Sea Sick

If you’ve staring at my site all day refreshing to see what exciting content I am going to be up next, do yourself a favor… get a RSS feed reader. It’ll save you TONS of time.

But if you are still living in 2004, then you’ve been hitting F5 (or if you are in-the-know) Shift-F5, then you’ve seen a possessed blog with white space showing up, disappearing, moving, disappearing… something like The Excorsist.

Actually, I wanted a 3 column theme but I love the color scheme and so I decided to go ahead and just change my theme to a wider, faster, sexier theme. Well, once I figure out what was going on…

The code was written like a TV season finale… to find resolution of the code in the current PHP file, you had to go to the next PHP file to get it. It’s like a puzzle. Instead of a box of smooth squares that where it’s own piece by itself, these were true puzzle pieces… So, in something that I wish I knew Yesterday! (adam sandler)… I figured out one out.

Thanks to Sam I Am (short name version) for sending me to a tutorial about expanding the column function of a column impaired Word Press theme, I was able to mash together something that didn’t look pretty but works.

I now have to work on the CSS (read: make it look pretty) and as much as I want to love GIMP… it’s so annoying because it’s not potatoshop (borrowed slang). I don’t think that I will be able to work on the image files until later tonight. So, if the screen looks a little messed up, it’s okay, you can have another Tequila Shot, or shot of espresso… you aren’t imaging things (I don’t think)

  1. You’re smart, the tweaks will work out quickly no doubt. I still love this theme though…the orange rocks and I love seeing space dude everyday!

    The lemongrass/green tea fro yo taste like , well, not like it should. Needs alot of tweaking.

    Go easy on the Gimp! Some of us have never used PhotoShop, so the Gimp is just fine.

    When I come back from my trip in 2 days I will be excited to see what kind of work you have done here.

  3. You are a brave, brave man — I wish you luck!

    (As long as you’re re-organizing everything, by the way, you might also want to fix the typo in one of your sidebar headers — it’s Flickr, not Flikr. Oops!)

    I like the 3 columns. Wish I could do that to mine but I’m still stuck using the old Blogger template and don’t have the time to figure it out. But I don’t have as much stuff as you do, that’s for sure!

    My blog is under construction too…it’s so frustrating. It looks like you’re actually making progress though…I am not. I might have to try that feeding thing one of these days…
