Anyway, here's my first slideshow: my sister and I painted my my girlfriend Emily's car.
The location object has two properties which might interest you:
location.search is the part of the current URL beginning with a question mark. Should be easy to parse
location.hash is the part of the current URL beginning with a hash mark (#), which denotes an anchor name in the document# Will McCutchen
In my build of Mozilla 1.6, the prev/next buttons are floating all the way to the sides of the browser window -- the next button to the right of your blogroll, the prev button sticking out a bit to the left of the red border around your main blog div.
Yeah, that button... it worked fine when the slideshow has its own window, but with the sidebar it's causing problems. I have the CSS set to position: absolute; right: 5px;. I'm not sure how to indicate that it should hang out on the right side of its container. float: right, maybe, but I've had bad luck with floats and consistent rendering on different browsers.
IE doubles side margins on floats. Generally, if you float, say, a div, you should set display to 'inline':
...which will fix the right margin for IE without changing Moz, Opera, et al.

On osx, using either Safari or OmniWeb (both use webkit), there is no slide show, just some descriptive text links to jpeg files.# Andrew
Damn you IE! It was working, and then I just tweaked it a little bit, and it broke. Part of this is Mozilla's fault, as it seems much more lenient on syntax and some other rules, so it works where IE breaks. But after fixing that, the stupid buttons aren't working. Stupid IE! I hate you IE!
Floats don't seem to work correctly on Mozilla (haven't tested IE). The prev button stacks ontop of the next button. All that after struggling to apply the float style, because you can't do obj.style.float = 'right'; instead you have to do someOtherObject.innerHTML = '[a style="float: right"][/a]' (this comment system tends to mess up angle brackets, so I replaced those with square brackets). Floats seem really unreliable to me. And I still have to work on the events.
Neat paint job! I have a car of similar age and appearance. If you and your sister happen to be in Sydney with a spare day on your hands... ;)
to bad I can't edit my posting:
sorry for double posting.
I'm currently painting my bathroom .. maybe i don't choose the same design / colors :)
Bye Bye Ian# Jkx
I think you need run svnadmin recover:
fn@lunix:~$ svn co svn://colorstudy.com/home/ianb/slideshow slideshow
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /var/lib/subversion/repository/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
Sweet paint job.
