Been a while

Wow it’s been a while since I did anything here…so here I be. Doing whatever. And what might you all be doing? Nothing I assume. So there. Have fun doing whatever you’re doing.

School’s out and I’m working full days (finally).

Playlists

Okay, so I’ve left the playlists on here, and with my resizing scheme, it looks as if they are going to work. So I’m not going to take them back down. Enjoy them from the privacy of my own blog and avoid the advertisements that so easily plague us. Sounds biblical.

84% on a math test. Wow I haven’t done that well since, well, College Algebra three or four years ago. This brings my average for Calc 2 up to 82.5%. Looks like I might just pass the class (and get a high GPA to boot).

Anyway, it’s Christie’s birthday, so check out http://www.youtube.com/depwl9992 for the latest videos (one of which we recorded last night for the birthday and the very newest that we did a couple months ago). Everyone who’s seen the basketball video has just about laughed their heads off. So hope you enjoy that one too. I’ll keep the birthday video featured for a little while, then I’ll go back to the “most recent.”

Cowman update: it is NOT coming along. The director is fairly busy with her senior year of high-school, so she hasn’t had much time to mix any of the videos. But hopefully I can get ahold of MY legos so that I can work on a video of my own (yeah right).

That’s all for now.

Note to Author

For Youtube embeds, turn off “Enable Float Alignment” under Customize > Settings > Formatting

All playlists should be embedded with “width=350,” and “height=300” on both the object AND embed tag

Single video embeds are defaulted to 400×300 for now, although I think that the above “350×300” will work for those too.

These are approximate sizes, as you will have a little bit of margin on the sides, but not enough to worry about. The thing I’m not liking is Youtube’s default sizing, which somehow chops off the sides of the player and in some cases shifts the player over so much that half of it has disappeared. So far this is working. I’ll test this for a couple of months and see how it turns out.

Email Post

If this works, I will be really happy.  Because I don’t have to login to post a new entry.  This is an email post (if you couldn’t already tell from the title).  Great day and stuff.  I’m finally catching up on work and I’m starting to get ahead of the work, which gives me time to prepare for more work to make it more efficient when it really does come up.

Efficiency is a big thing with me right now.  I’ve found that if you are on the computer and are doing something over and over, you should be able to write a program or some-such to do/store all this repetitive work for you.

That’s all.
