What's up? Thought some of you might enjoy this concept. I built a temp site for until my full site is ready. So basically, all this is at the moment is a blog site. I thought it'd be neat if the posts were arranged like a conversation similar to that found in iChat.

So...

Opinions would be awesome, good or bad. Oh and yes, my name's Andy (not Frankie) :)

It plays with my head because i keep trying to move that small window or minimize it. But the idea is really cool. It would be nice if we could make the chat window larger so that I can read all of the post at once, without scrolling.

I thought I had some deja vu there for a minute... but then, I knew it! I knew I saw this post somewhere before. I see that you also frequent notebookforums. :)


And...

I guess that's why I have been the only reply over at notebookforums. :)

Ha, yeah! I saw your name and was like "...doesn't he visit notebookforums, too?" There's only a small group of Mac users there, but it's fun due to the wealth of pc knowledge also in existence there (and striking abf down for all of his linux and etc comments).

Thanks for the comments, guys. If non-Mac users don't get it, that's all right. They'll understand at least the idealogy behind it.

Hahhahah... striking down abf is so much fun. :) Stupid, biased, anti apple, uneducated children. :)

That's a great idea. I wonder if you could use some CSS to get the corners of the boxes rounded so they look more like the iChat speech bubbles.

Nice!!

It's funny that you even show the "bug" iChat has by not outlining the entire type box with the blue hilight (stops at the smiley) somtimes.
