Pimp My Blog II

After extensive rewriting...stealing elements from two templates...this blog seems to work in both Firefox and IE. Seems I'm getting better at this even though I have only a small idea of how all this works. I use the trial and error method. And some pretty good guessing. There are still some small bugs, nothing you can see. This will be the last major upgrade for some time...at least until I get bored again.

Can You Say Bull....

Here's an urban legend in the making...or Hogzilla II. Some one somewhere got bored...some kid or kids decided to have some fun. They took a picture of one of their buddies and did some "photoshop" work. And this is what they produced.


The funny thing is people believe this...even news people, more than one. This is a really bad photoshop image. This is "The Hogzilla" and he wasn't shot by some 11 year old kid with a .50 caliber handgun running around in the woods.

This is another example of me getting bored and exploring the blog world. Too many really bad blogs and some, few and far between, real gems. There are many. You just need to look.

By the way, there was a story, about a year ago, on this "Hogzilla" thing on the NGC or the History Chanel. This is one of the pictures of that hog. Even then they thought the picture was faked. There was a huge hog unearthed but a bit smaller than claimed.

Can't believe all you see...so whats new.

Pimp My Blog

Here's the new look for now. I heeded all the warnings this time and nothing serious went wrong. As you can see in the sidebar...thing to the right...I wrote a little something about this there.
This template has some display problems in IE. I really don't know why this displays wrong in Internet Explorer :) .... I really don't like or use IE. It's goofier looking than it was...too much "pretty" shit. Looks like an interface for a little kids game. Enough IE bashing.
I based this whole design on the TicTac template, one of Bloggers standard templates. If there's a fix for this blog template let me know. Otherwise use Firefox...like I do.
I did some minor look changes to the template. Black and green and a Bud crown logo...hope no one sees it....

Let me know what you think.

By the way I'm not the only one having a problem with IE displaying my blog wrong. Check out "Call Me Fishmeal" by Wil Shipley.


Update:

I'm reworking a new template that (for the moment) seems to work fine in IE. If all goes well I'll be updating my blog (same design, new template) in a day or so. It might just be bad code. I still don't really like IE but...

Stupid Me

I guess the phrase is "Live and learn". When they, Blogger, say "Warning..." listen.
No, not me, I just hit the "OK ( or whatever)" link. Boom, the change is made. Me, no worries, I saved my stuff...sort of. Just redid my blog.
Just trying to change the look...I'm back where I started.
All of my blog entries were saved...good thing.
Warnings are there for a reason...no shit! Listen...I will from now on.
