I’m trying to remain reasonably clean
Tickets booked to see the Dredd movie later today, been looking forward to seeing this one, fingers crossed it won’t disappoint.
#1 is yours, Van.
I think you’ll dig the images here:
Goodnight :old technology:
Huge tracts of audio?
Well, the first three did sink into the swamp…
How is it that Monty Python never made it into a Palooza?
If there aren’t enough official Deadpan episodes for another official Palooza and we want to do a Monty Python one, I will happily coordinate, host, and podcast an unofficial one.
Perhaps that is a good idea to save for post Order 288.
I am saving it for that time. :happy:
Tuesday it is.
I admit, I found this amusing
With luck, my computer will be ready today. I’m going to call them in a couple of hours to see.
I think I’m going to go with this keyboard for it. http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX35840
Now I have keyboard envy. Is such a thing possible?
Trying to do the show notes. Can’t figure out the name of the promo, they’re talking to fast. I’ve tried cherry strike, charity strike, trigger mike and can find nothing. If someone can figure it out, let me know and I’ll put them in.
Jack, now that my Earbuddies Forever has been played, I’m ready for my next partner.

Interesting title for a news article:
“Wet, wild Leslie storms across Newfoundland”
It obviously worked. It got your attention :happy:
I bet it got a lot of people’s attention. 😉
As long as you don’t picture a wet, wild Leslie Nielson.
My computer’s ready! My computer’s ready!
oh, oh, oh *quivers in excitment*
I didn’t have any intention of watching NBC’s rebroadcast from the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 this morning, however … I am weak.
Jack, love hearing that Marlo Diane bumper – thanks for whipping it out!
yes, Jack… *Thanks* for whipping it out!
DP, you must now take Van’s coat.

slippery lil’ bugger, isn’t it.

Grrrrr…. Apple is frustrating me today. Yes, it really is the first time in about 4 years that it has managed to irritate me and get my ruffles in a bunch.
I need to update to Mac OS X 10.6, dammit.
Grrrrr, stupid obsolete computer software-make-me-search-all-over-hell’s scalding coals-to-still-not-find-what-I-need!!!!
worked my 2nd job overnight. So, I bid you all a somber remembrance day of September 11th.
Say Good Night and Thank You to the heroes and to those lives lost, Pixie.
Got my new computer. What’s the first thing I do after I hook everything up? Visit the Deadpan of course (ok, it’s the second thing. The first thing I did was load chrome)
Ack! I can’t figure out how to open the front of my new case to access the disc drive to start installing things.
Where’s a manual?
No! Just you stay away, J0e! 😉
Putting on the 3D Specs, waiting for Dredd to start.
Aha! Thank goodness for Google

If someone does a legally questionable chop top to a Pontiac Torrent, does it become a Bittorrent?
There, my Google Chrome is now synced. I now have all my bookmarks.
Loaded Adobe, Audacity, ITunes. Just configuring my e-mail now.
Well Dredd was a cool movie, a few issues with pacing, but helluva a lot more faithful to the sour material than the last attempt.
Source not sour
Reinstalled Steam for the first time in years. There’s a few games that I’m looking forward to playing now that the xbox is dead.
Currently downloading To The Moon with the soundtrack for $10.
“Currently downloading To The Moon”
One small install for ditto …
Currently downloading: Alice Kramden.
Currently downloading Sam Rockwell.
Those copies never last long.
It would figure your Xbox would go out right when I was doing ME3 multiplayer. Oh well. I never played any of the KOTOR games before. I downloaded the first one off Steam last week.
I’m hoping to replace it soon.
What is Steam?
I would appreciate some opinions/advice regarding adding memory to a Desktop computer. I was told today that my Mac desktop will be obsolete and can only run up to Lion OS X, but would require additional memory.
Is buying additional memory worth it, if knowing that I can progress no further than OS software that is already a year old?
I do have a laptop with more memory and a new processor that can handle the most recent OS…
I’m not really a Mac person, so I can only give general answers. Adding memory almost always makes a noticeable improvement in the performance of a computer. The question “Is it worth it?” is a sliding scale of opinion that can only be approximated by asking more questions. Such as:
Is there something tangible the new Mac OS will give you that you don’t have now?
Are there several programs you want to run that only work on the new OS?
Is your computer over six years old?
The cost of more RAM and a new OS is trivial and would most likely give you two good years of additional use. But maybe you want a super snappy new Mac instead? These are questions only you can answer. 🙂
Thanks, Rhettro for helping me to sort through the semantics of it all. I appreciate it very much. 🙂
I have struggled with this and similar issues for decades now. My Macs always seem to outlive their OS.
I’d have to agree with Rhettro on the “analyze what you need in a computer”.
I have a desktop Mac (circa the year 2000 !) that I use for production. I have maxed the RAM and added as big a hard drive as it can take and it still does audio and video like a champ. I did breakdown and buy a new Macbook last year so that I could use some of the more modern internet features but that old Mac refuses to die.
The tabs I have open right now (aside from Deadpan and gmail):
Lots of good reading there, btw. All recommended, but the Esquire piece is amazing.
“Blue Moon Winter Is Coming”
And this one seems *very* intriguing for a Fall brew
Oh my god they all taste bitter.
Maybe this for you then, Van?
I like all of the ingredients, but I don’t know about it all together.
That much sugar is tempting.
There is a guy on this bus that talks like Benny Hill.
Sadly there is a lack of scantily clad women for him to chase.
Is there at least a bald guy whose head he can slap?
Yessss, but I was a lot taller than him…
Good morning, DP!
I’m off for a fancy work breakfast.
Do any of you have recent experience polishing up a resume? I’d love some advice, or a copy of your resume to model after. It’s been a long time . . .
Have a good day, yo!
EssBee, asking for resume help. Should we be worried for you or happy for you?
I haven’t updated my resume in about 5 years, so I’m not sure it would help. You are welcome to a copy if you want one.
How dedicated a tea drinker are you? I love tea, but this definitely goes beyond my dedication level.
I’m sticking to my pack of Yorkshire Tea (teabags!)
Had a hiccup with my new computer and had to take it back in for a couple of hours. I was a very unhappy bunny. All is good now.
Oh the joys of telling MS office where the new files are. It doesn’t like the fact the program is on C drive but all the data is on D.
Read it and weep:
Heaven forbid we’d want the kids to think. No, that’s “grown-up stuff”. Just take our word it’s wrong based on our cherry picked quotes from the Bible.
Good, so now I will cherry pick their article.
“Strong feelings are not proof of anything.”
Like their strong feeling that homosexuality is wrong?
wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong
Sign of the apocalypse? Adrian Zmed accepted my friend request on FB.
I bet he thought the same thing when you friended him. 😉
A question just came up on my twitter feed I wanted DP input on… Do you have to swallow to make it count as food? For example, is gum a form of food. Thoughts?
Ok, censoring my first three thoughts on this ( :blush: ) Gum does have a calorie count on the package so I would say yes as you are still taking in the sugar by swallowing it with your saliva. On the other hand, I actually swallow my gum so what do I know. *shrug*
There’s a fabulous new diet plan that’s perfect for women, and a few men.
My opinion – if you swallow something that can be digested and turned into life sustaining nutrients … it is food.
Here’s a video of a meteor impact on Jupiter. Pretty cool! 🙂
Jupiter is like the hulking big brother that has never really made anything of itself but hangs out in the neighborhood keeping the bullies away from us.
… or maybe I just need to quit anthropomorphizing things.
Update from the financial world.
If you have been mildly attentive you heard that the major portion of AIG stock that the US Gov bought as part of TARP was sold back at a large profit yesterday.
The original TARP program was authorized as a 700 billion bailout for financial companies. Only about 460 billion of it was ever authorized to be handed out and of that, a hundred billion or so has yet to be paid out.
At this point all the major institutions that got bailed out have paid back all or most of their bail out.
In the end, the TARP is a major success if only because it kept us from going into another “Great Depression”. Also though, when all is said and done it will either break even or in fact turn a profit! The AIG stock sale made a $15.1 billion PROFIT on those assets for the FED.
You really won’t hear a lot about this though because the TARP program was so vilified by politicians on both sides of the isle that now NO ONE wants to be associated with it.
I have to admit that I was APPALLED by it when it was first purposed by the out-going Bush administration and then again as the Obama administration followed through with it and then created other bailouts! It is probably the most hated successful government program ever created. I have to give credit where credit is due. It saved this country from an eminent economic collapse.
Music from one of my favorite HBO series: From The Earth To The Moon.
Speaking of which, did you ever finish downloading to the moon? How did you find it?
I found downloading it easy and painless. 😉
The bit I played was quite fun. I hope to play some more later today.
that was such a heart rending game.
Oh, my . . .
Better call Saul!
IPhone will have nano SIM slot.
Bugger, means I won’t be able to get when it is released.
Lego + a bunch of Raspberry Pi’s = supercomputer:
I tunes is being silly. I transferred the files to the new computer. ITunes has decided about 1/4 of them are “unknown artist” or “unknown album”. Because of this, there is no good way to order them so that I can label them manually. (by name mixes the artists/album, by track number is the same, etc.)
Are you keeping your music on the C or the D drive? If the C, you could just keep the original library file.
Also, in Windows, you can can set the properties of music files in the explorer window. If you click on a music file, at the bottom of the window the artist, album, etc show up and you can edit those fields right there. So you can fix these files and then reimport them into itunes.
D drive ditto. I did redirect ITunes to the new drive and, like I said, it recognized most of them. I’ll try the Windows thing tomorrow. Thanks
Oh, ditto! Yoohoo!!
Do you have the new Tilly & The Wall?
Not yet! 🙂
Ill take “I lust Kianna Alarid” for $500, Alex
Sing along with the band but youre losing your voice.
Finished watching my Blu-Ray of the 1st Robert Downey Jr version of Sherlock Holmes. As before, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I really wanted to like the second one (A Game of Shadows). While it certainly had much of the same vibe, I think the real downer for me was them killing off Rachel McAdams character. Much as with the third Matrix movie and Van Helsing, these film makers just can’t seem to help from killing off the love interest, particularly after the hero has recently gone through a major effort to save her.
I get rather tired of romance in action movies, that seems to have been surgically implanted into the plot to appeal to some nebulous demographic .
Another reason for liking the new Dredd movie, there was no romance crap.
Rain and lighting over Omaha tonight. I’m getting better at my job and enjoying it more and more every day. Things are going well.
Good night, Pan. :happy:
I’d love to get your comparisons of Nebraska and California life sometime, Amy. I’m glad you’re doing well!
That reminds me..other than clean public toilets, carried guns, added tax not shown on price sticker, suction toilets in homes, and the heat.
Her future’s so bright
She’s got to wear shades.
Considering the prominent advertising of its 3D and its planned January release date, this is probably going to be a disaster:
But, given the two lead actors, probably still a fun ride….for a rental.
This looks like fun
My only words on football season
Anheuser-Busch makes formula?
Crap joke for the day:
Doctor asks pregnant prostitute…. “do you know who the father is?”
“For goodness’ sake if you ate a tin of beans would you know which one made you fart?”
Today I troubleshoot my system to figure out why the monitor is just a tiny bit fuzzy.
Wow, my glasses are really dirty. No wonder I can’t see the numbers on my spreadsheets clearly.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Wreck It Ralph.
The new trailer looks good.
They had me with Q-Bert.
I know! I thought that too! 🙂
Not out till February 2013 in the UK, the bar stewards.
Reeny, why is there half a dead bug on my living room floor? Honestly cat, I have better things to do than pick up after you.
Run Roo Run goes universal and free for a while:
Mr Rock and Roll – Amy Macdonald
So-called Mr Rock & Roll,
Is dancing on his own again,
Talking on his phone again,
To someone who tells him that his balance is low.
He’s got nowhere to go, he’s on his own again.
Rock Chick of the century,
Is acting like she used to be,
Dancing like there’s no-one there.
Before she never seemed to care,
Now she wouldn’t dare.
It’s so Rock & Roll to be alone.
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before.’
Mrs Black & White she’s never seen a shade of grey,
Always something on her mind,
Every single day.
But now she’s lost her way,
And where does she go from here?
Mr. Multicultural sees all that one can see,
He’s living proof of someone very different to me.
But now he wants to be free,
Free so he can see.
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before.’
He’ll say, ‘I wish I knew you
I wish I met you when time was still on my side.’
She’ll say, ‘I wish I knew you
I wish I loved you before I was his bride.’
And so they must depart,
Two many more broken hearts.
But I’ve seen that all before,
In T.V, books, and film and more.
And there’s a happy ending,
Every single day.
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before
EssBee: I just checked. The new Tilly & The Wall album doesn’t come out until next month.
Aha! They played a track on the latest All Songs Considered this week.
CP: Brighter Hell — The Watchmen
Well. She was something else, wasn’t she?
Jeebus, it’s been a quiet week. Stupid work lockdown.
Hey, sexy lady!
This, Star Trek fans?
My gut feeling is that Dorn is over eager and overly excited about making a Worf series. And that his excitement is way beyond any real chance of getting a pre-reboot character green-lighted.
Last night, former Alberta Premier Peter Laugheed passed away while at the Peter Laugheed Hospital. When I die, I want to be at the Ryah D hospital.
Just stay away from Rhettro General. Lots of numb skulls over there.
Yeah, I thought that was a pretty good list. I’m constantly surprised that most people don’t know the Canadian angle on Superman.
This has got to be one of the marvel franchises I look forward to the least.
ok, here’s the link
In this weekend’s news, I’m having dinner this weekend made by a MasterChef contestant…. Other than that I don’t have much news. Happy Weekend y’all.
I think that’s pretty cool, Cynful
Sounds like a tasty time!
Sounds like a foodie dream come true. Tell us about all of the delicious entrees when you’re done, Cynful.
‘Lawless’ had one of he naffest shoot outs in cinematic history.
Lots of Mexican truck drivers shooting at one another?
Oh wait … that’s “NAFTA”.
*Re-Checks his Vanamonde to U.S. translation dictionary.*
Never Ask For Two Avocados?
Niceness Attracts Freakish Thug Acolytes?
Never Accept French Tom Arnold?
That would have worked better than the one in the film.
Life is good when you have a banana/raspberry protein shake in you. :happy:
The sheer scope of innuendo potential here is dizzying.
Jack: episodes no longer show up in my rss reader! Glad it finally occurred to me to check the site.
Exploding Death Skull Blade of the Traveling Pants — I’ll admit, it sounds like something I want to see.
Thanks for the heads up, Daniel! Hmm.
So rummaging around I discovered the manual for the original ‘Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe’ for the PC.
A manual thick enough to bludgeon a cow and a damned good read.
Did the game make you type in the 18th word in the 12th paragraph on page 866 just to be able to play?
I remember when that came out, but I never played it .
I’d still rate the Falcon 4.0 manual as the biggest, but I never completed a single mission in it because I could land the damn F16 without crashing. I had a blast on Falcon 3.0 though.
CW: The Prisoner E1 Arrival
Boggles the mind:
Best line: “The day your faith gets shaken by a Dr Pepper ad is the day you should probably start reconsidering your faith.”
So what wasn’t clear to me was … where was the biggest outcry come from?
Did 5 nut jobs post seriously misguided anti-Dr. Pepper screes only to be buried under 2495 posts from people pointing out there stupidity? Was it 2400 clueless zelouts being challenged by 100 atheists? Was it 50/50???
The reason I ask is that I am wondering if this would have been a total non-event without articles like this calling it to the attention of the adults?
If it was just a handful of the clueless … it doesn’t become an internet “thing” unless the other side jumps on it and drastically boosts the signal of those they wish would keep silent. Ironic?
Reminds me of this whole “Anti Islamic” video thing. Without the violent outcry from the middle east … less then a few dozen people would have ever known that piece of hate even existed.
CP: Here and Now — Letters to Cleo
Guess what, Deadpan! It’s movie time
Today’s movie is, Don’t Be Afraid of The Dark
The DVR writeup: young Sally Hurst inadvertently unleashes a race of ancient monsters in her father’s 19th century mansion, and she struggles to convince him that these creatures are real before they destroy her family in this chilling remake
No nudity. I guess the world isn’t ready for a naked former mrs. Cruise
Old timey house lit by candles
Don’t trust the old man!
How clumsy of her
What a strange ransome
Now the credits
At the airport
Who uses Polariods any,ore?
This kid is really into spirals
Ooooo, cool door
I want this house!
I really want this house
Katie Holms is old
Pot kettle black?
Hey! Be nice. That wasn’t me talking. That was the kid
It’s got a lake too
She’s also looking stupidly thin
Old hoses means old vents where you can hear anything
An ill wind blows in
What an odd statue
Those bushes seem awfully well manicured for an abandoned, run down area
An underground green room
Tearing down the house
The old man does not look amused
The ashpiit talks
I want that bed
Bad Sally. Bad!
Oh gawd, she was in that show that ran for years that concentrated on a mother and daughter.
I thought there was no nudity?
Cobwebs exist for a reason kid. They’re nature’s way so saying keep out
I really don’t like KH’s character in this flick
Except I think these ones must have gotten wet. They look a little straggly
That was mean
A gift from the tooth fairy
Honest, she didn’t do it
He’s gonna die
That’s gotta hurt
You know. He did say call for help
She’s afraid of the dark
Poor Sally. Nobody believes you
Meanwhile, in the city
The maid will be the next to get it
Get. Het. Out
Rubber duckie, you’re the one
Ah yes, the required back story
Not the door stupid, the light
Where did she go
Brief break! Back in a bit
Black Mesa is out:
I would recommend grabbing it via Torrent if you don’t want to tear your hair with the download links.
I’m back! Where was I? Oh yeah, little girl lost
Nobody believes her
Bad daddy. Bad
So let’s see. They prefer dark spaces so lets follow them behind the library wall
She got one
You know you can’t leave
Don’t leave her alone dummy
Holy cow, there’s a lot of them now
Killing daddy slowly
Of course the flashlight is going out. I’d expect nothing less
Kim’s gone man
A short time later
They alluded to that earlier
Movie is over. Meh.
Pixie and I saw that piece o crap in the theater on one of our earliest dates. (awww)
Patton Oswalt, Ellen Barkin and others tweeted about BB recently.
Looks like the Yotes have gone and Doan it.
Opps… Ive Doan It Again.
I call Maloney.
Nice collection of artwork of Wheel of Time characters, for those of us into that sort of thing…
Any opinions on Deus Ex: Human Revolution? Steam has it on sale this weekend for 75% off.
Haven’t played it myself.
Played it via Onlive, it’s worth picking up.
Speaking of hockey. . . . I sent a similar email while blocked today:
The major North American league may refuse to play this season, but that doesn’t mean there’s no high-level hockey to follow. The KHL are currently the best active players in the world. And their season has started already! Games are on right now.
http://en.khl.ru/ I’m leaning toward Lokomotiv, myself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lokomotiv_Yaroslavl
Getting to a home game might be a challenge, though. . .
Calgay has a pretty good hockey team in The Hitmen http://www.hitmenhockey.com/
I used to take Lyra there regularly. The games were always fun to watch and afterwards, if you hung around the lobby, some of the players would come out and sign autographs. She has a number of autographs by then up and comers who are now in the major league. (of course, she also have autographs by some who, once they left the minors, we’ve never heard of again)
“Doan’t stop believin'”
The beginning of ‘A Bridget Too Far’ with the narration by Liv Ullman, and those last few lines, still give me a spine tingling sensation.
It never occurred to me to wonder if Tracy and Liv Ullman were related.
Sigh, I missed an ‘n’ of the end.
Saw this duo tonight, good gig:
Even though it’s a work in progress it still rather cool:
Hey, Pan! You’re getting a second Play-By-Play this week! :happy:
I’ve got my DVD of “Legend” out of the Netflix envelope and ready to go. I’m finally paying off my debt from the last round of betting on the Stanley Cup finals. :biggrin: 🙂
A Ridley Scott Film
I do believe this may be my first Ridley Scott film.
The tea leaves tell that you’ll encounter Bladerunner very soon.
My WordPress theme is called “Blix.” Hmm.
Pretty lensflare rainbow.
I like the white and gold dress.
Lily. What else do you name the innocent character?
I like her already. :happy:
Lily is blindfolded
No, don’t try to touch them!
I do like the music in this movie.
Diving off a bridge
Apparently evil magic causes ice and frost to form spontaneously
The goblins like to speak in rhyme
Toadstools. And a fairy?
Honeythorn Gump, at your service.
To touch a unicorn is to upset the order of the universe
Elves like to ask riddles
And they hate it when mortals best them at riddles.
Where is everybody going?
Oh- to find the unicorn. Yep, that one is dead.
Jack does speak the unicorns’ language.
They must find a champion to get the stolen horn back.
The she-unicorn is the last of her kind.
Blix wants to keep the power of the horn for himself.
Gump sends Jack into the cave a la Yoda
The Big Bad does not like the idea of anyone else holding the power of the horn.
Frying pan as a weapon
When evil anarchy ruled the land? Bit of a contradictory choice of words, isn’t it?
“You don’t really mean to eat me, do you, ma’am?” Duh!
He tells her how beautiful he is, and she says, “You think me fair?” The Supreme Leader and Captain E-O had almost this same dialog.
*read as* something very inappropriate for Amy Bowen to post
/cue long ass work day end
I did it!
Bucket-head is a good fairy in disguise
Uh-oh, Oona is a shapeshifter. At least Jack is smart enough to know that. And is faithful to Lily, no matter what.
Oona lets everyone else out, except Jack.
We must find the dungeons? There are more dungeons other than the ones you just escaped from?
The Lord of Darkness talks to his father
You must woo her
What do girls like? Jewelry and dancing. Okay, that should win her over.
Scary devil guy coming through mirror. o_0
Even now, the evil seed of what you have done germinates within you.
Jack gets an idea for a plan
“We must gather every shining object we can find. We’re going to bring light to darkness.”
That mail shirt you’re wearing would be a good start…
Frisbee with giant platters
Fight scene time!
Looks like they scalded the villains to death.
Three cheers for our champion!
Villain tries to get pretty girl to eat dinner with him. This is a familiar scene, too.
He sure sounds sincere when he speaks of love, for a villain.
Why are the walls sparkling?
Wow! Lily is one clever princess!
The platters are a system of mirrors!
Jack was right to trust Lily :happy:
The final showdown
Oona tries to angle the plate herself, but it’s too heavy for her
Sunlight really is as destructive as he said
The void is full of stars
Searching for the ring once again
True love’s kiss
Lily thinks she just had a terrible nightmare
You’re my Prince.
Aww. She gave him the ring to keep. :love:
The unicorn stallion has been revived
Robert Picardo as Meg? Seriously? o_0
And my first Play-By-Play is complete. That was fun. :happy: Thanks for playing along, Pixie and J0e.
Good night, goblins everywhere.
The Most Useless Website on the Interwebs
Even more than Zombo.com? Impressive.
So, I had preordered the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase One collection. All of the new generation of Marvel blu-rays including the Avengers. Was due to be released next week, same day as The Avengers. Since I has only bought the first Iron Man, it looked like a good deal to me.
Several weeks ago, word came out the the briefcase that the movies would be coming in had resulted in a trademark infringement lawsuit from the company that provided the actual ones for the movie – http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/aug/06/marvel-sued-avengers-briefcase-box-set
So, word comes out that this collection is being delayed until Spring 2013 – no details on what the new packaging will be.
But, I got an email from Amazon this morning explaining the situation. Even though the delay wasn’t their fault, they offered all of us who preordered through them a free copy of the Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD combo set when it releases next week. I think I can take that to hold me over until next Spring 🙂 +1 for Amazon.
Robert Picardo was in Legend??
Ed, that collection will never be complete without this one:
Which I would probably enjoy more than the shitty new one. (I know, I know…)
There’s a link on the IMDB site that claims ‘Four Ways to avoid running out of money during retirement’, I would bet DEATH is not on the list….
Robert Picardo was completely hidden under green makeup as swamp-dweller Meg Mucklebones in “Legend.” I noticed his name in the end credits of the movie, then went to IMDb to confirm.

NASA remembers Neil Armstrong:
Question to web savvy Deadpanites … is there any reason not to use good old fashion HTML to make an informative web page?
I’ve agreed to help a group maintain their web page. It is basically just a calendar and reports from past events. It is NOT a marketing tool. It is NOT a social site. They just want to use it to stay informed. Clean, neat and informative are really the only requirements. Oh … and maybe user photos from events. HTML I know. Forms and css and plugins and widgets and et … I don’t know.
justajoe is gonna code like it’s 1999….
[what it sounds like] When doves cry [/what it sounds like]
While HTML5 is more complicated, it is complicated for good reasons. And no one says you have to use all the features. You don’t have to use flash or other plugins, but I’d strongly encourage you to use css. And learn that there are a wide variety of browsers, including mobile, that may visit the site.
Having played with CSS recently when creating a job-aid-type webpage, I strongly agree. It really does make your life a lot easier when you’re creating a Web page.
Other than that, no, I can’t really think of a good reason not to build a web page in HTML. ditto is definitely right about making sure the site looks good across a wide variety of browsers and mobile devices, though. (A common phenomenon these days is to build in some code – I don’t know what kind of code – that can tell when the site is being accessed from a mobile device, and if it is, the viewer is automatically redirected to the mobile-friendly version of the site.)
I guess I shall have to give in to the Dark CSSide.
