CSS + jQuery = Webdesign Love, but …. IE ≠ Happiness

Okay, so the last 24 hours has involved me doing what were suppose to be some pretty simple updates… but ooohh no, the evil that is IE strikes again. Safari - okay, beautiful, Firefox - slick, no problemo, and then we go to IE - where the #$%^ is my menu bar?!

Yep, some little piece of css the IE didn’t like made my whole menu bar disappear off every page - ack! Thankfully I found the fix and viola, the menu bar reappeared AND thanks to z-index, it even went over the slick little image slideshow that I placed on the front page. (www.bagley.msstate.edu) Yep, jQuery, nice and it works on smart phones. Previously I was using Flash, but lets face it, they are never going to effectively have a version of Flash working on smart phones - AND that isn’t Apples problem, it’s an Adobe problem. ( I’m not hating on Adobe - love CS5, heart me some Photoshop and InDesign.  But Adobe has had all the time in the world to get their version of Flash working for smart phones, but its too big, clunky, and buggy… thus, no Flash on iPhones, which is why I’ve investigated this jQuery slideshow set up - our side works both on computers and hand held devices — oh yeah, on it!

So, yes, CSS + JQuery  = Love, and yep - IE is still evil.  : O

just had Tech Support come to me for answers

Yep, just happened. Our computer whiz, our technical support/computer specialist — he needed MY mac savvy help.  :)  Yep, thanks again to the years in the graphics computer lab at BSU.  I tip my hat to R, BP, Marty and Jeff for being awesome teachers, bosses, and co-workers.

Life is a conversation. When we enter, it’s already going on; we try to catch the drift of it; we exit before it’s over. The first lesson any pragmatist learns is that at the hour of our death we are rewriting our biography for the last time. And then, the first hour into our death someone else rewrites the biography for us — our children, our spouses, our friends. Do you remember what he was like, what he said, what he did? … In that sense life is a conversation … that continuously goes on … No one has the last word; there are no final thoughts. There is no end to the conversation.
