From ChronicP!nk‘s web-log :
“You’ve got mail”
Red and stout, alone on the kerb,
His mood never screamed; Do not disturb.
Ever waiting, with black lips open,
Looking out for passerby’s, men or women.
Hungry forever, he looked for a bite,
Alas, he ate something I write.
For years he stood and gobbled my thoughts.
Zilch as an output for inputs as lots.
No. 201, Archbald street,
“You’ve got mail” the postman bleat.
Drowned in the soup of curiosity,
I ran eagerly to my serendipity.
I stared at the envelope,
With optimism and hope,
*pinch* I couldn’t be dreaming,
Even if I was I wouldn’t try waking.
I finally drew myself to the glue,
Unaware of its origin from where or from who,
I grasped it tightly, a firm hold.
My impatient fingers ripped the fold.
Shell-shocked, I dropped it on the ground,
The sight of the sheet made me drown.
I rubbed my eyes and hastily blinked,
Reality bit me, not a word was inked.
Really loved these words …
How cool can it get. On the very first day at office you get to do things that you just simple love doing?
The Case : A page is displayed with a certain width in IE. But is taking the whole width in Fx …
Sounds familiar ? They where about to tag it as an Fx bug. Wait a sec!!! That’s not a BUG in Fx. Its just the way Fx is handling things. Pop in some things i read at Joel’s blog – Martian Headsets. Voila!!! all agree that its not a bug… . I’m happy, they are happy …
Here is my simple explanation :
Its all with the implementation difference of the two browsers.
In US you drive on the right side of the road. Hence all cars are left-hand drive.
Bring the same car to UK/India where we drive on the left side of the road, things seem to be a bit mixed up. You car is not buggy nor is the law in place. Cars are always designed to place the driver towards the center of the road. in UK it has to be the right side of the car, but in US it has to be the left side. There is no way out.
Why is there this problem? Coz all the countries doesnt have the same traffic rules. They have some basic guidelines in place and have the law built around it to match them. Simple!!!
To solve these confusions. Own a McLaren F1 car. It has a 3-seat setup, with the driver in the center. You never will have problem again. Just that you would have to be filthy rich ..
