I actually went to see if Dec 11 and 18 had different versions of the "oh no" page. Duh.

... I changed the image. I guess it's okay for me to do that.... I have this odd feeling that once it's out there in the ether, I'm not really supposed to tamper with it. It's yours; sure you can tamper with it. It's lovely now, thanks. :bravo: I really like the Christmas Carol one (Dec 3). :whee:

Re: llizard's advent calendar, 2004

Hooray indeed. They're lovely this year. :bravo: :bravo: I especially like the moon-scene (Nov 29) and the excellent bells in the Dec 30. I was surprised by the score for "O Come O Come Emmanuel" on Dec 2. I've always imagined the first note as a pick-up O | Come O Come E | Ma a an u | E e...

I found it impossible not to cheet, and I looked at the picture before it scattered. "I can only say that I have no trouble keeping my eyes off the screen", said blm smugly. :lalala: There was clearly not enough working space either. How do they expect me to properly sort my pieces in suc...

Another excellent thing is the "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" :bravo:. It starts out with "Getting Started" and "Latest Headlines" but you can add more things. Llizard, you will be pleased and proud to know that your forum's bookmark is prominently displayed there. :lalala:

... The right click "Open Link in New Tab" is enough for me to dump IE. I didn't know about that feature. Very cool. And CTRL-PAGEUP and CTRL-PAGEDOWN to go between tabs. Even CTRL-1 CTRL-2 etc to go to a specific tab. I guess I should read up a bit more on Firefox to see what else I'm mi...
