Someone look at this for me please! I'm going nuts. I hate making layouts like this (not to mention FOR FREE). This layout isn't even close to being done but for some lame reason, FF isn't behaving itself. The whole thing validates too >:(

The link: http://www.fauxdreams.net/chaos

I'm ready to give up altogether (especially because the kids who are going to run the site are still so freaking clueless...) >:(

They're expecting this layout. I wanted them to do the images like they said they were going to but I'm rushing this whole thing because I don't have the time to wait for their lazy asses and don't want to keep hounding them.

I hate being ethical and completing projects like I say I'm going to rather than saying fuck it! (like I said a couple of weeks ago, if I offer to do something like this for free again, just shoot me lol - it'll put me out of my misery without having to put up with stress from people who are clueless).

Have you tried putting
* { margin: 0px; padding: 0px; }
?

NM! I fixed it, now I have to center everything and it'll be fine. I have no idea what was going on. I know I didn't define the body at that point either and when I did, I just did a 0px body padding and it fixed that problem. I dunno, it's probably because I was/am tired.

Ugh, just spent over an hour making a PST for a Pascal program.
Damn that is a sucky language.

Not very, although it increases the dimensions of your images by a pixel or two (can be very annoying).

Roll on IE8.

IE7 supports transparent PNGs :P

ATM, you're using IE6.
IE7 has been released for a couple of days. And it blows donkeys.

Yep, it's all final and released. Last I heard, they're recommending all Windows users to update. Personally, I don't like it. I especially don't like the UI.

I think I heard they were going to do it as a forced upgrade to windows actually.

I don't like the fact that I have to open 3 tabs to be able to enter an URL -.-

You don't understand, I can only execute the request I entered in my address bar if I have 3 or more tabs opened.

Yep, my mobo has onboard graphics and any mouseovers on websites have a 0.5 second delay.

Oh it's been a "great" day today!

I went to the dr @ 9:15 for my 9:30 appointment and got out of there just before 10. Then I went to fill my prescriptions and got to work @ 10:30 and discovered that the girl that helps me out never came in today (she left @ 12 on Friday), so I was quite pissed off. Even if she did come in, the pile of parts that either had to be shipped or put on the shelf to wait for them to be due before sending would probably still be there when I got here.

So I plowed through all of the parts and about 11:45 or so, UPS calls me! I have a package here that I want to send to Long Island City (NY) this afternoon and I need the tracking number because the tracking number got smudged! They couldn't freaking tell me that last week?! (This was the next day air package that they "lost" last week). So now I'm not frantic and stressed over that anymore. I'm just waiting for the customer to call me up saying that they finally got the package (after we sent replacement parts and material so that they can make the remainder of the parts).

Cool. I hate 800x600 px screen resolutions, meaning your page is too big for them (just so that you know).

Really? I'm using percentages, not fixed widths. It should work :/
