6:30am. Awake all night. Bingeing on Youtube Comedy. Discovered amazing women Liz Miele. Watch her. It is well worth the effort to find.
Had a good night. I have been struggling with a project involving galleries, images, prints. Not specifically a web site challenge but it did drive me to researching image gallery plugins. I used this site to experiment and got very frustrated I couldn't make them work. I was trying to reproduce a process I found on a UK Tea House site. The site doesn't matter but the way they were displaying their images was exactly what I wanted to do. I am not a Internet language expert (HTML) but I can read and understand enough to know how the site works underneath the covers. I found out what plugin they were using and loaded into my site. But could I get it working? The fuck I could. I was getting so angry with myself. I tried several other plugins but had no luck with them either. I deleted everything and started again. This time I found the plugin developers site and their support documentation. After following a number of convoluted dead ends I finally found what I was looking for. And didn't understand a word of it. I had to apply the code on blind faith. It didn't work. FUCK!!! What was I doing wrong? That partial understanding of HTML was enough for me to look for alternate code and try it. YeeHa!! IT WORKED!!!
I was wrapped, exuberant, happy as. I spent another two hours trying all the different configurations of the plugin and finally discovered a best fit. 1:30am I saved my work and closed the site. Turn off the beast and retire to the couch. I was happy. I watched a couple of Michael McIntyres and wet myself. That man is comedy genius. Followed up with an XL QA video. More laughs. Then I stumbled on Miss Miele. Did at least 4 hours of her. I like to laugh. It is good.
