EDIT - Okay, maybe not so shortly... *hrumph* I was getting quite frustrated with the narrow entry space on the old 3-column arrangement, and poked around for a while looking for something similar, but which I could tweak to be wider. This seems to be doing okay, but I copied all my old coding for 3C down first* (whoa, witness Wolfie actually doing something sensible for a change! :P)** in case of needing to abandon ship and change back. Will be delving into the dark arts of CSS to see if I can find an override to pop the wee pics back in for the "leave a comment" and so forth...***

Though playing about with the colour palette is fun. XD

Pic is one of [info]johanirae's.

EDIT #2 - Official 100th Journal Entry. And all it says is *flail* "I STILL CAN'T DO TECH!" *flail* Hah! XD


*Pfft, what do you mean, "custom layers and styles"? I didn't have the foggiest notion of those before, ooh, around 3am today.

**Well, that was sensible. Buggering up and deleting, oops the subsequent all-singing, all-dancing Custom Layer and Style so I not only lost every single tiny bit of editing I'd spent several hours setting, but apparently also put myself bang on some McCarthy-esque blacklist for using Greys in Flexible Squares [i.e. I seem to have lost bits of things that make the Greys theme happy actually work], so had to start from scratch again with Machine...that was not sensible. Tchah.

***Aha, done and dusted!

EDIT #4 - By Jove, we're almost there! :D

Item #25796 in the list of Benefits of British Multiculturalism: being able to find an open shop and buy those essential festive items of catfood, milk and cigarettes on Christmas Day. :D (And pizza for one's Christmas Dinner. Yay.)

Merry Christmas, everyone. :)

Also, big thank-you to redconverse  for the Card With Moustaches! XD

Update later. I've been quiet lately thanks to a dose of The Cold From Hell. :P

Dear bus company,

Four buses in a row complately failing to turn up = taking the piss in a major way.

Four buses in a row completely failing to turn up on a rainy, dark, cold evening = Wolfie going postal.

A commute of under 6 miles between work and home should not take me two hours to complete. Even on public transport. I could have walked it in less time.

Nicer entry to follow when I'm on the outside of about three more mugs of tea. :P

I know that subtitling programmes is a thankless job. That subtitlers are, on the whole, dedicated and conscientious people, providing a valuable service. And that we all make mistakes.


Slightly pic-heavy.Collapse )

Edward Woodward (he of the superb performances in Breaker Morant, The Wicker Man and a stack of other notable roles) has died.

Sigh. Very sad news.

79 is a good innings, but still too soon. Rest in peace, lad. You were brilliant.

My kettle just broke.


The little red light is coming on, and I've tried plugging it into another socket, but it's not doing anything else (such as, y'know, actually heating the water). No, it's just sitting there smugly. Stone-cold.

For any international LJ-ers who might be reading this and wondering why I see fit to be kicking off about it, let me assure you that if you're British, kettle-b0rkage is a serious situation. It means you CAN'T HAVE TEA.

:cue much wailing, gnashing of teeth, and similar:

:deep breath: Alrighty-then. Come on, Wolfie. Think this through. If British troops were capable, in the midst of the Normandy Landings, of stopping halfway-up Sword Beach to brew tea whilst under enemy fire*, then you have not the least grounds to claim you can't manage producing a cuppa in vastly more tranquil conditions.

*I am not making this up.

The little camping kettle is currently lost (most likely lurking under a large pile of muddy wool and bandoliers from the last time I used it), so mess-tin on the camping-stove it is, then...
