One step ahead of the Cold

I'll say this for headcolds. They'll send you to bed early, but if you are lucky, you'll wake up and feel a little better - at a silly hour of the morning, whereupon you will at once become productive!
So I've got the basics of the site up and running now.
4ormat's hosting is working out alright (subdomain and I, we are sorted - the pictures will be loaded up in better resolution in due course), and I've figured out that for the background image of this blog to show as a clean white, rather than the dulled image there previously, I needed to upload the background image as a .png file, not a .jpg (which Blogger seemed to delight in shading to a duller colour every time). Hopefully someone else searching for the solution will find this useful... someday! No idea why it worked really... but I suspect it's something to do with compression formats.

Blimey, but making a website these days.. all you people with your tablets and smartphones... *mutter*  - The one thing I won't be adding is facebook links. I don't like facebook, I find the targeted advertising repulsive, and everything's a bit cluttered.
(Clutter, I do not like. Just don't look at my living environment. I don't like it there, either, but the imaginaries are useless at cleaning up behind them...)
I may possibly indulge in tumblr. We'll see.

Now to check the emails, contemplate porridge, and see if I am required to wield ink today!
