Lesson

I re­al­ly like this re­design. Although for what­ev­er rea­son, IE doesn’t like pars­ing it like a nor­mal browser should. That is why there is an un­cod­ed break be­tween the flame ban­ner and the div con­tain­ing all the text. for what­ev­er rea­son as well, though the im­ages are the same width as the div, the lay­er ap­pears to be one or two pix­els longer. Only in IE that i have seen how­ev­er. The site looks per­fect in Firefox. 

Something hap­pened last night that scared the tar out of me and pissed me off at my­self to no end. I up­load­ed the re­designed pages and when I ran the re­build in MT, some mis­cod­ing on my part start­ed to eat my archives. I thought I had lost a full year of en­tries. I checked 5 or so ran­dom in­di­vid­u­al archive files and they all looked the same. the mas­ter archive in­dex al­so linked to all dead files. thank­ful­ly i was saved by my dai­ly en­try archives, which i have nev­er linked to but ex­ist nonethe­less. on­ce i calmed down and re­al­ized this, all was well and i got some sleep. i’m al­ways go­ing to back­up my archives be­fore this. MT has rec­om­mend­ed it, but i nev­er re­al­ly lis­tened. this call was too close for me not to re­spect the in­struc­tions in the fu­ture.
