Browser-safe Web color palette declared dead.
Great news for anyone who actually still uses the accursed thing.
Next frag : 800x600 !
You can't frag 800x600. Unless you mean fragging [spl?] designing sites for particular resolutions entirely. Maybe we could frag that.
If we frag 800x600, we have to frag 1024x768 and all the others too.
What does frag even mean?
It's a nerdish way of saying "to get rid of", originating arguably in Quake.
Webmonkey debunked it a while ago anyway, but glad to see an 'official word'.
The term predates Quake, actually. In Vietnam, "fragging" was the process whereby soldiers would on occasion rid themselves of a hateful or grossly incompetent commanding officer, usually by means of lobbed explosives. (It happened. I know a guy who 30+ years ago participated in a fragging, figuring that the lieutenant in question was, unchecked, going to get both himself and the rest of his men killed.)
None of which, I guess, has anything to do with the 216-color palette, whose passing I applaud.
You're saying 800x600 resolution is the next-worst thing to the browser-safe color palette? Gimme a break.
The 800x600 res isn't nearly as bad as browser-safe, but it has its own little annoyances. E.g., when your mother decides that she likes her taskbar on the side of her screen instead of the bottom and wonders why she has to scroll around so much on her bank's website. Sigh.
Re: David's Mother
We could blame that one on Microsoft for allowing the toolbar to be moved to the side of the screen.
Levis don't allow me to wear my jeans on my head, because it would mess with my functionality. Same thing... Exactly.
It's fun to blame things on Microsoft. It's like guiltless bitching. You're never going to turn around and find Microsoft standing right behind you, looking hurt.
After you receive a signal, you free dish network will want to continue to adjust the dishsinologies azimuth to try to get the best possible free directv signal from the thing Make sure there free direct tv are no trees or other obstacles in direcway the way of the dish and then connect direct tv the dish to the digibox and switch directv on the power.
The dish cable carries free satellite tv a small electric current so never connect digital satellite tv or disconnect it while the digibox is live otherwise it could arc and destroy some of the electronic components
If you want to use a doublezowie signal meter,
satellite dish I suggest you swing the dish until satellite tv you get the highest needle deflection
doublezowie or audible tone then maintaining that free satellite tv horizontal angle, raise or lower the get free satellite tv for free elevation of the dish to see if the Dish Network meter will go higher still. At the
Direct tv highest signal level, watch the screen dish network for the digital readout changing. If satellite tv it doesn't, then you're not pointing at the right satellite system.
New or reconditioned parts and products
get satellite tv for free
is clearly the best choice for satellite internet.
free-satellite-dish-network-directv-direct-tv free satellite tv. Don't worry
free satellite tv will be available forever!
satellite tv, satellite dish
instead of cable
immediately. after switching to the
Free Satellite dish tv Dish Network DirectTV tv sets,
is the next obvious step.
Those free satellite tv
customers who own Dolby Digital systems by including
