I'm trying a little experiment this morning, so bear with me. Here's Brian Setzer again, just because I like him, and because I wanted to try another format for writing, so I can wrap text around pictures. I've noticed that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to wrap text when adding an entry in AOL, and that's always bugged me.
I tried doing this in Microsoft Word, and I found it cumbersome and difficult to navigate. (I don't use Word a lot, though, so there are probably easier ways to do it.) I'm not sure where I read about Google Docs (docs.google.com), but I thought I'd give it a try. It seems to be fairly easy to navigate, and I've made it this far, so that's good! It's an interesting program, too. It's still in Beta, but basically, you can create and edit documents, but also share them with others, so they can go in and edit them as well. I can see how that would be invaluable for collaborating on papers or presentations. It autosaves, too. Neato!
So I'm going to write a bit here, then try copying it and pasting it into my journal.
Again, nothing to do with Brian Setzer. Although since I wrote about him the other day, I've been on a major Brian kick. I loaded up several CD's onto the MP3 player, and I've been playing him at work for the past couple of days. Good stuff, man!
And speaking of music (okay, that was my first transition from writing to the right of the pic to underneath, and it worked perfectly), Shane went to Chicago the other night with his friend Steve to see the band X. They were a punk/New Wave band from the '80's that we really liked a lot, and Shane said they sounded great. One of our favorite albums from that time was X's "Under the Big Black Sun."
Okay, here we are trying a right-aligned picture, and I'm wrapping the text left. It's working, it's really working!
Here is Shane's review of the show:
