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.

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

Posted June 3rd, 2012 at 07:52 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...

The Papyrus font is now gone in Windows 8

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 10:34 PM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Good riddance? That font sure looked out of place, then again. I do think that anything using that font will look screwed up on computers running Windows 8 or later...

Also, one neat things I have noticed is that Comic Sans MS now has true italics, and not merely slanted letterforms. It's especially noticeable with its lowercase t's.

Testing testing not-so-experimental CSS properties

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 09:43 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

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

Strange things for today, eh?

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 01:25 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

As it turns out, the day I was accepted to some university was also the day I first encountered a site where browsers too modern will screw up.

Good news: I'm now studying in Computer Science.

Bad news: Why do I have to bother with IE7 Compat Mode while logging in for student pass stuff? Then again, maintaining websites must be hard enough as is.
