Whew!

Ok, the header pic is pretty much done. Enough that I’m happy with it, though I’m not sure why the frame around it went AWOL. I’ll figure that out tomorrow night; it took me all evening to get the picture and font set, and I haven’t even eaten supper. And work was rough today. So of course, for some inane reason, my brother walks in while I’m deep in Paint Shop Pro, and hands me this ten page rant from some woman over in Channelview who thinks her husband’s out to kill her! (He got it off AOL.) I have no idea whether it’s a hoax or not, but I have better things to do than read short novels created by the febrile imagination of someone who didn’t take their medicine.

Who knows? Maybe it’s for real, and the husband didn’t take his. Either way, it’s a job for the police and divorce courts, not Ubu Roi, Ace Detective. No way in hell am I driving over there to check it out, so why waste fifteen minutes of my life reading about it? Come to think about it, haven’t I spent longer than that sitting here typing this rant out? It just goes to show, idiotic crap will suck all your time away if you let it.

I’m going to go eat.

Edit: Well, ok, I’m not happy with it, but it will do for now.  The title is still too hard to read.  I’ve tried a few different colors and nothing’s really worked well yet.

    Try making the outline in white, maybe, and the fill of the text in black. Or light grey/black. That might set it off from the background some.

    If it were a picture, no problem. The title is text though. Automatically inserted due to the magic of PHP. I can meddle with the css for H1 but that’s about the extent of it. I suppose I could do a .gif file and figure out how to insert that instead. But if I’m going that far, I need to find some glasses and add them to the artwork in some way.

    Hm. Wonder if I can extract the dancing glasses from G-On Riders to an animated .gif? Or were the end titles all over that segment? I have never even made an animated .gif before….I think it can wait for now, but I need to get some practice with graphics programs…. I’ve got an idea for a recurring feature, yes I do.

    If you want I can make one for you. I do alot of graphic arts in my free time. just let me know what you want in it :-D

    At this point I’m just tossing ideas around. I’m not sure where I’d put an animated graphic so that it would be “cool” and not “damned annoying” instead. I’m not really going to worry about it until I finished transferring the posts and get the pictures re-linked.  But thanks for the offer; I will keep it in mind!
