This week is a bust as blogging goes, since tomorrow I’m working on a Habitat for Humanity house with some coworkers. I’ve obviously changed the stylesheets around a bit and hopefully they are a bit more readable. Thanks to A List Apart for giving me the necessaries. I still can’t figure out why there isn’t more space between the paragraph breaks. I know it is a CSS issue, but it is beyond my meager skills when I think about how to apply an attribute outside of a paragraph tag. Still, the output is inside another tag. If the answer lies there I don’t know what it looks like. So instead I will code the breaks manually for the time being.
Do you think all those buttons over on the side are tacky? I’m starting to. I think I just stuck ’em on there because other sites use them. I believe the prevailing rules is to not use an image unless you have to. Another bell and whistle that I am ready to add is a CSS coded drop shadow. I’m having no problems with the code here, but rather, problems making a drop shadow in an empty selection. Once I figure that out I must then figure out just how damn big the shadow needs to be to fit around my main content window. the size recommended by A List Apart is far too small. And, since I am dopey, I don’t really know what they mean when they say:
applying the effect to an empty selection
I’ve been on another music downloading spree lately. But I’m at the point where I need some help. I need dance tunes and really good ones. Yet it has been so long since I have listened to good dance music I can’t remember the names of any of the songs. I don’t mean any of the innumerable techno songs, I need songs from when I/you was/were in junior high and high school and even college. Gangsta rap anthems, junk like that. So, if you please, leave a comment and list some songs you feel that I should absolutely have if I was going to throw a dance party.
I’m not. So don’t get excited.
I’m also somewhat unconfident of the subtitle for the site on my green style. ‘.44 Caliber Soul Revolt’ was what I settled on, I thought ‘Revolution as Propaganda’ was too pretentious and ‘Guerrilla Audacity’ was too stupid. It needs to fit with the theme of the style. I really want something that will both make fun of the faux-army clothes of American Eagle/Abercrappie collective and still be apt for my own idiom. If you have any ideas please tell me.
