Three Questions – by Leo Tolstoy

One day it occurred to a certain emperor that if he only knew the answers to three questions, he would never stray in any matter.

What is the best time to do each thing? Who are the most important people to work with? What is the most important thing to do at all times?

The emperor issued a decree throughout his kingdom announcing that whoever could answer the questions would receive a great reward. Many who read the decree made their way to the palace at once, each person with a different answer. Continue reading “Three Questions – by Leo Tolstoy”

Flickr is now enabled.

If I could figure out how to use Flickr smartly, so can you. Flickr is “third party” to snowotherway. Read it’s terms and conditions carefully. You are only invited, not required, to enable an account with flickr, but . . . what fun.

Moving, Graduating, Take your blog with you.

In your dashboard, under ‘Options/Reading’, you need to check that the number of posts under ‘Syndication feeds’ is set to At LEAST the number of posts in your blog, and that the feed is set to ‘Full text’ before saving it as an .xml file.(look for the xml link in browser bar or meta somewhere in your theme header/sidebar/footer)

In your new blog at “wordpress.com” or “edublogs.org” for example simply import the .xml file and you are back in business.

Sadly, once you are no longer a student at St. Jerome’s your blog is gone. (Usually I don’t get around to cleaning things up until the fall, though).

STJ Volleyball Championship Graghics Challenge

Help with the graphics for our Senior Girls ASAA Championship website.

Look at the header images here:

We can do better, I know it.

The images you use to create the header MUST be “public domain” such as those from freefoto.com. I prefer 100% verifiable original artwork. If I am in doubt, your submission will be trashed, so be certain your images are “free”.

I lean towards images incorporating Spartan volleyball players (ask me about FOIP ) or images from the school, surroundings, landmarks around Vermilion. Use your own camera for pics from around town/park/river, I have a scanner so images can be digital or film to start.

Contribute your final images in their multi layer original .psd format AND compressed and flattened in .png format. Final images must load quickly, less than 10kb preferred.

Good luck.
