Depends on what you are talking about, kid. Pretty vague here. lol If you are talking about the lil box there, it is if that's what you were going for. I don't have time blog much anymore much less make boxes. Later

It is kinda kool, but I don't think the column the give us is big enough for the boxes.

I was talking about the box. And I don't have much time to blog anymore either. But I did want to see if I could do it. GTD has great instructions in her blog for things like that and mostly I just copied the code and changed it to the color I wanted it to be.

Maybe when I have something very special to post, I'll use the box. * shrug * who knows? At least I know I can do it, er uhm, copy the code and change it to the colors I like.

    i took it to mean blogging in general......my answer to that would be - in short bursts

    the box? this whole page is made of tables...in fact, everything is on the web is made of tables....tr's and td's and cellspan's and cellpadding's all over the place......unless you've got a real need for it, probably not worth the time to learn it.....very counter-intuitive...invented by nerdy computer science majors
I'll be teaching some of these things to my advanced computers class the first nine weeks.

    HTML shits me! I can do it, I've hand written web pages, but I'd prefer a WYSIWYG editor. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should! I COULD whittle a toothpick, or buy 1000 for 50 cents!

    I like to think that the content is more important than the presentation. All meat, no fluff!

    But you see my day to day world is plain text source code. It's syntax coloured, and nicely indented to make it easy to read. My comments are red and in italics, keywords blue, sting literals yellow on a green background, integers and doubles are pink. No fluff, no borders, no tables, no fonts that are impossibly hard to read (there's a great comedy song about a love letter written in wing dings!)

    cheers, Nerd Boy!
I never knew you were a nerd boy! I love it!

    Oh yeah, serious nerd boy!!! I even have the piece of paper to prove it! The nerd stories I could tell!! LOL! But I won't bore anyone with that stuff!
I would love to hear the stories, because I am a nerd. I went to school and received my AAS in CIS. Somehow I ended up being a teacher!
