For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture this journal is friends only.

I am just your average freak tv junkie/fangirl but I'm not great on writing exiting fandomy stuff. I post a lot about my life, mostly about uni, my dog, friends and family, etc. which is kinda boring I guess.

I'm always open to new friends but I don't add back automatically.

A fair warning though, I suck with comments.. and it can take ages for me to reply.

If you still want to add me go ahead ;) Just comment to say hi, tell me how you've found me and maybe why you've added me. I'll check you out and decide about adding you back.

Nice layout.

I had a decent one until LJ decided to mysteriously delete all my overrides. You seem somewhat intelligent person, compared with most of the ridiculous people I see on this cursed network of blogs. We even share a few common intests it seems. Add me if you wish. I have a few stupid quizzes in my entries that I never bothered to hide but they're small enough that they shouldn't interfer with your layout that badly. I have no intention of adding anymore in the forseeable future.

added you back =)

I don't mind quizzes per se.. they just shouldn't take up 90% of all the posts ;P So you're safe.

Thanks about the layout.. I'm just currently way to obsessed with Stargate and I felt like some nice soothing colors. Sucks about those deleted overrides. LJ can be a bitch sometimes.

Sure does.

I can't remember half the override codes if there's any way you could help me out with a few good ones I would really appreciate it.
Stargate is an awesome series, have you seen season 8 yet? I heard O'Neill get's promoted to General.

Well I mostly work with a lot of tutorials and trial and error.. and I've been using opal for too long to remember overrides in other styles.. you could check out http://www.livejournal.com/community/s2styles/ and http://www.livejournal.com/community/s2howto/ for help though.

As for SG1 yeah I used to watch it back when it first aired here in Germany but someday just stopped. Then I in saw a special about Atlantis and SG1 that Claudia Black from Farscape (Aeryn Sun) would be in one of the season 8 episodes, the 12th I think, Prometheus Unbound, and just had to download it. This was a few weeks ago. Since then I downloaded all seasons and watched all episodes. Luckily I'm on holidays from university right now. Otherwise studies would sure have suffered.
Oh and yes it's Brigadier General Jack O'Neill now ;) Sadly he won't be in more than two episodes of season 9.

Not a big fan of S2. :- \

I've always used S1, done everything manually in CSS. You can do more that way, I think. Dunno, I've never really used S2. It really sucks though, I lost a lot of good scripts it took me a few years to compile.

I saw that (or maybe another) special about Atlantis, it looks pretty cool. It sucks that by the time they air shows here in Germany they're already out for DVD release.

That sucks if they're going to cut Richard Dean Anderson from most of season 9. He kind of made the show what it is. Is he being removed from the series or is it just that season? I watched this documentary interview where he was being asked questions about the show and he just pretended not to hear them and was like "I don't remember half the shit in this show" and he went on to name a couple alien races, "that's about all I remember, I just play out the script". I thought that was mildly amusing, with him being the show's lead actor and all.

He's out for good.. the two episodes he'll be in will most likely be the first two explaining why he's leaving the SGC or whatever they have planned as a reason. I agree he's the heart of the show, I will sure miss him. But since Daniel is still around I'm quite alright with it. Plus RDA continues to be one of the executive producers.

Atlantis really is pretty cool, mostly because the characters are just great, especially snarky McKay who already appeared in SG1 several times.

As for S2 I thought the same when it first came out, I used to hard code everything in S1 too.. but when I started checking it out I realized that there really is a lot you can do with S2 and by now I think I was crazy ever wanting to not use this. I just takes a while to get used to how it works, since it's more like programming than HTML and CSS. Just check it out some time.

I'll have to take your advise.

personal question: I found your site when I was searching for users in Mainz, Germany. I was suprised to find your page which is half-decent looking. Where are you originally from? (no worries, I'm not an online-stalker or nothing, just curious)

Hehe I check out the Mainz people every now and then too and mostly just back away slowly.. o.O

So who tells me it's the truth when you're saying you're not an online-stalker? ;P Just kidding.
I live in Mainz, have for most of my life actually, but my parents are from Chile, with roots from all over Europe.

I bet you speak pretty good German.

I've been in Germany for over a year and haven't really picked up much of the language at all. Of course, I am the world's greatest procrastinator.

Ahh I'm stupid. I said I'd added you back but forgot to actually do it. Now I've really added you back!

As for my German, well since my parents moved to Germany when I was a little over 2 years old, German is my native language. I went to kindergarden and school here and am now at university. I still speak Spanish but it's a bit rusty for lack of use. My English is way better, it should, I'm studying and using it all the time after all. Then there's 4 years of French I had in school, I only remember some of it though.

Sorry to bother you...

Hi, I use the same syle you do, and I really hate to do this, and it was my last option... but I was wondering what code you used to change the margin at the top of your journal to make room for a banner type graphic. I got it to work on my old style but the code is different. Im really sorry it this post is a bother to you, I just thought it couldnt hurt to ask.

I would really appreciate it if I could get just a little help, no where else has been able to help me so far, and I see you have a large top margin.

Once again I am sorry to bother you

hey, don't worry it took me a while and a friend to tell me where to look too... =)

Just go to your layout layer and scroll down until you find:

# -----------------------------------
# -----------------------------------

It's after about a third, then scroll further down at some point you find this:

body{ in this just change the margin-top: to the pixels you need..

I hope this was of some help.

And just out of curiosity, how'd you find me?

Thank you sooo much! I really appreciate it!

I saw a comment that you left on the journal of the person who created this style. I was there to see if she could help me but she couldnt so I decided to see if anyone that was using the style had figured it out... and you were the first one I checked. I hope that was ok, like I said I didnt mean to be a bother.

But thanks again so much!

I was asking for new friend recs the other day and [livejournal.com profile] miriam mentioned you. Surprisingly, we have some things in common. Friends?

Friends. =)

Just as a fair warning, currently I am a tad lazy about writing entries.. and hardly ever anything about fandom. But that might be object to change once spring break starts.

Oh and your name always has me start singing song from Guns'n'Roses :P
