missing links

In case you are wondering, the last post on Somalia, sent all the links down to the bottom of the page. I have tried changing font size, and deleting the picture, etc. But can't sort it out.
Something about that posting has buggered up the page format.

the sentences are too long... try breaking them up... it works for me most times.

Thanks it is a good tip, but as nealrly all of it is quotes from someone else's writing I haven't made any difference by editing the few lines I wrote myself. Oh well.

DesertPeace said...

You don't get my point... I'm not telling you to edit anything... just go through the sentences and press enter before the end of the longer ones... you won't lose anything, it just moves down a line... try it.

AN said...

tried that, but still no joy :o(

I assume you are using Internet Explorer... so am I.
But... on Firefox your blog looks just fine... could be just a glich in IE.
My only other suggestion would be to just include the links that your blog is based on and redo it removing the text completely... except for the links.
Good luck!

Firefox looks good...
IE not so much...

I had that problem with my blog a while ago (except in both browsers), my problem was that I would have words that were too long or pics in my sidebar that were too big, so I wouldn't have room for them side by side, and the sidebar got pushed down. I don't know if this will help you, this might be something else entirely...

but Firefox is better anyways

hi latour, I will keep fiddling with it, and hopefully blind luck will fix the problem.

i see from you profile that you are an engineer, and from Canada. Cool profession obvioulsy, are you entitles to wear the iron ring, or is that a myth about canadian engineers?

(for those of you thinking this is sexual inuendo, no, my understanding is that canadian engineers literally wear an iron ring on their fingers.)

Jerry Seinfeld would say..
"Not that there's anything wrong with that"... ;)

Well, I'm still a student, so I don't have one (yet). I get it when I graduate, at the Ritual of the Calling of the Engineer, and wear it on the pinky finger of my working hand (my right hand). It is made out of iron to symbolize our obligation to our work (not gold = money), and to remember the collapse of the Quebec bridge caused by poor engineering.

If I tell you any more I would have to kill you lol

The strange world of engineers :-)

It makes more sense after a few beers...

We are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers,
We can, we can, we can, we can, demolish forty beers,
Drink rum, drink run, drink rum, drink rum and come along with us,
For we don't give a damn for any damn one who don't give a damn for us

DesertPeace said...

hmmmmmm.... just what I suspected... there's a full moon tonight.

stroppybird said...

Scary...

AN said...

I'm an engineer.

But we don't get an iron ring in England. Shame.
Nor can I drink 40 beers, well maybe over a week i could.
