this is only a test...
... of the emergency 'whether or not I can blog from work' broadcast system...

THIS IS ONLY A TEST. (aka: my boss is at lunch)

Since I'm here, let me share with you the latest things that have made me laugh. You can find them here and here.


Other things of note:

  • CSS kinda makes me wanna cry occasionally, but they are tears of joy. If only I could borrow Hrbek's brain from 8-5 M-F. WHAT SAY YOU, HRBEK??***
  • It is hard to unpack when you have no where to put things.
  • Sheila is going to help me with the above this weekend, (shhh, it's a surprise).
  • I thought I was over it, but NOPE, I still heart men over 40. Wait a minute, I heart men under 40 too... hmmmm...
  • Right now, my left tricep is twitching.
  • Friday, poker, my place... is it in?
  • I am never going to blog in complete sentences again, unordered lists are OBV the way to go.
***So, since you're here already... I'm currently trying to clean up some sloppy HTML in tables with CSS, but I kinda suck at CSS and know very little about it. I've actually managed to get thru this whole site and replace almost all the crap with smaller crap (holler!). But here's one I can't seem to figure out -
<_table width="188px" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
Is it even possible to create cellpadding and spacing in CSS? If so, tell me how O WISE ONE!

Tables suck btw.

    oops -- posted b4 i finished reading ....

    CSS handles everything in the tables EXCEPT ONE: cellspacing ... so if u do tables, still need one dec.

    Like this

    <_table cellspacing="0"><_tr>...

    All the rest can be done like so in CSS

    td {
    padding; 5px;

    Classes and IDs on both tr and td elements give u all kinds of hooks to put ur styles on, too.

    Clean version:

    <_table id="tblHOLLA" cellspacing="0"_>

    table {
    border: none; /* handle this in a global reset, tho */

    table#tblHOLLA {
    width: 188px;
    margin: 0 auto; /* centering it is a bit of a bitch if you have to support old browsers */
    td {
    padding: 0;
    background-color: #fff;

    Lurking to pick up CSS tips, sfobv.

    Oh, and unpacking is overrated. You learn what's important to you by what you do and don't unpack. I came across glassware from college in a box in the kitchen. Last year. So, like ~25 yrs in the box w/o noticing = not important.

    I assume the kids are out of their boxes. Yes?
