So for those of you following at home, I'm playing around a bit with the
layout here. There is this layout you are looking at right now.
This page has a navigation bar along
the right side, pointing to the individual links for the past seven days
(none of the links work by the way. It's using a URL scheme that I'm
planning on using but isn't functional yet). I did it this way for users of
Lynx—it lays out tables that go left to right top to bottom; not the best
way to support tables, but hey, it tries. And I felt that innundating a
Lynx user with a list of links is bad. Better to bring the content first
then a list of (possibly) useless links.
But I did this page, and under Lynx it
actually isn't too bad. The first link is to the content (if in fact, the
link works). And at the default 80x24 TTY screen size, there's only two,
maybe three screens full of links before you get to the content. Oddly
enough, I like it.
what do you think,
oh home audience?
Obligatory Contact Info
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
