DUCF: Hey Campus Alive =) Just wondering how do you guys add in the header [the fish] and make it fit the blog on top [html stuff] Doesn’t seem to work for me. Please advise and help =) Joel here btw xD

Answer:
I’ve looked at your blog and found out that you have changed your html coding a bit. You tried to enlarge the whole outer wrap size and a lot of other things.

Well, the solution that I’ve posted below is for the original “rounders 4 template”. If you want to follow it, then readjust back all your resolutions to the normal one.

If you insist in enlarging your blog wrap dimension, I recommend this site to you. You don’t need to include the part where it tells you to add a new side bar. You can basically use the rest of the tutorial there.

If you however feel that you will prefer to just keep to the original dimension, here’s the edit.

Find

#outer-wrapper {
width:740px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:$startSide;
font: $bodyFont;
}

Change

#outer-wrapper {
width:730px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:$startSide;
font: $bodyFont;

}

Find

#header-wrapper {
background: #476 url(“http://www.blogblog.com/rounders4/corners_cap_top.gif”) no-repeat $startSide top;
margin-top:22px;
margin-$endSide:0;
margin-bottom:0;
margin-$startSide:0;
padding-top:8px;
padding-$endSide:0;
padding-bottom:0;
padding-$startSide:0;
color:$titleTextColor;
}
#header-inner {
background:url(“http://www.blogblog.com/rounders4/bg_hdr_bot.jpg”) no-repeat $startSide bottom;
padding:0 15px 8px;
}
#header h1 {
margin:0;
padding:10px 30px 5px;
line-height:1.2em;
font: $pageTitleFont;
}

Change

#header-wrapper {
background: #476 url(“http://www.blogblog.com/rounders4/corners_cap_top.gif”) repeat-x repeat-y; $startSide top;
margin-top:22px;
margin-$endSide:0;
margin-bottom:0;
margin-$startSide:0;
padding-top:8px;
padding-$endSide:0;
padding-bottom:0;
padding-$startSide:0;
color:$titleTextColor;
}
#header-inner {
background:url(“http://www.blogblog.com/rounders4/bg_hdr_bot.jpg”) repeat-x repeat-y; $startSide bottom;
padding:0 0px 0px;
}

The result that you will get is something like this:

Chain Email: Do You Believe In It?

Filed under: Question,Sharing — campusalive @ 4:20 pm
Technology is inevitable. You will all agree with me.

Emails and sms become a big part of our daily life. I can testify to that ( having just checked all 4 email accounts for about the 16th time with Gmail topping the list with 10 times). One thing that caught my interest just right now is the issue of forwarded emails.

Forwarded emails get especially annoying when it is stupid. For example, I had been cursed to have bad luck for 8 years, asked to forward the email to all the people in my contact list or suffer from something, and so on. I think back then, before I moved to Gmail, I had more forwarded message than I have right now. Also for those forwarded emails that ask you to send it back to the sender, does it even matter? If I send XYZ back to John Doe, John Doe will have to send it back to me again. And then, I’ll have to send it back to John again. When will it end?

I got sidetracked a bit there. >.< Well, let's go back to technology issue for now.

With technology, even Christianity advances. Nowadays, we see sms-chain link asking people to pray for item A, item B and so on. Not only that, we constantly receive encouraging forwarded emails containing inspiring stories (sometimes not-so inspiring) and other times, we are asked to forward email A, email B to everyone in our lists to help fund some insane operations.

Question: How much is it is true? How much of the forwarded email thing is true? Does Gmail pay 5cents for every forwarded email? Does AT&T care for a single mother in Malawi who needs money for her son’s operation? How would you respond to those emails? How would you respond to those sms-es?

Do you pray for those prayer request sent through emails and sms? How much do you believe that those requests are actually true? More importantly, does it matter if they are false? What about forwarding emails to help Jane Doe with her operation? Do you actually do it? Do you believe in what you did or did you do it for fun?

I’m curious to know the people’s respond on this topic. Share with me your thoughts.
