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.
There! Happy now!? Gah!! It's up already. Google Fallow. And what-not. Actually, my Google Account page is getting more and more cluttered as I go along. And I'm not sure how to UN-subscribe to some of the things I have on there. Right now I have the following Google Services associated with my account:
Google Friend Connect (ugh)
Picasa Web Albums
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.
On yet ANOTHER note: PennMUSH - I've been looking at the idea of sql control within Penn. I've never gotten MySQL to work properly, so I've never gotten website packages such as Wiki or Mambo to install. But Penn allows for other database types such as postgresql and sqlite. I'm grabbing the packages for those. Oh..postgre is 40MB, but sqlite is like 500K. So guess which one I'm grabbing on a dialup connection.
Anyhow, I'm not sure HOW I'll use it, but I want to at least try to make a db work with Penn, just to see if I can.
What else? Sister and I've been home all week, as Dad and Mom went to Estes Park for their anniversary (29th). So it's been a time of Star Trek and boredom. Well, not so much boredom. There's plenty to do, but it's not all FUN. Anyway, they're coming home later this afternoon I think.
Good note about my computer re-image: I've finally installed all updates and software back to what it was, minus a few things I never used. Of course, I've always had problems with bootup and things, and I've always meant to isolate the problem child, but I never have. And with this re-image, I STILL didn't. I've a few large software packages I always install, such as Photoshop, DVDit, MS Office, Messenger, etc.. and always somewhere between then and the next re-image, either bootup takes forever or the computer freezes for the first five minutes after connecting to the Internet. So I'm not sure who the culprit is, even now. But we'll see if I can't catch it this time.
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 ;).
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.
- 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!
So I was listening to the friendly dj's on WayFM, of whom Brant Hanson is in Afganistan is on a short term missions trip. He's been talking for a couple weeks about 'donate blankets to new moms and I'll see that they make it when I go next month. Well, the time for buying blankets is over and now the organization is taking just plain money. Well, I'm all into it now, and I feel like doing something. What, I don't know yet, because I got Mom all into it too. We'll see.
In either case, here's the link they've been into all week long: http://www.helpcurenow.org/site/c.nvI1IeNYJyE/b.5546033/k.524/Mornings_with_Brant_teams_up_with_CURE.htm
Ha! So, update with the Youtube channel thing: I've accepted the new beta design thing that they offer. See it at http://www.youtube.com/depwl9992.
In addition to that, you may see a couple short (10 second) videos I uploaded a while ago but never announced. Be ready for a couple new ones soon (not Cowman unfortunately. That one's gone so stagnant.) I have an equally short one called Spaceman. And I was requested to put the original Basketball Stars video up which I had previously taken down for privacy issues. So you might just see that version as well.
Let's see....what else? If you want to see anything, just let me know. I'm all open for ideas.
