whose only job is to follow the royal family around town.

Anyway, here’s the list. I thought I’d start to spread the rumors around the world, so everyone, including people here in Japan, can start buying the SAME CLOTHES AS PRINCESS MADELEINE! WOW COOL IT ROXXORS. :laugh:

Anna Holtblad
Yanuk
Zara
Gucci
Emporio Armani
Karen Millen
Tara Jarmon
Rizzo
Filippa K
Louis Vuitton
Massimo Dutti
Marzio
Renato Nucci

+ a few shops which sell a various of brands, but these were not necessarliy specified.

Conclusion? She dresses like the average Japanese woman (except for Anna Hultblad and Filippa K, which is not available over here). 😛

Meaningless Entry (again)

Posted by on Tuesday, 4 January, 2005

So…for the first time in about two years, I assembled a new computer again.

My parents were going to give my sister a PC for Christmas, and I got the task of buying it. Naturally, I apted for buying parts and assembling it – to get the best value/performance ratio (and the coolest computer…)

Anyway, when I started looking for parts etc. I realized that being out of the computer business for nearly two years REALLY makes you lose touch with what is cutting edge technology etc. When I buily my own computer early in 2003, it was fairly high-end with a 2.4 GHz P4, 333 MHz DDR memory, UATA/133 harddrive, DVD-R drive and an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP card.

Well, the computer I assembled for Christmas cost slightly less than mine (excluding the Samsung 172X monitor) but definately kicks its ass.

It is a 2.66 GHz Celeron J, 400 MHz DDR memory, SATA harddrive, DVD+/-RW DL drive and an ATI Radeon X600 Pro PCI-X card.

All this built into this sweet box, with the latest Intel i915 chipset:
