West Quay Apple store

Just got back from Southampton (~30 miles away from where I live). The new Apple Store in the West Quay shopping centre opened today, and I managed to get my hands on an exclusive t-shirt for apparently being one of the first 1,000 people to go in!

I managed to leave without buying anything, this time. It was pretty cool to go there and be there for the opening, but it was really packed and I was queueing for over an hour to even get inside in the first place!

While there, I also discovered a rendering bug with this site under Safari (which doesn’t show up in Konqueror), so I’ll have to take a look at that and hopefully get it fixed!

UPDATE: I can’t seem to see the same issue using BrowsrCamp to get screenshots, so I have no idea what caused the bug. In case it shows up again, the sidebar on the left seemed to have the text appear twice – once on top of the existing text, so you couldn’t read it. Anyone else see this/not see this with Safari?

UPDATE #2: This bug is really nasty. I’ve been unable to get it to consistently happen, so I’m afraid I’m unable to fix it. If anyone else comes on this site on Safari and sees this bug, please screenshot it, tell me as much as you can what you were doing when it happened and send me the information. Thanks.

    Gimme a second… I’ll see if I can find anything. Do you remember the specific page that you found the mistake?

    It was on /blog, all the non-WP pages were fine.

    Unless it was some weird thing Apple had done to Safari which broken it…

    Err… I think I found it. Quite the rendering error!

    By the way, here’s a request when you get your Mac – make a SIMBL plugin for Safari so folks like me who love bookmarks bar favicons can have them display. It’s one of the most annoying things about browsers on the Mac. Fortunately in Safari and Camino you can hack your userChrome.css, but Safari isn’t as easy to play with.

    If you need more, let me know…

    I should mention, I’m in Safari now and I no longer see the error. I dunno if it is Safari being stupid or you fixing the code, but it has appeared to have stopped.

    Is it just me being stupid or is the bug not there in that screenshot you posted? I can’t see anything wrong!

    It’s a really weird bug. Are you still on a /blog page? The non-WP pages are apparently fine.

    The weird thing is I can’t get Konqueror to do it at all – and it’s usually Safari that works and Konqueror that doesn’t when it comes to KHTML vs WebKit rendering.

    The error only happens on the first page view. It is likely a Safari bug. Once you refresh, it’s fine. I cleared cache and snagged a shot of the error, pre-refresh…

    Yep – that’s the one I saw earlier.

    I’m getting to work tracking it down now.
