decibel :: 02-Oct-1999 05:45 (Saturday) ::

Two quickies (I sound like CmdrTaco (http://CmdrTaco.net) from Slashdot
(http://slashdot.org) now):

First, the stats are currently set to start the stats-run at 1:45GMT
instead of the normal 0:30GMT or so. I'm guessing that this is just a
mistake, but I don't want to screw with it while Nugget's out of town,
so it'll stay this way until at least Sunday night.

Second, I changed the countries page so that it now uses height and width
tags on all the little flag images. This means that the page will display
before all the images are loaded. It's pretty neat to watch all the flags
pop onto your screen in a random order... of course, if you have a fast
link you won't see the effect very well, but I guess that's the trade-off
you'll have to live with. :)

Unfortunately, I didn't get the code changed before the stats-run was over,
so the main countries page will be lacking the new tags until tomorrow
night. If you just can't wait that long, you can see what I'm talking about
at http://stats-decibel.distributed.net/rc5-64/countries.html .
