It is great! I've just sent it to Therese and she's sent it to all her
art teaching friends and colleagues. Her mantra has always been
"everyone can draw". Magic.

Yeah, that's more like it. I think I'll start testing against FF, Opera,
Safari, Konqueror, OmniWeb etc but /not/ IE. Testing a site that you've
got working in a real browser is always a disappointment in IE anyway.
Life's too short :)

In other news today's rant will focus on why the fuck Oracle have sent
me a full sized 3D cardboard laptop full of shredded paper this morning?

There's some coke-addled marketing message behind it but I'm buggered if
I can work it out. Apparently they will contact me shortly to explain.
Breath well and truly baited here.

Today I am mostly sick of stupid.
