How to find newsgroup FAQs:
- Do they work or not
Note: These are all outside links. Maybe I'll get around to writing some stuff for this here wiki.
A few self-referencing links never hurt
- How much I love the Wasp
- [Return of the "best viewed with" Parochialism]
- Colour your forms for fun and profit
So I learned a bit about how wikis work, and abandoned my NickName AlpenFalten. Guess I'm the type of guy who always [follows instructions].
But the question remains: If I ignore a Prompting Statement, is it really there?
- Putting a horizontal rule above a new statement can greatly help structuring the page. Otherwise it's just a long string of text, and it's harder to find the places where someone added something. --Matthias Gutfeldt
- Horizontal rules are a big favorite in wikis, even as they have fallen into disrepute in other HTML environments. There seems to be a use for dividing major breaks or shifts with rules, keeping dialogs hooked together with list elements of one sort or another. Sometimes, thoughts get interspersed with dialogs halfway up the page, anyway. The types of pages -- docs, threads, Q&A -- tend to hold types of communications appropriately. People usually know how to do the right thing. Sometimes they just can't be bothered. -- Jerry Muelver
While I was planning my trip to London (15-22 February if you want to know), I came across quite a few interesting sites. Some of them beautiful, some of them fast, some of them easy to navigate, and some of them neither. I guess this is a good cross-section of today's webdesign by amateurs and pros. Now let's see how I can work it into the FAQ...
- [Official London site]
- [London directory]
- [another London directory]
- [Public transport]
- [London in Yahoo]
- [London information in German]
- [Weather in London]
- [British Museum]
- [Victoria and Albert Museum]
- [Museum guide]
- [Acoustic London]
- [Heavy Metal UK]
- [Ticket reservation]
- [The 100 Club]
I got a brand-new IBM 18.1-inch LCD monitor installed and setup yesterday. Then I hit "Elvis Presley" in the Guest Register, and now my monitor has coffee sprayed all over it. There ought to be a special place in Heck for guys like you, Matthias Gutfeldt!
- There is. It's called alt.html
