Anyway. Mainly the difference I notice between these four posts in four browsers is the extra space with the carriage return. I don't know why one browser would default an extra line in there. I thought maybe certain browsers also screw around with the display font but that doesn't seem to be the case.
I have no interest in trying this out in Opera. I hate Opera almost as much as IE. Opera is no option at all, unless you're striving for inconvenience. Similarly, there's no point trying this out in Netscape or Magellan.
Now that that's done, on with the blog.
I'm well into Wolfe's Soldier of Sidon. I'm enjoying it greatly, of course. I'm going to be very upset when this genius is no longer producing material in this world. It will be a tremendous loss that most people are too small-minded to appreciate. The Bachelor can last for years and 90210 can make a comeback, and real vision withers and dies on the vine, neglected.
I'm glad I took the time to write to him. I prize his response and show off his autographed book to anyone who cares. I have a picture of him and Neil Gaiman for my wallpaper (took a small photo and enlarged it through an amazingly faithful Web-based graphic scaling program I can't seem to find anymore, but it's better than Photoshop and free) to stare at me when I logon to goof around. Their gaze truly shames me. Gaiman himself told me to learn a trade if I wasn't compelled to write all the time, because "writers write." If I'm not writing, I'm not a writer, and I'm ashamed of what these last five months have proven about me.
But I'm not a failure in all things. I worked out for half an hour with Wii Fit and then set DDR to burn 50 calories. I had a reasonable breakfast and am now snacking on whey protein in rice milk and a banana.
But the rest of the day must be spent writing.
