Hi! This is Mooquackwooftweetmeow, a collection of stuff by Greg K Nicholson.
In the category of Changeblog: The archive is getting increasingly heavy, so I've knocked up a Recent Entries page.
It's been on my to-do list since Rakaz published his guide to moving from Atom 0.3 to Atom 1.0, but now I've modified the Mooquackwhatnotbot to produce an Atom 1.0 feed.
I've killed the Style Switcher - see? It's just an empty shell of a page. This is mainly because I've killed the multiple styleage.
OK, so I spent the last hour designing Sirius' logo. It is quite difficult to come up with distinct designs that look like stars and are viewable on a light background... so I've slightly cheated.
I just remembered XHTML ids aren't allowed to begin with numbers, so it's probably not a good idea to give weblog entries permalinks like mine.
I did manage to get the XML+XSL-based jiggery-pokery for The Twaddle working - quite nicely, actually. Getting the entire contents of the content field onto the page took a little bit of effort, as described on the mozillaZine forums.
I'm now using the aforementioned RSS Reader to read this weblog. So it has to be valid Atom, the content must validate when RSSified, and still validate when XHTMLified. Thus, to save hassle relating to escape characters and other such technicalities, I'm now using straight apostrophes as quotes. It's ugly, but it works.
A while ago I added a print stylesheet to Mooquackwooftweetmeow; now, The Twaddle's had the same treatment. On Saturday I also gave The Twaddle a site icon, so the site's now approaching Mooquackwooftweetmeow in completeness. Does this mean v1.0 any time soon? Probably not...maybe.
