Teacher who looks like Steffy

We don't want to be complacent about learning moments.  Al has progressed on the spelling front (he knows how to spell a certain body part), his record is exemplary and now it is time to fully acknowledge his last bit of magic.  Al please bask in this award.  You are awarded this wonderful 'thing':





AND one cannot ignore uni, uni, unicode--that's it!  Jaclyn you are awarded this award suitable for framing:

    A few words on post cuteness if I may be forgiven a bit of snobbery.

  How does the post look as presented to the reader and how does it look as the width of the browser window changes? I happen to be using a 32", 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) monitor driven by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 because my RealLife™, cataract corrected eyes need the big picture. A post looks different on that display than it does on my phone and on my 13" laptop. But the point I'm making is that a post is also in relationship to what the website software here does with it. Line breaks using the Enter or Return key between paragraphs helps your readers too.

  Tiny things really. In this current case here at Elliquiy, a space before the first line of a post and after the last line does wonders. My next post will hopefully show what it looks like without those. Note how the post bumps up against the line at the top and the Last Edit text at the bottom. Yugly with a capital Yuge!

  And remember too that it looks different to you because of the Modify icons which your readers don't see!

  Be well and post cutely!

Witch 1:  The pretty one might have something there, some thought to appearance. 
Maybe if we had given some thought to our appearance, we’d not be all bent over and haggard.

Witch 2:  But who knew about the dangers of the sun?
Miami was way different back then.  It was oil up and tan. 
Not sun block and skin care.  Is it too late?

Witch 3:   It’s never too late!  Maybe a spell.

    A tiny lesson I learned when working on my signature the other day: No more than five images allowed in a signature. And recall please that signature images must all be uploaded to the Elluiki.

  Incidentally, my signature has expanded from three parts – floated left part, floated right part, centered part – into four parts. I build it as a 1 row ✕ 7 column table, centered. Four of the cells contain the images and text I want and the cells between each of those are em spaces to widen the cells to separate the cells with images. I'd like to keep the whole thing to less than 800 pixels wide to accommodate small screens but it's now about 900 pixels wide because I want to keep the two awards from here in there for the time being. Here's the code.

CELEBRATION TIME – BRAVO COURTNEY !


I’ve been watching the Spell Book that Courtney constructed and it’s gotten over 300 views ! 
Magnifico!  Bravo Courtney ! 

(There’s a candle lit each time there’s a view—cool, huh?) 

AND the Book is now a ‘sticky’ which denotes some view of it being helpful by the landlords.

PLUS, everyone has made great contributions for things to reach this level.  Thanks contributors (and all new friends).

Greetings, magi!
I come bearing gifts.

Today I offer you... a pixel!

And not just any pixel, but a transparent one, placed on Elliwiki ages ago for my own nefarious purposes but now shared with you.
Here it is: https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/4/4d/AlTeregoSeparator.png

Now, I know what you're thinking.  "What use is a single pixel," you wonder, "what would I do with it?"

Well, the interesting thing about this pixel, is that it is infinitely stretchable to any side, and as such can be used as vertical or horizontal padding between elements.

Here are some examples:




Code: [Select]
[b]OO
O[img height=1 width=2]https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/4/4d/AlTeregoSeparator.png[/img]O

I find that it works quite well when placed inside table cells:

Code: [Select]

  I like that, Al! I've used similar techniques myself. They work even better when one can control both the height and width of the scaled image. I haven't experimented here with what happens to an image where one specifies both a height and width. One normally doesn't want to distort an image but for the purposes here, it's certainly appropriate. Maybe for another day.

  THere's one caveat on Al's technique for controlling spacing. In Signatures, Elliquiy imposes a 5 image limit. And each time Al's Pixel™ is used in a signature counts as one image. I suggest using em-space ‘ ’ and en-space ‘ ’ to do that. Changing the font size modifies their width even more.

Should work.  Let's try...

Code: [Select]
[table][tr]
[td][center][img height=200 width=75 padding=10]http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/55a8/embgyje91cc7mehzg.jpg[/img]

[td][center][img height=200 width=150 padding=10]http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/55a8/embgyje91cc7mehzg.jpg[/img]
width=200[/center][/td]
[td][center][img height=200 width=300 padding=10]http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/55a8/embgyje91cc7mehzg.jpg[/img]
width=300[/center][/td]
[/tr][/table]


width=75

width=200

width=300

My my Jaclyn, you should really start watching your diet...

Yup, that's why I switched to using spaces in my signature.

“What do you mean he meant no disrespect Steffy?  That comment was sooooo deserving of discipline!  I think it’s definitely one of those subtle things.  Looks like it’s not disrespectful, but . . . you know?  Maybe if I just sort of snapped the whip a couple of times.  Try that?  No?  Why not?  Okay.  But even if it’s not disrespectful whatever that means, I’ll keep a watch.  You are just too, too easy going!   I don’t think it should even matter that you didn’t think it was disrespectful.  I mean one shouldn’t spare the whip, right?”
