No problems - someone had to get the ball rolling. I just hope they're a) right and b) encourage others to get typing (I really don't fancy writing articles for everything) =;)

Re: spec infobox template test

I've moved all this discussion to Template talk:Computer specs full#spec infobox template test. Might as well keep the discussion in the public domain rather than on our talk pages. → ~tl (talk · contribs) 21:15, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to be away!

Just so you know, as of next Monday I'm going to be without an internet connection for a bit. I'm moving into a new flat and it'll take a while to get ADSL activated in there. I'll be trying to check my email/etc every once in a while, but don't expect a speedy response! I wouldn't think that there'll be any problems here and I'm sure you can handle it. Cheers! → ~tl (talk · contribs) 07:48, 29 August 2007 (UTC)


Funnily, the userboxes were never the full width of the container in Safari! I have to say, they look much better now... → ~tl (talk · contribs) 20:01, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Heh…I guess that's what happens when I really only use one browser 98% of the time. ⇔ ChristTrekker z 12:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Label/Sticky colours....

What version of the Mac OS did you get your Label/Stickies colours from? I've just been doing theme mockups for the forums and came up with different colours to you. These are the colours in System 7.5:

Label colours

  • Essential: FF6402
  • Hot: DD0806
  • In Progress: F20884
  • Cool: 02ABEA
  • Personal: 0000D4
  • Project 1: 006411
  • Project 2: 562C05

Stickies colours

  • Yellow: FF9 / FC0
  • Blue: 9FF / 0CF
  • Green: CFC / 6F6
  • Pink: FCC / F99
  • Purple: CCF / 99F
  • Grey: EEE / BBB
  • Black & White: FFF / 000

I've no idea. I requested a screenshot in the forums (thread 4364) since I didn't have the ability to boot Mac OS at the time. Zydeco supplied one. I certainly like your version better (at least for Stickies) from a web designer viewpoint. Is the difference attributable to color depth? ⇔ ChristTrekker z 18:53, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, the colours look a bit washed out in that picture. I took the colours directly from Basilisk II using Digital Color Meter. I would presume they are right. → ~tl (talk · contribs) 19:32, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Oh and they were taken in "Millions" colour mode. I can't seem to get Basilisk to work in 256-colours to check what the label colours are in that. Those sticky colours are 256-colours safe, so I'd guess they're right... → ~tl (talk · contribs) 20:01, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I've made a new version of the sticky note template with the new colours here: Template:Stickybox. I also changed the style so that it's more in keeping with the style of sticky notes when they're not activated – because of this I left out the title parameter too. I think it looks cleaner on the page than the old one did. What do you think? → ~tl (talk · contribs) 21:08, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not seeing any colors on Template:Stickybox. But just change the colors on the existing CSS classes to these better ones. Then they'll be used all over immediately. ⇔ ChristTrekker z 22:01, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I've added new CSS declarations to MediaWiki:Common.css, so you might need to refresh the page a couple of times or clear your cache before they show. → ~tl (talk · contribs) 22:44, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I knew that, really I did… ⇔ ChristTrekker z 14:20, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I've made some more updates to Template:Stickybox. I've added the ability to add one of the icons to it. Thoughts? → ~tl (talk · contribs) 14:03, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Icons are good. ☺ ⇔ ChristTrekker z 14:20, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
