Thank you for the condolences. I will be hanging around a bit more in the near future. Just had surgery on my right foot and ankle and am not allowed to put any weight on it much less drive for the next 8 - 10 weeks minimum. It just won't be the same without Nikki cuddling up and purring

"Distinction without a difference is distinction without a difference." ;-) *** (By Emerald63 on Sep 11, 2016 at 4:37 PM * LOL! S'kay!! No worries. "Transparency" made sense to me, too. For that matter, what the heck is *that* setting for if it doesn't actually make, well, transparency? Good to know the real deal, but srsly... no worries. And yes, I really did LOL when I saw your explanation. :)

The re-CAPTCHA check-and-frequently-a-picture-challenge hoop they make you jump through before you can "submit" your lol. Grumpy cat sez, "CAPTCHA...I HATE IT." *** ( By Emerald63 on Sep 11, 2016 at 4:27 PM * I saw the LOL, but I have no clue what CAPTCHA is. If you care to fill me in, that's cool. If you're not in the mood, no sweat.)

So, to recap/restate: set "Text Visibility" to zero, "Effects" to "None."

By catsuberalles on Sep 11, 2016 at 4:31 PM

Oh Em, I'm so sorry! I just noticed now as I was doing my latest lol, it's not called "Transparency," it's called "Text Visibility." No wonder you were confused. I'm so sorry for causing you frustration! Goodness knows we have enough as it is.

Good luck on the first, *shrug* on the second. Maybe people don't appreciate the uniqueness. On another note, I've had a rough time with CAPTCHA today. http://cheezburger.com/8975241472 *** (By Emerald63 on Sep 11, 2016 at 4:13 PM * I'll see about trying your *exact* instructions on the transparent thing. I know I checked that box, but either I didn't know or forgot about setting it to zero and effects to none. I'll let you know what happens whenever I try it. ++ Thanks for the Scrappy info. That is just too weird. I can't think of anything other than vitiligo (or a kitteh version). But... you'd think if that's it we'd have heard about it before now. Human vitiligo isn't that common, but you do hear about it, see pics now and then. As cat-mad as the internet is, you'd think anyone with a Scrappy-like cat would post pictures every chance they get.)

From Scrappy's Facebook profile: "About Scrappy was born in 1997 as a black cat and only a few years ago he started turning white (maybe vitiligo) and has ended up with this extraordinary pattern" *** (By Emerald63 on Sep 11, 2016 at 3:59 PM * Just saw your LOL of Boss Scrappy. I've only seen a cat like that once or twice before. Such an *odd* coat! Do you know if there's a name for it? I'd love to learn more about them, the circumstances that produce that coat. My brother-in-law teaches honors biology and he might be able to explain more about it if I have some basic info.)

'welcomes. I wish I could look over your shoulder to troubleshoot, it gets to be too much typing back and forth and I get a massive lazy attack. I So agree with you on the "appendage." Harder to lol, less functionality.."(they) make a grown man cry." Invisible titles are easy, at least; set Transparency to zero and Effects to 'none.' Please let me know if that works for you. Thanks for the encouraging words. Smiling through the tears. Hugs back. *** ( By Emerald63 on Sep 11, 2016 at 3:42 PM * Fang-Q, cua. ++ Nope on the smartphone. I think. I've got one that does some stuff, but I almost never use it other than for emergencies, to rendezvous with hubby while in the big box stores, and when we're on the road. I don't think I could see a dern thing on it either. Mostly I'm having trouble getting LOLs to "take," meaning I make one and it won't post. I've tried saving it to my hard drive, then cropping just a bit, as you suggested. It's worked a couple times, but not others. I've also been having trouble getting images to upload so that I can cap them here. If I cap them elsewhere, there's trouble uploading them here, even if I crop them. I've made sure to start checking every time that what I make elsewhere is saved as a jpeg, rather than a tiff. The tiffs simply will not upload. But the jpegs only upload sometimes. If "LOLmaker" were a human appendage, I'd feel like mine was in a massive cast with no known date of recovery... or amputation. ++ BTW, exactly how have you done the transparent captions as titles in the basic builder? My efforts showed up as white on the LOL, rather than as invisible. I checked transparent for color, but it didn't work. Any ideas? ++ It's good to see you making LOLs, friend. *Really* good. (Hugs)

Ohai, sweetie!! We've had snow on the East Ridge (that was Labor Day) so no picnicing. Not that I'm much of a picnic person any more.Been down in the dumps since Sylvia left us but I know that is absolutely not what she would have wanted. I am mostly reading and playing on FB (have hooked up with lots of cheezpeeps there). Kind of excited for October though. Winnie Wonka is coming through town on her way to a concert in Missoula and we are going to cheezmeet for lunch! I haven't been to a concert in ages but when I lived in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe in the late 60s, I saw EVERYONE!! I think maybe the lol you're thinking of is the Carlos Santana story about him sweating on me at a show at Lake Tahoe. I'll look around for it. My son and I saw lots of shows in Reno, too, in the 80s. My Mom worked for a radio station and we got free tickets. Our favorite, though, was the Beach Boys because it was outside on a great summer evening! Sorry to hear about your car/truck troubles. Has Mark healed from the crash yet? Give him my best, please! My cats seem a little upset with me that it is getting cold so early this year. Apparently, I am in charge of food AND weather now. Personally I love it. The trees are turning and wood smoke is in the air. Thankfully all the rain has put out the big fires in this part of the state so it's not Forest Fire smoke anymore. The Fair sounds really fun. I think I'd kinda like to see some butter sculptures. Can you take pictures?? LOL!! Love you long time, my friend. Massive hugs from me Six and Magic!! <3

You're welcome re Plummy. That's 6-700 miles from her, likely didn't feel it. Dunno what to tell you about the current lol-ing sitrep, I'm out of ideas. Thanks for all the supportive words. *** (By Emerald63 on Sep 1, 2016 at 5:40 PM * Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure where she is. However, today's quake was off North Island. Not sure where exactly; CNN says around 350 miles "northeast" of Wellington (i.e., from the southern tip of North Island) and 119 miles east of the island. The only "tsunami" (so far) was around 11." Yeah... not really an issue. But there are continuing sizeable aftershocks all around the area. ++ Did you catch my latest LOL effort? When it wouldn't upload from the "advanced" *cough*BS*cough* builder, I tried uploading a couple of times using the basic one with the "transparent" setting you told me about for a title. But just look in my Stuff file - it defaulted to white. I'm wiped and discouraged from the effort, so I'm outta here after I send this. ++ Hang in there... Sometimes, even if it doesn't get better, it will get easier. Maybe you could ED some messages I sent to AtomicBrain a while back. He lost a friend earlier this year, too, though in different circumstances. The main message was on April 16. I also told him later about an amazing album I listen to often when I'm looking for calm and transcendence. It's called "The Origin of Fire" and is made up of Gregorian type chants but sung by women (and with a bit more melody, too). The creator of the chants was Hildegard von Bingen who lived in the 1100s. She was an amazingly accomplished woman, and one with a deep spirit. It's available from iTunes, not that I'm plugging them, just that that's how I got my copy. ++ Thanks again for the info on SovaPlum. (((Hugs)))

ED bear in mind SovaPlum is at the northern tip of NZ's North Island. (i.e. & e.g. an earthquake in say Christchurch would be elebenty miles south of her.
