notes from a meeting - detail

Four hour meetings make this week's strip oh what fun fun fun. It has not plot or reason, and nor do I.

In other news, I am extremely unamused by livejournal's supposed "improvements" to the gallery system. Very few of the actual issues seem to have been solved, and a whole bunch of irrelevant and inexplicable extras seem to have been added. Top of the unpops: compulsory use of  the "rich text system".

I appreciate that the gallery system was developed to fend off all of the people whining that they couldn't post pictures to their journals, but this seems to have lead to a mistaken belief that the only people using it are code-illiterate morons. In fact, to get anything even marginally aesthetic you HAVE to dick with the code (and now, in order to simply do things like make the links work you have to dick with the code -- via a horrible always-on-top source code window, gak gak gak).

I don't like rich text. Please let me out of here.

I was bitching to one of my friends about it the other day, but they did not seem to understand.

More often than not, I do what I can in rich text, copy the source code, cancel the entry and start again by pasting in the source code, then fixing what I can.
