You have arrived at the web home of Noah Brier. This is mostly an archive of over a decade of blogging and other writing. You can read more about me or get in touch. If you want more recent writing of mine, most of that is at my BrXnd marketing x AI newsletter and Why Is This Interesting?, a daily email for the intellectually omnivorous.

HTML Problem Solved

Finally fixed my stupid Internet Explorer comment problem and for those of you scoring at home, all it took was adding this to my IE stylesheet:
#comments blockquote {
border-width: 0;

#comments blockquote.noah {
border-width: 0;

Man, do I feel stupid for wasting all that time.

All is not lost, however, and for those of you who have been kind enough to follow my HTML sagas, here are some links for your enjoyment:
