In the Limelight

It seems this blog thing is getting more and more into the limelight. This word, limelight, comes from the 19th century spotlights of directing a flame at a stick of lime (calcium-oxide, the main ingredient in concrete). The stick would glow and they could reflect the high-intensity light at the performer, orator, etc.

Only problem with my blogging, is it takes at least three edits before I finally get a post perfect. Such is the problems: grammar, missing information, improper html formatting, blah blah blah. Once I think I even performed eight edits before I finally said that was good enough. Oh well. It’s fun anyways!

And pictures aren’t always a necessity either, although I put some of the Wrath of Khan pictures up as a slideshow on the sidebar for your enjoyment. This is actually my Picasa miscellaneous folder, so anything I deem fit will go there and show up on the little slideshow.

Nothing else too extraordinary to report, except that it’s a potluck (share-a-dish for the politically correct people) at church, and I’m cooking up a double batch of chili. Probably should post this and go check to see how it’s going. Anyhow, just thought I’d drop by. I hope I don’t become a daily journalist like my sister. No. I won’t. Although this is becoming more and more interesting as it goes on…

Edits this post: had to come back and add these paragraph breaks, since it jammed everything together. I should have checked my post options before I published, but I’m just absent-minded like that y’know.

7-30-09 Nothing Interesting

So maybe I can’t message pictures through my picture messaging service, but maybe it will still work with the 1000 character limit. Air Fighter 4…Mom’s downloading it now onto her blackberry. I’m so excited. Getting worn out from all the racer and puzzle games. Need a bit of violent arcade every once in a while. Anyhow…oh! We just bought Star Trek the Original series (all three seasons NOT remastered) from ebay. We expect to dive in tonight and watch a few. I’m so excited. Okay the ram buffer on my phone is just about dead so let me see if this posts.

SMS Test?

Well all you thousands of fans out there. I’m limited to 160 chars here, so bear with me. and I’m up to 121 right here -> So yeah. Maybe I’ll think of something

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.
