    That sounds like a GREAT idea. On a calm night it would be cool to shoot out over the sea and get stars in the sky and off the water.

    You'd have to drive out pretty far from here for that!! Although, you could go the other way and sail out to sea... it gets really dark out there. Of course, you'd need a boat, and a crew...

    I wish I lived closer to a bigger city. I would love to be able to shoot both lights of the big city and a sky full of stars in one night without a whole lot of travel.

    I bet. I live in a mega-troplis. Silence is ... errm, something that doesn't happen, pretty much ever. Not to mention a night sky dark enough to see that many stars ...

  • Stupid IE and the <hr /> tag?

    Anybody know how to fix the "box" that IE puts around an HR element? I'm using CSS to apply a background image to a design and it works except for that. I've tried setting border: 0 and even applying the same color background to it that matches the color of the background behind it. No go. Any help? Thanks!

    hmm, I never had that problem. Could you screen shot for us?
    You could also use a div with a "border-bottom:" for css.

      I've got code to make a normal flat line.

      Using a background image is... tricky.

      The {color} property controls the rule's color in IE6/7. If your rule has any height to it, you will get a big thick line.

      I had this same problem this week, my final solution was to stick IE6 and 7 with a normal line by setting height to 0 and using padding to push out the background image so other browsers see it right.

      Most people just end up using a div. Sorry I couldnt be any more help. Fortunately IE8 fixes this nonsense.

        Thanks guys. I think for sake of having to reinvent the wheel, I'm just going to scratch the HR tag and go with the old DIV standby. Seems a little easier to make more cross-browser compliant. Thanks for the info guys!
