What Emily does around here

Postby Shiro on Thu Jan 25, 2001 8:39 am

You may have noticed I made an "e-mail Emily" button on the site. I know it seems a little weird (Emily doesn't co-write the comic or anything) so let me explain what her duties are...<P>Emily! Get over here and tell the folks at home what you do around here!<P>Em: I was the person who originally taught this idiot Dreamweaver and Photoshop.<P>So if you like the site layout, Emily is the person to e-mail.

I thought she was the bishonen boy wrangler!<P>------------------

Under fallen rocks and stones
At the end of a disconnected phone
Down an unmarked street
And buried, deep beneath your feet."

Well yes, she does that too. But I have doubts as to whether or not wrangling bishonen is exactly legal. So I thought I'd list her legitimate jobs.

Heh, "wrangling" bishonen. It sounds like we ride horses out into the desert and lasso them. Then we brand them, bring them back to the ranch and sing campfire songs about the mystery and majesty of the great wild bishonen herds.<P>They go thundering over the horizon like the buffalo. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

Yo, it's Em, I finally decided to show up here after being too lazy to post. I was inspired by the bishounen wrangling, and urged on by Shiro, to draw a picture of a roundup.
<A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/lougarry/bish.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.geocities.com/lougarry/bish.jpg</A> <P>It's a pretty big file.<P>And here's an explanation:
The rope used is silk, we don't want to hurt their bishy necks, do we? And the weight keeps 'em from going anywhere. The creature is a riding wolf because horses are too damn hard to draw.<P>-Lesath

I like Em's art style. She's going to have her own site sometime this spring (probably!) But I wouldn't count on it, because she's the biggest art perfectionist I've ever met. She throws away most of the stuff she draws. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/mad.gif">

And speaking of site layout.....
Your celtic image thingy has a black line through it on the main page. Your code:<P>(tried to paste it in, but the msg board bombs)<P>Is including a sub table in the second Table Cell (TD). This will invariably put a space between things (in my experience). To get the same effect try something like this:
-td-
first image
-td-
second image (with the align=left propery), -div (align=right)-title,-br-,-br-,your name-end div-<P>then again, I think only IE supports DIV.. :P there are other more complicated ways to do it, but another simple way would be to make the title and your name an image, then it would be super simple.<p>[This message has been edited by Dedos (edited 02-02-2001).]

Dammit! It's not in the daily template, is it?
Oh well, I'll fix it today. I've been meaning to clean up my links page anyway. Make it a little less ugly. And find somewhere else to put those stupid banners...
so I'll add the image to the list of stuff I gotta do on the site.

I'm sure 4.5x and above does, not so sure about earlier than 4.5. Since it's part of the HTML 4 standard, any recent browser should support it.<P>------------------

Okay, I fixed it. I also cleaned up a bunch of stuff on the site as well.
That little celtic image has caused me more trouble than anything else on the site. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/mad.gif">

I'm sure it has been lots of trouble, but it's worth it to have some sort of organic flow instead of having every element on the page look like it's kept in its own seperate box. My comic also got a (slightly) new look, and I now have an overlapping image in the top left, too. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Blech, I hate having to work on Sunday...
