List of Previous Coffee Breaks

Hello Racers, I've put together a list of previous coffee break discussion subjects. This may help future coffee break hosts to avoid duplicating a topic that's already been covered. Having said that, I see no particular reason why we shouldn't revisit some subjects.

Anyway, for the time being, I've put the list on my web site. I could possibly put it on this blog, perhaps as a side-bar widget, but I'd need to be a blog administrator for this. Liz? Alternatively, I could talk an existing administrator through the procedure (involves some JavaScript).

Wow! I think that's incredibly useful as a referencing tool - thanks for taking the time to do it. It would be great if we could have it as a sidebar thingy.

I don't think we should get too hung up on repetition, but it's great to have this in order to be able to easily revisit old conversations. Cheers!

This is a really good idea. As a relative 'newbie' I've got some catching up to do :o)

I've implemented the side-bar gadget now, but there are a couple of known issues:

1. It's a bit too wide for the side bar, and gets truncated.
2. The table cells need to be top-aligned for text, not vertically centred.
3. The grey colours are not very suitable, given the blog's hyperlink/visited colours.

I'll have a look at these when I get a bit more time. Meanwhile, please let me know if any other issues arise, otherwise enjoy.
