I went to a wedding this past Saturday. Both the groom and the bride were close friends of mine, therefore making it hard for me to decide which side of the isle to sit on. I got some surprise attention during the reception, when Davie’s father credited me as the “match maker” during his speech. Then I realized they did meet at a house party I threw in college. That was over eleven years ago.

I’ve gone to many weddings over the years. When I was single, I wondered when it would be my turn. Now that I’m married, I wonder what took these people so long.

Davie and Zusan, I wish you guys the best.

Hmm.. the the video is a little bit transparent like the background of your content div — pretty cool :)

@Dmitry, speaking of transparency, do you know how to fix anti-alias rendering problem with transluent background with IE7? Look my site in IE7, you’ll see the text is jagged, not anti-aliased. This is happens if the background div has an opacity setting. The solution I read was to give the background a color as well. I did that, but doesn’t work…

Unfortunately I don’t know anything about that problem, sorry. I guess you could hack it by using a transparent png for the background, but that’s not exactly a fix.

transparent png would be my last resort…

sigh, why can’t MS get it right..

http://www.transcendingcss.com/ — don’t hack it, leave it to be a side-effect of using an older browser :) Different browser = difference experience.

that’s why I’ve been putting it off. Especially since IE7 makes up a very small % of my traffic.

http://www.mandarindesign.com/opacity.html is a good resource for transparency in various browsers.
