Liverpool GeekUp and the new Upcoming.org

I just discovered that the new Upcoming.org site has been released and very nice it is too. The first feature I used was to change my location to Liverpool rather than London. I’m not a particularly practised Upcoming user but I’d never managed to tame the ‘metro’ thing on the old site.

With my location changed to Liverpool I was pleased to see the Liverpool GeekUp spring up on the ‘front’ page.

We’ve had a Manchester GeekUp for a good while now but Stuart and I thought it was about time we got a Liverpool version going and with Andrew’s blessing we have done.

So, on the last Thursday of every month we will be holding a ‘GeekUp’ at 3345 Parr St in Liverpool, from 6pm onwards. If you have an interest of any description in all things Internet and are local to Liverpool, come along…

Make yourself look like Pete Townshend

Look at yourself in the back of a spoon.

Note: whilst I thought this was funny, I unfortunately didn’t make it up. I also am not sure of the original source so apologies to the author.

CSS Padding and Width…

Is it only me that thinks that the ‘padding’ value of html elements getting added to the width value of html elements is stupid? ‘Margin’, yes that should be added because it is on the outside of the element but if I set a div to be 750px wide I don’t mean it to become 770px wide when I add 20px of padding.

Whose bright idea was that?
