children of dune - leto 1

god, facepalm day already

I think maybe I'm not all that emotionally stable today, as I was verifiying the webpage I'm working on for work on Firefox, since it's not as forgiving as IE, and my first css table coding is so off and wrong it hurts me and I started to cry.

*sighs* This cannot be a good sign of things to come. I don't know what's bothering me more--that I somehow got it wrong, or that i have to go back through thirty pages and change each one.

Seriously. People are looking at me.

It's the rain. It's gotta be.

And I still don't know why the first table and the header aren't working!

and all of the world shall bow and say yeah, css is of the devil

I have this irresistible urge to post snippets of never-to-be-finished fic. Then of course I look at my wip tag and twitch mightily. Very, very mightily.

I have more RAM. Yay!

When Bad CSS Happens to Hysterical People

My stylesheet inexplicably stopped obeying a class command thing. I get there is a hierarchy, yes, but note.

#content-div {border:1px}

apparently forever disallows

.mhead {border:1px solid #000000}

if both are div. However, if mhead is put to p, it *works*.

...why? WHY? AND WHAT THE HELL IS CONTENT-DIV AND WHY WHY WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE THERE IN THE CODE WHEN IT DOES NOT APPEAR IN THE DOC?

It's like magic or something.

However, new favorite place:

The best part is after you read it, you click the little example thing and it shows you the code and you *alter it and see the result on the screen beside it*. It's like a miracle.

You can see my rage is still unabated.

When You Realize You Are Insane

Here's the funny part of my earlier nervous breakdown. It *works in IE*. And at work? WE CANNOT USE ANY OTHER BROWSER. So the only person that would ever, ever know is me. Ever. Ever. It was perfect in IE. To get it to work in firefox, I had to go back and re-work how to place an image, exact pixel a few things, and that's when the id/class debate in div appeared. I--do not even know how to deal with it other than to cry and recode all thirty something pages.

Life After Eternal Darkness

My boss got me a card that sings the Star Wars theme and has a Yoda quote on the front that says he appreciates me. It should not make me tear up and say I never need a raise. But it totally did.

God, he knows me.

Intersting

I called my doctor for permission to increase my number of doses for a few days temporarily. I do need it; I was not exactly surprised to find out that it's a lot easier to work on websites when I'm using it. I have a better retention, hence the fact I could write the above from memory. Actually, I can do most of it from memory now, which honestly I wasn't able to before. And I retain it between days, which is--really cool.

So I do know now it's not placebo--there is a definite difference in my ability to not only stay on a task and finish it, but also to see mistakes. And oddly, to not make them.

Now if only LJ will let me *post*.
