Technical Support / Re: Why not another news box question!

Ahh, that completely makes sense now.  Minus the IE weirdness.  Thanks for the corrected version, Xepher!  I was also able to eliminate the #xepher2 DIV as well.  And cleaner code is always better. ^-^

Try float:left for #left and removing float:right for #right?

Oh, duh.  >.<  Take out the float:right and that might fix it.

Try moving the nested DIVs completely outside of the TABLE structure?

If I remember correctly, Fes' suggestion is different from what you have, actually.  Putting the align=right in the actual HTML tag vs. the text-align: right in the CSS is different.  I'd try that and see if it works.

If it doesn't, you can still have the nested div right under the table without having spacing/positioning problems.  Just pop it under and play with the CSS.  If you need any help, you have my LJ. :P
I've attached screenshots to help walk though. ^_^  I have a Mac and Dreamweaver 8 so the layout might be a little different but the process should be the same.

FIRST: MAKE NEW FOLDER AND MAKE COPIES OF ALL THE PAGES YOU'RE GOING TO WORK ON!!!  I only say this because it's the first time and there's no "Undo" if you make a mistake.  Which I learned the hard way.  *cough*

1:  Edit > Find and Replace.  Easy!

Here's where things get a little detail-oriented.

2: Find the "Find in" menu.  Choose from any of the selected.  Because you said you have 200+ documents to get through, I chose "Folder..."  However, if you open multiple documents (say, do them in batches of 10), you would choose "Open Documents".

3: If you choose "Folder...", you may or may not receive a prompt to find the folder you want to look in.  If not, it should be nearby - mine says "Phoexix: Users: MK: Sites: sendmeonmyway"  USE THE COPIES YOU MADE EARLIER (if you choose this method).

4: Go to the "Search" menu.  Now you have a bunch of choices.  I chose "Source Code", which meant that it will only go through your HTML.

5: Then, in the "Find" box, type what you want to find and in the "Replace" box, type what you want it to be replaced with.  Full HTML tags can be used here.

6: Click "Replace All".  You might get a warning, like "Are you sure you want to do this you crazy foolish person you??", you might not.  But that's why we have the test folder!

7: As the process runs, a box should come up with a report of all the things it's replaced.  You can double check it, if you want, but as long as the code is the same (like in a template), you should be okay. (Step 1) (Steps 2-3) (Steps 4-6)

I use Firefox as well.  Looks better now.

Re: the fonts, I'd set a base size or something because I've got incredibly tiny type showing up for me.  I've uploaded a screencap so you can see how it looks in proportion to the XN banner.
Knowhow Trading Post / Re: Writing a Resume
September 07, 2008, 12:52:40 AM
This is the stuff from my college.  Does your own college career center have a website with advice?

What job are you applying for?  Also, if you write a basic resume, I'd be happy to look it over.  I'm not an expert or anything but I might be able to help for word choice.

As for references, you will want to contact the people you'd like to be references, get their contact information in case the potential employer wants to call them, and list their information.

I definitely like this one and hope it gets accepted.  9-lives was very cute.  Like others have said, the font on the site is less than desirable, but I think that overall you're off to a good start.

Agreed with tickyhead.   (Sorry, I can't be the good cop here.)

Since you've worked on many flash games, websites, and animations that have gotten good reviews and are/were published on other sites, where are they?  Forgive me if I'm being rude, but don't you have some back ups?  Or even links to the sites you've published them on?  Even if they're not in your portfolio, due to hosting limitations (and this is completely understandable), this application would be strengthened by a broader demonstration of your work.

I suppose we could just message b-funk and ask what her input on this project is.  Maybe she's got some ideas already?  Something to show us how this game will develop?

Okay, so that last one was more disturbing than funny.  Here's a cute one to make things better inside the brain?

Safe for work, unless your boss hates kiwis (the animal, not the fruit).

I'm not sure if this is funny or laughter was punctuated with WTF moments.

The video link just gave a small version...the larger one is better (if that's even the right word) and in that page.

Potentially NSFW, if your boss objects to interspecies mingling and boobs on a panda.
I use as a reference if I forget something.  They cover html, css, and the basics of php.

I also use Dreamweaver, pretty much like Xepher said.  You can do html and css via WYSIWYG but it's so much easier (and faster) to type it out yourself.  As long as you memorize the basic structure of css, everything else is like picking off a buffet (mostly) and plugging those appropriate bits in (things to change the font-color, the size, etc).

And there's nothing wrong with tables, not really.  You're an artist first, webmaster second, and a coder third.  If you're shunned for using tables, you're in good company with thousands of other personal pages out there, probably who use Frontpage.  So my answer to whoever has an issue with your lack of coding expertise is, "Who cares?"  (Okay, that wasn't my FIRST thought but I have the censorship llama glaring at me.)
