Okay, for weeks and weeks now I’ve wanted to figure out how to make up my own livejournal style, so I keep going back to the developers section and reading the information there, and as soon as I do, nothing makes sense anymore… like I’ve forgotten how to translate english into coherence or something. I’m not a programmer, I’ll never claim to be one, but I did take it in high school for a few years, so I know a bit about it – unfortunately that doesn’t seem to have any impact on my ability to understand what I’m reading. I can’t figure out what anything is referring to, or what I have to change and where, and all sorts of other crud. I’ve asked Jay to help me out with it, but he doesn’t want to learn it, and really, I’d just be happy if he did it for me. I don’t know what kind of layout I want, I just know I don’t want that custom one that everyone else is using, and I don’t want the standard livejournal setup. This is frustrating and annoying me and I’m way too moody right now to even want to be thinking about it, but it’s been bugging me for like a month now, and I don’t know how to fix it. Damnit. I’m annoyed and frustrated and upset and everything else, and the more I try to figure it out the more frustrated I get because I just don’t GET it. And I’m not happy with this generic layout thing at all.

    tell me about it

    yeah so if you got my first few entries I had the same problems… it’s just so much to take in at once… but now I’m getting the hang of it. Not that I could really sum up in a comment… I don’t know if you ahve any HTML knowledge behind you, but that helps a ton, and then looking at the “old version” instead of the supposedly “easy” new version of the style thing, might make you see things a little clearer… perhaps if you want I can try and explain better via email or something.

      Yep, I know html… and I’d definitely like some help figuring this out, if you can…

            Yeah I had it, and forgot about it, and had been using AIM and then I guess I set up another account which I still hardly use… I’ll br on real late tonight, otherwise I’m sure I’ll catch you during the week.
