Vid: Alienation up on my new website

I've set up a website for myself at keerawa.slashcity.org. Yay me!
I'll be hosting my vids and fanfiction there. It's still embryonic, but I'm happy with it.

My Farscape vid, "Alienation", is hosted there now for your viewing pleasure. My two older Highlander vids are also up, in case anyone was hesitating to brave Filefront or YouSendIt's interface.

Please check it out and let me know if there are any technical issues with the website.

BTW, is anyone else finding it impossible to highlight text on LJ since they switched formats?

Yes, I have had that highlighting problem...

Yes! I thought that was just me. And yay, your vid is up!

Yes, having that highlight problem! Have found a workaround, not happy with it, but it does work:

1. Left click your cursor at the end of the phrase you want to highlight (You'll be working from right to left; haven't made it work from left to right -- maybe it's just me). The tough part is, you may not see your cursor where you clicked it, you just have to know that you did.
2. Press and hold the Shift key.
3. Then move your cursor (do not hold down the left mouse button, just move the cursor) and left click at the start of the phrase you want to highlight. Voila, highlighted text!

I cannot tell you how much practice this has taken. I'm using IE on Win2k, for your reference.

I hate LJ.

Excellent! This even works on my Mac. Thanks for the tip!

And very good news about your new site, Keera! Will go exploring around, and hopefully can figure out a way to view the vids (all my Mac-ish speed doesn't help with the dialup connection, alas *g*. )

You're welcome! I've rebuilt this damned computer 3 times in the last 6 weeks, and I figured it was just me, that I'd screwed up something. Took me until yesterday to figure out it was only LJ windows that had the highlight problem. Never occurred to me that anyone else might be having a problem until Keerawa's post.

I'd love for you to watch them, Cath!

If the files are too big for your dial-up, let me know. I'll whip up some itsy-bitsy versions for you. Less pretty, but better than nothing.

I don't want to put you through extra effort (that can go toward writing stories!!!) I'll see if it's possible to open tomorrow at work during a lunch break. (If it is...er...work safe, that is...*g*)

Thoroughly work safe. I'm not talented enough to make clips from network TV look non-work safe. *grins*

Although the Farscape vid does have someone eating funny mushrooms. And an alien peeing on a crowd of people. So I suppose it depends on the work environment.

That is just incredibly helpful, thank you!
Sep. 17th, 2006 05:40 pm (UTC)
And yay! for posting your vids!

Thanks Mapmaker!

I've found that you can go from the "Horizon" page to the lj user's main page to highlight text. And you can't highlight text in the comment box either. Just cursor to delete. :(
