Roach Cove Hike

8:44 PM June 17, 2008







A few weeks ago I went on a hike with Steve, Graham Scott and Jeff. We hiked through Roach Cove and around Lake Matheson. I took a few photos along the way, and have posted some of them above.

I've also made a few small changes to the website. I upgraded to Firefox 3 today and noticed that it made scrolling my website choppy. This was caused by the combination of a few things, but mostly because I had a static background image with a scrolling transparency overtop of it. So I updated my background image so that it tiles nicely and removed the static restraint. Now when you scroll down the page the background will scroll with you. That seems to have fixed the choppiness, and hopefully it will make this site scroll faster in general for everyone (Firefox 3 or not).

The other change I noticed with the new version of Firefox is their new text rendering system. In general, the text on most websites looks better now. But again, with my use of transparent backgrounds there are issues with text. Now the text ontop of my black transparency looks thinner and slightly harder to read. I tried to make the font weight a bit thicker without going fully bold, and that helped slightly, but it's still not as crisp as it use to be. So it may be time for a complete new website design in the near future.
