  7. Wow - so impressive! Congrats and thanks for all the gorgeous pictures.

  8. Nancy, congrats and happy graduation! Beautiful beautiful phtoos. So awesome to see them all lined up!

  9. Wow, Nancy. That's an amazing roundup. Congratulations!!! My hat off to you, really! You should be proud of yourself. I love how you made a mosaic out of all your cakes. How did you get those pictures arranged like that?

  10. Hanaâ: the picture mosaic took a little fiddling. First I played with Flickr (where I keep my cake photos) and decided I wanted to use their standard 'square' size for each cake. Then I worked out that I could fit 5 of those in the fixed-width posting area in the blogspot template I use.

    Then came the 2 laborious parts: I went though the cakes in order, finding a picture in Flickr and pasting the URL for that square size into a draft post. After every 5 pictures I put in a forced line break (br clear="all"), and at the change in chapters I put in a blank line. But Flicker links the picture to Flickr itself, and I wanted to link to my blog posts.

    So, then I made another pass through the cakes, finding my blog post and replacing the Flickr URL with the right blog URL. It helped a lot that I'm comfortable working in html--I maintain a couple of web sites as part of my job.

    The hardest part was dealing with Blogspot, because I couldn't always predict how my html code would display in the canned template. I made a couple of tweaks after I put up the post to correct the line spacing and such. However, I don't want to know more about Blogpost customization much less moving to something like a Wordpress blog, so I'll be content with what I got!

  11. Wow, that's a lot of work but it came out awesome-looking! I've contemplated changing up the CSS of my Blogger template but it's been such a pain that I gave up for now. Did you use any tools or just plain ol' HTML in the Notepad editor? (I write C# code by day) :o)

  12. I have a Dreamweaver license on my work machine, but for this I just used TextEdit. (I'm on a Mac at home--at work I have both a Mac and a Windows box.) Dreamweaver is a big help if I start getting into stylesheets, but it didn't seem worth it to move this file over to the work computer, let Dreamweaver help with changing all the URLs, then move it back or update with the Web interface to Blogspot. It really didn't take too long with the file laid out to make the breaks between each picture and entry stand out.
