Bleah still mucking around with the layouts. I wanted to get a CSS menu on top of the persistent bar, but it’s quite hard… I’ll just leave things ugly but kinda functioning for the moment. Also tried out the Gallery2 gallery software, integrated with WordPress. Here’s a sample album: Don’t understand why Gallery2 uses such… Continue reading test

Also, after I dug around a ton for neat skins, I figure I should have done this ten years ago – turning my first… Continue reading Yet another new blog

For about $8/month you can get 400G bandwidth, and that’s 10x what I’m getting right now. Also wondered about things like whether I wanna switch to… Continue reading Thinking too much…
For some reasons I was obsessed with making stockings with real fabrics lately. I think they look different than painted ones. Since I failed many times over the weekend, I was excited to find something that kind of works, and wrote a how-to on it even though I haven’t finished the kit Also I’d like… Continue reading Stockings
