Over the past week I’ve taken to finding anything I have access to the FTP server of that uses CSS and then fucking with it to the best of my ability.
The objective is to forcefully familiarize myself with CSS syntaxes by fucking around with the language until it sticks. All in all it’s going fairly well, but I have a long way to go before I’ll be able to create something I’m happy with from scratch using just/mostly CSS.
I’ve also learned that it’s more effective to look up tags for things I don’t know how to do than simply try making them up and hoping for the best. Who’d have thought.
Yeah fuck you smart ass.
The forum work isn’t finished yet, the Killboard I’m pretty happy with for now. I’d probably have finished the forum stuff today had I not decided to instead cannabalize this blog. No more Eureka sketch in the background 🙁
Those of you who, like me, have become Twitterfags, can find me on there under the name “YukiAnemone”, and find out about all the nothing that I do on a daily basis. If you find yourself following me and believe my twits to be interesting or at all insightful, go outside please, as it means you’ve become a serious fucking hermit if you find my life interesting.
SPEAKING OF INTERESTING.
Yes, that was worthy of caps lock, because I’m about to talk about Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
This is a series I picked up out of pure curiosity because I have a hard on for fleets of spaceships blowing each other up. Despite the age of the series (Aired 1988 – 1997) and an episode total of 110 it seriously delivers.
It’s the first series I’ve watched for a while that grabs my interest and makes me want to know what the fuck is going to happen next. At the time of writing I’ve blitzed my way through 72 episodes and the plot hasn’t really slowed down at all – there is no filler to speak of, presumably due to the wide cast of characters and their respective dilemmas.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes, despite having a rather silly name is an absolutely brilliant series that details the rise to power of two military geniuses on opposite sides of a war. Two men that are almost polar opposites in their beliefs and ideologies that develop a deep respect for each other as opponents. Fortresses are destroyed and conquered, entire multi-thousand ship fleets are obliterated, civil wars break out and planets rebel against their rulers.
Superweapons, political intrigue, religious cults and profiteering are not irregular themes.
