Well. I’ve fixed the CSS for this journal. It’s not quite as pretty as I’d like it to be, but it renders properly in IE for Windows now (at least, my copy). Which, let’s face it, has most of the market share.

2:44 p.m.

The internet is a World of Ends. You can apply it to your blog with interesting effects, I think. I’m still absorbing this.

Stephen writes, in part: “Expose continues to be the best thing to happen to GUIs since the WIMP (Windows, Icon, Mouse, Pointer) mangement concept.”

Well…no. I’ve been using Expose for awhile, and it’s a nifty way of navigating from one window to another. But it’s essentially another utility for navigating windows, joining the group that includes the dock/taskbar/etc. and Alt-Tab window switching. And I find it a lot quicker to Alt-Tab between applications than to use a key/mouse combination to choose windows.

Don’t get me wrong; Expose is an impressive innovation, so impressive it was immediately cloned for Windows (with no mention of its Apple inspiration). But I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.

In other news, I’m feeling better. My sleep patterns are returning to normal.

I had a rather stressful Sunday. I’m taking over the 5th and 6th grade boys’ class at my local AWANA club, as the previous leader of that group was transferred to Hawaii. That was a bit worrying, as I’ve never had that much responsibility, and there’s a lot to keep track of — records, notifying the kids of upcoming events, and keeping order. The night went reasonably well; the kids were a bit loud and raucous, but no worse than they are on many nights. It’s early days yet.

But I came home to a truly amazing comfort meal: hearty macaroni and cheese, good thick white bread with a thick layer of sweet butter, a tall cold glass of milk, and chocolate chip cookies; all homemade.

Sometimes, all that homemaking really pays off.
