Theming using an external CSS stylesheet.

This thread is styled externally using CSS (Cascading Style Sheet). Basically, what you see here is hopefully close to what I see throughout GW.

For anyone who happens to be running Firefox and prefers the look of this thread to the basic GW style, you can, if you wish...

(1) Add the Firefox extension Stylish.

(2) Install this userstyle.

What "Stylish" does is allow the user to apply their own(or a pre-written) set of styling rules to a web page, giving you more control over what you see, and especially how you see it.

After you install Stylish, you can easily find where it says "Find styles for this site...". If you do that while on GW, you'll find the ones I wrote.

I wrote this for my own simple tastes, to kill time, and to learn new things. I can't guarantee it will suit you, if it does not, it's every bit as quick and easy to remove as it is to add.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Like a Hurricane (Live Rust - 1978)

Once I thought I saw you
in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light
from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam
I know that's who you are,
I saw your brown eyes
turning once to fire.


You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.
I am just a dreamer,
but you are just a dream,
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.
I am just a dreamer,
and you are just a dream.
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

<a target="_blank" href="URLtoGoTo">Word(s)ToDisplay</a>

target="_blank" is optional but in my opinion, nice(as in more polite) to include.

hoveruploader thingy again

I've had a local "Home page" for a long time but it's usually just a static list of bookmarks.

This is my first attempt at making it a little easier to edit. A little more dynamic. The implementation could be done a lot better so I won't post the script(s) but for now, it serves my simple needs.

Testing?



Capture is Linux Lite on the computer I just put together. I like simplicity and I suppose it shows. Low budget system, not impressive but compared to my netbook and other ancients, it's snappy fast.

Mostly uploaded the image to make sure my server, which I transfered from my very old Compaq to my "soon to be but not quite yet" old Acer, has the necessary extensions/programs/permissions to resize images, etc.

My Compaq wasn't doing well for reasons I don't quite understand. Maybe I'll put Linux Lite on it, or CentOS, or... just rob it of SATA cables, HD's etc. and retire it. Already got the burner. :)
