UPDATE: WE JUST MADE A WALKTRHOUGH VIDEO TO GO WITH THIS PAGE cHECK IT OUT HERE:

How do you change the color of your font in myspace?
This is an easy question, but it can get complicated.

Before we actually start, lets pick a color. Keep that number ready.

Now…
When typing text in a comment or in just one field or table, and you only are concerned with that individual field, you can use this code:

<font color=”color_code”> YOUR TEXT HERE </font>

and to change the size also, use this:
<font color=”color_code” face=”font style” size=”number value from 1 to 7″> your text here </font>

If you want to change individual parts of your profile, everything is laid out very well in this guys guide on myspace
http://www.myspace.com/colorguide.

The most basic of what you want to create is:

td, a, body, table,p { color:XXXXX;}

put that in your profile and you will change the color of most of the text.

How do I insert a video into facebook?

11 Comments

Heres a question that has totally been under the radar:
How do I put a video onto facebook?

The book barely mentions this, but it is possible! Heres how you do it:

First things first, you must have the video already hosted by another website. So this means they are basically giving in to what the people want (post videos on their profile), rather than inspiring creativity like myspace might be doing by hosting their own videos. thats fine. I just wanted to point that out. maybe its better this way. its very clean here.

click on Posted Items on the left side
Now, you copy the URL of the video you want to insert into your profile.
paste that link into the Post a Link field on the right.

It will now appear on the Posted Items or Mini-feed section on your profile

These videos actually work well and look great on the site. kudos to facebook for making it simple like this.

also, I hear there are sites that have a button to “share on facebook” where you can share straight from their site. they use the word “partner” in the description, so that makes it sound boring. But look out for that.

You can press the share button to send the video to your friends too

also, they made a bookmarklet function. you install it by dragging the icon to your bar ( which is pretty cool actually ). I haven’t done it because I dont want any more crap on my machine. but this is just another option with this share function.

Ismail Ax, Virginia Tech, non-footnotes, overman, riddles

1 Comment

I just spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out what Ismail Ax means. What was supposed to be written on the killers arm in the VT shootings. This is starting to become ridiculous though.

Just another example of someone so self-involved, so self-righteous, they think what they are doing is so profound. They want to change the entire world. This reminds me of the movie Seven, or other movies with the genius psychokiller. This kid was obviously (in American Idol’s words) affected.
Did you see his picture of him with the hammer??? lame. get real.

Does he think this is really revenge? This is a footnote. barely. . you can’t change people by killing them. Theres some quote that says “Its better to live for a cause than to die for one.”

When you are in High School and even college, and a lot of times after that too, there are these immature people – who have these grandiose ideas. Is this megalomania? These people think everything they do has meaning and should be studied for years to come, because they were at a level above everyone. heres the question: can you even name the columbine killers? dylan was one I think. clebold? im not even going to look it up. nor link to it. No person below 25 will be profound. At least Kurt Cobain and the rest were 28. Dean, Jimi, whoever, they were all talented or good looking but none knew anything about life. dying early does not prove anything. killing doesnt either – look at the US govt. Nietszche was the closest thing we’ve had to the overman, and he did not kill anyone for it, he went mad because he saw a horse being flogged. consider his moustache.

and now this ismail ax is a web riddle?? How ridiculous I am wasting my time on this kids game? Killers like this aren’t meant to be studied. This is a feigned psychopath. It seems that he idolized what we see in movies and computer games as the evil mastermind killer. (I am in no way blaming them for this, FOX news)

So, I know its a big mystery, and its fun to solve puzzles and all… but do we really have to waste time with this crap? Something one person thought was so clever? At most lets be constructive, but at the least, just figure out the worlds most impossible quiz game!

How do I make my background a picture or image in myspace?

37 Comments

To put in an image as your background picture,
copy and paste this:

<style>
body {
background-image:url(http://XXXXXXXX);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
}
</style>

Where the XXXXXX is the location of the image you want to make your background. if you need help figuring out what that is, I have that on one of my other myspace posts.

If you want the picture to repeat on the page, insert this:
<style>
body {
background-image:url(http://XXXXXXXX);
}
</style>

If you want the background image fixed in place when you scroll down, use this:
<style>
body {
background-image:url(http://XXXXXXXX);
background-attachment:fixed;
}
</style>

Digital and Analog Friends

Leave a comment

I am always looking for ways to put real life situations in to classifications.

I propose we group our friends in two ways: digital and analog.

Digital friends meaning the people where we can pick up with at any period of time. Our history doesnt make us friends, its the connection that does. Never a ‘why havent you called??’ and no animosity because of it. My crazy schedule (and moodiness) has basically made all my friends digital.

Analog friends can be temporal. They might have to be. These people are generally needy. They need a reminder every few days that, yes, you are still with them. These may also people who are friends with you because of your daily schedule. Its not that they need the consistency, its the consistency that creates the friendship. Your college roommate might be this type. Your girlfriend or boyfriend may very well be this type. Your coworkers are probably this type.

Lets bring it into the lexicon. Digital and Analog friends.

Where do I paste code into myspace?

15 Comments

I want to pimp my myspace. I got the code need to put in.
So, where do I paste the code into my profile??

Essential question – thanks Rach

If you are putting a video into your profile, you put the video code in whichever box you want it to be shown.

As for layout changes and css code, you should put it inside the ABOUT ME section. If you want to add code to code you already put in, you should insert it somewhere inside the style tags – to be more precise, put it right before the line which has the “/style” in it. That basically says that this is the end to your formatting code.

You can basically put the code wherever though. Just try it. and Send your questions!

I want to change the size of the icons for my top friends on myspace. How do I do this?
How do I make my top friends pictures bigger or smaller?

Add this code to your profile.

td.text td.text a img {width:150px !important;}

Experiment with the number to find your pleasure. I believe 100 is standard.
