a9.com

I was going through my referer logs and I found one from A9.com. I clicked on the site info link and found this crazy Amazon/Alexa page for my site. (note: NEVER install anything from Alexa) I don't really understand what the point is, but I guess it's kinda cool.

Mhaph tophs mmmfls thaoth!

This reminded me of the scene in Spaceballs where the RADAR screen gets "jammed" (and an old SNL skit that I can't seem to find much on).

New TraviBlog Search Feature

Users with a real browser just look in the lower right-hand corner of your browser (TNN users have to skip all the way down to the bottom of the page, and AIM users should click on the little # to the left of the title to see any cool stuff). It's a pretty easy feature to add. Just paste this HTML into the bottom of your page:
<form id="Form2" method="get" action="http://www.google.com/search">
       <input type="text" name="q" size="10" />
       <input type="hidden" name="q" value="site:travis.servebeer.com" />
       <input type="submit" value="google this site" />
</form>


...and I used this CSS to style it:
#Form2
{
       width: 100%;
       text-align: center;
}

form[id=Form2]
{
       width: auto !important;
       text-align: right !important;
       margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
       padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
       position: fixed;
       bottom: 0px;
       right: 0px;
}

form[id=Form2] input
{
       -moz-opacity: 0.50;
       background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 127);
}

form[id=Form2] input:HOVER, form[id=Form2] input:FOCUS, form[id=Form2] input:ACTIVE
{
       -moz-opacity: 0.90;
       background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 229);
}

It's a great half-assed solution 'till .Text gets upgraded. (I'm too lazy to recompile it myself)

[EDIT] - many mispellings ;-)

Happy Birthday Seti@Home!

I can't believe it's been 5 years already. I mentioned awhile back that Ralph and I started a SetiTeam: RedDiesel. Feel free to use my proxy server. It'll give you some nice stats as well as reduce the load on the main SETI servers. Anyways, grab a client, and get crackin' - you've got a long way to catch up.

Hey kids, who rules?

O'Doyle rules! I saw the headline and I had a flash-back to high school.

Good Fark Photoshop Contest

Redesign the packaging for a product you dislike to reflect why you dislike it. I don't think I've ever voted for that many entries before.

Killer Apps

I've only just begun to compile a list of software that I often use. Some of it is pretty obscure, and some of it is pretty sweet.
