Ryan, Geoff, John

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm linking to your application pages from my site, I just made the whole thing the other day, so all that's really together is the applications list. The paragraph above it isn't, I want to reword that, I will also name and link you all on the credit page as well. It's just applications in the PortableApps format that I think are high quality. I know a few of John's and one of Ryan's are still in beta, but they all work well, and I will be noting about them being in beta on that same page when I get a chance.

So yea, just letting you all know. By the way, anyone know why some icons don't convert to PNG properly, (see the last two). Is there some way to fix that not by hand?

Cool

Nice design. Oh and you misspelt Development in the navigation Wink
One more thing. You might want to get some sort of PHP system powering it, otherwise it scales pretty crab. (Flip the b)

Oh yea.

I thought I had spelt it wrong, I just wasn't sure, is there a spell check in Nvu?

Scales? What like scrolling? And I don't know how to do all this server stuff and PHP and all, what's the benefit?

Yea, I like the theme, at first I thought it was to dark, but I really like it now. Ha, don't you love how the drop shadow is on the N, that's the only thing I know how to do since you told me! Blum

Dunno, I personally prefer Notepad++.

Scaling, as in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalability
If you use PHP, you won't need to update every single page when you change something in, say your navigation.

Nice, Patrick. Blum

Cool looking site

Cool looking site. What did you use to convert the icons? Some icons use a specific alpha channel not supported by most converters (like IconSushi). Photoshop, or GIMP with the icon plug-in should handle them properly, just open the .ico file, then do Save As and make it a png. Also, your graphic at the top of the site had the white border, and the edges of the circle aren't smooth at all. If you like, I can try to come up with something. I'd keep the glass-ball effect, just get rid of the white background and fix the aliasing on the edges. e-mail me at zrhudock {at} adelphia {dot} net if you would like help with the graphics.

Alright.

I'll try the GIMP with the icon plug-in, I used @icon sushi because it was quick and easiest. But thanks for that. Umm, yea, if you checked out the developement page, I was looking for someone to do that. I would also like to make it a batter favicon, and regular 2/ 3 part icon if possible, I will definatly e-mail you tonight, thanks!

thinking...

of dooing that on my free space at http://sergentsiler.ueuo.com or http://sergentsiler.orgfree.com, not my freespace in my sig because they wont let you use the site for a file server or anything. i am also thinking of putting the rest of the apps that i have in the PAM and my conp on there. s' pretty cool there and i will stop talking like a spammer now. just realized that it sounded that way and this isn the thread i should be doing it on anyway. (srry!) \(^^)/

Ohhh!

Now I see what you mean by white, it's because when I changed it, I just made the background colour the same as the site, when I should have made it transparent. I'm on my friends computer and it's a small monitor, so the navigation bar is messed up, the logo, as well as the background is not displaying. Whoo, that's messed. This is all much harder than I thought. But then again, this is also IE 5 on Windows 2000.

This message is for ZGitRDun.

I saw it with the messed up

I saw it with the messed up white view on XP with Firefox. Also, I don't see a favicon at all. I have not yet received an e-mail from you either. I'll be able to work on it later tonite and during the day tomorrow if you e-mail me with specifics on what you are looking for.

Yep.

Sorry, I've been busy the past couple days, I was never on my home computer, and I only had a few minutes each day on the computer, I was gonna e-mail you last night, but our power was out. I'll send you an e-mail right now.

And the reason you don't see the favicon is probably because I never added the lines of text or whatever I'm s'posed to, I just upload "favicon.ico" I can see it, but I think some people will not be able to.

I know.

I know I didn't put in the text required, I think I said that somewhere above.

Umm, I just put that at the beggining of the page? Or somewhere else? And "image/x-icon" is what?

You're using IE? Cause the page will look a bit screwed up right now.

That is the mime type thing.

That is the mime type thing. Favicons didn't work for me until I added that to my link tag.

Hmm

Try <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" /> instead.

Kay.

But where's the best spot? At the beggining or end of the page? Or middle. Smile

And what's image/vnd.microsoft.icon?

In between the <head> tags Blum

Internet Explorer was the first to use favicons and set their MIME type to image/vnd.microsoft.icon
The technically correct one would be image/icon but image/vnd.microsoft.icon is the officially registered MIME type for favicons.
