i'm ready for my close up mr demille

HTML? I ain't skeeered!

I spent the evening working on the website and the journal and I think I'm about 90% pleased with the outcome.  I really, really have been wanting to switch to the "component" style journal for some time so I finally got around to using that, but I don't like that it scrolls off the right edge of the frame when it loads at my website.  I don't know of a way to fix it, either.  I know why it does it, though. Cos of the size of the pictures I post. Maybe I'll start scaling them down. Other than that, though, I'm pleased with the colors and general appearance.  While I was at it, I went ahead and renewed my paid account.  Yay more icons! 

One thing nifty about the "component" style is that you can change the "current" things to something else... and since I never use the moods, I changed it to Current Location.  This entry is the first to test it....

i'm ready for my close up mr demille

it's the shoe tree's fault

Location: Lexington, KY

When giving consideration to why that old Photobucket account's bandwidth was hosed, I forgot to take into consideration the fact that it was in that account that I had posted the Nevada Shoe Tree pictures.  It was those pictures that I linked to the found_objects community entry I made.  That entry has been reprinted in at least two other "surf blogs" that I know of Cynical-C and Burp.Opweb...  who knows how many places those pictures ended up travelling.  My dilemma is, do I wait out the four days for Photobucket to gimme some more bandwidth (a lifetime in the blog world) or re-link to the photos at my webspace so more people can continue to enjoy the entire entry for the next few days.  I'm leaning toward re-linking, but I don't wanna hose my webspace bandwidth either.

The changing of "Current Mood" to "Current Location" only works on MY journal page... on people's friend's lists... it still says "Mood", even friends using the Component Style like I am.  That's kinda dumb.

They won't let Mike off the truck yet, not until he gets about another 25 hours.  That sucks, for him.  For me, that means I don't have to leave for Colorado until Sunday morning instead of Saturday.  I just finished eating some Sir Pizza here on Richmond Rd. and now I'm heading over to visit with my pal Robin for the evening, then out to the 'rents later where I'll spend tomorrow.  At the moment, I don't have anything solid planned for Satruday... still kinda waiting to hear from fujerica about some possible socializing.  On the socilizing note, for the KC posse, I will be in KC Sunday evening around 7-8ish, if either justamy or lacyunderall wants to hang out... or better yet, boaf ofs ya!
