What the fuck? Why isn't LJ letting me go back more than 350 entries? I have WAY more to catch up on than that!!

If you hate the new look of LJ-cuts, the scissors character followed by three dots (presuming your system has the font to display them), there is a way to get rid of them. The following CSS (supplied by [livejournal.com profile] zweiundzwei) will restore the old LJ cut look if added to the custom CSS portion of your journal theme.

.ljcut-link { color:transparent; margin-left:-25px; }
.ljcut-link:before { content:"( "; color:#000000; padding-left:25px; }
.ljcut-link:after { content:" )"; color:#000000; }
.ljcut-link a { margin-left:-25px; }

You may need to change the margins and padding to suit your font, and of course the color should be changed to whatever your base font color is in your layout (or whatever color you want for your lj-cut parentheses).

Spread the word! Thanks for posting this, [livejournal.com profile] toshirodragon!
velessa: (RHPS - Frank - stop that)
WTF...why did they change the way LJ cuts look? I don't like it! Now they look like outside links instead of cuts. Ugh. The stupid little scissors don't help. Why can't social media like LJ and Facebook just leave stuff alone? People don't like useless, stupid changes made for no reason.

Prevent accidental crossposting of comments from your journal:

http://emmagrant01.livejournal.com/447980.html


Instructions:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in that line.

.b-repost-item {display:none}

Once you have it pasted in there, save changes.

Ta-da! Crosspost ticky boxes gone!

ETA: This prevents the "repost to FB/Twitter" ticky boxes from being displayed when someone comments on one of your posts. It seems to work, UNLESS the person is viewing your page in their own journal style, in which case it might not work.

ETA2: Inserting the code below in your custom CSS box reportedly works for more kinds of journal styles, including custom ones (this courtesy of [info]xnguard):

.b-repost-item, FORM#qrform > TABLE[style="border: 1px solid black;"]:last-child TD[style="vertical-align: top; text-align: right;"]:first-child { display: none !important; }

Quick note to say sorry if I end up commenting on your posts like a week late, I'm slowly working my way through my FL from the day I left for LA.

Also, to the rats and mice in my tack box: IT'S ON. I had no problem with you sharing my space and coming and going as long as you weren't being destructive, but after chewing holes in my giant FULL jug of corn oil and flooding the floor of my tack box with oil while I was away, you have got to go! You also chewed through the (mostly empty) jar of MSM supplement and spilled that everywhere, WTF...
velessa: (Skip Beat! - Kyouko stressed)
Ack you people write too much!! I'm already 300+ entries behind because I had to spend a couple of days doing an accounting project, and now I'm going to be away from the computer until next Tuesday. I don't know if I'll ever catch up! O_o Let me know if I missed anything major!

I hope you all have fun long weekends planned. I'll be at Fanime the whole time; wish me luck remembering all the Japanese vocab I've forgotten so I'm not completely incapable of communicating with the guest I'm working with. =p I'm spending the rest of today and tomorrow studying my old textbooks!

Phew

I just finished up tagging all my entries, almost 900 of them. It just seemed like this journal has gotten to the point where I need them if I ever want to go back and find something.

I started on Sunday and didn't stop until 1am. I thought I might be able to get it all done, but I had about a year's worth of entries left to go and was just too tired to finish. Or so I thought. I went to bed and tossed and turned for hours, unable to sleep. I didn't want to take my sleeping medication because it was already so late, and if I did that I wouldn't be able to wake up for work. So then I got back up and tried to sleep on the couch with the tv on, because I often fall asleep this way when I'm really tired. Nope, nothing.

I ended up awake all freaking night for no reason at all, and it caused me to watch one of the most awful movies ever created, I Know Who Killed Me. I thought it'd just be a lame horror movie, but it went WAY beyond that! How can something be both predictable (I knew who the killer was within the first ten minutes) AND make no sense at all?? The "plot" was so full of holes and mixed up that it was impossible to follow, and the whole movie was really nothing more than an excuse for Lindsey Lohan to parade around in stripper outfits. Ugh, I think this was even worse than Batman Forever! Still not quite as bad as Kazaam, my ultimate worst movie ever, but it sure came close!

Anyway. I got no sleep at all, and hence felt horrible, stomach aches, sneezing and coughing fits, so I ended up calling in sick to work. Felt like crap all day and still couldn't get any sleep until it was late enough for me to take my medication and knock me out for the night whether my body liked it or not. Can I not sleep without medicinal help now? I wouldn't think so, I still fall asleep for naps all the time. It was just really bizarre.

ETA: Since all I did over the past few days was tag my own entries, I'm now waaaay behind on reading all of yours. If I comment on something a few days late I'm sorry, I'm trying to catch up on everyone!

Phew

Dude...what the heck?! Okay, everything seems to be working again, all the Japanese characters are back to normal. I didn't change anything, so I'm faulting Livejournal and more of their toying around. That was really weird.

as it seems everyone I know has one of these journal things, I thought I'd try it out. I don't know if I'll actually write much of anything, but I think if I have one of these it'll be easier to find and read posts by other people. right now I'm just trying to see how everything works. looks like a nice little thing; maybe I'll use it to rant about the horrors of grad school which I will be returning to on thursday *dread* on the other hand I probably won't have time! but this looks better than doing research and writing papers.
