^ Not bad. Only two things I'd point out (which means you're already officially better than my boss :roll: ).

1) div#space

It would probably be better to directly give it a height than use an out-of-context break-rule to pad it out.

2) div#right

Generally, position:fixed is used for one-off elements, like ThickBox pop-up images or DHTML dialog boxes - things that are only shown when they require the user's direct attention. Using position:fixed "fixes" the element to that area of the visible browser window, removing the element from the document rendering flow. As such, position:fixed elements do not extend the document, meaning they won't trigger a scroll bar if they go off the bottom of the page. It also means they don't scroll with the page, so if your document got taller, it would always be taking up that area, regardless of how far down you scrolled.

I see you have left:80%; right:0; in order to give it a dynamic width. The same can be accomplished with width:20%; float:right;, though you will have to remove the right margin to get it to line up with the header block - since it's position:fixed at the moment, it ignores the body margins that push the header away from the edge of the page.

That looks pretty good, Kemaru. I've been working on my crappy site. I always have something good, but then think of something so much better so I never finish. :(

The most recent SOTW competition ends in a few hours. If anyone has any good Greyscale entries, now would be the time!

This is a screenshot I took when I was loading up this site. :mrgreen:

Btw, is there any page that can be used to satisfy the "citation needed" marking in the Plugin section of the Paint.NET Wikipedia page? It's in the statement saying plugins are commonly written in C#. I've already cited Ego Eram Reputo's Plugin Index (wonder if it counts as a reliable source) to satisfy a few other annoying tags.

I'm running Chrome and a modem-wide ad blocker (modified modem blacklist FTW) :D

EDIT: Personally, I prefer Chrome to Firefox. It's more stable (been using it for months, never crashed, while Firefox crashes at least once a week), I've never had any memory usage issues (FF can eat up half a gig in minutes the way I browse), it loads a hell of a lot faster (2 seconds between Start Menu click to the Google homepage), and it has better web standards (Acid3 is a breeze). And as it turns out, I don't have any urge to install any addons for it, though they are available.

Thanks a lot for all the advice. I fixed the right area and I'm working on the yellow bar.

@pyro: Thanks. I'm using an internal style sheet at the moment because it's easier to edit and fix.

Brrrrrr, it's 267 Kelvin outside :shock:

Sounds like T-Shirt weather to me. :)

It's 262 Kelvin right now where I live in Placerville, CA.

And, my sister says it's 254 Kelvin where she lives (in Reno, NV).

276 Kelvin... I want snow.

You want snow? Come to Colorado. It's not gonna snow again this week, but it's also not gonna get above freezing till the weekend (254 K right now) and it's super windy, so the snow that we have right now is going to stay, but look different every day.

Actually it is genetic. Most likely you got it from your dad. I have three gray hairs and I've had them since I was about 15. I got it from my dad. No stress at all.

If it's just the one strand of grey hair then you don't have to worry really, I had a grey strand at the age of 9.

Moving swiftly on, the clocks tick tock down to the end of the year where assuming all goes well, we'll have the award ceremony.

Just as a treat (and a reminder for you to vote for me), here's a freshly prepared bad joke which I managed to use to "disrupt" my French lesson.

Where does a terrorist like to attach explosives?

On his terror-wrist! :lol:

Enjoy :P

What about BoltBait's plugin tutorial?

Neither of my parents have grey hair, actually. To be honest, it's surprising. :) But I have been under a bit more stress than usual. I nearly went into one of my regular shutdowns earlier today....
