comment on 2016 redesign by misterhaan

thanks! i plan to write up some more details on those topics and a couple more. it’s looking like some will be guides and some blog posts. i haven’t rewritten the guides section yet so those might take longer to show up. at the same time i’m still working on rewriting the rest of the site, so plenty to keep me busy whenever i have the time for it. at least i can work on blog posts on my phone now!

Hey, saw your post on, and thought I'd come over for a look. I like the new design, I'll need to check how it looks on my phone as well. Overall, it sounds like you're on the right track. Each of the upgrades make sense. More and more people are using mobile devices to browse the web, nobody likes to remember yet another username and password, and jQuery and gives the user a more modern experience. I'd be interested in reading into the details if you decide to publish your adventures in coding for mobile, fluid layout, working with jQuery and such. Nice work!

i put up the first steps of a track7 redesign on january 2nd, 2016. i had of course started working on it much earlier than that, but this was when i had enough ready to start the transition. this time around i have less time to spend on my website, so it’s likely to remain in this partly-new, partly-old state for some time.

comment on generic rant by Daniel Tiger

There's an interesting paradox between public companies that must maximize shareholder profits, and what is truly good for the public. If you think about it, that is a major contributing factor to the divide between "middle class" and the "1 percent'ers". Consider the energy/mining industry in it's current state. Thousands are laid off due to lower commodity prices. This is done to mitigate declining stock market values in exchange for shareholder confidence. The problem is, people lose their jobs, those that even have a stake in the company. Meanwhile, the upper management retains their high salaries, stock values may rise (putting more money in their pockets), and the "middle" man is out of luck.

oddly enough, this particular cat was always up for a car ride!  i see i didn't post photos of either, but he also enjoyed a canoe ride and a camping trip (where he caught a couple mice he didn’t know what to do with).

A seemingly wise man once posted, in an internationally active forum, THAT in his considered opinion , a pissing section in a public swimming pool, was just like a smoking section in a public resturant. (and about as useful) This concept of 'common sense' approach , is something that the free world's energy/mining companys could well benefit from, in order to maximise their shareholders profits over a much longer term. This concept and connection a little bit obscure? Bing Bong. Climate change. Ring any bells? No? Global warming? Sea level changing? No? No connection? AARRRRRRGH!!!

--- and here we are ten years later, I cannot help but reflect upon our past innocence, if not our folly of youth. Whereas nowadays the Queensland Government in Australia has recently passed legislation which effectively and specifically prohibits the riding of Harley Davidson motorcycles in groups of more than two, -while wearing matching motorcycle club vests.

This was done strictly in lawful accordance with our (popularly applauded) anti-terrorist, anti-boat peop0le, and anti-organised crime, preventative counter-measures, which were already in place.

We, do not, the Patriot Act, need. Seig Heil! Onwards and Upwards meine freunde!
Flatulence (creative or involuntary) will not be tolerated unless it is in the service of the state and for the greater glory of ALL Australians. Und you all will not fun of ze Government make. Schweinhund! *breaks wind*
