War has come

Thu Mar 26, 2015, 5:28 AM

Hi all .. been six months ..

We are alive .. still .. it's worse every day .. many are already dead.

In the big cities .. we have the dangers of missles of the air forces and the bombings down here .. however the real fighting is at certain areas around the borders and some cities ..

No electricity at all .. no fuel, gas,  etc .. you can find some at the black market but at very very high prices .. I can't describe the situation very well .. it's just .. hell ..

I am not complaining .. actually .. I'm way past that point .. I'm just glad we have some solar energy and some money to stay nearly as connected to the world as possible, above all .. I'm just grateful that my family is o.k.  ...

Apparently my activity is almost zero .. yet I can log in to see some art from time to time ..

Needless to say .. thank you all for those kind hearted messages and notes that asked about me .. I read them and want to cry .. yet my eyes are already very dry .. hehe .. been crying for six months for now .. thnx .. pray for us ..


I'm speechless .. never expected things to develop like this  ..

All of my country's problems were internal and previous wars were between the locals ..

Now a group of other countries are attacking certain areas in my country using air forces ..

I don't care who is in the right or the wrong .. It's just .. insane .. 


Commissions and activities are closed till ... who knows when!

Our contest is finally out

The Special Ones. Once upon a time, there was a kingdom. In that kingdom were happy town folk, who were prosperous, friendly people. Not all were rich, but they had plenty of money to have a huge dinner at the table every single night. Their queen was a special one. No one knows her name, or how she came to be, but she had special powers. She could grow wings and fly. She also had a magical power. Now this was not your ordinary, "Abracadabra" spell you see the magicians doing on the streets to entertain the folk. No nothing like that. This power, was much different.
 We cannot start our story there though. We shall start it when the queen was discovered. When she was known as the "angel". This was before the humans had any shelter, or a reliable food and water source. Everyday, they'd search for SOMETHING. But nothing would be, or could not be found. Every night, a figure could be seen in the remaining sun rays of the sunset. A winged woman. She would drop these little specs of light. Wheneve

Stealing my codes .. Solved

Thu Sep 26, 2013, 11:01 PM

Usually when other deviants are interested in my CSS codes .. They request a permission to use them for their own journals and I always agree under the condition of mentioning my CSS credits!

However, I have faced some CSS credit thefts .. Maybe four or five cases till now .. The last one didn't resolve by merely discussing the situation!

I saw that deviant using my codes from this skin

Cats rule skin by Nesmaty

For two journal styles using the same codes (one in white colors and one in dark colors)

After some notes telling them to add my CSS credits .. They promised to do so .. However, they didn't .. they kept the old entries as they are and only the last entry changed into this:

Now what should I do .. :hmm:


I've sent my first note to that deviant 1 day and 10 hours ago

I wrote this journal 9 hours ago

I reported them just a while ago

I know I sound desperate .. but it really hurts me .. thus I am bothering you guys with this silly update

Let's see what will happen after informing the help desk .. :please:


They have changed the credits as it should be in all of their entries .. :phew: .. Finally 

Thanks for every deviant who supported me ^_^

Please do inform me if you found some codes being spirited away from my gallery into some suspicious journals


❤ Have a nice winter guys!

Border CSS Tips

Fri Mar 2, 2012, 5:23 AM
You'll find many border css styles all around the web .. I am not adding anything new here .. just collecting some of my favourite border styles and tips together .. Also I want our students in eCSSercise to check on this blog .. hope u'll find them useful :dummy:

:new: Wow .. thanx for the feedback .. with ur help I'll add more tips below .. keep an eye on them XD

What's a border?

Border is what surrounds your html/css object/item, let it be a text, an empty box, or an image .. etc

What makes up a border?

Border has four properties:

Color - Width - Style - Radius

Whether you choose for your border to be visible or not, bear in mind it's made up of four parts:

Top - Bottom - Right - Left

How to use that in CSS?

The border properties have different ways to write down their values, but I always use a fixed/limited way:

color: #------; --> border color
width: --px; --> border thickness
style: solid, dashed, dotted; --> border appearance
radius: --px; -->border corner

Thus you can consider your border to be one entity and give it one value for each property .. e.g:

Or consider the four parts and give each its own value .. e.g:
border-top-width: 1px;
border-right-width: 1px;
border-bottom-width: 1px;
border-left-width: 1px;

An example for a short way to write it is:
border-width: 1px 2px 3xp 4xp;

This way top border will be 1px
This way right border will be 2px
This way bottom border will be 3px
This way left border will be 4px

Come on .. applied examples plz!!

The chit chat above was a quick overlook of what I think is important about borders .. From down below you'll see some live examples of how interesting a border can be .. the code will be written inside the border!

Colored border

  border: 4px solid;
  border-color: #F9BE6B #666666 #CC6633 #666666;
