I was up and out at just gone four this morning. I tend not to bother with sunrises as I always seem to find that mine are far from subtle.
I have had a few goes at re-working the header. It fades in much more smoothly now and despite it being a forty frame GIF I managed to get the file size down to 717KB. That’s fine for a header and it seems to load fast enough.
The font is UnZialish from DaFont. It only comes in capitals so that solved one dilemma. I had to leave it for a day as I had somehow got several frames out of order. Lord knows how. It took ages to find them and put them back in the right place. There were lots of “Well Bless my Souls.” This one repeats continuously but the header just does it once. Blogger definitely accepts GIF files now so that saves uploading to PhotoBucket and copying the HTML across. Wonderful. The only changes I would make are to have the first frame text free and give it a duration of a second, the second to have it fade in and fade out continuously and the third would be to change my name to Steven or stretch the “A” and see if I can pull it’s right hand foot out. I’ll try it when the rain arrives. I like stuff symmetrical. I guess Paths would do it. Suggestions are not only welcome but would speed the job up.
There was little to see on our main walk. Thousands of Midges and they were biting, horrible things they are. I’m still itching at the thought of them or because of them.
It’s giving heavy rain for later so the cave may be a bit more exciting tomorrow.
That’s all for today.
