Puppet Angel

putting stuff out on teh IntarWeb

mhuot, you might need to help me with this one...
I'm wondering how to put files out there on the internet. Not a web page, but just some files. Like possibly some mp3 files. I've had other friends who've put stuff out there and I can just right-click and do a save as, but I don't know how.
I have Dreamweaver which I used for my class a year or so ago, but I was never all that comfortable with the uploading process. I can't seem to get anything to work now, but I don't know if it's just me, or if it's the server. When I hit the test button it says it's connecting, and when I go look at the sites I did for school they are still there. But I can't seem to figure out how to get a new folder up there and put stuff in it...
I also tried using Fetch and it seemed like it should work, but then I type in the address of where I should have stuff and I can't find it.

My LJ friends are funny & stuff

Things I've found on my flist lately. Anonymous, as always. Comment if you want to take credit for them (as long as you're the one who said it, of course)

Oscar nominations are out:
~~ "but ... but ... A Knight's Tale! 10 Things I Hate About You! That guy has an Oscar nomination! I swear I'm not knocking Heath Ledger at all, because his performance in Brokeback was amazing and lovely and I want it to win SO BAD, but it just seems amusing when you just think of it as "Heath Ledger has an Oscar nomination." Which just, you know, seems weird."

Talking about a painter's weird celebrity paintings:
~~ "It reminds me of Xxxxx's recent forays into the Cult of Hasselhoff."

What can I say about this one?? 0_o
~~ "Mixed orange juice and Coca-Cola does look pretty bad, I guess. But I love the taste"

Doesn't everyone have a relative like this?
~~ "Well, I'll be damned.
My white trash cousin just sent me a forwarded, chain-letter God spam. It said I needed to forward it to four more people to bless them as God was getting ready to bless me.
I deleted it. I pretty sure God won't mind."

And some of the replies to the post were funny too:
~~ "God called. He said he was revoking your blessing because you're a "spoiled little godless punk-ass brat". I thought it was really weird to hear God speak like that until I also heard him say "Dude, have you heard the new Metallica CD? I did that!".
I'm taking the fucker off speed dial."

~~ "While God moves in mysterious ways, I don't think those ways include animated .gifs and Jesus clip art."

I could probably do a whole post just of stoney321's journal:
Her best friend just visited:
~~ "She brings happiness and energy, and if I could murder her, grind her into a liquid and put her in a spray bottle to spritz her about the house, I wouldn't, because I think she would stain the walls. Not that murder is bad, mind you, and trust me when I say that she appreciates it wouldn't be to KILL her, but...
I just think she'd stain. Definitely clog up the sprayer nozzle."

Her boy just turned 10 years old:
~~ "I *can* leave the boy! I leave him for days and days at a time. I mean, what the hell are microwaves for? :D"

And you learn stuff from her and knowledge is power:
~~ "SNUFF FILMS. I like that my journal is educational. Sure, it's all bad stuff, but that is NOT THE POINT. The point is you are LEARNING."

Here is someone trying to do their homework and Google is not cooperating:
~~ "I image-googled 'lioness'. The first hit is a naked chick.. then there's a furry... and some miniatures.
All I want is a picture of a lioness about to take down a gazelle, or something. Apparently too much to ask for."

And last, but not least, we've got part of a Con report from Orlando. The author's sister has a bit of a thing for Alan Tudyk, and they were walking behind him at the end of the day:
~~ "she actually walked past the door to keep following him, but scott got her by the arm and pulled her out. she was like, 'but... but... alan tudyk!' and scott was like, 'he's not going to run away with you!' and sara said, 'you can't know that...'"
Fairy Spike

"Zack's work consists of removing flesh from corpses..."

"Zack's work consists of removing flesh from corpses. Hodgins dissects bugs that have been eating people's eyeballs."

Ended up not working today. At 9:30 this morning they said the system wouldn't be up until 2:00, so I should just come in at 1:30. I called at 1:00 and they said it probably wouldn't be up so I should wait a little while. At 1:15 they called and said I didn't need to come in and to just come in at my regular time tomorrow.

I'm guessing this means the system upgrade didn't go well...

I did manage to get some stuff accomplished though. I stopped at the bank with some stuff that needed depositing and also got Xander's 1st birthday saving's bond ordered.
I went to the post office too and got stamps for the Christmas Groundhog's Day cards, and got the package going to Iceland mailed off.

Guns don't kill people, Chuck Norris kills people...

raven_arani, here are those Chuck Norris facts we were talking about.

Top Ten Chuck Norris Facts

1. Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried. Ever.

2. Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.

3. Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

4. The chief export of Chuck Norris is pain.

5. If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death.

6. Chuck Norris has counted to infinity. Twice.

7. Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting implies
the probability of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.

8. Chuck Norris' blood type is AK+. Ass-Kicking Positive. It is compatible only with heavy construction equipment, tanks, and fighter jets.

9. Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.

10. In fine print on the last page of the Guinness Book of World Records it notes that all world records are held by Chuck Norris, and those listed in the book are simply the closest anyone else has ever gotten.

11. There is no chin behind Chuck Norris' beard. There is only another fist.
