CSS layouts: fixed, rubber, elastic. Pros and cons

What layout layout (using Cascading Style Sheets, CSS) can be considered the best? Each of them has its own hacks (quirks) and its own unique pros and cons. Will one of them be more user friendly than everyone else? How easy will it be? What problems do each of them have and how to get around them? Is one of them easier to compose than the rest? Is there any defective, completely unsuitable among them? Most likely, many will unequivocally answer these questions, but I will not be in such a hurry.

It turns out that the company, which we used to consider the most important developer of innovations, is in fact very conservative and rational in the market. By tradition, Apple itself decides what is needed and what Continue reading

D-Link DIR-300 Setup

The DIR-300 router has been discontinued today, and its more modern version, DIR-300NRU, can be seen on sale. The difference between them is small: slightly different interfaces (NRU cannot be restarted through the interface), different versions of Wi-Fi (G and stripped-down N), different firmware and Russification files. Otherwise, the information is relevant for the new version of the router.

In fact, the English word route means a route. Therefore, correctly and in Russian this device is called a router. But since everyone will look for a router anyway, I will use this name. The article will focus on configuring the DIR-300 router from D-Link. Continue reading
