amused, silly, ha ha only serious

Excerpted from Filespace's new QuickHelp feature:

Why do some files have three red dots in them?

Occasionally someone will upload a file with a really long name--so long that it disrupts the page, shoving everything else around. Filespace deals with this problem by "contracting" file names longer than thirty-five characters; this keeps them short enough that they usually won't cause any problems. When a filename is contracted, some characters from the beginning or middle of the name are replaced with three red dots whenever the filename is displayed; the file still has the long name, but not all of it is shown.

To view the full filename, just hover the mouse pointer over the contracted name. A ToolTip should pop up with the full filename and the number of characters that were removed from it.

To keep this from happening, just use shorter filenames. Honestly, people, why in God's name would you need a 91-character filename?

So nice to be clean again...

Took off the bandages on my toes earlier today, meaning I could finally take a shower. (That's right, I hadn't showered since Wednesday. Damn surgery.) They looked pretty gross, but that's hardly unusual. The doc gave me a pair of big bandages to put on them, which I have on now.

I then went out to get lunch (at Ray's Pizza--best by-the-slice in the city) and pocky. 99 Ranch is still out of chocolate pocky, so I went to Ripoff Central^W^WManga House and got two boxes of chocolate and one of men's. Yum.
