TwigZone's moved to a better place, and so does this blog.

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.
Rants Excuse me while I go off ranting off...

Do you want to know why Twiggy is all glum today?

Posted July 19th, 2012 at 6:01 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Just what's going on with Pokémon Groups these days?!

I know something strange is going on these days. People are quite the fickle one - sign up, then bolt away. I've seen a lot of deleted posts in threads... including my clubs. Whatever is happening there, it is going to harm everyone involved in the health of Pokémon Groups. It's one thing to not like a group. It's another thing to pretend that you're in a group for show. Nobody wants to be the person that just sits there, huh?...

The only thing I wish for in PokéCommunity right now is...

Posted June 3rd, 2012 at 7:52 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Just to get one single username change.

If only I could get rid of these eighth notes in my username...

There are two obstacles, though.

First, someone else that hasn't been active since 2008 or so has already taken the username.

Second, username changes are in a hiatus indefinitely because it'll crash the servers. (Unoptimized databases?)

It's a long dream...

Testing testing not-so-experimental CSS properties

I wonder whether I can get away with not prefixing anything, even with these so-called "cutting-edge" CSS?

Well? I think I like the current state of browser competition.

The browser is not what you expect. (The tags are a big giveaway)

This might be the first step going away from vendor prefix hell

A problem has been detected and your brain has been shut down to prevent damage
to your sanity.

The problem seems to be caused by the following thread:
Buneary's Easter Eggstravaganza 2012


If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen,
restart your brain. If this screen appears again, follow

I must be one of these guys that always code for older browsers

Posted March 19th, 2012 at 4:11 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

In a nutshell: Code for everything worthy. Test in everything worthy. Work it out. Internet Explorer and Opera count, too.

Heck, you know how I roll when it comes to designing pages and div blocks around here and there. I take a pragmatic approach to things like designing pages, and you know, "don't break the web for the users", huh? Whatever it takes, I try to make sure that pages and content work well for any browser deemed good enough. Some people might think, "why...
