'[PIC]: Web page Update'
2000\12\21@011732 by Myke Predko

Hi Folks,

I just wanted to point out that I have (finally) redone my web page:

http://www.myke.com

You should find it a lot easier to navigate through and hopefully a lot
faster.  Yes, it has frames and Java, but I'm wondering if it is a problem
for anyone.  In porting the page, I have cleaned up a lot of the information
(there are three missing pages that I know about - I will get them fixed
tomorrow) and you should find the PICmicro projects on the page much easier
to work through and there <i>shouldn't</i> be any problems with the links.
If you see any problems or would like me to add a link to your page please
send me an email (click on "Comments").

I have heard from a number of people who have received "Programming and
Customizing PICmicro(R) Micrcontrollers" and the "PICmicro(R)
Microcontroller Pocket Reference".  Just as an update, I am working with
Peter Crowcroft of DIY Electronics to create a parts kit for the El Cheapo
PCB that comes with the book, if you have any strong feelings about what
should be included in the kit (right now we're just planning for the parts
that are soldered to the board - no PICmicro MCU, cables or wall wart),
please let me know and we'll look at that for you.

This idiot web page changed the size of my browser window.

Please don't do that.

I had my browser window the size I want it and I don't appreciate you fiddling
with it.

    You know, I agree. I HATE programs that determine what size of window
they should be, my screen is mine, I decide how big it should be. It's
almost as bad as programs that place themselves in the tasktray without
asking and then provide NO way of removing them. TTYL

I was curious by the comment that this page changed your browser window
size, so I tried it too.  This is one of those obnoxious pages that decides
it's so much more important than you are that it creates its own new
instance of your browser.  Of course there is no way to control where
Windows decides to put a new browser window, so it gets created wherever
Windows picks.  If you opened Internet Explorer by clicking on the link
above, then it got opened to the arbitrary window.  Unfortunately IE
remembers that and opens there next time too.  Argh!!  I also have my IE
window carefully set up to the size and location *I* want, and don't
appreciate horse's behind webmaster changing it.

So it's not actually changing an existing window size/placement, but rather
"training" IE to start up someplace you don't like next time.

Since there seems to be no shortage of webmasters out there with mega egos
and micro brains, does anyone know how to set up MSIE to always start a new
page in the same window, regardless of what the HTML asks it to do?  I
looked around but couldn't find such a setting.

When I go to this site the window is changed only for the site visit my
setting for IE reset after leaving.
The only thing that I can see is I have Under Internet Options/ Advanced
Launch browser windows in a seprate process" TICKED
Hope this helps.

Regards Art.

Hi Folks,

Well, to avoid having my heritage called into question (along with my ego
and brain size), I have disabled this feature on the page.

I'm sorry to have angered so many people with this feature,

I haven't seen the page, but JFTHOI, I thought I'd add all the
things I really dislike about webpages [keep this thread going].

frames
.asp
back "reloads" the previous page
splintering off new windows
endless java loops
"back" disabled
nowheres to go "back" to
animated gifs
disco music
enormous gifs/jpgs
home pages 10 sheets long
no nav buttons
don;t know where you are, don't know where you're going
cookies
3-column format
black backgnd
non-scalable text
pages that don't print properly [related to previous?]
pages where you have to scroll sizeways
pages that take 60 sec to load
pages with more than 52 colors - all saturated

[must be a few more]

Try Opera http://www.opera.com

This magnificent browser speeds up my work by:
Handling lots of daughter windows in the same main frame
Lots of smart keyboard commands
Efficient screen usage
Full screen mode, and I mean really full screen (which can be shared by one or more site windows) !
FAST (efficient code and use of piping to servers)

Also it is said to be the browser that best holds on to the W3C specifications, so when you develop sites, use Opera to try them out, and if it works in Opera, then it works in IE and Netscape too!

PS  Opera use the same plugin and also the same Java (SUN jre 1.3 IIRC) as Netscape, so if you already have such installed with a Netscape, you do not need to download them.  I have read (there is three(?) user discussions list on Opera) that IBM:s Java is a bit more stable and faster, but have not tried to install that myself.  DS

And, I agree with most of the HTML ideas of previous mails in this thread :)

It is sad to see that some site developers use nonstandard addon functions and so have to selectively use functions for IE and Netscape, and struggle a lot with it, and their site can not be wieved with a browser that adheres to the standard...

So I still have to use Netscape, sometimes MSIE :( for a very few sites.


Regards
/Morgan

Hi Myke, I didn't go onto your site until you had removed the offending
code, Its a pity we cannot get the same reaction from ST who's site persists
in resizing itself to the resolution of the main screen on a multiple screen
display. A pain when the main screen has a higher resolution than the others
and you have IE running on one of the other displays.

I believe you may still have a problem in that on my browser (IE5.5) the
graphics of your book covers overwrite the paragraph of text below the one
that starts "Slow to jump between pages".

Standards are only produced for Micro$oft to enhance ;-)

Chris

How many Microsloth programmers does it take to change a light
bulb?

NONE. They just redefine darkness as the new standard.
