Another Day and More HTML

Posted on February 23rd, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

I’m still finding it quite difficult to get my head around it the more I read into it. At the minute I’m reading about formatting elements, and I’ve just read about creating lists…ordered with numbers, ordered with letters, ordered with roman numbers, unordered with squares, unordered with circles,definitions!
The first few pages I look at are ok, then it goes into telling you to put line breaks everywhere and how to align text and how to get it to do this and this and this…arrrggghhhhh arrrgggghhhhh arrggghhhh!
I’m doing it aswell. It tells you to use notepad and to copy and paste html codes from the website into notepad and then to open it in a web browser. Yeah, ok, thats pretty simple…but I’m still trying to fathom out what they mean and why they’re there and what they do!
I will get it into my head, I will, I will, I will.

Another thing that really bothers me is the student elections. The bed sheets and posters make the whole university look really tacky, its not nice to look at. Especially now I have to look at my housemate’s face everyday I walk into the main building. There’s a reason I hate going home, because he’s there, and now he’s all over campus…I can’t get away from him!! That may seem like the most horrid thing someone could ever say about a person, but believe me, if you met him, you’d feel the exact same way!

Yayy Tizag!!

Due to the lovely Alex I may now be on my way to becoming a HTML wizz-kid! (nahh!)

But, he has introduced me to a site called Tizag and its slightly more understandable than what I was previously reading. And it tells me that I only have to read for about 15minutes to 1 hour a day about HTML…how brilliant is that?!

The Common Cold

Posted on February 16th, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

Also known as: (viral upper respiratory tract infection (VURI), acute viral nasopharyngitis, acute viral rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza, or a cold). It is a contagious, viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system, primarily caused by rhinoviruses, (picornaviruses) or coronaviruses.

And I have it! Its horrible, its snotty, and its ridiculously inconvenient. It makes you sneeze at the exact WRONG times, e.g. in a lecture room full of students in the middle of a lecture right when you need the name of a case, or when you’re having a one-to-one with your tutor and you have no tissue at hand, it makes your nose run constantly, and the most awful sound you can possibly make is coming out of your nose!

My process on learning HTML is verrryy slow. Its complex, confusing and c…c…c…complicated! In all honesty I have absolutely no idea what to do with it all. I’m viewing the source on nearly every webpage I look at and I’m just like…eh?! It reminds me of crazy alien writing that you might see in films. Kind of like when people go exploring and they come across all of the wall markings. The only difference is, someone is normally able to read them…I’m NOT that person!! Oh my goodness me…

I’m currently learning about HTMLs…to be perfectly honest, they’re very boring and confusing.
I know that you must have a start tag and an end tag…everything else, erm, its not sticking!

I’ll just keep reading and hope for the best!!

Learning HTML

Posted on February 2nd, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

Hmmm…slightly confuddling but there we go!
I’ve had a little look around and I’m going to start a tutorial on Friday.

Had a lovely little tattoo on Saturday. It hurt like Hell!! I will never ever ever have another one on my back.
It reads: ‘The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return’ and its origin is brilliant! (only just thought to look it up though!)
I thought it was from the film Moulin Rouge (well it is) but it was originally from a song called ‘Nature Boy’ by Eden Ahbez which was used for the film Moulin Rouge. I bet most of you already knew that!

Good Morning World!

First of all..Come On Murray!!
Murray v Nadal LIVE on now. He’s doing quite good and its an awesome match so far. Incredible shots being played from them both. God I love Tennis! Its about the only sport I really really enjoy playing and watching.

And secondly…I’m still having a play with the ‘ict root blog’ at the minute, sorted out a theme and widgets that may suit the real blog when its created. This one is just a tester, an experiment if you wish, to see how the real one will look and work.
So far, I suppose its not too bad apart from the little problem I’m having trying to incorporate Nick Jackson’s Blog. Its fed mine through the root blog with no problem but I’ve tried to feed Nick’s through and its not having it unfortunately. Maybe its something I haven’t done…most probably is!!
Anyhoo…hopefully will get it sorted (with a little help from Joss) and then in the not too distant future, will have a real root blog set up for the Online Services Team to write on! And then, maybe, the whole of ICT, then….the whole University, MWAHAHAHAHA!!

Tincy Wincy Problem

Posted on January 22nd, 2010 by Kirsty Adams

So, after the blogs had been switched to a new server, I couldn’t access them…truth be told, I had a slight heart attack! I wanted to write in my blog and I couldn’t get onto it. Never ever ever thought I’d say that but its true, I wanted my blog and I couldn’t get to it!

Then Tim sorted it out!!

All good now =)

But still had absolutely no interest in blogging. Its looking pretty bleak at the minute, not good.
