My latest non-work-related programming project...

It needs some more tweaking (like making the printable link word-wrap), but it's not bad for a first pass.

it doesn't work in Netscape 4.8

(i do webpage design for a living, and i test everything in a bunch of different browsers, including an obsolete one, because not every user is going to have the latest bleeding-edge technology.)

and, oddly enough, when (if?) i ever get around to redesigning my own page, i'm going to include a section of recipes myself. then we can have Dueling Recipes or something ;-)

*grin* My offer to host your stories still stands.

I tested it with Mozilla and IE. I see some problems when I try to validate it, but it's going to take some research to see what's going on...

well, my stories are alive and well on ASSTR, but they're just sort of sitting there. what i want to do is rebuild my main page, putting the "safe" ones back on the monmouth.com server, and linking to the ASSTR site for the naughty stuff. i intend to try to make it seamless - the casual visitor will see a list of my works, and click on a title, and never know (without looking at the address bar, anyway) which server the work is on. but i've just had way too much else to do, for too long... and it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Netscape 4.8 has trouble with certain aspects of style sheets, and with certain Javascript functions (especially the ones that can be used to replace straight HTML calls). from the way it's failing, it's one or the other of those. however, don't feel that you're obligated to make it work in older browsers - probably most of the people who'd be interested in your recipes have at least Netscape 7.x and/or IE.

No JS on the page (it's all perl-generated HTML). But it does have CSS stuff. I'll take a look at the CSS tomorrow...

it's the CSS. also, you've got a graphic (dot.gif) that can't be found.

Works great in...

Works great in Safari (which is based on KHTML, so I imagine it works great in Konqueror too).

Kolachis

Please...pretty please...a recipe for making kolachis (sp?)

They don't have them here. The luxury of a sausage and cheese (or even jalapeno) kolachi is simply unheard of. It's one food I had in the US that I really miss. My first kolachi was on a boat trip in Galveston Bay on July 4th 1996, and I've been addicted ever since.

I need to know how to make them so I can bring in a box of hot kolachis into work one morning and watch everyone else get hopelessly hooked.

Re: Kolachis

I'll see what I can come up with. Have you ever baked bread from scratch?

Re: Kolachis

I haven't baked ANYTHING from scratch, ever! Well, apart from the odd tuna bake, but that's hardly baking bread!

Re: Kolachis

Here's the problem with Kolaches - they're a yeast bread, so you need to let them rise and knead them down and let them rise...and those are technique-intensive procedures.

Let me see if I can find you some basic bread instructions that give you useful, geeky advice on how to do that (as opposed to "knead until it feels right"). Once you can do bread, you'll be able to do kolaches.

Or, you can come visit me and I can just show you. Or, you can find the nearest available female and ask her to show you - I think women know how to bake bread instinctively. :)

Re: Kolachis

I dunno if you can get packaged yeast where you are, but this has good directions, and a basic bread recipe:

Fleischmann’s yeast beginners info:
http://www.breadworld.com/beginnertips/begintips.asp

Then try this bread recipe:
http://www.breadworld.com/recipes/recipedetail.asp?id=252

When you can make that successfully, you'll be ready for kolaches. :)
