Frustrated .. #$#@%

    Had a good weekend, although I did let down my viewers on Sunday for the broadcast because I had fallen asleep. Friday and Saturday were both pretty ok broadcasts and it was nice to have some viewers. Was also happy because I made further progress on my website. Really proud of the way my pictures were showing on my website.Well, ... yesterday I wanted to upload some more pictures to show in my newly created picture cycler, but ended up doing nothing instead. Was not really in the mood for coding. Today however I felt a lot better and started full of energy, hoping to accomplish a lot. Figured I might as well check for cross browser compatibility.
    I wish I never did, although it's good to know if things work well in all internet browsers. All works great in Internet Explorer, no problems there, but @%@!#!$. Why can't all browsers just handle some simple code the same way. I found out that CSS rules are interpreted completely different across browsers and my JQuery code for the cycle plugin didnt work in FireFox, Opera and Google Chrome. I spend all frikkin day trying to solve differences and make it work for all browsers, but I just can't. I managed to get the styling (CSS) pretty ok now and it does look pretty similar whatever browser you use, but only Internet Explorer seems to be able to deal with anchors assigned to the smaller navigation buttons created with the JQuery cycle plugin. I just can't figure out why other browsers won't do anything when clicking one of those damn anchors to make related picture show. This completely spoiled my mood and I planned to do other things as well. Now it seems like all the hard work I did to create it is going down the drain again. So tired of this bullshit crap and browsers acting completely different. The code works perfectly fine and should work across all browsers, I am about to give it up completely. Might as well go back to the stupid old way of embedding a boring Picasa slideshow which links you to their website whenever you click the frikkin play button. All I have left to say about this is ... SIGH !

  1. Maybe I should just try Lightbox, another JQuery plugin, but for now I just need a break.
