Let It Snow!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,*
But the fire is so delightful,*
And since I've no place to go,*,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.*.

(If this blog post seems more boring than usual, then perhaps you haven't yet clued into the * phenomenon*. Now is your chance to get in on the fun. Whenever you see a "*" throughout one of my posts (and sometimes comments too), hover your mouse over it and you will get the additional text. Each browser has its own peculiarities in displaying these. IE disappears the tool tip quickly. Firefox cuts long sentences short*. (To view the whole thing, right click and select "Properties".) There have been reports of Mac browsers not able to display them at all, although I haven't been able to reproduce that problem yet. If you are having trouble viewing these little gems, drop me a line with the the browser you are using and the operating system (e.g. OSX 10.4), and we'll see if we can get it all worked out. Hopefully in the near future, I will write a custom rollover function that will be a little more cross-browser compatible.)

Wow, snow! I think I will enjoy the delightful surpises that come with living in an area with real weather. Next year.... I remember the WWU campus being quite beautiful in the snow...sidenote, the walkway between the Chem and Biology building gets snowy (and it's enclosed) That was fun to walk through.

Okay, for everyone who is having trouble with the *s, I've added a fix for you. Not only will it help with mac users who seem to be having trouble getting the *s, but also for IE users who don't have time to read the whole note and for firefox users who don't want to be bothered with right clicking, etc. etc.

Just click on any * throughout the page and the note will come up in an alert pop-up. Hope this helps! If you are still having trouble, please let me know.

To clarify, click on any * which is being used as an additional info link and receive the message in a pop up alert*.

Firefox-Horge says "Cool"! Long live Wren. I didn't like the right-click technique, but I was always willing to do it to see what was in store for us. Thanks Wrenjamin!
