For gijane7702

Tags: , , ,
LJ hates her and won't let her post the Christmas Song meme in her journal so I'm posting one for her.

Hark the herald angels sing,
'Glory to the new-born Gijane7702'.

Hark The Herald Angels Sing
from the Christmas Song Generator.

Get your own song :
Feeling: tired
Exploring: HW spread out across living room, dining room and kitchen
Listening: Christmas Carols

Rachael! You're not supposed to be here! =P *is like an annoying nagging mother*

I'm not really here. I'm just a figment of your imagination. I'm busily working away on my historiography paper.

I missed my 1,000 comment party! I just checked that comment stat program and I'm at 1,019 total comments on my journal. Oh well. Not like I had time anyway.

And before you start lecturing again... I'm almost done with the next to last section of my paper and I'm on single-spaced page 7 for a double-spaced 20 page paper so I'm doing OK :)

Except I haven't written an intro and I'm not sure I can do the last section in under 3 or 4 single spaced pages and certainly not in under 3 hours or so. Oh well. Sleep is over rated anyway.

Sleep is definitly over rated...It's half three here, I'm wide awake (yesterday I was waking up at this time) and still working on my fic.

Of course your paper is much more important than fic, so mucho good luck with it. :) And the other one!

3:00 am is usually my limit for any type of coherent intellectual activity. At that point, it becomes better for me to just go to bed, set the alarm for four or five hours later, and get up to start anew. Fortunately for me it is only 10:30 here so I have at least four hours until I'll have to call it quits for the night.

I'm really starting to worry I'm going to go over my page count, though. I guess over is always better than under. And I haven't started fiddling with margins and the like yet.

Unrelated note: would you happen to know how (or know where I could find out how) to change the color of the blinking caret in the reply text entry box would you? The blue/grey it is now just isn't showing up against my blue background and it is driving me buts? I know exactly where the code needs to go but I can't figure the string for the caret itself.

Back when I did student-y type things, 2am was my threshold. One day I'll get back to it. Half a degree does no one any good. ;)

I always thought over word count was better than under, until they started drawing a line under the word count and discounting your conclusion. I was lucky enough to have profs kind enought to overlook the formality but it doesn't stop the concern at each submission.

I'm fairly sure that a colour change what you're talking about needs to be in the CSS, I'll have a look tomorrow. If you send me to code a pointer where you think you need to change it, I'll get Dad to take a look at it. I'd love to give him something to do. ;)

As far as I can tell (thanks to this which is where I go for all the FlexiSquare CSS info), everything for the actual box where you type text is controlled through textarea. So I could make it a red background with black font with:

textarea {
color: #000000;
background-color: #800000;

but I don't know what to put in there to change the color of the caret. I tried searching and one thing said textfield-caret-color would work. I tried that and every variation on that that seemed logical and I got nothing. I've also seen a few things saying you can't control it at all and I refuse to believe that.

Well foo!

You'd have better luck thinking of how to do the last section if you weren't here you know. =P Now I'm just lecturing because it amuses me, just ignore me.

Good luck finishing it!

You're all good. You're making me feel mildly guilty for playing and taking longer breaks than I should which is definitely a good thing for me :)

Hee. Glad I could help, even if it is by being naggy. :P
