Interesting! Although I wonder if I can be bothered trying to recreate GEM…

I like the recent activity in this thread!

I really like Maple's and Halian's layout, they look similar yet the primary color difference makes them easily distinguishable from one another. I can't say I've ever used whatever operational system is in the layouts, but it looks really neat so that's all that matters.

I've had this layout for a while now, but I've been progressively changing its colors and backgrounds, trying to make it look better. Old versions of this layout had some issues with the colors, font, spacing, etc. I think it looks nice now, but knowing me, I'll proabably think it looks terrible in a few months or so.

The huge amount of layouts styled like old OSs made me remember I still have an old cmd-like layout that I never used because...reasons! If anyone actually wants it, the code is below:


<style>
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Cousine')
.cmd2000ly {border-style: solid; border-width: 24px 42px 24px 24px; border-image: url(http://i.imgur.com/Qn2y8Ii.png) 24 42 24 24 fill; min-height: 200px;}
.cmd2001ly {margin: -24px -38px -20px -20px; padding: 0 5px 5px 5px; color: #FFF; font-family: Cousine, 'Lucida Console', monospace;}
.cmd2001ly blockquote {border-left: 1px solid #FFF; padding-left: 3px; margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 0;}
.cmd2001ly blockquote>hr {visibility: hidden; border: 0; margin: 2px;}
.cmd2001ly blockquote font:first-child {border-bottom: 1px solid #FFF; font-family: inherit; font-size: 11px;}
.cmd2001ly blockquote>span[style="font-family:monospace;"] {font-family: inherit;}
.cmd2001ly a {color: inherit; font-weight: normal;} .cmd2001ly a:hover {text-decoration: underline;}
.cmd2001ly a::before {content: "🌏";} .cmd2001ly a[href^="https://"]::before, .cmd2001ly a[href^="/"]::before {content: "🔒";}
.cmd2001ly hr {border: 0; height: 1px; background: #FFF;}
.cmd2000ly ::selection {background: #777; color: #999;}
</style><div class="cmd2000ly"><div class="cmd2001ly">
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/Lt5ndaC.png" style="display: block; margin: 0 auto 5px;">

<br>Signature</div></div>



(reminder that you'll have to remove all the line breaks otherwise the layout will glitch on Jul)

Well, I tried my hand at a layout, an OS-inspired one at that after seeing you with your Macs and DOSes... I really, really hope I'm not breaking anything somehow!

Looking good! Although I wonder if it's possible to also get the font working in the body of it, for extra nostalgia. I mean, if you want, that is.

It's meant to mimic Mac OS 9, I believe, and the only real difference is our choice of wallpaper.

Yeah, changed it to also use the font in the body. It's... kinda weird to look at this, but also kinda cool. Almost like I'm looking at some sort of bizarro world wide web that's accessed through MultiView or something...?

Also tweaked a few other things here and there, like how quotes are displayed, based on the cmd-like layout RanAS posted above.

I feel like I'm being left out of this faux-retraux computer layout party.

But that's okay; luckily I had something to fall back on.

...

Of course, this isn't permanent or anything, it's baked into this post. And it'll look REALLY weird if you have auto-updating layouts on (which bypasses the "disable layout" function..!)

aa i like that font

so i'm having an issue with my layout where the fonts are being rendered ~1px higher in chrome than in firefox (you can notice this on the window title and blockquote attribution)

i have no idea how to solve it...

looks like this has something to do with it

It's PC Senior, or "what you get with screen 13 in qbasic" as I remembered it.

The link in that post actually goes to a QBASIC program that I reimplemented-in-PHP; it originated from the Portal 2 ARG.

Old times.

Uhh, looks like the window border image didn't load for you there; that's stored on my Dropbox along with the CSS file itself. Looking at the URL to the image in the CSS, compared to the URL to the CSS in my profile, they were a bit different domain-wise, which might've caused some issues loading the image...? I'm not sure. I changed the image URL to match the CSS', still works on my end, hope it works for you now, too?

Your link colors aren't defined, so they use the default, which on light-on-dark schemes is usually nigh-unreadable.

Just using your everyday generic layout made with your everyday layout generator.

I should probably get a new layout at some point but eeehhhhh....

EDIT: Speaking of new layouts and OS themed ones, I might attempt to make a Plan 9 one.
