Re: the doctor visit.

I love to harass my pharmacy. I carry in my pocket the cost details of each prescription I am on. Not by the cost of the script in the amount dispensed, but by the cost per gallon (at their retail price). This irked one of the pharmacists who said I did the math wrong. He was right, I did do the mat...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi Since I run Linux, my newest mobo, an Asus F2A85-M2 with AMD A4-6320 CPU, does not have a driver in the Linux Kernel. I did manually install the driver for it, and forgot. So when the new kernel upgrade came along, I ended up with the black screen of death, and couldn't figure out how to get...

Re: the doctor visit.

If you press the tab real hard, and jerk the plastic blister packet out of the box completely, they are a little easier to deal with. Since you press the pills out from the front, having the days on the back are sorta meaningless. I knock them out along the narrow width because it is easier, my hand...

Re: the doctor visit.

Back home, we had two relatives who owned drug stores, not part of any chain. In later years, the smaller one finally did become part of the Rexall chain, but only because of his suppliers. Do to his location, Jim had the larger store to serve more clients, and also had better deals with his supplie...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi You don't have to respond to the rest of my drivel. I'm picking up a little bit more with each website and/or template I study. Thank you very much, I copied the coding samples. I will experiment with them. By the way, you cannot use </ br> in an ordered or unordered list in XHTML STRICT, no...

Re: the doctor visit.

Sounds like things work a whole lot differently over here. When we go to the doctors office, we go straight to the nurses station, to get a clipboard with papers to fill out and sign, removing all responsibility from the doctor, the company, the plumber who installed the faucets, and the carpet peop...

Re: Mobile Friendly

I spoke too soon, just got this back from Comcast "Anything that is processed on the client side can be used, for example: javascript, java applets, flash (without any server-side scripting), etc. What will not work is anything processed on the server, for example: CGI, PHP, Database, java servlets,...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi - Jumped back in to say I downloaded 22 examples of responsive HTML5 templates. All 22 of them used javascript. So far i have not found a single one that works without javascript. I did find one thing of interest, but don't know if they did so by using javascript. Somehow they are adding the...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi Thank you for your observations. I agree with you on my list of links after the fold, named 'The Castle Archives.' These were added 'by request' at the time I rewrote my website to XHTML/CSS, so folks could jump straight to the articles without going to the Paged Index first. I don't think y...

Re: Trans-Eurasian belt Development (TEPR)

In older areas of our city back home, you would find miles of what we call 'row houses' where every one was identical. Over the years, many had new facades or additions which changed their cookie cutter appearance. Even in the late '60s and early '70s subdivisions, only a few home styles were availa...

Re: Trans-Eurasian belt Development (TEPR)

I thought Cookie Cutter building designs went out in the early 1950s? We still see a few in apartment complexes, but at least they try to make the facade a little different on each. The image Pil posted reminds me of our government housing projects. Where 90% of our police force is summoned to on a ...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi Thank you! I bookmarked these sites as well. I am studying all I can about responsive web pages, and as you said, am in the slow process of relearning and rewriting my smaller personal website first. There are so many new features available in HTML5, I think it would be wise to rebuild using...

Re: Trans-Eurasian belt Development (TEPR)

Some of the older buildings are not to hot either, if not maintained properly. I'm sure you've seen long solid fences around things like junk and lumber yards made of vertical steel roofing panels. One of these down here, although still the vertical steel, had an artist paint the entire thing so it ...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi Not to long ago I took a couple of my web pages and changed them to simply HTML doctype which made it read as HTML5. I saw no difference in the displayed pages, except for one image which now filled the width properly, when before it wouldn't. Running it through W3C with that doctype produce...

Re: Trans-Eurasian belt Development (TEPR)

Oh, I agree. Even down here, I saw the log cabin my wife's mother was born in torn down for a parking lot, and the parking lot didn't even reach as far as where it was sitting. Many historic buildings have come down to make way for something no where near as glamorous, or as well constructed. Where ...

Re: Mobile Friendly

Hi Yogi The problem I would have with moving to a different host is I had to drop my domain name when I went with Comcast a decade ago now, and use their domain name. When I requested they set my site up using my domain name, I was told at that time that Personal Webpages cannot use our own domain n...

Hi Yogi - Well I guess I don't have to worry about learning how to use the htaccess file, comcast does not support the only two things I thought I needed it for. They also do not allow any side server scripting on personal pages. Yet the instructions they provide say to upload your .htaccess file as...

Man Oh Man Yogi, have you opened a can of worms for me to deal with, hi hi... I have been studying ever since I left here, and missed doing most of my evening round of work. It also looks like I'm a LONG WAY from Optimizing my Desktop version before I can start on getting the Mobile part acceptable....
