Rocktober is finally here! I'm really excited about Lair of the ManBeast's new look. Unfortunately it will not work in Netscape 4. Oh well, it probably won't be finished until Netscape 6 is out anyways.

As is usually the case with the WWW, I've discovered my amazing pop-up window tool tips don't work consistently across platforms. On a Macintosh (any browser) the pop-up appears just fine, but when you move the mouse off of the link, the window stays there. It will only disappear if you bring focus back to the main window, mouse back over the link, then mouse out. Rather than attempt to fix this, I will let Mac users get an extra puck-mouse workout as they click from window to window.
Today I checked the site on my Mac at work and it looks just as good as it does on my PC. I also tested it on some dinosaur browsers and, although the colors and typefaces were wrong, the content still was readable and logical. The only complaint I have gotten thus far has been from John Burgess, who says my pages take too long to load. I suspect his connection was messed up. Oh well.
My new site has finally launched! This is only the beginning. I hope to add more illustrations and goofiness in the upcoming months, stay tuned! Also, I very proud of the fact that these pages validated (scroll to the bottom) for HTML 4.0 and CSS!! Standards rock!
The new site is pretty much in a presentable state. As time goes by I will add more embellishments, but for now at least there are no broken images. I will spend the the next day or so double checking everything and adding any last minute details.
The page is coming along. I have the directory structure set and my main concern now is generating the illustration which will adorn the site.
