So I'm doing a website for Bewhiskered and learning CSS along the way out of necessity. I'm using a template, but modifying it heavily. I've hit a snag that I just can't figure out for the life of me.

Anyone good with CSS willing to take a look and help me out? I just want to make one portion of the page less tall, but I've tried everything I can think of and I'm not getting it.

I used and loved Echofon, but since I upgraded to Firefox 4 it no longer works. I want something I can just click a button and read my twitter feed. Anyone know of an app similar to Echofon?

Amazing

Things I haven't been able to do in about 2 years:

Sit downstairs and work online with my laptop.
Put the laptop to sleep and actually have it wake up again without a hard boot.

The only bad thing I've been able to figure out about this gift so far is that I'll probably be up all night playing with it, and I have to drive to B'ham tomorrow so that's not really an option.

And for the computer nerds, here's what I got as described by Newegg: HP Compaq 6530b(FN026UT#ABA) NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8600(2.40GHz) 14.1" Wide XGA 2GB Memory DDR2 800 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi Intel GMA 4500MHD

OMGOMGOMG

Jason just came home with my birthday present. A new laptop!!! Holy hell this thing is nice. I'm getting it all set up now. Whee! It's way early but he said he couldn't let it sit in his office for the next 2 weeks. LOL <3

How do I make a hard pixelated edge into a hard smooth edge? I'm working with a silhouette I made by isolating what I wanted from a larger image. The edge is choppy, and I'd like it to be smoother. There's gotta be a better way than using a 1 pixel pencil to try and smooth it out.

Help?

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I LOVE IT. OMG, seriously, this OS rocks. It's smokin' fast and it just works. <3

More questions from the question meme, this time from [livejournal.com profile] heinous_bitca

1) Is there anything you miss by not working outside of your home?

Not one single thing. I thought about it too, but nope. I just wasn't built to work outside the home.

2) (stealing this from the one I asked Marz) Were you always a crafty person? Say even in high school, did you have the urge to make/craft/work on something, or is this a newly-acquired habit?

I've always been this way. I used to draw more, and actually considered a fine art degree at one point but decided I really wanted to be a Marine Biologist. When that didn't pan out (turns out I'm not so good with the chemistry) I fell back on art, in a way and got an English degree. My family are all very artistic in one way or another though. My Mom is a painter/illustrator, my brother is a musician and I'm the writer. Writing is actually my love but I don't have the time or head space for it right now. So I sew and take pictures. :)

3) We both have equestrian backgrounds. Wish you still actively rode? Will you teach Jake to ride?

Every single day I wish I was riding. *sigh* I live now in an area that has a lot of barns, and the board is very reasonable at some but even then I don't have the money to support Zane up here. I haven't ridden since I got pregnant for one reason or another but I miss it greatly. I keep my ears open for an instructor I can take lessons with, but haven't found one who teaches the style I prefer and whom I can afford. Jake has already been on the back of a horse. ;) If he wants to learn, I will certainly teach him. I would love it if at least one of my kids shared that passion with me, but I won't push it.

4) Do you think you'll be back in WoW for Cataclysm? What do you miss most about playing?

Yes, I'll be back. I can't resist the lure of playing Worgen. One of the things that made me hesitant about putting Ubuntu on my laptop was whether I would be able to play WoW. We researched it and yes, it runs very well. :D And I just got an email from Blizzard giving me 10 free days of WotLK. I'm debating whether to use it or just wait for Cataclysm. I miss you guys the most. Remembering the social interaction during the halcyon days of DotA still makes me smile. It'll never be the same of course, since that core group is scattered over several servers now, but it's still fun. The map of Azeroth (pre burning crusade) is framed on the wall in front of my computer. :)

5) (also stealing this from something I asked others!) I'm coming to visit you! What will your Southern Hospitality show me?

Oh my. Lots. I will ply you with sweet tea and Cracker Barrel biscuits with sawmill gravy. You will be amazed at how Southerners fry everything (even peanuts). It's mostly about the food down here. ;) I can show you towns that revolve around the summer strawberry festival or the fall pig roast.

so it's either my actual mouse or my USB hub. I switched out for my trackball and appear to be working fine, but it's also plugged directly into my laptop rather than the USB hub. I suspect the hub has something to do with it, because my keyboard stopped working and I had to route it directly into the laptop as well.

more experimentation is needed, but at least I can single click effectively now.

and so this isn't boring as hell, pictures of the critters.
