You know how I complained that LJ redid a lot of their code and messed up my style sheet? Turns out one of the changes is that even unpaid members can have a tag cloud now, instead of a plain old list. I love tag clouds. So I went back and tagged all my LJ entries (and corrected a bunch of spelling, while I was at it). It was kind of fun to go back over all those posts - incidents I had forgotten about. The tag cloud is much more indicative of me now.

I have to admit, it was kind of disheartening to see all the posts with no comments. Especially the big ones (no one commented when I got engaged! I guess they all called on the phone).

css woes

Hey, anyone else on LJ use the custom CSS option? Anyone else notice that they renamed almost every class and ID on the freakin' page a few days ago? I couldn't figure out why my style sheet was suddenly not working at all, until I opened up the source and really looked at it. So I spent a pretty large part of today figuring out how to make it look like it used to (actually, a little better, hopefully). And it wasn't as easy as renaming all the classes and IDs in the sheet - they reorganized some stuff, so it wasn't nested under the same things and ended up in a totally different part of the page.

Although, I'm actually pretty happy - now I evidently get to have an actual tag cloud instead of a simple list. Maybe I'll actually start tagging. Retro-tagging should keep me busy at work for a few days (it's really slow right now). And, all that tweaking definitely taught me a bit more CSS. I know a lot more about relative and absolute positioning, which I have avoided until now, preferring to let things flow.

Still, I find it amazing that I haven't seen more people remarking on the changes. I guess almost no one does their own CSS instead of just picking a theme. I wanted mine to match my web site, and it mostly does (apart from the sidebar having to have a solid background instead of sharing the gradient - saaaaayyyy, I should test out that possibility with the new changes).

ETA: Hah, what do you know, I can make the sidebar with the gradient! Actually, I think I could have before and just didn't realize it.

I was doing really well at posting regularly for a while, and then there was a crackdown on surfing at work, and I felt it would not be a good idea to go to LJ. And at home, it's such trouble to dig out the keyboard to the tablet, and the handwriting recognition editing gets old quickly, so....

Anyway. The latest news is that there was an opening at work in the department I've wanted to work in for several years (Branch Libraries' Information Systems - internal QA, kinda), so I jumped right on it. I'm still waiting to hear, since the application period only officially ended on the 30th. I got my first interview about a week after applying, and my second a week or so after that, so it's very promising. And I heard that only three people got a second interview. Cross your fingers for me.

In other news, my poor car got its hood crumpled, again. This one was not my fault. In fact, I wasn't even there - it was parked, and the person left the scene without leaving info. Lucky for me, there were several witnesses, and one took down the plate number. Can I say how much I love this neighborhood? The most annoying part was it evidently happened not five minutes after I parked it. Guess I should have been late to work that day, huh? All fixed now, and I didn't even have to pay the deductible. I love my insurance company. Just hoping to get reimbursed for the rental now.

I think that hits the high points of September. I'll post again if I can think of anything else noteworthy.

I looked over my last few entries. Must stop starting entries with OK, So, or Well.

My journal says I'm 61% feminine.
What does your LJ writing style say about your gender?
