About

      Hi and welcome! You can call me Zzy if you like, it's kind of a bit like the first part of Xylophone. I joined Gaia in 2008 and I've been on and off ever since. Mostly on in the last couple of years. I think that the thing which keeps me here most is the wonderful community and the fabulous friendships which I've built here. I know a bunch of lovely people from all over the world who I wouldn't have met otherwise.

      Around the site, I'm currently working (very slowly) towards my Angelic Rod Plus upgrade in fishing. I mostly fish in Durem these days. I'm also a level 10 Alchemist, and I can craft things for you if you wish. I used to play a lot of ZOMG, and I will still play if Leas you ask me enough. I'm also substitute fearless leader to a somewhat inactive guild full of fabulous people.

      I love rainbows, lollies, musicals and puns to name a few things. I use caps lock when I get excited about something. I'm reasonably convinced I use Gaia's marketplace in my sleep, because things show up in my inventory I have no recollection of buying.

      Behind the monitor, I'm Australian, and female like my avatar. Unlike my avatar, I do not have transparent white skin.

              So I take it you weren't one of those vendors who got their pass disabled? xD

              How you been, mango? What have you been up to? I haven't been on Gaia much.

              Oh, I haven't ever used Linux before. I've always used Windows. Is Linux good? I tried using a Mac before, but the controls were beyond me, all the little popup icons down at the bottom of the screen were quite distracting and I couldn't find anything I needed. Of course, it was probably because I was too used to Windows; I don't think I could use any other OS without freaking out.

              My parents are pretty much the same way. I thought it was just their generation, but it's not. My father hates modern technology and will hold on to our flip phone plan for eternity, I guarantee you. He despises smartphones and says that people only use them to waste time and make themselves look busy. According to him, there aren't any benefits. And of course we have had the same TV since before I was born. Everyone seems to have a flat screen nowadays. It irks me to watch something on cable and have part of it cut off because they assume that the majority is watching on a longer TV screen.

              I do think Windows 8 took some time getting used to, but I really do like the charms menu. Windows 7 is okay, but the computers at my university take a long time to start up with this OS, so it's kind of annoying. But I do agree about touching the monitor; it really is unnecessary. The tiles look fun, but are not ideal.

              Yes, that is old D: Did you hear about Microsoft ending support for Windows XP and Vista? It might not be safe to continue using them.

              And also, you don't use Internet Explorer, do you? I think they have their worst security issue (the one back in June) fixed, but I think it was pretty scary. I only use Firefox and Chrome if I need more than one browser open at a time, and Firefox is for the basic stuff. Better Gaia stopped updating the Firefox add-on, but they kept at it with Chrome. I like the extension so that I can read ten announcements at once and collect all my daily chances, and also save post formatting :3

              You should always try to use a class before resorting to an element's tag name.

              Personally I thought that using copyrighted images for free were okay if they came directly from the source, like pictures from an anime or even a movie poster. What concerned me was artwork done by individual artists that are quite extraordinary, mostly the fan art. Then again, if the latter artists should be credited for their work and others should refrain from using their materials without permission, the original things coming from the large corporations should be just as respected. It just seemed okay to use their images because they'd want to promote their products, but it's all so mixed that I really hesitate sometimes. (You'll have to excuse the free profiles I posted in my store. I was still trying to understand the rules in regards to image use sweatdrop )

              How weird; Firefox has a flash problem when I use it. Sometimes I use Firefox and Chrome at the same time to check two accounts at once, and I can never check my aquarium on Firefox without it lagging like crazy, or watch a Youtube video without there being some kind of error that prevents it from loading.

              You know you could have just used #about .links instead of #about ul:nth-of-type(1), right?

              There are quite a few things you can do to optimize and clean up your CSS. 3nodding

              That is seriously cool. You must be super precise about positioning elements. I get like that, too, even around one measly pixel sweatdrop But for profiles with a little more flexibility I'm a little less exact. The first commission I did had square panels rotated to look like diamonds, and it was a little bothersome to get them aligned just right with the correct number of degrees in rotation already, so the positioning was just as fun.

              The lax supervision makes me reconsider once in a while, but I would feel really guilty if someone specifically asked for their art not to be redistributed. I was thinking it would be okay for free profiles, but that certainly isn't the case. One person asked me to make them a profile with an anime wallpaper, but she got it from a site that only allowed their designs for personal use. When I asked her for another image, she took the same one and posted it on a different website sweatdrop It was difficult not to seem totally unyielding.

              Yes, Chrome has a tool to inspect elements, but I don't know what it's called. Live editing is quite cool and comes in very handy for people I've just sent profile codes to and need small fixes. I didn't know about design view, though. I wonder if Chrome has that. I was always troubled by the difference in resolution before when I was first coding.

              The eight next to the parenthesis bothered me sometimes, too. It's sill how Gaia hasn't resolved it. I think what most bothers me is how apostrophes in links turn into slash marks or other symbols for no reason. I have no idea how that comes about.
