Wasted Space Now Reclaimed

So I’m looking at the page there..probably the one you’re looking at right now, and I noticed that there was a big blank space to the left of everything. “Well,” I thought, “How can I get the text to stretch that far?” Then I remembered the Edit HTML link in the Layout tab.

Went into the Outer Wrapper of the CSS section and changed the width attribute in the #outer-wrapper from 660px to 860px. Then I changed the width in #main-wrapper from 410px to 610px. There. Now the text shifts over into that blank spot (due to the outer-wrapper) and stretches across to hit the sidebar (due to main-wrapper). I feel so smart now.

Wowee!! So I get comments from people I don’t know at all. Now THAT’S something. And I also had a request to turn on ‘Blogger Follow,’ which I think is crazy. I like simplicity. Little mandatory pictures all over the place make for clutter. But in light of popular demand, fine. I’ll do that.

On a similar note, I’m going to remove the Daily Dilbert, even though it’s cool. It takes way too long to load and it’s again a big blob of mess at the top of every page. So goodbye, even though it’s cool.

Two things I’m excited about:

  1. I donated $65 to this missions group to provide blankets for new Afghan mothers. Link here.
  2. I bought Phil Wickham’s new CD – Heaven & Earth. Now all I have to do is..OH! I need to download vCast to get my phone drivers working again. I like to listen to music off of my phone, and so far I’ve been missing the drivers for transferring music onto it. I’ll go do that after I finish this thing.

Another cool thing is: I’m at the new library in Fort Collins. What’s it called? I don’t remember. Let me go look it up. Council Tree Library. It’s the second floor of a new outdoor mall complex in southeast Fort Collins. Not very big on normal tables..they’re into this retro comfy-chair look, but I can manage.

Anyhow, that’s about all. Let me go get those drivers.

Malware

Ugh..so I just about killed my computer. I picked up malware sometime yesterday at the library and managed to run it at home. Well, it installed itself, force rebooted the computer and loaded under the virus scanner and disabled it.

Then it proceeded to lock me out of any other scanning software, my modem and a bunch of other things got super-slow. So I reinstalled windows..or tried to. My internal cd player is dead, so I had to use my external one, but my computer won’t boot off of that without help,so I ended up wiping and installing Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I can’t get it to recognise my modem, nor does Grub (the bootloader) recognise cd boots. So I asked Dad to bring home the floppy drive and I’ll hopefully force the Windows install disc to load that way. I hope.

Oh. And we’re having wings and pizza for supper. on a good note ;).

Dale Walter

So I’d like to take a moment and give my own memorial to Dale Walter who I considered a good friend. Of course, he considered EVERYONE a good friend, but everyone felt speial after talking with him for any length of time. Anyhow, he died in a car wreck last Wednesday and his memorial service yesterday was amazing. Maybe when I get a normal keyboard under my fingers I’ll rehash it all.

Simple Update (as if you haven’t gotten enough already)

So I had this job opportunity open up over the weekend for a janitor position at work. All I have to do is call this one lady at the church. I’m planning on doing that tomorrow morning maybe before school. Boy, I hope I can pick up something.

On another note: we’re heading over to Loveland this evening for a visit with some friends. The excuse is to watch football, but none of us is very into football (even if Dad professes to be a fan). But it’ll be good to visit with those guys anyway.

Yet another note, I tried looking over the jQuery API and couldn’t quite figure it out. In addition to that, I researched Google Chrome theme builders and figured out how to do it manually in addition tothe little programs that do it for you. And, of course, I got all the videos listed below uploaded.

update on Youtube Uploads

    So I am currently uploading all the animation videos that haven’t been uploaded to my channel. They include the following:
  • John Wayne Horse Mount
  • Horse and Rider

I have more, but they are bigger than average, so I won’t post them now. Well, maybe I will if I think hard enough. They’re not really THAT big; just 2MB each. I can do it. The last one (Horse and Rider) was 600K…

The other two that I can upload now are Walk in-Roll out, Slave Driver and Spaceman. I’m still not 100% sure on the Basketball Stars Original.

Yes, I will do it. Right now, even!
