The Deliverator – Wannabee

So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

No bag of chips, yet.

Well, I am feeling more confident in my understanding of how the wp-layout.css marks everything up. Being able to select a portion of a page in firefox, right clicking and selecting “view selection source” is really invaluable. It really helped me quickly track down what css classes were responsible for the formatting of each page element. Yet another way in which Firefox is the far superior browser! I ended up feeling confident enough that I have started adding my own classes.

I know I said I wasn’t going to waste much time on this, but I feel pleased to have something to show for my efforts of last semester. I took Media 109 at BCC recently (essentially a XHTML/CSS course) , which was the sole prerequisite for taking Video 112, the video editing class in which I am currently enroled. I still haven’t found any rationale as to why Media 109 would be a prerequisite for Video 112 – the subjects have been completely unrelated *thusfar* (and I have about a week left in this semester). This left me feeling pretty bitter at first, but I am warming up to it. I did enjoy the class, did well in it, and have gotten some use out of the skills/knowledge acquired by taking it. I tend to get very upset with all the bureaucratic and arbitrary nonsense that it seems I continually have to deal with whenever I interact with governmental institutions (academic institutions in particular). It often leaves me with the visual equivalent of a broken record, repeating in my mind – that of a dog jumping through infinite hoops…
