It used to be so easy! The blog would just do what I wanted to do. I typed a space and it showed a space, I did not type a space and it did not show a space. Such things. The pictures could be copy-pasted into place, they were enlanged on mouseclick... all is changed now.
I should not moan about it on the blog, but seek help (hope Blerik would still be willing to be my helpdesk), but well, maybe I can do both. The pictures don't seem to be clickable anymore, I have to drag and drop them into place, everytime I import a picture I get loads of unwanted empty lines, but if I want an empty line I get none. People might have noticed the messier lay-out... would the blog have gotten too big? Is it all the various computers I have been working on? Oh, these enigmas, produced by unfathomable technology, among which a woman alone is naught but lost! I mayhaps shall don the imperial dress, and strike a genuine damsel-in-distress pose! May someone lead me away from this quagmire... *faint*
And just to test Blerik's amazing advice I add a picture of the sun setting over Plymouth! I fully trust I can now shroud it in empty lines as much as I want...
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
