Updating sites

So I’m in the process of updating Morrigan’s Madness and Morrgasm. I was thinking that Morrigan’s madness needed something new and improved for a skin (still working on that) and just a makeover all around.

Excitingly I added a new plugin that I think will be helpful. It’s an all in one Social media plugin. I find that I forget to Tweet when I post and having something do it for me is always fabulous. Plus it takes a load off my shoulders for it.The plugin is Jetpack and is downloadable through WordPress so if you have WordPress and want something that really integrates social media into your site, I’m enjoying it so far, I would suggest it. Only piece of advice I could give anyone about it, there is a built in like feature and any posts created before installing the plugin don’t seem to be able to use it, but if you update the post it will fix it (no changes need to be made) and you can use the mass edit and just choose “Update” and it will leave all posts as they were and fix the bug.

Let me add into that:If you are using the Jetpack plugin and are having an issue with the Like link constantly showing as “Loading” edit the post and then publish it and it will fix the issue.

I have decided, with the discovery of this plugin, that I will also be installing WordPress on my main site, Morrgasm.com so look for that in the next week.

Writing prompts

So I got this writing prompt thing and I’m going to try and stretch my writing limbs and use it and post the short stories in here for you all to read. So look forward to them soon.

Profile win!

Okay. So this isn’t going to be a super long post. I don’t have much to say really.

Today I spent most of my computer time looking for a bit of code that had NOTHING to do with the problem that I was having with changing my profiles. Eventually it turned out that I just needed to add a bit of code to force the use of CSS and it worked like magic. Throughout my entire day I felt very unaccomplished because I couldn’t find this. Luckily I found myself very focused and was able to complete all but the major cosmetic changes to the layout. At the moment I need to setup a new banner and a few other things to make it look like the back of the box.

Other then that? Check out my profile and tell me what you think:

I’m extremely tired and it is very late so I’m off to bed. Goodnight everyone! Hope you’re having a good day.

Nothin’ to report

Okay, I really did lie about the whole “I won’t use lines from movies thing” I mean I’ve now brought in the Incredibles. I fail. #morrfail

ALRIGHT! Now time to give all you people something to stare at, go ‘WTF!?’ and move on.

First thing for today…. I GOT SOMETHING DONE! Oh yeah, that’s right! I created a replacement article for IPB to allow admins to replace non-existent profile pictures with avatars, as long as they have an avatar. I’m sure I didn’t find everywhere on the main board but I got most of the essential places for it and I will eventually add the Blogs and Galleries as well. It was a sense of accomplishment of getting it working and then to be promoted on Coder’s Refuge made be all the more happy! Why? Probably because I had this strong sense of accomplishment for the day.

After I succeeded in this adventure I felt the need to not do anything for hours but I was unable to. I simply moved on to attempting more dangerous feats. Next…. I looked at the code I need to change *ie the CSS for the) blogs and then said “Screw that” and went to do other things. Like chat with people for a few hours and help my daughter work on her homework.

Then, toward the end of my fantastically adventurous day I began to re-vamp Ebi1 R0ot! to be more scalable. This means that I adnventured into the dangerous land of Illustrator. It was scary. I had to keep my wits about me so I wouldn’t throw my poor, defenseless, innocent computer across the room in frustration. Luckily I was successful and even more so when I created the new Ebi1 R0ot! Why do you ask? Mostly because I’d rather revamp him now instead of in a year. Another reason is that my brother helped me and lastly? Because he looks so much cuter now. You can see him at his site, Wootflakes

WOW! Today really is a nothing to report sort of day. I haven’t really much else to talk about. Successful coding, successful coloring (I even stayed in the lines) and successful ignoring things that I probably should have been doing.

Kid stuff?
Day 1 with the potty, still no interest but he does know that the thing makes a sound, he just doesn’t know how yet.
My daughter still has a cold and is coughing up a storm. I hope she feels better soon.

You know, speaking of kids, I wish computers were cheaper and I had a bit extra money to buy two cheap laptops for my kids to use. They always want to play games on my laptop but I swear to god they are like master genius of messing up every setting known to man, even ones that haven’t been made yet. It’s like a black hole of settings and they know how to change every single one of them without a bat of an eyelash. At least on their own computers I wouldn’t care what they did and I can disable access to evil things like the Internet and porn and things. Well probably, more specifically, pictures of me and my own websites. This site is certainly not intended for children. If it is, or it seems that way… You were completely mislead.

OKAY! Now I think that’s really it. Mostly because I’m tired and falling asleep at the keyboard again. Also my brain has melted from a day of awesome!

Goodnight everyone. Hope you’re having a good day. ^_^

Madness? This is Morrigan…..

Okay… Admittedly that was terrible. I should not use overused movie quotes as my titles but really? I was just in the mood. Maybe this means I need to watch 300? I don’t know. Perhaps. Well updates!

Yesterday was a fantastic day!! I got a call back for a job! Even better? It’s at University of Phoenix. I wasn’t prepared for the Phone Interview that came with the call but I guess I did swimmingly as they want a face to face interview on Wednesday! Now I need to plan my outfit. I was thinking my Green Jacket with something cute. I was hoping I might have the money to buy something worth my time to wear to an interview, because I don’t think anything I have is nice enough, IMHO, so I will be trying to put together something that pronounces my good attitude in life. If I get the job you bet I would be absolutely fantastic at it! I really need one and working at UoP would also mean that I could go back to school. You KNOW I would take advantage of that!

What else? Well I’m teaching my daughter a Noisettes song, Specifically Never forget you. It’s cute to see her sing it with the first lines specifically. “Whatcha drinkin’? Rum or Whiskey? What don’t cha have a… double with me?” So cute and she’s just starting to remember them without me. 🙂 When she gets it all down I’m recording it and youtubing! Look forward to that!

Otherwise, life is normal I think. Bills to pay… Headaches to get…. Eyes to gouge out. You know, the usual. <3 everyone have a good time!
