cranky

just so you don't think I only complain about the big stuff --


starting bout three weeks ago, I signed off several picture communities that I generally enjoy because of *people* (she said that with extreme generosity) who posted, without a cut

1) picspams with a dozen pictures and really stupid captions. I don't mind captions as a rule, I read them or I skip them - but these were in HUGE RED AND WHITE CAPITAL LETTERS the size of VJ day type (without benefit of spelling, may I add)

2) someone posting large caps. um, I like large - but I am talking about 1300 px wide. They might have gotten them down to only 1,000 wide if they had cropped the black boxes....

so, now I have to remember to go check for pictures, but at least it wont shove my navigation bar off my screen, right? Because the people on my own list understand the 500 px rule of thumb...

and during the next week, *two* people on my flist post quizilla/meme things with *huge* photos in one of the boxes....


ok

So, I redid my journal so the navigation bar is on the left. It still seems wrong to me, but I am getting used to it. And in the process, I was able to turn on the field that shows you the posters on the page, and the name of their entries. Cool, this is great when I am trying to show something I just read to Jim when he gets home.

The occasional very wide post requires a little screen re-arrangeing, but I am coping...

Till today... when I opened my browser, and found that my nav bar is *so wide* it has knocked the entries field off my screen. WTF?

Ah, I see - because someone (someone I like, a friend of a rl friend) has decided to name their post: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and the computer does not sense a place to make a line wrap.

ok. well, I am sure I find that annoying because I feel so tired and achy, and my eyes burn. I am predisposed to be cranky. Let it be and move on. After all, how often can that happen....

well, two hours later it happened again - I look down the list and find
" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SPIDER-MAN 2"


So, I am currently looking for a new layout for my journal. You may laugh at me now.
