another html question

  • Aug. 31st, 2006 at 12:10 PM
does anyone know if it's possible to make superscript numbers that aren't 1, 2 or 3? i need them so i can make footnotes in my text so i'm not plagiarising stuff :).

web design helpage please!

hugely much with the meh. really not thinking i'm gonna get great marks for this, should just have stuck with writing a goddamn essay.


anyhoo. i have a slight ie problem. the background colour of my puter is (surprisingly enough) set to pink. this means that some sites in ie randomly seem to have pink backgrounds. this includes mine. which is odd, because i've specified everywhere that the background colour should be white, and it works fine in firefox.

anyone got any ideas?

please take pity on a poor stressed out shrew :(.

new improved happy shrew!

today i play the game of being a happy shrew. been miserable for about a week now for one reason or another and i'm really quite bored of being grumpy all the time when i really have a lot of things to be happy about: i have a wonderful boyfriend, some fabulous friends, i'm doing a course i really enjoy, my job doesn't suck that much and at least it pays quite well for what it is...etc. so really, i have no reason to be miserable.

my mummy and daddy and possibly my small (but bigger than me) sister are coming in a bit to take me for lunch. i haven't eaten yet today so i can be a piglet :). then i shall go to the library and get my hittites and mycenaeans hats on. i have been neglecting my studying of late, and that will not do if i'm wanting distinctionness!

hehe...i got a book yesterday from amazon about linear b. it is by jt hooker. that made me giggle!

tomorrow kryogenix beckons, hooray! a few people are coming to my house for drinkage beforehand, if you fancy joining us please let me know :).

*ubersparklehappy vibes*

computery helpness please!

is there any way that you can put pictures into your text in Word 2003 without it throwing a tantrum and saying 'no - don't put it there, put it where i want it - at the edge of the page where it won't get printed'?

alternatively is there another program i could use that will make this work?

or failing that, how do i get Word 97 back? ok so it didn't like pictures either, but at least after a short squabble it generally did what it was told.

i tried using 'help' but it just opened up a window in *fucking internet explorer* to tell me to do things i'd already done!

big. sack. of. wank.

please help me!

get me with my website - that i MADE! ALL BY MYSELF!

I'm lazy - please help me do my homework!

  • Jan. 9th, 2006 at 7:48 PM
i'm doing a debatey presentationy thing for my german oral, and the topic is "is religion relevant to the youth of today?" i am taking the 'no' point of view, and was wondering if anyone could help me by giving me any useful arguments/opinions on the matter? (please :)!) just so you know, helping me won't be cheating as i'll need to translate everything into german anyway, and this module doesn't count towards my credits - i just need to pass.

all opinions welcome (including 'yes' opinions - it might be useful to know what i could be arguing against!).

*hugs* to anyone who helps me!

thanks muchly xx

just wondering if anyone has a copy of powerpoint 2003 i could borrow?

and also if anyone knows of/has good image manipulation software - for my archaeological illustration project i'm going to do digital photography and do...things...to the photos...but i'm not sure what yet, as i don't really know what computers could do, and not really sure what the focus of the project is going to be as yet - just thought it would be quite fun and interesting to do, and might end up looking really good.

anyhoo, if anyone can help in the above matters, please let me know.

fish? FISH?!

  • Oct. 4th, 2005 at 8:30 AM
i am greatly irked by boots. i found a piece of tuna fish and a bone in my supposedly vegemanarian pasta salad yesterday. *shudders* thinking about it now makes me feel quite sick. i have just written them a very formal very angry letter, so they damn well better send me some free shit - although to be honest i doubt very much i'll be getting any food from there in the near future. this is irksome in itself as they are the only place on campus that does decent vegemanarian food that isn't pizza and chips (unless you're willing to pay a small fortune for a big meal). ah well, i suppose making packed lunchness will save me moneys. but yes, vegemanarians beware!

in happier news, me and chris saw soulwax/2manydjs last night. fooking wikkid. the djs were awesome, doing some pounding mixes of some classic choons, and it was really cool that soulwax played a set as a band as well. i used to like the bandness of soulwax many years ago before the 2manydjs malarkey, so twas fabulous to see them live. highlights included playing the bass with the use of an electric drill, a guitarist with the best comedy moustache i've ever seen and the most amazing cover version of benny benassi's satisfaction. awesomeness! the only bad thing was that it ended up going on later than we thought, and had to leave before 2manydjs finished, it being a school night and chris needing to get up early for workness. had such a cool night though, i want to see them again soon! i really like stealth as a venue as well, must go to more club nights there methinks. ooh, and i was way too excited by the discovery of the magic portal between stealth and the rescue rooms :D.

today, i will be mainly sorting out cdness for tonight's djing fun. i'm quite excited about it, and a bit less nervous after looking through my music collection and working out what kinda stuff i can realistically play, it being both rock and mainstreamy, and realising that i can easily fill two half hour sets. i still have butterflies though.

i might have a german lesson later, i don't know whether to be too optimistic though. i went all the way to campus yesterday and the bloody teacher didn't turn up. this was very irksome, but hopefully she'll bother today. i know that if i don't go she'll probably turn up and i'll get in trouble so i'd better go really!
