Well, scavhunt seems to be getting off to an okay start. But if my friends won't play ball who will. I mean what's the story with posting comments but not pictures? You know who you are.

Gave a talk today in class, comparing my own novel to Flying Dutch by Tom Holt. Went poorly, I ran out of things to say and waffled off crap. Hopefully teacher likes crap. Mmmm... crap. The more talks I do the more I'm convinced they are just designed to fill in time and to provide an assessable task. I mean seriously, who gained any useful information? I'd be fucking flabbergasted if anyone there today went out and read a Tom Holt book. Whatever.
Tomorrow's talk (yes, another one tomorrow) seems a little more useful, supposedly training us to sell our film ideas. But seeing as we haven't been taught any more about how to do this it just seems that we're being assessed in semester two on what we learnt in semester one. Lazy teaching? I suppose it could be said that it's to check that our writing (screenplays) is progressing. Anyway, I have a nice colour piccy to put up on the screen, so I'm sure that'll impress the pants off teacher and I'll get an HD++.

Here's the piccy. A mock movie poster type thing. Horribly plagiarised naturally.

I suppose I should work on my synopsis now.

Twas not all in vain, I was looking at Tom Holt books over the weekend but have come to the decision that you should just lend me your copy. Ta very much. Will be expecting it post-haste.

Right. Yes. Well I did have a look, problem is I don't know how to post pictures.

How to post a lovely piccy.
First: find a suitable picture on Google Images or similar.

Second: Record the url (address) of the picture, all the way from the http:// to the .jpg or .gif.

Third: Instead of writing a lovely message you're going to write a little HTML tag. "" Without the outside inverted commas, exchange the URL for the one you found...

Now you can do this in your journal too!

Re: How to post a lovely piccy.
Damn it! The inverted commas did nothing, NOTHING!

Okay: the tag looks like this:

img src="URL"

enclosed in triangular bracket things "<" ">"

URL=address of piccy, eg http://rotton.com/deadguy.jpg

Re: How to post a lovely piccy.
could your instructions *be* more convoluted...? Anyway, I get the idea.
