Sambot Got Fixed... Sort Of
Posted by Sam at 9:39 PM
Well, sambot.com got fixed. Mostly fixed, anyway. I rearranged some code and got things to look almost all better. I'm viewing this as a temporary solution. Hopefully Blogger will work some stuff out in the near future.
Anyway, my solution is a backassword workaround, but it does work. I was going to post the fix here, but I'm so annoyed by the whole thing that I really don't want to think about it anymore.
Old post are still going to look funky... readable, but funky. The only other thing that is still wrong is the space directly underneath the post body. But, it's a small annoyance... one that I'm willing to live with.
A few other things did come out of this ordeal... neither good nor bad, just things... barely worth mentioning really. But nevertheless, here they are: I learned a bit about some of the other blogging options: Wordpress, Movable Type, etc... and discovered that Blogger is just so gosh darn easy to use. I hope that they get their act together fairly quickly because making the transition from Blogger to one of the other options seems... time consuming. The other thing that I learned is that sambot looks like ass on the PC. Well, maybe not entirely like ass. More like polished butt than full-fledged ass. The point is that the font treatment on the PC is way different than its Mac counterpart. I know that I double-checked sambot on the PC during the development stages. I must have just overlooked it or was willing to ignore it for a while and then forgot about it. Maybe I'll fix it. Maybe you should just get Mac? Maybe I should end this post now... I'm starting to feel violent.
Oh... one more thing: if anything looks weird on your particular system, or if there's something that I've overlooked, please let me know. Thanks!

Get a mac? you must be kidding me, but, Windows isn't even the best platform.. not even the new one: Vista. Everyone is raving about it, and it sucks; iv had it since it was in beta, and, it looks like a:
