Technical Difficulties Destroy Profitability, Cause Deadline Over-runs June 30, 2005 8:21 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
So I’m programming like a mad man yesterday. Everything is going well and looking sharp then suddenly my website on my development server does not look at all like the website on the production server. It will take nearly 5 hours of troubleshooting and 5 hours of sleep to figure out what happened.
The Problem: The CSS in Mozilla Firefox don’t load on the development server but load fine on the production server. To confound the issue the style sheet works in IE on both servers. The problem is reproducible from multiple computers. If the style sheet is referenced by <link> as in <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css"> it doesn’t load. If it is referenced with a
block it works fine.
The Solution: I found the solution in MozillaCssMimeType ( )
some servers are misconfigured and return an incorrect MimeType for CSS files (typically text/plain or application/x-pointplus) which should be sent with a text/css MimeType
Adding "text/css css" to apache’s mime.types file (usually found in /etc/mime.types) solves the problem. For IIS simply map .css to text/css using:
site (or directory) properties, then HTTP Headers>File Types>New Type, .css, text/css.
Now to get to work. I feel two days behind.add a comment
Sometimes there is justice! June 29, 2005 3:34 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
“Justice Souter’s vote in the “Kelo vs. City of New London” decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.“
On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter’s home.add a comment
The proposed development, called “The Lost Liberty Hotel” will feature the “Just Desserts CafÃ©” and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon’s Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged.”
Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.
I-40 closed June 29, 2005 12:05 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
I heard that around mile marker 250 I-40 is closed. Apparently at midnight last night 5 tractor trailer including a mail truck collided and burned killing one person. They are still re-routing traffic down rural roads to Hwy 70 (Kingston Pike). If you are expecting a package or planning on traveling I-40 today you might be in for a surprise.
I cannot find any information online about this which is pathethic either on my part or our news agencies or department of transportation. My information comes from a traveler’s account via cell phone.
Update: Ah! Finally found the incident report.

The irony does not escape me that at the same time Batman Begins starts in the theatres that two bats begin patrolling the sky above my house. One will come in very low above our porch. They are fun to watch.add a comment

The end of chocolate June 28, 2005 11:54 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Let’s say you regularly had chocolate as a treat. Maybe not every day but fairly frequently. One day someone comes along and offers you a serving of the best chocolate in the world. But there is a catch. After eating that piece of the best chocolate in the world you can never eat chocolate again for the rest of your life. That means your regular treat would disappear but you would be left with the memory of this fantastic chocolate.

Man freezes engine and gets 120 miles per gallon.
And the latest on global warming. "experimental reactor seeks to mimic the way the sun produces energy" I see future space explorers teaching their children, "and this is an unusual galaxy. The only one of its kind and we have yet to explain how those two planets evolved an orbit between the two suns, or why the smaller sun orbits the larger sun just like the 8 planets."add a comment

Regardless of wealth, we all die June 28, 2005 5:48 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
“John Walton [No. 11 on Forbes Magazine list of the world’s richest people with a net worth of $18.2 billion], the billionaire son of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton and a member of the company’s board, died Monday in a plane crash in Wyoming.”
The plane was an experimental ultralight aircraft with a small, gasoline-powered engine and wings wrapped in fabric similar to heavy-duty sail cloth, officials said.
