…….from previous

Oh..and for those of you who still think it’s boring, I don’t like to rush these things. I like to see if they look good and what I want to change before I go changing everything there is to change. So just be patient.

Design

Merry Christmas! Almost..

Per request for a channel design switch, I’ve done a bit of CSS editing with borders and background images and transparencies. Enjoy!!

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.

Online Picture Storage

Well I’ve been storing a few of my online pictures in MSN Groups. But that wasn’t very good. It wastes a whole group, and I don’t like MSN that much. So I’ve moved almost all of my web pictures to PicasaWeb. Since Blogger stores all uploaded folders there anyway, I figured I might as well try to consolidate. So, in short, I’ve created a new album called Webdev. It will contain pixel colors (I already have black and white there) and a few other pictures even you can use for web development.

To use them is a bit confusing. You need to go to My Webdev Album and click on the picture you want to view/link to. The pixel ones are a bit small, so you will have to have good eyesight to find them.

Next, on the right side, you will see a link called “Download photo.” Right-click this link and “Copy Shortcut.” Go to your source code and Ctrl-V into an <img> tag. Make sure you remove the “?imgdl=1” from the end of the pasted image source code. This will make sure the image shows up on your page rather than prompting the end user to download it. Hit refresh (F5) in your web browser and my image should show up on the web page. Cool, huh?
