La nova Rubujo: The new Rubujo goes on-line

See http://chemoelectric.org or http://chemoelectric.livejournal.com. The new design isn’t based on any of the pre-fabricated styles. (My old style was a hacked-up version of ‘Haven’.)

Recommended fonts are the DejaVu and Fontin families, both of which are freebies.

Konqueror seems not to handle the new design very well, at all. Probably not very many people do their ordinary browsing in Konqueror, however. In Opera and Firefox there seem to be no such troubles.

The comments pages could use some work.

If you want you can let me know about bugs you encounter, or how my design sucks.

I haven’t made any changes to policy, even though I didn’t keep the links to an explanation of the policy. Here is the policy: If you are a logged-in LiveJournal user, you can simply post your comment. If you are a non-logged-in person (‘anonymous’), then your IP address is recorded and I will screen the posting; usually I allow the posting.

If you read this blog but don't have a LiveJournal account, then consider getting one. That way you can set up your account so that you are notified by e-mail if I post a new entry, you can be notified by e-mail that someone has replied to your comment, you can be notified by e-mail if someone has contributed to a given thread, etc. This LiveJournal is smart stuff; it makes those other blogging and community systems look like a vat of Li’l Lisa Slurry.

overflow: visible;

Setting ‘overflow: visible;’ in all of my CSS rules seems to have fixed the problems the Rubujo had in Konqueror and to a lesser degree in other browsers. The main undesired effect was frames-like scrollbars appearing.

I thought ‘visible’ was the default, but maybe it doesn’t work out that way.

(As in the current implementation of The Crud Factory (http://crudfactory.com/), the scroll bars aren’t actually the notorious HTML frames.)
