Worst… Parking… Ever…

Worst… Parking… Ever…

On Thursday night I attended Beverly’s first ever pasta get-together. About seven people showed up and we ate delicious Italian food that Beverly and her coworker planned and prepared that day. Towards the end of the night her roommate mentioned he would be going to see Wall-E Friday night. We made plans Friday morning to join them. However, I waited too long to buy our tickets and the showing that they were going to was sold out. I hastily bought…

I giggled like a little boy when I read this. Finally someone else in the known universe (other than myself and Byron) thought of southpark’s Dr. Adams when they saw/wrote/said/heard the word Planetarium (“Plane—-arium”). Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one that experiences the world through obscure tv/music/film references. Not today, friends…. not today. Oh – and the product actually looks kind of cool too.

The perennial cry of the Mac user: “haha, but I have no viruses” can no longer be heard. Now that the Mac has become as ubiquitous as the Big Mac, those dastardly virus developers have set their sights on a new horizon. In fact, I’d wager we’ll see the birth of a new virus problem targeting Macs more than PCs as PC security gets tighter and Mac users still think they are invincible. It is like showing an auto thief…

So I asked Byron to take a look at my code. He did and said that I was missing the lightbox tags on every photo but the 1st one. At first I thought this meant that dreamweaver hadn’t been uploading the new webpage (a problem I’d had when trying to use dreamweaver to FTP files to a Covad server in the past). Then I realized … I had been uploading the changed Art page to a wrong directory. I think…

I changed the lightbox references on the art page from image maps to regular tags on the actual images… yet the images still don’t load in any browser but IE. Oh – except for the first one – the San Diego picture – that ALWAYS works in any browser no matter what. I’ve looked at the code over and over… can’t figure out why the other images won’t load in other browsers. After two hours of trying to figure this…

I uploaded all the new files for Longimage.com today for testing. I discovered quite a few things I need to fix (like an errant image that likes to disappear from where it should be and reappear up at the top). However, when I open up the pages in dreamweaver (MX) and click anywhere in the GUI or HTML views a “fatal exception occurs” and the program shuts down. I already knew that dreamweaver MX doesn’t work well in Vista –…

Monday after work a friend and I headed back to Stoney Point. This time we walked all the way around to the Northern side of the base of the mountain. Back there we came across a railroad track. After walking along the tracks for a few minutes we came to a tunnel. My friend said “we’re going to walk through the tunnel.” I laughed and told myself he had to be joking. Then I looked up and saw that the…
