Iperbox added

As an experiment, I’ve added a slide-show of recent photos from my Ipernity site to the right-hand sidebar. The width of the box appears to vary depending on the browser one uses. In Opera the box is pushed slightly out of alignment to the right. It looks perfectly OK in IE though. Need to test it in other browsers.

Still can’t see how to do it in the main column though.

Watch this space, @artwiculate! In Verona, society is divided between two moieties, the Capulets and the Montagues. Juliet is the most nubile daughter of the Capulet Moiety Juliet Capulet is betrothed to Romeo Montague in accordance with the rules of the moiety, but will societal chains bind true love? At a ball to celebrate her … More…
