The website with the Annotated M[UMPS] standards is back.
The new address is:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

This time we'll see if we can assign a proper domain name to this address.
Enjoy!

Thanks, Ed, and greetings!

I use this site for reference every so often, and appreciate your
having it there for us.

I have just one problem: unlike you, I'm sure, I am aging, and I find
it harder and harder to read the text in dull mustard yellow against
a
purple background. The "Contents" pane at left is especially squint-
inducing. Maybe sometime you could revamp your "colour" scheme for us
geezers.

Thanks again,

--George Timson

Hi Ed!

Have you tried dyndns.com? They let you do one free dns address (that
is, in the last 12 years, I've never received a bill for
connelm.homelinux.com.)

Since this web-page is "just a little M[UMPS] program", I made a little
change: you can now choose your own colors.
In the left-hand pane, click on the link for "Change Colors" and then fill
in your favorite colors in the form at the bottom of the pane.
Just a word of caution: the program is not supposed to allow you to select
white letters on a white background, but if you do manage to select a
color-scheme with not enough contrast, you can always click on the bottom
line in the left-hand pane (Reset default colors), whether you can see that
line or not.

After you have selected a new color-scheme, any page that you request
subsequently should show up in the new colors.

Enjoy!

Did you specify your colors as #000000 or as "human-readable text"?
The hexadecimal numbers work for me on both IE and Firefox.
Since the "friendly" version occasionally appears to have some
browser-specific side-effects I try to stay away from that...

The "user-friendly" variety (red white blue) does not work,
but the hexadecimal numbers work for me on both IE and Firefox.

Did you specify the colors as shown in the sample values (#000000) ?
The hexadecimal values work on all browsers that I have tested.
The "human-friendly" values (red, white, blue) are currently not
recognized by the program.

It does not work with FF nor IE7 here.


Did you specify the colors as shown in the samples (#ffffff).

The hexadecimal values work in all the browsers that I have tested with.
The more human-friendly values (red, white, blue) are currently not
recognized by the program.

... well, I guess that all those messages that I got about having no
permission to post to this mailgroup were a bit on the wrong side...

Correction: it works but only in hexadecimal format.

Thanks Ed
