The Additional Entry Text of this entry contains the complete contents of my MovableType Main Index Template for this blog. It might be interesting to you if you’re trying to learn how to do something I’ve done here. (Note that it is my ugliest template; I tend to do lots of testing and futzing with this blog, so it gets the most code bloat. The templates for the other six or ten blogs I’m running are much cleaner.) Click “read more” to see.

  1. Thanks for posting the sample. Couple of questions:

    1. The “good stuff” admin link — I assume that points to the entry where you talked about thje site?

    2. Mozilla & Opera seemed to have some problems doing the right float (at least at my screen resolution) If you resized smaller, the right would eventually drop below the left float (if it didn’t alread start there). Just wonder if anyone else had reported similar problems.

    btw, thanks also for the blogdata template tutorial as well. I had to fudge and make a the icon layout using a table to get presentable results in NS4 .7

    ps – on 2, I had to define a width of <30% on the right float to get both floats side by side under Mozilla.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
