Feb 9: Updated Theme
A new year, a new theme, OK, I know it's Feburary, but January was went by far too fast. So, what to do think ? I like it, It's clean, a bit nippier but that's all relative to how fast ones internet access is.
So, so far this year, not much has happened, I'm still waiting for the Canon 450D not yet out, but I'm not deperate enough to came for a week out side some local camera shop, like some fools fo for getting a crap mobile phone, you know the one, that ipod with a phone bulted on, yep the iPhone. You can of course see some of the photo's that I have been taking over the past, with various degrees of success, from a film camera, those throw away ones, to mobile phones to a borrowed Canon 400D over at my gallery, (link above)
Other than that, not much, I may write about some Bishop who thought it might be a bright idea to kind of suggest that it may be unavoidable that we should have religious laws to be included in a Non-Secular legal system. I think this will not happen.
That's all folk(s)
Oh and Ireland lost against Frence in the Rugby... Boo, just 5 mins more and I guess we could have done it.

Aug 15: Mighty morphin' Blog
A new addition is the ability to edit the text that can be saved into the image. This is called the IPTC information. This is where you can pop in copyright info in to Jpeg images only. Not bad I have to add.
Other than that, lots of other new features. Read more info here.
Oh and by the way. I've added a e-mail announcement service from feedblitz down in the My little tag area. This service will send you and e-mail every time I do an update.
There, that's it, enough geekiness for now.
So, when you press on the image, the image should load on top of the page, with a gray overlay. If this doesn't happen, then all I can say is, it's not workin'. As the call for the script is very basic.
<a title="Clounds Over London" class="thickbox" href="/uploads/images/clouds_over_london.jpg"><img src=""/uploads/images/clouds_over_london.jpg"><img" width="110" vspace="5" hspace="5" height="83" border="0" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="/uploads/images/clouds_over_london.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="Clouds over London" /></a>
Fingers crossed this will work!?
- By having the image at an ok size to fit into you comment.
- By having a thumbnail that links to a bigger image that can load up in a new window, or a popup window
- You have a smart easy to use java script to load up the full sized image over the page, not in a new window.
Here's a nice picture of a cloud cover and colour.
Update! After a day of playin' around... the thickbox script now appears to be working. but not here.... the big question now is why?!
Jun 4: More tweakings of the theme
The original theme didn't work on firefox, so I had a look at the css file, being new to css but having a very good idea how it all works and how it glues together I managed to fix it.
Today, well yesterday, I have updated the theme a little bit more again, this time all I added was a tab bar on top of the page I'll try and finish of the theme, tidy it up and may release it for other to grab.
All comments on the theme are most welcome.
