New Stuff in 2004

The audio recordings from are somewhat distorted and will be replaced by better recordings as soon as possible.

The navigation bar at the top of 149 pages is modified so the buttons wrap better in smaller browser windows. I have assistance from people in newsgroups, but I also do much hacking of the code myself.

I modify the look of my home page slightly. The source code is improved with help from the comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html newsgroup.

I am of assistance to ICRA (Internet Content Rating Association). Working with one of their people, I am told Microsoft Internet Explorer's Content Advisor does NOT read the ICRA labels correctly because Microsoft's product is not following the rules. This is news to the ICRA people too, and everyone is sad about it. They will soon fix the problem. This is not the first time I have worked with ICRA. A few weeks ago I discovered a bug in their label generator that they immediately fixed. I feel good to be part of making the Internet safer for children.

Cats and other pets is a new index page for pages about pets. I edit the site map and change relevant navigation links too. Nearly ten years later (in ) I delete the “and other pets” part and now the page and links only say “Cats.”

Caldecat in Fall 2004 shows our wonderful kitty in photographs taken over the course of a month. On I replace one photograph with a new one and make all smaller.

I create a 2004 awards page after applying for several website awards. Much has been done to this website since the last time I sought to boost my ego in this fashion three years ago. Edited 2017-03-30 to remove the hyperlink to the awards page. The page still exists online.

Search page added to this website with the help of some fine folks in the comp.infosystems.www.authoring.site-design Usenet group.
