Future-Proof journal

Template for a future-proof journal in HTML and CSS. Future proof for the file is practically plain text and if in the future W3C finally loses its grip and web browsers disappear as we know them, you can still extract your information.

This follows my comment on Penguinator's blog post on Plain Text

There are three basic files
  1. The index
  2. An example journal entry
  3. The CSS file handling all styles for the journal

Pop each into their filenames in the same directory...

Desktop environment and window managers application menus are pathetic

Posted 04-02-2010 at 07:39 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

When I used to use a Windows machine, I became sick of its menu system. It takes several clicks to get to the 'all programs' menu and applications spam it with entries when they are installed. On the other hand it was easy to organise the contents of the menus, as they were just the contents of the "/Document and Settings/Username/Start Menu" and Allusers directories.
