New skin

Been playing around and finally got a custom skin working for the main blog collection. That's the one that collects posts from ALL the blogs here and puts them in one neat little package. In all honesty, I'm not sure if anyone would be interested in that, but yeah. Took me forever, too, trying to figure out which tag is for what part and why the friggin' thing doesn't line up. >< But it's there, so I'm happy.
In other news.....not really anything to report. Been swamped at work, so when I get home, I just want to do things to unwind. So been reading and playing a lot of Oblivion. Weekends have been taken up with D&D a lot lately, as well as family stuff. So not really much time to do anything else. But things are slowly slowing down, so hopefully I'll get time to do other things soon. ^_^;

EEEEE!!!! *happy dance*

NEWCOMPUTERNEWCOMPUTERNEWCOMPUTER!

My boyfriend brought me my late Christmas gift tonight. An AMD X4 620 processor with 4gig of ram, an NVIDIA Geforce GTS 250, new DVD burner and 2Tb secondary drive all wrapped up in a nice new case. EEEEEE!!

I can now play Oblivion with the highest graphic settings! And Assassin's Creed! AND I can go out and get Dragon's Age next little extra money I have!!

Oh wait, I have to reinstall FFXI. And wait for it to update. And get all my files off Rosaleen Quad and move them over as well as redo my Firefox plugins and learn Windows 7. Eh, small price to pay for SHINEY NEW SYSTEM! SHIIIIINEEYYY!!

Some girls go gaga over jewlery or flowers. I'm giddy because of a new computer. I guess that just reinforces the geekness. HEEEEE! *happy dance*

so, wtf b2evo?

Ok, sick all weekend and yesterday, so I don't mess with any of it. I did check yesterday and even with clearing my cache and all, still not working. I come into work today, decide to try again, and it works without me doing anything. o.@ So, yeah. No idea why it's having trouble at home.

arugh function

Ok, while I can still pull the posts out of b2evo and display them here, I can't seem to get the blogs to work as a blog page with the skins. I have no idea why. >< Last time it did this, I had to delete b2evo and reupload to get it to work. I REALLY don't want to have to mess with that again! It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have plans for using the actual blog function for a couple of things. I have a couple sites that would work well as just a straight blog, with some plugins for a few extra things. So I really hope I can get this working. Blaurgh.

News status update

Ok, I think I finally have a solution in place that works. And what's more, I got it working on the gwg as well. w00t! So, yeah, we'll see how that goes. At least I know have good backups for everything, and if b2 doesn't work out, I know I can import all the posts into Thingamablog. Which is a nice program, but I wanted something web-based. But I'll keep it bookmarked in case I need it.
In other news.....snow. Yeah. We've got about 4-5 inches in DFW area, and it's still snowing. The roads aren't iced over YET, but I have a feeling they will be tonight. Possible three-day weekend! And I really want to build a snowman. ^_^;
