I'm off today....I've still got lots of work to do around the yard but I'm taking some time off to do some blogthings I needed to do before now.

Blogging will be limited after Monday as I'm going on active duty for 3 weeks and the Coast Guard is the strictest service regards bloggers.

Thus I need to get the various blogthings I haven't figured out out. I'm really not at all computer savvy and the idiot-pruuf system at blogger rather concealed this fact....hell....I'm unsure of what a ccs is

anyhoo I'm poking about testing stuff below the fold.



My goals for today...

I'm trying to get my images to work from the magic picture box instead of that of Photobucket...

I'm trying to get the categories to work....

I'm trying to shrink the sidebars slightly....

I'm going to try to get the forum up and running..









Well that didn't work....trying again...smallregrettable

oooh...squished her....

the resizing option is not working....curses...I get "internal server error"

I'll try resizing via adobe photoshop and then loading a new file....


Now to see if .gifs work yet....


 OK...given that I can resize images without destroying their quality, I can ignore the sidebars for now. If I want to put up blogads the double margins will be useful.


Now to the forum....

Now to categories...just about all of my posts have categories...but none of these show....

 Yay! I got the categories up!

Boo! I've got to redo all of them....

 Onto the forum!

2 Probably you mean "CSS", which stands for "Cascading Style Sheet". It's an alternate approach for controlling formatting of a web page, where the higher level formatting information is pulled out into a separate file so that it can easily be changed globally.

3 You got an internal server error when you tried to resize an image?

Well, boo.  I'll do some testing and see if I can find that.

6 Aha!  If your filename doesn't end in jpg, gif, or png, it will explode without warning.

The image library can determine the type of the file without needing the extension, but my code doesn't support that yet.
