Site stuff

If the blog looks funny today, it's because I am attempting to set it up to be skinnable. So far I haven't had much luck. I am trying to do it with php, but I'm pretty new to that stuff. Also, I have come down with a bout of stomach thing, so I'm going to miss yet another class. I can't seem to shake the disease, man.

Also: I have nixed the idea of enabling comment smiley images, because I remembered I have disabled images in the comments with a script. (That was because some nolifeshitbucket left uglyporn jpegs in my comments one day.) So no smileys for now. I'm sure you can live with that.

Update: guhhh... forget it for now. I can't stand the slow load times on my computer. Waiting for the screen to sloooowly redraw, hearing my elderly hard drive go ek-ek-ek-ek-ek... it just isn't worth it. Also, I am not feeling particularly well. The new machine is coming in sometime next week; I'll get back to extensive site management then.

I admire real nerds. My father thinks I can fix computers and TV's because I have a physics degree. No such luck.

Oh, I can't fix anything either. Well. Once I rewired my tv remote after my sister opened it up and cut a wire. (This was many years ago.) And I can program a vcr. But I haven't been able to do much with a computer since Windows 3.11 fell off the market... man, I used to regedit the heck out of that OS. (Mem'ries... far away in the moooonli-i-ght...)

Hope you feel better soon. (This year has been a bad one for lingering cruds, one after the other.)

I felt awful last Friday and ended up sick all weekend and stayed home monday and tuesday. My boss went home sick this afternoon, and now the sales assistant is feeling sick.

Passing it around!

Hope you feel better soon, Andrea.

Hope you get to feeling better, Andrea.

The smilies will work even if you have images turned off in your comments, because it's not the user using the img tag, it's the software interpreting the code and rendering it as an image.

Oh -- okay; neat! I'll get to implementing them someday, after I feel better. (Tonight: chicken soup and toast. Yum.)

Feel better! And I'm with you on the chicken soup bur for a different reason...Damn allergies decided to mess with me and dredge up my chronic sinusits again...Joy.

Take care of yourself and get well soon. Hope this is not one of those things that keeps coming back again and again and...

Nice look to the blog, although I do regret the loss of the "Spleenville World Domination Headquarters" heading and the silhouette of the lady writing.
