all a-Twitter

I got a Twitter account. Yup. Found out about it through InsaneJournal. (Found IJ through GreatestJournal… GJ through Livejournal… LJ through message boards and friends… EZBoard through C… Don’t know why I’m recounting references all of a sudden…)

I got it mostly to stick on my blog so I won’t go without updating my blog in some fashion, but won’t deluge my blog with short, fairly pointless entries.

I’m disappointed that I can’t tweak it more than it is now though. (Well, if I took out the ul navigation from the sidebar I could. Or if I bloated my CSS with specific styling for each, which I hate.)

I don’t understand how Shari (sharii.com) got hers the way she did. How’d she get her updates inserted into p tags?? And how’d she insert those special characters?? And how’d she get the updates to show up regularly in code instead of using Javascript and a blank ul??

:( I don’t like my Twitter code.

losing my mind again

So fsnet has been back for a month now. Okay, a month and a day (too preoccupied to say this yesterday). And in that time, I have made a total of 6 posts. A year ago, a time when I didn’t update frequently (or so I thought) I made 15 posts in the same time period. I think I’ve lost my fondness for my blog. Heh, like that wasn’t obvious when I said I wouldn’t bring it back for a while … :b

Yeah, anyway, where was I going with this? Oh yeah. I still like fsnet, I wouldn’t get rid of it any time soon. But I’m just not in a journal-keeping mood. I mean, look at my lj a year ago, I was updating that thing almost daily. And now I’ve posted only a handful of times this past month. (Of course, I could make this point much more easily if I could LOOK at my journal archives … ¬.¬ *thinks evil thoughts of Livejournal’s servers*) I think the reason why I haven’t been updating is because I’m in a whiny mood, and I don’t want to annoy anyone. :b I don’t want to constantly complain about schoolwork or whatnot. (Hm, m-w.com has a definition for whatnot, it is a real word! XP) … (And the longer I stare at “m-w,” the more it looks like a face with someone holding their hands up in front of their face … like one hand has the fingers down, and the other hand has the fingers up … yeah, I think I’ve had too much internet … is five straight years too long?)

Nothing else happens in my life. What did I do this past week? I did math homework, I thought about my Color & Design project, then constructed it, I read a biography on Mary Leakey over the weekend, I typed up an econ outline which I did not print out and thusly could not turn in today … I ate, I bathed, I brushed, I slept, I dreamed, I breathed, I read blogs and journals (lately I’ve been reading only four blogs and three journals, not counting my friends list; very few for me), I made lj icons, I looked at Evanescence icons, I watched Whale Rider, I … listened to music … I drove … I stressed … and there’s my week. In a very tiny paragraph.

Ooh, that leads so nicely into my next point. I didn’t even plan it. XD

I don’t like GM so much anymore. I’m not saying I dislike it, I just don’t want to use it anymore. (Hm, is there so much of a difference there?) I don’t like the idea of writing something short that takes up space on my website. And yet that’s all I really have to post, lately. But I don’t want to clog up my friends’ friends pages with all that. So I’d like to make a blog that was not stored on my server, and also didn’t have any friends on it. But I don’t want to pay for layout-making privileges either. :b So I was thinking about getting a Mindsay account. But then I’d have to make fs.net point to that place, and then I’d have to link all the other pages back to this spot (like the groups page, links page, and other stuff). And I’m not sure that I can totally customize the layout.

Hmm … the only other place I can think of is GreatestJournal, but I already have one, and I don’t want to use it, ’cause it’s private, and I don’t want to pollute Christine’s friends page, but I also don’t want to sign in and out … @_@ Blah. I don’t know of any other good places.

Now I’ve lost my train of thought ’cause I was thinking of GJ. XP Well. Last thought that doesn’t really have to do with the rest of the entry. For some reason, even though they look perfectly fine on my computer, when I upload the cgi files of old entries I have, they get corrupted and change. Although, after downloading the first entry, correcting it, and uploading it again, it seems like all the other entries have changed back nicely as well. o_O I just found that out while looking for an example of how it changes. ^_^;;; Well, as much as I remember, the first entry had, on the first line, all that date title time etc info, then it had |yes|yes|closed|||no| even though the copy on my computer said |yes|yes|open, and I uploaded that two or three or more times, and the bad version on the server wouldn’t change. -.- Well, we’ll just see if what I did really fixed it, when I rebuild all the files … if not, I’m giving up, and just saving all my old entries as txt files and starting all over again without GM somewhere.

On a fairly unrelated note (it’s still about my blog), checking my url referrers earlier tonight, I discovered that someone found my blog because they were looking for an image of a “japanese girl” and found my picture that I uploaded a LONG time ago … *shudder* I don’t want to know why someone wanted a pic of a Japanese girl, and I really don’t want to know why Google still has it in their database. But at least it was a really really tiny pic of me, so if you saw it, then saw me, you couldn’t really tell it was me. :b

edit: Dang, didn’t work. -.- What to do, what to do … *is too lazy to save all 200+ cgi files as txt files*
edit2: YEAH! XD I now have a 00000001.shtml page! AND my archive index actually lists it! XDDDDD
edit3: I guess this means I have to edit each individual entry through Greymatter and mark it as open. >_> *too lazy*

LJ and GJ

I like this layout … I like it very much. ^^ But it’s annoying me that it’s too tall for 800×600 users. Or, I assume at least … for more than half, it’s taller. Oh well. Too lazy now to make a new layout.

Guess what I just found out. Livejournal lost my layout. Allll my styles … *twitchtwitch* Only my friends page isn’t affected ’cause I don’t have a custom style for that. (Yeah, I know, if I only wouldn’t try and change the style, nothing would happen and everything would still look the same. But I want to change my layout. And all the little different tags I changed … ;.; (well, I think I pasted a few of them into my GJ, so … all is not lost! … yet). What I’m wondering right now is if my style will be saved … because I changed my layout a little while ago … (go see :b if you can) and when I went back to change something, the stuff I put in wasn’t there. o.o Oh well. I like poking fun at LJ. >b

Actually, I was looking at the GJ news page, and man, they have lots of new stuff. Of course, they’re lots smaller and don’t have so much stuff on their servers (or so I assume). Like, you can’t right-click on userpic pages ’cause there’ve been problems with stolen userpics. I know, that’s hella annoying and not all that effective, but still, it’s thoughtful. Don’t you think? ^^;;
