technical issues

Post #686 • December 15, 2005, 3:48 PM • 4 Comments

Internet has been a little spotty here at Stock 20 lately so apologies for unreturned e-mails and the like. Not much news today, but I've been spending time chatting with some of the other Stock 20 artists and some fascinating stuff has come up. Soon I'll talk about their work.

Pictures. You want pictures. And I want to put up pictures. Well, we're going to get some, but, um, I have to go through my luggage one more time, but it looks like I left my camera charger at home. Until this is resolved somehow, Mr. Camera is going to have to be used very sparingly.

Reports indicate that the Chinese characters from yesterday's post are not appearing in some browsers. I don't know the details on this, but it's likely that if this is happening to you, it's because you haven't installed Chinese onto your operating system or browser. (rolls eyes) Get with the times, folks. More people speak Chinese than any other language on earth. (I kid. I kid. I can remember choosing to activate Asian character sets when I installed Tiger on my last box, so it has to do with that, or something.)

Technical issue #4: my attempts at Chinese. Ugh. Sort of like being illiterate, speech impaired, and amnesiac, all at the same time.

Is this what you need, Franklin? Maybe someone stateside can order it and ship it to you (i was just about to volunteer when i remembered that i'm leaving the country myself in two days).

For a second I thought maybe it's a browser thing, but nope. I don't remember installing the character set, but I must have done so at some point, because the characters work, but I remember them not working at some point in the past... hey look, i have Japanese, too!
