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. In the meantime, they can take solace in the fact that at least their computer in the midst of one of its hourly system crashes.

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.
