A long time ago in an art class far, far away

So my current ISP has decided in their infinite wisdom to discontinue the hosting of personal web pages. For the most part I don't care, but I did have my art portfolio uploaded there with a fancy-schmancy lightbox interface.

What did this mean for me? I'm not going to fight their decision, so it meant several hours yesterday evening messing around with the computer, trying to get the lightbox coding to work with Blogger. And at last it does!

What does it mean for you? A brand new page on With Strings Attached - my art portfolio. There's nothing knitting-related there, but here it is anyway, in its new home, home on the web. It's been years in the making, since long before I learned to knit, I was drawing, sketching, and painting. Enjoy!

Technical note: If any of you are trying to get an album lightbox to work with Blogger,this is what worked for me. I put the Light Box Code from Bloggerplugins.ORG into the site template following their instructions, but please note: the script sources that appear at the end of the original code are outdated and must be replaced. This only affects the script source pages at the end of the code. The original code read as follows: 

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>

I replaced it with this, and it works fine: 

<link href='' media='screen' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>

Happy knitting and coding!
