Bigger and Better.

This Bloviating Ham & Egger Jersey Guy won’t be in Austin next week, but I will.

Check out the previous entry.  Yeah, the one with the teeny picture.  I spent a couple hours in wee hours of the morning trying to figure out how to make the farookin’ image the size of the original.

 After a couple hours of sleep, I tried for another hour or so with zero success.  Just a moment or two shy of tossing Mr. Computer out the window, I dropped Dogette** a note.  She, after all, does all kinds of fancy things with WordPress on her site (e.g. bathrobes, Goth Undies of Despair and the world-famous 12 Poop Series). 

 Rather than wear out my fingers trying to explain all the undoubtedly stupid things I tried to get the damned image up in its original size, I enclosed a set of keys to the place and asked her to rummage around.

Next thing I knew, there it was — just the way I couldn’t get it to look.  She also sent me instructions on how to do it myself next time.  The instructions are clear, but whether I will be able to execute them is, at best, a crapshoot.

I thank you, Dogette, and so does Doctor Doctor who keeps track of Mr. Blood Pressure.

** I figured that Craig could use a break from dealing with Mr. Techno-Stoopid, particularly on a Sunday morning with a bunch of little ones running about. 



  1. ROFL – thank you Dogette!

    Yet another blog meet I will miss this year – I’m on a roll I tell you. Have a great time Jim. One of these days we’ll end up at the same meet and I’ll get to see the farookin’ great hair. *grin*

  2. Then again, non of us (I’m presuming to include Dogette and Craig with myself) would have the faintest idea of how to navigate the booby-trapped minefield that is the legal system. Your thing is Lawyer Stuff, and our respective fields are elsewhere.

  4. Jim kindly neglected to mention that one of the “fancy things” I managed to do to his blog was accidentally DELETE his original “Austin” post, during my fevered and highly-skilled work. So I sent him an apologetic email (no, I didn’t make the Subject line “OOOPS”) and announced I’d solved his image-sizing problem in the process. “I cut off a pinkie, but the Botox turned out great.”
