WTF is wrong with blogger these days. Seems to get worse by the hour :( Anyone who know if it's possible to set up Greymatter on Tripod and would be willing to help me do so? Would be nice to have it as an alternative.

Our youngest kitten Shadow is a real pottymouth. I was just cutting some smoked sausage for dinner and just because I didn't share with her, she let me have a big piece of her mind. I can't stop laughing at her when she's in that kind of mood, because she looks so serious when she's doing that.

Arggggggh Don't you just love those sites where either right-click have been disabled or they have disabled the filemenu in a frutile attemt to keep people from lifting stuff off the pages. It doesn't work, because all the pictures are already in my browsers cache in order to display them and the no right-click script are so dead easy to get around.

Wow I found DLT Graphics Studio in my referrers for SMG Design and I have to say I'm very honored to be put in the same group as Ann, Moyra, Mizz KItty, 7 Rings and the few others listed on that page. Those are the very same designers who I admire more than anything and whose sites I visit on a regular basis to seek inspiration, learn new tips and tricks and for plain old enjoyment when I need visual treats.

I wish I had had The Heart Knows Something Different : Teenage Voices from the Foster Care System : Youth Communication when I was studying Social Work or had the chance to write my story way back when.....

I think these kind of books are extremely important for a couple of reasons. Not only are they an extremely good way of educating Social Workers, legislators and everyone else who is contact with with kids in foster care or residential settings. It's also important for these kids to tell their stories, whether they're good or bad and let their voices be heard where they rarely have a chance to be heard.

There is something I don't understand regarding domains and how some people seems to be addicted like druggies looking for their next fix. What is the use of having a blue million domains which you might not use, but just want because the name is cool?

Yes I'm speaking out of envey here, because I'm constantly struggling to find a socalled free host which is reliable and doesn't screw around with the users and their content all the time. Don't tell me to go out and buy my own domain, because I'm not able to do so. Yes I know they're cheaper than snot, but you don't know my circumstances and why I can't purchase.

I can't wait until the day I can make my own little trips and discoveries and in general be more independent. Bob knows all this.

I'm subscribed to a news group for and about tutorials for Paint Shop Pro, where people also can post their results of working with different tutorials. However all people do is to pat eachother on the back for great work, even though it might be terrible looking. I have yet to see anyone giving any piece of constructive criticism such as "you should try a little soften here or there", "those colors doesn't work well together", "try using the smudge brush", "I see a couple of stray pixels", "you should try to cut down on the texturizing to give it a more natural look". I know what will happen if I started to give that kind of advice, I would be knocked up side down from left and right. It has happened before in regards to the copyright issue. People say they're just there to play, have fun and learn, but how can they learn if they don't get some feedback about how to improve their skills? I do not claim to be the best one at doing webgraphics, but I do hope that people would be honest enough to let me know if there is anthing that is totally out of whack. Maybe I should make my own "Top 10 Graphics Peeves" on my graphics site. I'm just afraid that it would be a lot longer than just 10 items.
Sara wrote on 9:09 PM - Link - Comments

I'm thinking of merging New Horizons into this page since Crunchblog seems to be the place where most things are happening besides the Graphics page and the Galleries. It would be one place less to maintain and doesn't take up much more than 4 or 5 MB of space which hardly would make a dent in the amount of space I have here at the CrunchBlog account. Hmm decisions, decisions.

Anyone know if the numbers here are true?

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.
Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

I can identify with what Brooke is saying, but as it also is said later on it really depends on how much you're giving out and willing to give out. Yes I do often feel like a lonely fish in the sea and wonder why I see and hear nothing from people, except a select few but that's because I haven't reached out myself. Granted I'm not good at reaching out and shaking hands with people. I much more prefer to sit back and look, but that doesn't work either. Yes there are all those people I would love to communicate with (Some of whom I'm linking to in the sidebar), but it kinda scares me a little bit too because I have such a deep respect for them and the work I see they're doing. I don't feel I have anything whatsoever to offer and that I'm operating on a much more simplistic level and never will be able to rise to the hights they have done. I think it's partly a selfesteem issue and I have had way to many downs recently to dare cultivating the community which could be there for me too, at least not right now...

It's people like that who insists on not adapting to their new country who is making it more diffecult for those of us who just want to live and work and become a normal part of the American society, because people become more reluctant to accept immigrants because some refuse to adapt to American society and culture but instead expects America to serve their every need on a whim.

It's going to be an interesting year "Health Insurence" wise this year. Bobs employer changed paperhandlers at the beginning of the year. His employer actually pays for the bills but have an insurence company to handle all the paper work. ANyway we were supposed to be able to keep the PCP's we've had the last couple of years, but upon reserching who was or wasn't working with the company that handles the paperwork now, we found out that none of our old doctors want to work with the new paper cruncher. I don't blame either one of those doctors because while researching "Aetna Health Insurance" we found out that they have a very nasty habbit of not paying the bills on time if at all. It was also quite interesting to see just how many class action lawsuits against Aetna there had been. It's going to be a very interesting year indeed.

This will mean quite a difference in living conditions for my mom and I'm not quite sure she can manage it for very long. I, on the other hand, am far from ready to let her go yet. I'm expecting the worst :(

I am not surprised at this new message from the Pyra people. But what is the goal and for how long are they going to ask for "donations"? After being around and reading various comments from Pyra folks as well as non Pyra folks I am not going to contribute until I'm sure I get something for the money.

Something just dawned on me. I could put those two pictures on an adult hosting site and then charge $9.95 or something like that a month for people to look at ass and tits, but somehow I don't think people looking for those kind of things would appreciate those two pictures at all.

This hosting plan is really all I need, but I also need the money for it which I don't and won't have for a while yet.

And so it happened yet again. Thought there would be no problems in hosting my galleries at Angelcities, but there is. Two pictures featuring poser figures in a bryce setting could be looked at as nude and as such I was asked to either censor them or remove them. Looks like I have to go househunting yet again.

It is not fair. We haven't had one single flurry of snow for about a week. Everything is just grey in grey and very blegh. Colors and atmosphere which could send you back down to the pits of depression if it wasn't because you were already there. I'm hanging on to the edge tho. At least I'm trying.

Don't you just hate it when you can't get comfy in bed?

Personal Fit Patterns Wish I had a sewing machine, cos this would be the ideal solution for me.

I have the worst cramp at the lower right side of my back and I can't do a damn thing about it. Painkillers doesn't work, heathingpad doesn't work and the cramp is in such a place where I can't get the muchles to strech out like I normally would do if it was in my leg or foot. Hope it decides to go away after a good nights sleep, but right now it doesn't feel like it :( Ouch

Found the link to Bejeweled via Patti and it is more than just addicting.

Geesh what is it with spammers these days. For the last two weeks I've gotten so many copies of "Sex in a Bottle" or "Great Sex in a Bottle" all from different people. I don't want to have sex with a bottle. I prefer hubby in bed (or elsewhere), thankyouverymuch :)

They finally got a new server and should be installing it right now. Good luck :)

Just had to change things around a little bit. Hope you like it :)

I knew it was too good to be true. The sh*t just crashed again.

I've changed the archiving frequency to once a month. I kinda like having the archive link list a little shorter than it was. Started to take up a lot f room. Maybe I need to redesign again. Wonder if I could make something that would take and put the archive links in a drop down box of some sort. Unfortunately I have no clue about coding and can barely get around with what is here now.

Sh*t did someone kick the Blogger servers in the butt. They're flying right now.

Would love to help make Blogger faster and much more stable, but right now all funds have to be put into the immigration pot. But maybe next year around this time I'll be able to work and actually not be so dependent on Bob for money.

Wow looks like it actually made it through this time. Just a shame I've lost so much good writing the last couple of days. :(
Sara wrote on 7:21 PM - Link - Comments

I'm still here and I would have plenty to say if it wasn't because that either I cannot log into Blogger or if I manage to get in, it makes my browser crash and burn.

It's not because I haven't had stuff to blog about the last couple of days, but Blogger is having problems and need their equipment upgraded. Read more about it on the front page.

In other news: I've finally come up with a layout for a seperate SMGD Galleries, but it's going to take a while to get everything moved around. Really would have liked to keep everything in the same place, but as I've mentioned earlier I'm running out of space so I have to move some things out on their own.

I got a nice email from Linda Roeder (About.com Personal Webpages) this morning. She wanted to feature my personal pages, so obviously they cannot be too family unfriendly ;P Tank you Linda for the encouragement and honor.

I should be used to it by now, but it obviously still comes as a surprise to me that shit happens. 2001 wasn't even 6 hours old before the first piece happened. Feels like it's going to be a long year.
