>Fucking computers.

>Actually I should say ‘fucking web browsers’ – why can’t they all do something as simple as display the fucking page the same way? For a while now I’ve had this blog set up with a look I like and that I’d adapted with my very limited knowledge of HTML from a Blogger template, only to suddenly find out that that’s when you look at it in Safari on a Mac. Opera seems to be okay but the title and picture is slightly off in Firefox which makes the bad language warning hard to read. As for Windows, every browser seems to be wrong including the two that were right in OS X. Making it bold seems to make it stand out more but fuckety fuckety shit, I liked it the way it was. Yeah, sure, it’s only my blog and hardly the end of the world but it’s annoying all the same.

So, if you’ve never noticed the comment in the title that there will be bad language I suggest you go and buy a Mac and use Safari or Opera, and then my tendency towards Anglo Saxon won’t risk offence since you’ll be able to see the warning. True, I use the F bomb before you even get that far, but at least it’ll look like I intended it to. On the other hand if you don’t care I can learn to live with it.




These two work, but it all goes wrong from here.






Shite.

UPDATE: Joe Public comments that I should stick to using Opera, which he feels is the most underrated browser out there. I tend to agree that Opera is underrated and I expect plenty of people – the type who think Internet Explorer is the only browser for example – have never even heard of it. In fact I’ve been using it off and on for the thick end of ten years. But in Windows it doesn’t display the blog title text properly either, and I think it still doesn’t play nice with the bookmark syncher I use. Synching multiple machines is the reason for using mainly Safari at the moment but I miss the mouse gestures and Apple still haven’t put a duplicate tab function on the latest version, the twats. Most of my computer time is spent in OS X anyway where there’s still thing that annoy me hugely, not least Apple’s fucking corporate Messiah complex and their attitude to an ongoing complaint I have with them, but at least I spend more time doing what I want and vastly less swearing at it.

  2. >Have a similar problem; changed the header graphic and faffed around with the header and descriptive text colours as a workaround. It's not the same in all browsers and O/S, but gives a moderately satisfactory result in most.
