Welcome to my homepage
Choose one of the subsections to the left or read my diatribes below.
If you have any questions or comments email me at lee at whatley dot org.
If you are using Microsoft IE, this page will not render the way I intended it to. I suggest you use Mozilla.
If you are using Lynx, you rock.
If you are the one visitor using Opera on BSD, or if you are using Konqueror or some other non-Mozilla-based browser please let me know if the site looks something unlike this
Ok I finally got my AC adapter back, so the webcam is again functional. Now I can make sure you punks don't sneak into my room while I'm gone for Spring Break.
Oh I forgot to mention, the webcam is going to be down for awhile. It's been down since Friday. I let someone borrow the AC adapter for the camera.
I got bored so I created a favicon.ico file for the site. It is a red-saturated profile of my head that I use as my "user icon" for XDM. At the 16x16 favicon size it just kind of looks like a blob. Here is the full size image that I use for my XDM icon.
In addition to this, I fixed the problem of the logo being uneven in different browsers. I had to put it in a table to do this (since you can't control a span's height) so I guess I can't completely get away from tables.
Ok well the new stylesheets are in place. The bulk of the website is now using CSS2 positioning instead of tables. This should speed up page loading and make the site more search-engine friendly. With the change comes some quirks though. Alot of the margins and paddings are wierd and some of the text doesn't line up where it should on certain pages. I plan on fixing this soon, don't worry.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Well the move to lee.whatley.org has started. Right now most of the content still resides on www.cba.ua.edu but I should have the move completed by the new year.
UPDATE: Ok all of the content and the database has been moved. The next step is to revamp the layout. Hopefully I will be able to remove all of the tables and have a CSS2/XHTML-compliant web site.
Paper procrastination has led to yet a new feature: My shared calendar!
The calendar table will list events I have planned for the month and is updated once an hour through RSS. I think the hourly update is probably overkill since I don't really plan things very often, but maybe this will force me to. I highly recommend for mozilla users to check out Mozilla Calendar. It works like Apple's iCal and lets you sync up to webdav enabled http servers. Also phpicalendar and fase4 rdf are handy utilities to have if you plan on doing shared calendaring.
