Snap Shot and Spellcheck

I have a blog on WordPress.com, besides this one (WordPress.org). Anyway, on that site, something called Snap Shots is enabled (there is not as much control by the user there).

I figured that it had to be a plugin of some kind and I was able to find it. It’s very easy to install. You don’t have to be a programmer, and if you go to the Snapshot web page, they even have a 1 click installation button. So now, if you hover your mouse over a link, it will show you a snapshot (get it ๐Ÿ™‚ ) or preview of the page that it is linked to.

While checking out .COM, I examined the spellchecker since I haven’t been able to get it to work on the .ORG site and it worked. So, I came to this site and tried it, and it worked perfectly.Spellcheck in visual editor Prior to this, I would get an error message. Now you click on the spellcheck and that turns it on and checks the spelling, then underlines the misspelled words in red. Clicking on the red words will offer suggestions. Now, I think you should be able to click on the suggestion and that will replace the word, but that doesn’t happen.

Follow-up:

It didn’t work because for whatever reason, Camino won’t play. Works fine in FireFox.

new blog theme

I like this theme. It’s called Biru and it’s by BlogOhBlog. Kind of new and fresh looking, so I’ll keep it for now. There are a number of themes I like, though, so I’m investigating theme switchers. Actually I tried one today, but it was buggy.

Meanwhile, Enigma4Ever has a first hand report on the Democratic political race in Cleveland, and seems to have some insight into Obama’s popularity that many in the media miss.

He is trying to Unite the Dems, but also unite us as People that have suffered for 7 years.

Check it out. Cool blog.

outward change

I decided I wanted to see something different, so I changed the theme. I’ll go back to my previous theme after a while because there are some things lacking. I downloaded a few other themes, but they don’t seem to work very well.

After I wrote the above, I changed the theme again.

Maybe I should keep the outside the same, and change the inside. ๐Ÿ˜‰

playing with youtube

The other day, I had to send a video to someone and sent what I thought was a small quicktime movie. Unfortunately, they could not open it.I have avoided YouTube because I know just enough about video to make me dangerous. What resolution? What codec? What size? How many megs? This glitch with sending the video forced me to look at YouTube as a solution. So, I tried it and the result is below. Of course there were a number of glitches but it was easier than I thought.

Now I just have to find out how I can center the image on the page.Looks like it also messes up the stuff written underneath it too.Apparently, I cannot use the special video player… It seems to mess up stuff. This looks okay now. oops… wrong again
