Thank you so much to Dusty, Lightyoruichi and Spinzer for the help!

I discovered this morning that somehow my themes were all showing their sidebar content in the footer instead of where they should be. As it was an error that spread across themes, I began to panic that I had messed up my Wordpress installation somehow. I had just installed the new Sail Away theme too and thought that was the cause.

Deleting it, of course, didn’t make a difference.

After my call for help went out on Twitter, Spinzer suggested that it could be a missing div, and I poked him on GTalk to troubleshoot further. He and Lightyoruichi both suggested that it could have been widgets-based.

While puttering around, Spinzer asked if I used code for my search box widget. It took me literally around 30 seconds to realise that it might not have been the widget, but that whole chunk of code I’d use for the Meme entry yesterday (now under Pending Review till I get the time to modify it).

I hid the entry, refreshed my main page, and.. VOILA! HELLO MY DEAR “REACH INTO YOUR SOUL” I MISSED YOU!

The lesson, kids, is NEVER, EVER, post code without reading through it carefully. I used to do this all the time but have gotten lazy in recent years.

At least I’m glad it wasn’t malware or anything. ~_~

I’ll probably post a list of links here if I do write more than an entry a day. It’ll be Dreamwidth’s 1st anniversary soon, and they’re celebrating with 3 Weeks of DW.

This is my first entry.

The first five to comment in this post get to request a drabble/fic of any pairing/character/setting (pairing and characters only from fandom I’m familiar with).

Drabble only folks. That, according to Kitsy, is usually about 100 words, so expect shorts (will probably overrun). In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level free will.

Fandoms are:
Fire Emblem
Ruroni Kenshin
Flame of Recca (anime only)
Blood+
Seirei no Moribito
Sakura Wars
Sailormoon
Yuyu Hakusho

XD

Prompts taken:
1. C – A character talks to another character about the lethality of pencils.
2. Deru- Interaction between Yahiko and Tsubame
3. Zhilbar – Sanosuke meets Kuwabara and debates manliness

Words for the year

Thursday, January 21st, 2010 11:15 am
geminianeyes: Cute sisters from PW as kids (Default)

Inspired by Joanna’s A Word to Last the Year post, here’s my word for 2010:

Tenaciously.

It was a word I discovered from Confident Writing sometime last year. Tenacity means, according to Oxford:

  1. holding firmly to something.
  2. persisting in existence or in a course of action.

My weakness has never been starting. It’s always been completion. Distractions figure too much in my life, and even with goals, I tend to drop personal projects once I’ve stopped being infatuated with them, even if the projects are uncompleted.

See: Nanowrimo, Queen of Daggers, Office Meido Chronicles.

The main reason I give up so easily on such projects is writer’s block. Once I hit a writer’s block, I make token attempts at persisting, and if it works, it works. If it doesn’t, I put it away and promise to come back later.

Which rarely happens.

That’s why my word this year is tenacity. It’s sticking to finishing what I started, no matter how long it takes. No matter how dreary. No matter how much I want to curl up and die. No matter the bad days. No matter the good days.

Perseverance and Tenacity.

Yosh!

If you don’t see me around, don’t worry. I’m still here. Just… mightily distracted by Nanowrimo. And I do have that entry called “Things I like about Windows 7″ coming up.

Ok back to novelling. :D

Made a few entries into Pending Review mode, as they’ve been the cause of me not having a Page Rank in the past 3 years, not to mention I think it’s finally time they came down anyway. They were my sponsored posts. Now looking to see if the Nuffnang ones will be the ones affecting my page rank.

Should I integrate my Twitter into my blog? Thinking of putting it in the sidebar, but considering how pretty my sidebar is now (mainly text with some small icons) I’m wondering if it’s worth it.

Opinions?

Open Up Your Mind

Monday, August 3rd, 2009 01:03 am
geminianeyes: Cute sisters from PW as kids (Default)

My blog, first and foremost, will always remain my home. It’s a messy home, meant for me. If you’ve dropped by, Hi. If you’re a friend, welcome.

From My Journal on Writing.Com, to Ramblings at Blogspot, to Broken Shield and Sword on Wordpress and finally my own domain, my blog has changed many names, but it has remained quintessentially, me. Like me, it’s a whimsical thing, with various attempts to keep focus and purposeful.

More than anything, it reminds me there are things to live for. It is a recorder of my days. A snapshot of my life. Origins will tell you part of the story.

Which is why, today, on a whim, this early morning of 3 August 2009, I decided to change the name of this blog. It’s a timely reminder, one that should have come earlier. I’d forgotten this song existed.

Reach into your soul ashita ga mienakute mo
Yes ikiru tsuyosa ga areba
You can take another look from the other side
ai no subete ni deau made

Reach into your soul, even if you cannot see tomorrow
Yes, if you have the strength to live
You can take another look from the other side
Until all you see, is love. (my translation)

Song: Open Up Your Mind
Performed by: Mirai
Original lyrics and translation here.

moshimo ima subete ga umaku nante ikanai
makesou ni naru toki datte
hitomi wo tojireba kokoro kara
sekai ga miete kuru

In this world when life can be so tough
You must be strong
Just believe in yourself and don’t you fear
So open up your mind and close your eyes
Take another look from the other side

kodoku na yoru demo mayoi osoreru toki mo
ima wa hitori demo kono ashi de doko made mo
aruite ikeru hazu dakara

Just hold on tight hitomi tojita nara
Look inside yourself kagayaki ga aru kara
Yes subete shinjite hoshii
You can take another look from the other side

Just hold on tight kokoro kujikete mo
Reach into your soul ashita ga mienakute mo
Yes ikiru tsuyosa ga areba
You can take another look from the other side
ai no subete ni deau made

kono sekai de ikinuiteiku tame no tsuyosa wo
anata ni negatteiru kara
kokoro no tobira wo hiraitara
nanika ga miete kuru

Just remember you are not alone
So don’t you fear
Even though you’re miles away
I’m by your side
So open up your mind and close your eyes
I’ll be there for you no matter where you are

hoshi no inochi nara nagai kedo itsu made mo
onaji kono hibi ga kurikaesu wake ja nai
ashita wa dare ni mo mienai

Just hold on tight hitomi tojita nara
Look inside yourself kodou kanjiru kara
Yes MIRAI shinjite hoshii
You can take another look from the other side

Just hold on tight kokoro kujikete mo
Reach into your soul ashita ga mienakute mo
Yes chigau sekai ga atte
You can take another look from the other side
ai no subete ni deaeru yo

Just hold on tight hitomi tojita nara
Look inside yourself kodou kanjiru kara
Yes MIRAI shinjite hoshii
You can take another look from the other side

Just hold on tight kokoro kujikete mo
Reach into your soul ashita ga mienakute mo
Yes chigau sekai ga atte
You can take another look from the other side
ai no subete ni deau made

Regular posting will resume once I can finish off the writing I promised Regina for the Pixel Project, the magazine articles I owe Max and Geri (who are going to kill me it’s more than three months overdue ahahahahaha) and the most important of all, work.

OK BACK TO WORK!

For random silly things that don’t make my blog cause really I need some place to laugh, please drop by my Twitter.

Testing post, Part 2

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009 11:15 pm
geminianeyes: Cute sisters from PW as kids (Default)

This is to see if JournalPress will post to both Livejournal and Dreamwidth. Though it then begs the question, what exactly am I going to use DW for? It’s a nice journal, but for writing I already have inksome and this journal. I should probably stop playing around too many sites.

Edit: Well, what do you know? When you move the boxes in Wordpress’ admin manager, they will automatically resize themselves to fit the sidebar and bottom bars. Interesting.

*Updates post*

Edit 2: Ok, I found the crossposting customise link section. Now… how do I get them to appear as public?

Edit 3: Apparently, whenever I change a setting and then edit a post, it’ll show up if I set it so (see LJ entry which changed from Private to public). Wondering if I should use back my old box sig though.

Edit 4: I was right. Hmm… put the mirrored to the right, or to the left?

Grandchild of edit: Ok, sleepy time. Nites!

Test post

geminianeyes: Cute sisters from PW as kids (Default)

This is a testing post to confirm if Wordpress will crosspost to Dreamwidth which will then crosspost to LJ.

Looks like it works from Wordpress to Dreamwidth. Now from DW to LJ.

Edit 1: Hmm… after a bit of tinkering, it works from WP to DW. Mainly because I used the wrong domain extension for DW (hint: it’s .org, not not .com).

However, it looks like I have to enter manually from DW to post to LJ. Will be investigating this tonight when I get home. Geekery senses… tingling!

Edit 2: It seems that crossposting from WP to DW works (an error here and there is actually pretty misleading) but DW doesn’t allow you to post from DW to LJ automatically. And it seems that they might not introduce that anytime soon. Hmm…
