The New Look
I finally got around to updating k2 to the latest version, and with it, I got the site looking like I had intended it to. No more weird spacing and awkward half default look.
I tested it with Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7, Safari 3, and Chrome in Windows and Firefox 3 and Opera 9.52 in Ubuntu. It seems to work as expected, aside from some weird spacing in IE (or maybe that should be expected). Google Analytics claims 11% of the visitors to this site use Internet Explorer, which feels strangely high considering the content. I’m ok with giving the remaining 11% another reason to switch.
I made the Sierpinski fractal background with Context Free. It is quite a fun program, and very simple to pick up. It took a few minutes to write the script for the background (about 1/100th the time it took to get the CSS looking right).
This is sort of a rough model of what the site is supposed to look like; more when K2 final is out.

What eclecticc is
Hello all (though I’m being a bit optimistic with the word all),
I’m Nirav Patel, a rabble rouser, robot herder, meatsmith, moonshiner, psuedocryptozoologist, and all around eclecticc individual. I’m also a Junior in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. This web log, or blog as it may be known, is documentation of the ideas I have and projects I undertake to provide warning to others of what not to do with their lives.
