Layout Adjustments, Like Anyone Cares

This is just a test post mostly... My rants tend to ramble on for a good portion of screen real estate, and I kinda missed the "here's the intro, click the link to read the full story" kinda thing we had going at NotAddicted. I've dug around and found a hack that allows me to split stories in half, and have a 'teaser' + 'read more...' thing going on. I'm a lazy web surfer myself, and usually skip visiting sites I like for a few days at a time, and when I go back it's good to be able to 'catch up' and see what I've missed. I've adjusted the front page layout to use this new system, and show my ten most recent... uhh... whatevers (ramblings? articles? bouts of pissing and moaning?). And yes, that's the image that showed up on the first page of google images for "teaser". : /

Blah blah blah, this is body text! Look at me, I'm an MMO story! Yadda yadda yadda, nerf ret pallies, blah blah blah, mutilate with no positional requirement is haxx, do dee doo de doo, QQ about the mail system lol blizz sux, and apparently I've stopped playing warhammer...?

So yeah. This is just a demo to poke under the hood and see how bad it broke all of my stuff. Real article coming later; I apparently have been selected to judge a junior high school english speech contest today.

blehhh...

The cut posts seem to be working fine... aside from opening in a new window.

I really have to get the plugin for Wordpress.

Why'd you stop playing Warhammer?

I'm only interested because I did too...

Now that you stopped playing WAR, can we expect an article with final impressions on the game? Sort of like your honeymoon article of AoC.

I used to do that on my blog, then I just got super-lazy, figuring if I made it as easy as possible for myself, I'd actually post once in a while instead of putting it off. Now that I'm on a updated weekdays format for a few weeks straight, maybe I'll go back to it.

I am so ripping your style, etc etc, insert other slang here.

Ow! I got a crick in my neck from leaning over to check out the picture of the girlie. Who is she? Where can we see more of her? Is that a TV Show, or is she one of those CosPlay babes?
