Well done on the modifications to the Iraq pages. I read the versions the wrong way around and thought you were working for the Republicans!! -- KBullett 15:23, 14 Sep 2004 (GMT)

Wow. You actually have a more restrictive copyright law in Denmark than the U.S. does in this one regard. Usually a photos of a public artwork are completely legit. Anyhow, I figured you were right so I executed the deletion, I just didn't quite understand how that could be. -- Mark 16:57, 17 Sep 2004 (EDT)

In Canada?

I note your 2005 pictures from Nova Scotia. Are you in Canada right now? Make sure to send some email if you're going to be coming through Montreal. --Evan 13:51, 24 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Single column Wikitravel style for your Yopy

Hey Elgaard,

I've put some time into coming up with a single column style primarily for your PDA. Would you mind giving it a look. Just go the the usual place and select "one-column" under Styles.

I used to have a Zaurus myself so I think I've got a clue as to what you're looking for (how wide is the Yopi screen?). It seemed to me that having the right column at all would be a waste on a PDA, so I've collapsed the nav into a menu bar at the top. Try increasing and decreasing the font size by the way. Oh yeah, as usual it's only meant for Mozilla/Firefox etc.

The single column of text and images will squeeze down to the width of the Mediawiki icon (about one word across). Unfortunately the menubar does cause a scrollbar to appear if you sqeeze the column down at all; I haven't yet found a solution for that.

The resolution is 240x320. The browser if Dillo. Dillo runs on many platforms. It only do very simple CSS so far and no javaScript. --elgaard 15:27, 29 Sep 2005 (EDT)

A possible solution

So I think I've found a solution for problem of floating vs. fixed-width for the new skin. Check it out. I've added a toggle switch in the upper right corner. The default is still fixed-width, but the switch sets a 1-year cookie, and should be persistant across sessions so you should only have to ever click it once (until you switch stylesheets). -- Mark 00:41, 7 Oct 2005 (EDT)

Yes, I like it. Of course I would like the other default, but either way I am happy. And it should be trivial to reverse if we get problems. The cookie is fine. I would also like to be able to set it in my user preferences (like skins are set now) as I use many different computers. --elgaard 05:04, 7 Oct 2005 (EDT)
