Corrupt a Wish - Yet Another Season (4th by the way)

Ok, we're back to another thread of corrupt a wish.

Oh! One more forum rule, by the request of a moderator. Add comments, don't reply, so we don't screw up the layout.

Wish Granted, but then the army replaced the police and they were even dumber than the dumb polices.

I wish my PC was able to run Linux with net access without having to recompile any modules or installing a new network card.

I wish I knew what is stopping this code from making the list horizontal: Biggrin

<div id="navbar">
<ul><li><a href="#">Link #1</a></li><li><a href="#">Link #2</a></li></ul>
</div>
#navbar {
  background: #DAFCD7 /* RGB 218/252/215 */ url() repeat-x;
  padding: 0.5em 2em 0.5em 2em;
}

#navbar a {
  color: #2F6182; /* RGB 47/97/130 */
  text-decoration: none;

#navbar ul {

but then we started using different codes.

i wish people would read the top of my website when going to it noting that it is a quickie and there really was no need to use tags since i started finalizing it today! (Check the source now! Ha Ha!)

But then you moved your top note to the bottom, and nobody read it.

I wish that someone would understand that a beginner on HTML and CSS that has developed some nice prototypes wanted to help with stuff like a cool navbar and replacing an incorrect <iframe> (at least on HTML 4.01 Strict):

<IFRAME style="BORDER-RIGHT: #dde5e9 1px solid; PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; BORDER-TOP: #dde5e9 1px solid; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; MARGIN: 3px; BORDER-LEFT: #dde5e9 1px solid; WIDTH: 240px; PADDING-TOP: 0px; BORDER-BOTTOM: #dde5e9 1px solid; HEIGHT: 66px; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" marginWidth=0 marginHeight=0 src="http://cid-204f68fc69cd3cfd.skydrive.live.com/embedrowdetail.aspx/Portable%20Apps%20Hosting" frameBorder=0 scrolling=no></IFRAME>

with an <object> tag:

<object data="http://cid-204f68fc69cd3cfd.skydrive.live.com/embedrowdetail.aspx/Portable%20Apps%20Hosting" type="text/html" style="border: #dde5e9 1px solid; padding: 0px; margin: 3px; background-color: #ffffff; overflow: hidden;" width="240px" height="66px"></object>

which saves space and is correct (but see if it works on IE 6 before)!

I wish people understood that I was talking about someones (points to sergentsiler) temporary (I mean, until it is remade) site that needs retouching, and I would like to "fix" (check his source code).

[I already made a version of the actual state of his site with proper html that saves 0.09kb (with a Transitional DTD that actually could be Strict).
And made also a nice version with backgrounds, CSS files, images and a Logo (his user picture) that, is a little heavier than the original, but really better (and with a Strict DTD).]

I wish sergentsiler understood that I wasn't complaining about the colors for background and text, but for the contrast of the background itself, and that his lodging service wasn't so "picky", on the bad way.

EDIT: After forcing sergentsiler's page to be validated by the W3C Markup validation service forcing to it detect ISO-8859-1 as character encoding, there were detected 59 errors (link).

EDIT #2: And 118 errors after I try to force it to validate as it was HTML 4.01 Transitional (link). Lets try strict?

EDIT #3: Strict: Less errors? 103? Ok. (link).
You should really change lodging. Hum...

No....

118, as the 59 found errors where when it only evaluated the basics. Trying to interpret it like HTML 4.01 Transitional, that even allows deprecated tags, gave 118 errors.

And think of it in this way: PortableApps.com is a BIG site, generated from a dynamic database manager + database (Drupal). It is natural that it may have some errors (most of them surely to make MSIE work correctly). Meanwhile, that is a site that can support for itself on a text file saved as html, it doesn't need nothing more to be viewed. It shouldn't have a error for each sentence made.

That error that the lodging service is doing is awfully wrong, and I will be sure that I don't use it nor recommend it to anyone.

I have already made more tricky pages (with CSS, nav-bars, background images), that have NO errors according to the W3C's HTML Validator. What is easier as it is smaller.

Ok...

I wish to say to sergentsiller that:

  1. His new homepage is a lot better that before.
  2. But if we wants I can give him a remake of his background image without having so much contrast.
  3. I also think that the top nav bar could be made with HTML + CSS + Animated Gifs.
  4. Plus, I don't understand the use of Flash for showing linked text that glows when hovered when all of that could be made with CSS.
  5. And, by last, that the older page still is buggy.

EDIT: I'll try to give a preview of how could the site be with my tricks. Oh! And you finally turned around that problem (I still see some leftovers from that hosting evilness), as it seems.

i heard it, but i will need that remake of the background to see what you were talking about.

  1. i wish people would realize that i am using Dreamweaver8+Html Kit and that i only know html so i can only use html and flash objects.
  2. i also wish people to know that i dont know how to code for a Cascading Style Sheet.
  3. i also wish for people to know that the giant link banner at the middle of my index page is to take you to (Currently just the gallery) the Portable Apps Theme Browser and that i wanted it to look somewhat attractive
  4. i also would like to see ptmb's remake of my site.
  5. and overall i wish that my bittorrent download of the entire inuyasha series and all 4 movies would go just a little faster
  6. (steps back for a breather)

  7. i wish that we could stop this multiple wish posting and email me with any comments or suggestions you may have on my site
  8. (if you dont know my email, it is on my contacts section at the bottom of the theme gallery thogh i will soon be putting up a contacts page)

I wish I understood why hasn't the e-mail reached his destiny yet. Pardon

Now decode that e-mail by yourself Wink

wish granted...

it is most likely because i am using desktoptwo's flash based email and desktoptwo is still in beta so it may take a while.

i wish my veoh plug-in would stop searching for veoh related rss feeds when i dont read them in the first place.

BTW, I used a image to replace the desktop counter while I was editing the site, so remember to replace the image link, with the right image link (but do not replace the code).

(I have forgotten to write that on the e-mail)

Ok, a wish

But the your veoh plug-in stopped working.

I wish sergentsiler read this:
At 8:00 it is 4:00 am here, get FoxClocks and Add Portugal, on Western Europe to the list, so we can set a good hour to talk. I am available from 5/6 pm to 10/11 pm.

How about 11:00am est? It is about 8:00pm in GTM.

But I'll try to be online from 8:00 am est to 2:00 pm est.

I wish to be able to finally connect to IRC with sergentsiler for stopping this thread hijack.

(I am online now, 12:47 pm GTM and I miscalculated the time I will be on IRC)

but it was IKEA furniture so it got confused and had missing parts.

i wish all of the computer screens at my school would stop making this annoying whining sound.

(Damn it is annoying! if you want to hear this for yourself, just screem a really high pitch into your mic, record it, amplify it and change the pitch to like 14,000Hz and play it back on a loop. see how long you last!)

wish granted. But you slapping the computers to make it go away got you sent to detention. (I know how you feel- my monitor does that as well. My suggestion is changing the resolution, it helped an amazing amount with mine- its pretty well gone now.)

I wish i could get pambot to run mean and lean.

Wish granted, but it already was a development test, so you wasted a wish.

I wish John would release the 1.5 alpha, even if its buggy as all get out.

but then schools started teaching espanol so it had a whole bunch off new grammatical and spelling rules, and what you had learned made you look like you didn't know spanish anyway.
