There's a lot of micros and a lot of this future has arrived. graphics modes. Today there's CGA,

problem. How about the portables on Think of your software in terms of tomorrows' horizon? Plan to ignore the Windows, Icons, Menus, and Pull-Downs. Compaq-1? Your customers won't. Even a WIMP can do it (TM).

Configuration

Javascript settings are set via a global

_386
object.

Animation

The loading animation can be configured through the following values:

  • fastLoad
    [bool]
    (default: false) - disable all animation.
  • onePass
    [bool]
    (default: false) - when set, this will disable the second flyby cursor
  • speedFactor
    [float]
    (default: 1.0) - This controls how fast the animation happens. Higher values mean faster animation.

Example:

_386 = { onePass: true, speedFactor: 1.25 };

Note: For the progressive animation to work you may need to set this stanza in your regular CSS:

body { visibility: hidden }
.

Accomodating users without javascript

During a 2018 April fools' prank, a user pointed out that this theme doesn't work without javascript. This is a valid concern, however it cannot be addressed without a user manually doing something since this is just a bootstrap theme.

Luckily, HTML5 permits noscript in the head section which means that style can be put in the noscript section. This means that putting this in the header would permit people without JS on to see the site:

  
    
  

Distractions

While you're here, let me plug another fun project I have. This one includes a 1990's style "made for tv" infomercial I made. It's a better way to search manpages called mansnip. At least watch the youtube video, that took me days.

Let's make software fun again, remember those days? Oh you're too young? Well trust me, it used to be a blast! Let's do that again, it was a good time.

Also you can give me money, as little as $1/month ... Click on that heart sponsor thing at the top ... I'm a sponsorer as well!

Notes

[1] The v3 version kinda sucked. You don't want that, do you? Brooks' 2nd system effect, not just the musings of 1975. Anyway, v4 is coming ...
