This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!


July 2nd, 2011

Man at work (or maybe at procrastination) @ 05:46 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: busy

I decided to change the colors of my journal style to match the colors of "Matt1993" in my grapheme→color synesthesia (with the exception of backgrounds that are currently white - I'll change them to black, because I think that looks cooler), so if you see the colors change every time you load the page, it's my customization in progress and not a weird glitch with LiveJournal. ;)

EDIT: Mostly done now - I still have to make the colors absorb a little of each other like my perceived colors actually do, but at least the remaining changes shouldn't be too drastic. By the way, if any of the colors are too bright or something and it hurts your eyes, let me know.

EDOT: Wow, mixing those colors perfectly is gonna take even longer than I thought - it's been the whole day and I'm only ⅛ of the way done. :(

EDUT: Decided to just go back to the unblended colors that M, A, T, 1, 9, and 3 have on their own - it actually looked cooler that way, and it's one less creative vortex for me. (Though I still applied the rule where the colors of the graphemes are mixed with the colors of how many of the same grapheme there are in a row [in this case, meaning the M, A, 1, and 3 are mixed with white like 1 and the T's and 9's are mixed with cerulean like 2]. That way, it should still be easier on the eyes.)

You mean the repost buttons? Yeah, some of them are long enough to mess up my layout too, even though I have the widest screen resolution I know of. I should've had the common sense to make it into two or more shorter repost buttons, especially since I've recently found that multiple repost buttons work just fine, but as always, I just didn't.

*proceeds to change it*

EDIT: Is this okay?

The post before this one is throwing it off just a bit.
But it's ok, I just have to move it over till the left margin is gone, then read.

Fixed that one too. I actually have quite a few repost buttons that are wide enough to mess up the page in some screen resolutions, so I want to fix as many as I can.

Don't go to overboard on this project.
It's just your button were getting wider and wider.
Those with a much lower resolution will most likely be use to scrolling left to right. Not just the up and down I'm use to.
I have a blind friend so I do try to keep my page simpler, for a computer to read out loud.

Oh, it's not a problem - I don't mind editing older entries (especially since that's what I did to put many of my repost buttons on the entries in the first place).

And I wasn't going to go fix them all just this minute; rather, I decided that whenever I'm looking through my older entries for a different reason (to link to a particular one, for instance) and I see a fairly long repost button, I'll split the text into two or more shorter buttons. :)
