    I am quite glad I wasn't tapped. Mostly because I don't have anything prepared, but also because my connection was being very dumb.

    I didn't squish any bugs, sadly.

    Could not find a workaround for this bullshit and I tried everything.

    Basically, I have a 24-bit PNG with alpha transparency. It's a person with a nice gradient drop shadow.

    I'm using JQuery to make it fade into view and then fade out again by using animate(opacity).

    MSIE8 and older can handle a 24-bit PNG with transparency. It can handle animate(opacity). It can't handle both at the same time. It renders the semitransparent area as opaque black.

    It's a completely nonessential aspect of the site, but you know corporate managers

    they're more interested in how things slide and fade into view than they are about the underlying database organization

    Math is awesome. Math teachers though do their damn'dest to beat any possible enjoyment of math out of young children until they too learn that math is drudgery.

    The super irritating thing about this bug isn't that it exists.

    It's that the usual way of checking for bugs in MSIE layouts doesn't replicate this.

    Normally you can take MSIE9 on Windows 7, set the window mode in developer tools to IE8, and see how the page renders in IE8. You can do the same in IE7.

    Doing that, though, does not render this bug. You have to look at it on an actual MSIE8 machine or VM.

    Fuck you, Internet Explorer.

    Oh, that sounds familiar. I remember IE using DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Opacity initially, which I bet CSS3 opacity is also using. The external object happens not to play well with PNG alpha channel. This is the problem with trying to farm off image rendering to system image libraries...

    To be fair if you had to spend 20 years teaching 14 year olds long division you'd probably have a hard time not making it feel like drudgery too.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    I remember looking on Wikipedia at my birthday. I was fairly unimpressed. :(

    I also found out I am not the Chinese zodiac that I thought I was, because of how the lunar year behaves.

    Yep, that's the next thing I'm going to try. It just requires recreating the image in Photoshop for all the possible background combinations since the image itself gets re-used in a couple of different places. I just was really hoping I could fix it using some -ms-filter magic.

    Teachers though do their damn'dest to beat any possible enjoyment of their subject out of young children until they too learn that the subject is drudgery.

    http://www.yo utube.com/watch?v=v-pyuaThp-c

    I can only think of two good teachers I've had in my years of college (including community).

    My (Community College) Unix professor was awesome. Had a real passion for the subject. Also? Threatening to break my fingers if I used the arrow keys in vi is apparently an effective strategy.

    And my Calculus 2 (in "real' college) professor had a strong understanding and was able to explain things well. Scraped a 'c', but that was completely my fault.

    And a few years from now, someone will be looking at the site design, see what you did, and say "why the fuck didn't this guy just use a transparent background? What an idiot."

    And thus the circle of "everyone who came before me is an idiot" continues.

    So the wikipedia article on the Church-Turing thesis is nigh-identical to the first couple of pages of the material I have on the subject for my current Maths course.

    I wonder which way round that happened.
