[10:54:06] <watt> Well, that was interesting. Decided to talk what was probably the longest walk I've even done around 2:30 am, and it started raining heavily a third of the way through.
[10:54:21] <wjp> hi
[10:54:42] <watt> s/third/two-thirds/
[10:54:45] <watt> hi
[10:55:13] <watt> had to stop off at an all night grocery store and call up a friend
[10:56:22] <watt> so whatsup?
[11:16:37] <wjp> hm, not much :-)

[18:05:05] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[18:05:31] <Dominus> hi
[18:05:35] --- Dominus gives channel operator status to watt
[18:07:30] <Dominus> watt: I enjoyed your take on the homepage
[18:08:04] <Dominus> quite funny the thing.
[18:08:41] <wjp> hi
[18:11:20] <Dominus> IMO watt can go ahead and change the site if he's eager. Only thing is that I quite liked the way we "hid" the screenshots in the present version :-)
[18:13:06] <Dominus> oh and I also think the about page should not feature our email addresses in plain form but a little bit off (like developerATuser.sourceforge.net)
[18:13:30] <Dominus> I'd also likr our changelog to be changed to something like that
[18:19:16] <Dominus> didn't know that Mata Hari was from the netherlands...
[18:25:36] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Remote closed the connection)
[19:22:49] <watt> wjp: It would be capital because I yet again screwedup
[19:23:00] <watt> dammit.
[19:46:46] <watt> there we are.. fixed.
[22:30:36] --> DarkeZzz has joined #pentagram
[22:31:11] * wjp watches Darke sleepwalk into the channel
[22:32:53] <DarkeZzz> Power failure. I feel like I'm sleepwalking after being worken up to the beeping of an annoyed ups. *grin*
[22:39:19] <watt> hi DarkeZzz
[22:40:03] <wjp> watt: btw, if you want that op to be permanent, you should register your nick with nickserv :-)
[22:43:13] <watt> oh.... didn't even notice it being applied.
[22:43:32] <wjp> that was Dominus :-)
[22:48:45] <watt> ok... think that does it
[22:49:12] <-- watt was kicked from #pentagram by wjp (let's see ;-))
[22:49:13] --> watt has joined #pentagram
[22:49:13] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to watt
[22:49:20] <wjp> yup, works :-)
[22:49:29] <-- Darke has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[22:52:19] <watt> is there something that generates the html for the faq and doco from the text?
[22:52:41] <wjp> exult? they're both generated from an xml file
[22:53:12] <watt> that would make sense.
[22:53:43] * wjp hmms... (about the navbar) would it possible to change the links to 'real' text instead of an imagemap?
[22:53:59] <wjp> should be possible with some CSS, right?
[22:54:07] <wjp> would make maintaining it a bit easier
[22:54:23] <watt> possible... playing alot with divs then.
[22:54:43] <watt> least I think divs can overlap legally in css.
[22:55:17] <watt> However, I'm not sure about how to generate the text.
[22:55:41] <wjp> do you have the background image without the text online somewhere?
[22:55:53] <wjp> (I really like that image, btw :-) )
[22:56:04] <watt> thanks... yeah. 1 sec
[22:58:08] <watt> http://fallofrome.dyndns.org:8080/web/images/pentblank.png
[22:59:08] <watt> transparency wasn't quite perfect on it.
[22:59:29] <watt> looks pretty good on most light backgrounds.
[23:03:50] <wjp> one way would be to set the image as the background on the navbar dir
[23:04:15] <watt> True,
[23:04:57] <wjp> have to be careful the heights work out
[23:05:58] <watt> Wishing I would have saved that text layer separately now.
[23:06:37] <wjp> hm, you're planning to use images for them?
[23:07:21] <wjp> although I guess that would be the easiest way to get them to match the background
[23:07:35] <wjp> s/match/fit in with/
[23:07:55] <watt> Plain text would be very hard to have look right... especially if the end user doesn't have the correct fonts
[23:08:50] <wjp> well, an imagemap is still always possible too :-)
[23:08:57] <wjp> anyway, I really have to go; bye
[23:09:05] <watt> later
