It is not very difficult once you know how:
- highlight and copy ctrl-c your web table
- open your spreadsheet, paste ctl-v into the spreadsheet
- you may have headers you want to delete, remove the whole row
- you can also delete any columns, remove the whole column
- to remove images: home > find & select > go to special > objects. All images will be selected, delete
- then you can manipulate your spreadsheet
- save your spreadsheet
To highlight an area, click on the top left box, manipulate to the bottom right box, hit shift enter

I continue to search for work, and Monster.ca is one of many sites I visit. Lately I have noticed that almost all of the jobs posted on Monster are from headhunters. It’s not that headhunters are bad per se, but that some of their advertised job descriptions are close to: “Wanted: Live animal. Able to stand up and breath without keeling over. Please send your resume to ima @ headhunter.com”. Would it kill the recruiter to provide a little more position-related information? Often times there are three headhunters from the same agency posting essentially the same cut and paste effort to the same job board. Do you think that possible candidates do not notice this?
How odd the spelling of this website. I mistakenly went to Technocrati.com and got a URL squatter’s site. I think it tried to download some bad code, as my browser had a bout of techno indigestion, until I killed the loading.

Problem: After installing the AboutPeople theme and FCKeditor on Drupal 6.9, when the editor is invoked its editor window background is black and the text colour is black, not allowing you to see what you’re writing.
Solution: This is not a problem of the theme or the module, but an unfortunate consequence of their interaction.
Here the fix.
Summary: Go into FCK Editor, change the default style sheet, which is “use theme CSS”, to the “FCKeditor default” style sheet, and the background will turn white, allowing you to see what you’re typing.

So my plan is to eventually migrate my website DonTai.com from Doteasy to Site5. I’ll use Drupal on Site5. Originally I wanted to get Drupal running on Site5, and then change my domain registrar. This way I don’t get any downtime on my site, not that this matters.
Interestingly, using Fantastico it was very easy to create a Drupal web site in my root directory. Fine. Unknown to me is the fact that the Drupal site is configured to http://dontai.com, which still points to my original site on Doteasy. I therefore cannot get to the new Drupal site using my domain name.
I was researching all day on the web, hard at work looking at some new-to-me web technology and where it might lead the world. It’s all part of the fantastic world of web 2.0. There’s a 15% off sale for web hosting at Site5 that ends today. Dave says Site5 is good, and from what I’ve read they seem great. I sign up and in the middle of the transaction I wasn’t clear on an issue and clicked to the previous screen, when Summer popped up on my screen and cheerfully upped my discount to 20% off. Whoa, was I surprised, in the middle of my kitchen. Here she is.
