  1. I think it might be possible the file on your Diablo CD may be damaged as well. Is your CD still in good shape or no? Edit: Now that I think about it, I think if you create a Blizzard Account at http://battle.net/login you can add your Diablo CD Key to the games you own. From there, you might be able to get Diablo as a digital download from the Blizzard website. I know they do this with Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and Diablo II--all games I have on their system. I think it is likely they do it for Diablo as well.
  2. I've come across a number of excellent Free Software Fonts over the past few months and I thought I would share them with you guys. All of them are freely licensed, and embeddable without restrictions. The details vary (check the license included in the packages), but that is pretty much the gist of it. I generated all of these previews using ImageMagick and a script, so bear in mind they'll (probably) look a bit better (less jagged, mostly) on your screen, and they'll all look good in print. Also, all of them boast support of large portions of unicode (meaning they have characters for >9000 languages). I'm no designer or anything, but to me these fonts look pretty good, and I can include them in projects without having to worry about licensing or anything. I hope you may find them useful as well! DejaVu Sans Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Sans. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Only thing I don't like so much about the DejaVu (and Bitstream) families is that they are noticably larger than "regular" fonts. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Extra Light Bold Italic DejaVu Sans Mono Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Sans Mono. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Bold Italic DejaVu Serif Description: Based on the Bitstream Vera Serif. Meant to improve on the font and extend it into unicode as well as provide additional styles. Website: http://dejavu-fonts.org/ Download: DejaVu Fonts 2.30 Regular Bold Italic Gentium Basic Description: Serif font, a little fancier than Times, but still formal. I use it over regular Gentium because this package includes Bold/Italic versions. Website: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.ph...item_id=Gentium Download: Gentium Fonts 1.1 Regular Bold Italic Gentium Book Basic Description: Similar to Gentium Basic, but it is a little heavier (thicker). I think it looks better on paper than Gentium Basic. Another reason I like it is because it is slightly wider than the average font without being obvious. Good for extending a term paper's length without additional work! Website: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.ph...item_id=Gentium Download: Gentium Fonts 1.1 Regular Bold Italic Liberation Sans Description: The Liberation font family is designed to be a replacement for Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier New--while mostly maintaining their characteristic look. It is because of this they are included in most Linux distributions by default. In my opinion, compared to Arial, Liberation Sans is a bit tighter, more uniform, and cleaner. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Liberation Serif Description: Liberation Serif is designed to be a replacement for Times New Roman. In my opinion, similarly to Liberation Sans, Liberation Serif is tighter, and more uniform than the font it is intended to replace. It is also a bit blockier, making it look a bit better on the screen and more formal. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Liberation Mono Description: Similar to Courier New, Liberation Sans is a bit heavier than Courier, it also drops a lot of the serifs from the letters, making it easier to read on the screen. This is the font I use in my text editor. Website: https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ Download: Liberation Fonts 1.05.2 Note: For some reason, the project's website doesn't have a ttf version of the most current version (1.05.2). I compiled the latest version to ttf and linked it above. Regular Bold Italic Linux Libertine Description: Designed as a replacement for Times New Roman, Linux Libertine tries to be similar to Times, but makes a few small improvements here and there. Website: http://linuxlibertine.sf.net/ Download: Linux Libertine 4.41 and Linux Biolinum Regular Bold Italic Small-caps Linux Biolinum Description: A part of the Linux Libertine package, Linux Biolinum is a "grotesque" sans-serif font still in development. It's kind of got its own thing going on. Website: http://linuxlibertine.sf.net/ Download: Linux Libertine 4.41 and Linux Biolinum Regular Bold http://dl.dropbox.com/u/40722/font-preview...d-0.4.1.ttf.png (Had to link, hit the image limit) Here are some other sources if you're looking for more free (as in speech) fonts. Free software Unicode Typefaces - Wikipedia SIL Fonts - SIL International Open Font Library - A bit of good, a lot of meh. Cheers!
  3. I think the problem with using only five posts is the sidebars would almost always extend past the bottom of the content, which I don't think looks too good.
  4. I don't have much control over the content. The great thing about having a CMS my users are comfortable using is that I don't have to worry about updating the content myself! Yeah, we're using Wordpress MU. We used to use Joomla, but it didn't fit our needs and was pretty confusing to use sometimes, so we ditched it. Thanks, for the input, both of you!
  5. Well, after a lot of time and effort, I've finally managed to roll out the new version of my website. Some of you may recall me asking for your critique on the old version in another thread. I'm just wondering what you guys think of it. You can check out a screenshot of the old template for comparison if you'd like. The website is my clan's website, constantmayhem.com.
  6. Maybe so, but with the OP's goal (emphasis added): Using photoshop would require someone to be using photoshop! I picked up the vibe that he wanted the customer to be able to use whatever image he wants in the background and have it just work. OP: Check this out: Cross-browser semi-transparent backgrounds. Basically, you use the transparent png and an MS filter to make it work in IE6. The author also has a few other links for semi-transparent backgrounds on the page. Good luck!
  7. Be careful though, using opacity on an element also lowers the opacity of its children. Example
  8. You could use a semi-transparent PNG as the background and have that tile. IE6 would have problems though. Maybe you could just let IE6 have a solid white background.
  9. So let me get this straight, you have a relationship set up between types and numbers, right? I see what you're talking about now, but I'm not very familiar with database relationships. Sorry.
  10. I'm pretty sure if the value violated anything, the database would reject it as well. Could you be a little more specific?
  11. I lowered the contrast on the stripes. It does look a little better now, it seems like there is more focus on the content now. Suggestions are good. I usually don't get much feedback from the guys I made the website for, so this input is helpful to me.
  12. I see, the idea behind it was that I wanted a pretty dark neutral background, but I wanted something more interesting than a solid color. Do you think the contrast should be reduced a little more or something? Thank you for the review.
  13. Here is a site I've had up for a while, let me know what you think! http://www.constantmayhem.com/ Coded in Notepad++. Graphics made in GIMP. I ask because I'm considering a revamp of the template (mostly to make it a fluid layout--the basic look of the template will be pretty much the same).
  14. That might actually work on a few of them.
  15. Aye, but sometimes it is hard to get the "helping humanity" part across to them. They hear you start talking about proteins and misfolding and the like, and eyes glaze over. That is why I'm seeking insight here. College Hill.
