    It's my test for XHTML 1.1 (not just XHTML 1.0 Strict or Transitional) and PostgreSQL instead of lowly MySQL. The only thing I wish it could do is send the proper content-type (application/xhtml+xml, not text/html), but IE doesn't support it.

    You can comment on the site, but not anything political about it. It's obviously based on Senator Ted Steven's "series of tubes" remark and is only to point out the ignorance of politicians--not necessarily Stevens--who make authorative comments about technology without having a clue what they're talking about. Politicians representing both major political parties make comments about the Internet, computer and video games, etc. without exactly thinking them completely through.

    The truck image is simply pulled randomly from the filesystem. The text "(it's a series of x tubes)" is pulled from a PostgreSQL database. I'll save you my mainfesto on switching from crappy MySQL to vastly superior, fully relational, modern, speedy PostgreSQL. All I'll say is that views are good and it took MySQL five major versions to add them.

    How do you get in? All I see is a "random" image, an arrow and tiny bit of text.

    Are we suppose to review that??!

    Well as I said, it's only a concept test of some new technologies (XHTML 1.1 and PostgreSQL). I'm going to use it as a play area for testing some new things that I can't run on the production server, like the beforementioned PostgreSQL.

    Great Truck !
    The arrow is very perpendicular and maybe 2 mm too long for my liking.
    The grey font is very very pleasing to the eye and contrasts well with the colorful truck image.

    All in all a fantastic web site

    So what is it that we are supposed to be commenting on? The picture? The arrow? The string of text that appears to be a hit counter?

    Why did you choose all trucks? Conceivably, everything not the internet is "not the internet".

    How 'bout a picture of Ted Stevens?
