Bahrain Grand Prix

Great racing today in Bahrain. :) Thanks to Pedro De La Rosa, entire event was very fun and exciting to watch. Spaniard, driving a very stable and fast McLaren, continually tried to overtake, made errors and recovered from them and eventually finished 5th. Particularly fun was his fight with Mark Webber in Williams, as Mark’s car had no problems and Williams outscored McLaren in previous two races.

Rounded corners

Rounded corners are one of the most sought-after graphical elements on the web. Hence we have a myriad of implementation with more or less bloated code. The reason is that you need four hooks to attach the four images needed for flexible boxes. With typical box markup of header plus paragraphs/lists, it can be hard to find appropriate elements, especially with outdated and buggy browser implementations.

Once you do away with browser constraints and develop for the best in the field, all the markup is 100% semantic.

<div class="hifi">

<h2>Nice box<a name="anch2">with anchor</a></h2>

<p>And few...</p>

<p>paragraphs. </p>


div defines the box, h2 defines the header, p defines content and a defines fast-access URL point. Semantic, flexible and good looking. What else to ask for? Apart from browser support, nothing.

Away interupt

I’m going away for three days, to conclude certain family matters.

I don’t like going away when I have many unfinished things here, but this one can’t be postponed. I have another WP theme almost completed, but not enough to be posted. I have few CSS related articles I’m writing for like over a month (but effectively only few hours). I have horrible amount of office work to clear up and this day off will really hurt me when I get back.

There are good sides too: I’ll see my mom and sis again after few months. I’ll get to play more with my new phone - Sony Ericsson T630 (black).

Sepang heat

Like I cursed him.

Giancarlo and Webber crash

Just when Giancarlo had some luck and drove good in season opener, he made an amazingly stupid error in Sepang and basically handed over the team leader role to Alonso. It was obvious that Webber was quicker, he passed GF for the full length, and yet GF did not brake in time. Stupid.
