it's almost 2am.
this is friggin irritating.
so I decided to go ahead and change the template already, and will catch up with the retroactive labeling of my posts over the nest week or so.
ONE: i have no idea why items in the sidebar are not lining up in a straight line! I first noticed it when the profile and archives didn't match up with the hacked labels boxes.... thought it was a function of "blogger" vs "hack" settings... then I looked at "misc stuff to sort" and omg I just about died! As far as I know there aren't any padding/margin/alignment functions associated with those individual items, and yet they are all over the place?! Can anyone shed some light on this?
TWO: i'd decided I wasn't going to clutter the sidebar with a whole list of blogs: I'd only keep the referrer.org list because it's really kewl and it would reward the most recent referrers, so i spent a lot of time clicking on each and every one of my blogroll links to check if they were still active, then adding them to my Google Reader, assuming I could share who/what I read, kinda like how I've seen bloglines work. Only like 2 minutes ago did I come to the realization (please tell me I'm wrong, someone!) that it doesn't quite work that way: the main "share" page is meant for individual posts/articles I deem worthy to highlight! Unless I want to provide 5 different links to my 5 different public folders, which I wouldn't want to anyway because the presentation/layout sux, it looks like I'm gonna have to establish my reads on bloglines.
THREE: After seeing how my whole bunch of text seems to be just sitting there on the screen, I realise that the default font(s) [and sizes thereof!] for this template are really unappealing to me. Looks like arial will be a safe choice although if i want something fancier, for the titles/headers, the choices get rather tough: I might go with Lucida Handwriting...
will decide later.
I really can't do much more screen time.
I feel my eyes sizzling as my brain melts...
230am as I post this.
will be back online on Sunday.
