IE 8 - 9 making me pull my hair out

you have heard the story before site works great in Chrome / Firefox / android phone / Kindle Fire and even IE 7 (changing mode in IE9 developer tools) but is broken in IE 8 and 9.

I have tried everything I can think of but the row heights just don't work right.

http://pookieschmookie.com/ right on the front page.

I took over the site mostly themed and no one had ever tried testing with IE so you can't hurt my feelings if you see something dumb.

PS Murillo is my dog ;-)

Amazon Cloudformation and Commons Presentation

Thanks for a great event this year.

Some attendees were asking if the slides from my Drupal Government Day presentation were available, so here they are:

https://one.ubuntu.com/files/shareoffer/5dfe3e10-0053-4bfa-ae0c-8c705ff3fe31/

I guess with Ubuntu One, you can only share with one person.

I just sent the slides over to Drupal4gov, so they should be posted there soon.

I also copied them here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B4Yr8yX06d9-cTh0UlhBYTlPdHc

There is a keynote, powerpoint, .pdf, and zip file containing html with the slides.
