Yeah, I got the same spike for the 14th and in lieu of accurate numbers for the day, I'd prefer an average of surrounding days... I wonder if it might make more sense for it to be an average of 4 days (2 before and 2 after) rather than an average of only the 2 days... This might result in numbers either above or below the 13th or 15th, rather than automatically being a straight line from the 13th to the 15th.
Hey guys. I registered a half-table at StripCon here in Dallas in August. I'm wanting to get a 4-foot vinyl banner made with grommets to hang either on the front of the table or behind my booth. That 4-ft will be the full width of my half table.
I'm already looking online and getting price comparisons, but I'd like to get a recommendation from someone who's already purchased one, so I know the quality will be good enough. It doesn't have to be the Cadillac of signs or anything, but I want to know that it'll have the gromets, won't be printed lopsided, won't fall apart under normal use, etc.
So have any of you printed vinyl signs for conventions? And if so, who would you recommend for the printing?
I started with the "Environmentalist" layout and have made a few small changes...
The problem I'm having is that this layout causes the content area to scroll separately from the sidebar. I'd like to make the sidebar scroll with the content, like the default behavior of a generic web page...
but I can't find any reason in the CSS for the content to scroll separately in the first place. There are a couple of references to the overflow property in the CSS, but neither of them appear to be enabling scrolling on the content area and commenting them out hasn't stopped the scrolling as far as I can tell.
What am I missing?
Shouldn't it just be a simple matter of commenting out /* overflow: auto */ on the #container element? (Which doesn't have an overflow: auto property to comment out.)
jennydevildoll:Wait, what nuances in the way an actor portrays a fictional character indicate that the actor is gay?
You know, like the scene at the beginning of the Fellowship of the Ring where Bilbo is acting all crazy about his ring and Gandalf turns to him and says "Mary, please! Actin' like you're the queen of Sheeba over some trash you found layin' in a swamp. Just take a Xanax, go with the elves and figure out your wardrobe problems when you're sipping margaritas on the beach."
LauraEss:Have always considered Gattaca and Bicentennial Man to be a matched set. They are both about transitions to what the main character is trying to achieve, and each with a bitter-sweet ending.
I'm a big fan of both films too... not sure I would say they go hand in hand like that... They're certainly both about characters who are striving to better themselves (good theme), but where Bicentennial man's mood is optimistic and playful throughout most of the film, Gattaca's mood is brooding and dystopian.
Draginbeard:I think lot of your more computer literates hated the way they treated the actual 'hacking' aspect of the movie.
Seems kind of silly to me. I was a software engineer for a decade and enjoyed Hackers overall... imo it wasn't a great movie, but it was fun enough to watch. The aspect of the film I didn't care for though wasn't about the technology at all, it was the characterizations. I thought they were in some ways too cliche, but primarily too whiny.
Kanela:also I'm guessing that having an "english-language" comic does help increase the number of readers, just as good/attractive/unique/quality drawings increase the visitors.
by the way, care to take a look? :D ...but it's in spanish :0
I think you're right... wish I spoke Spanish. I speak a little French, but probably not enough to read a comic in French tho. D:
I have the same response to zombies that I have to vampires: "this has been done to death... wake me when it's over." I just haven't seen anything interesting come out of a zombie show in a long, long time because nobody ever introduces anything genuinely new in the genre, it's always just more of the same: resource scarcity, "unexpected" zombie attacks (that really, when have you ever NOT seen coming?) and fighting zombies with crude, often makeshift weapons. The exceptions are just so rare... I did enjoy Zombie Land though, primarily because it was largely a parody of zombie movies.
Rollo:Q and A on ABC1 is a panel discussion type show which is usually politically based. What's really weird about it is that every Monday night, the twitter handle #qanda jumps to the highest trending topic in the world and internet servers in Australia start to flip out as everyone jumps on at once.
Betcha they don't have something like this in the USA (looks forward to being corrected with an EXAMPLE)!
It reminds me of Real Time With Bill Maher... which I think was cancelled... I think I've seen a couple similar American shows... the big difference imo is that at least on Q and A the panel members seem to be allowed to talk long enough for their answers to make sense... by comparison, the American shows I've seen seem mostly to be a competition for who can talk over and shout everyone else down... they should have just named them "Celebrity Let's Make A Point". ;P
Kai Faydale:evidently stumble upon is better advertising then i thought.
machinehead:I post almost all my comics no matter how funny they are or aren't. I have noticed that some of the comics I find the funniest, get the worst reactions and then ones that I find stupid get the best.
Yeah, it's impossible for me to predict how the audience will respond to my work... Rarely have I posted up something thinking it was my best work and had everyone love it. The stuff on the top of my most popular comics are generally things that I felt were good but not my best work.
Case in point, my most popular comic on DeviantArt:
