  • [2020-07-01 06:51:00 UTC] paul: mipearson: glad you like it, xD
  • [2020-07-01 07:04:23 UTC] caitlin: mipearson: that is a very specific mood that I can relate to!
  • [2020-07-01 07:18:48 UTC] paul: Hello to all of the Sizzle visitors! Welcome!
  • [2020-07-03 19:56:01 UTC] kmb: wow this site is beautiful
  • [2020-07-05 01:45:53 UTC] caitlin: kmb: thanks for being a part of it :-)
  • [2020-07-08 12:31:14 UTC] asdfq: Does <font> and [align] out of date?
  • [2020-07-11 07:59:36 UTC] caitlin: asdfq: at the moment we don't have the <font> tag and align= only works on image and table elements. You can use CSS though - like <p style="font-face: arial; text-align: left">
  • [2020-07-18 16:00:40 UTC] snarkclaw: Ooo, the fancy new HTML editor is snazzy! :-)
  • [2020-07-19 07:24:00 UTC] caitlin: snarkclaw: we're glad you like it! The editing experience definitely needed some work, and we think this is a huge improvement
  • [2020-07-19 11:02:19 UTC] paul: i'd love to see some better templates though -- the choice is still pretty slim, haha
  • [2020-07-21 08:29:57 UTC] yot: Hello! Long time no see! I just checked the new HTML editor and it's way better
  • [2020-07-22 03:20:46 UTC] sniped64: hello
  • [2020-07-22 03:31:00 UTC] sniped64: I like the preset for cats, haha :)
  • [2020-07-22 19:04:32 UTC] sniped64: holy crap the button collection that was featured in the home page tips and tricks was my neocities page!
  • [2020-07-22 23:37:22 UTC] caitlin: yot: hi, we're glad you like it! :-)
  • [2020-07-22 23:38:15 UTC] caitlin: sniped64: that's so cool, I love that page!
  • [2020-07-22 23:44:41 UTC] caitlin: Also if you have Neocities, other people have successfully used that for hosting images for their home page here
  • [2020-07-27 01:10:08 UTC] asdfq: So amazing the cups at cornor are!
  • [2020-07-27 19:10:06 UTC] yot: Whenever I try to use the web editor sometimes I write long things either in html or css and the editor takes only close to half of the screen so I suggest enlarging the width of the HTML and CSS editors to solve this small annoyance
  • [2020-07-27 22:24:29 UTC] barinder: Greetings from London!!! Where the gyms have started to reopen and wearing face masks in shops is now compulsory!
  • [2020-07-29 08:15:59 UTC] caitlin: asdfq: we're so glad someone noticed the cups!!!
  • [2020-07-31 23:22:49 UTC] paul: barinder: Welcome! Yeah here in Melbourne (thankfully) masks outdoors are now (sorta) compulsory. Not compulsory enough, if you ask me! For example, joggers are allowed to huff and puff coronavirus mask-free!
  • [2020-08-01 00:02:53 UTC] caitlin: barinder: your page is lending some academic gravitas to Vistaserv, I like it!
  • [2020-08-03 19:21:45 UTC] bird: always remember: there is love in the isopod!
  • [2020-08-17 13:00:39 UTC] yot: I wanted to say hello from the very far future of 2 weeks since the last message here 😜
  • [2020-08-18 06:49:34 UTC] paul: yot: glad to see you back! as it happens i'm just migrating Vistaserv to new hosting. hang tight if you see flakiness!
  • [2020-08-20 12:18:07 UTC] bird: Are our files staying in Australia? Hopefully, everything goes well!
  • [2020-08-21 02:38:24 UTC] paul: bird: No, actually we were hosting on Heroku before, in their default vague "us" region. You don't have many choices unless you pay heaps more. Now, it's on AWS, in the us-west-2 region, which is in Oregon.
  • [2020-08-21 02:39:03 UTC] paul: Come to think of it, we could have put it just about anywhere, but it made sense to locate it close to the largest group of users (to reduce latency), which is as usual the USA :)
  • [2020-08-24 15:42:30 UTC] barinder: caitlin: thanks! though i'd rather say that Vistaserv is lending some academic gravitas to my webpage!
  • [2020-08-31 06:38:51 UTC] paulnzz: very nice
  • [2020-08-31 10:22:25 UTC] caitlin: paulnzz: thank you, and welcome!
  • [2020-09-19 18:43:34 UTC] static: hello!
  • [2020-09-19 18:54:41 UTC] static: a bit silent here
  • [2020-09-21 23:27:43 UTC] caitlin: static: hi! we are still around :-)
  • [2020-10-01 00:16:26 UTC] asdfq: saying goodbye to Flash...
  • [2020-10-02 02:57:27 UTC] caitlin: http://mackerelmediafish.com/
  • [2020-10-02 07:42:29 UTC] bird: the link to the fish didn't work!
  • [2020-10-03 02:45:48 UTC] howardsprings: Woah it sure is hot out here!
  • [2020-10-03 07:11:45 UTC] caitlin: bird: I think it might not work if you're blocking javascript?
  • [2020-10-03 14:22:06 UTC] asdfq: Thanks!
  • [2020-10-03 18:11:46 UTC] bird: @caitlin: the fish website was actually down, but now it's up again. and scripts are required, true. and it's definetly strange.
  • [2020-10-20 21:16:46 UTC] jasonsworld: hi guys :)
  • [2020-10-21 01:10:26 UTC] jasonsworld: does anyone know if there is a way to make other pages besides the homepage? like Vistaserv.net/jasonsworld/blog.html
  • [2020-10-21 07:10:47 UTC] caitlin: jasonsworld: hello, welcome! At the moment home pages are just one page, but Vistaserv member Yot came up with a nice way to make it look like multiple pages with CSS: https://members.vistaserv.net/yot
  • [2020-10-21 07:11:52 UTC] caitlin: If you look at the source code for that page that might give you some ideas. I like your home page, by the way :-)
  • [2020-10-22 08:00:46 UTC] yot: if checkboxes were possible to add I could do so many cool stuff in CSS with the "checkbox hack" - https://css-tricks.com/the-checkbox-hack/
  • [2020-10-22 08:01:47 UTC] yot: (currently they are blacklisted)
  • [2020-10-24 01:23:55 UTC] barnumeffekt: hello there
  • [2020-10-28 23:43:53 UTC] paul: barnumeffekt: better late than never, hullo! Welcome!
