My Favorite Film This Summer

468x60_30k_pirates.jpg This is, without a doubt, my favorite film so far this summer. I was grinning like a drunken idiot through half the movie. Of course it is my all time favorite ride ever. I've always, always loved it. Even though it's now 30 years old and they switched out the pirates chasing women for women chasing pirates I still love it. Why? Because pirates rule.

City of Heroes

Well, here's the big project that's dominated my life in one way or another for the past three years. I first conceived of City of Heroes and was the game's Lead Designer for the first couple years or so. These days I do vast amounts of writing for the game.

New Image Functions

archer.jpg Rick, please make note of how an image is added.
1)Choose "Upload File" from the posting menu. If you do any editing before you do this, it will be lost, so don't try to create an entry and then add an image to it, upload the image firs, then edit the category and such.
2)A popup window will appear. Choose the file and click "upload"
3)a new window will appear. The default choice will show "Create a new entry". your other choice is "show me the HTML", you can use that to paste the image code into an entry you are already editing, but usually, you will just create a new enty.
4)There is a new cool function for making thumbnail images. Check the box so you will get a thumbnail. The default setting shows you the pixel dimensions of the image you have uploaded. You can change these to any pixel dimensions you want, or you can change them to reflect a Percentage of the original image size. Clicking "constrain proportions will make sure that the thumbnail is the right dimensions.
5)Choose pop-up image or embedded image. Usually you will want an embedded image.
6)Now you will see a new entry with the code for the image in the Entry Body section. Give it a title, a category, and if you want to add some text you can do so. If you add the text into the Extended Entry area, then the text will appear on the right side of the image on the pictures page. You can add text into the Entry Body section, either above or below the code and it will appear on the left side, above or below the image. For the Pictures page, the except is not used at all, so don't enter anything in there.
NOTE: check out the layout of the pictures page, it is a little different than other pages. A little practice and you will be Mr. Image.
