oof, it’s been a little quiet here

Anyway, thought I’d try making those computer-window-style codes that other people are making.

.Command Prompt C:\Users\stella_vigo>"Documents\writing\poetry\the_programmer's_bane.docx"

I am the programmer’s bane.

I am half comma and half colon,
I am the humble semicolon.
The hide-and-seek champion
according to my victims.

My presence, they should not neglect
lest the compilers reject
all the work they have been slaving over.

Such is the misery of the programmer.

These coders make me wheeze and cry
tears of laughter as their bloodshot eyes
scan endless lines of code
to seek the root of problems that arose.

I’ll give you a hint:
I’m part of it.
Or rather, my absence is.

Have you got the gist?

When my programmers do, they bang their fists
and I am sent into hysterics
for a little semicolon like me was all they missed.

After they put a clone of me
I am filled with glee
the moment they see
they are not yet free
for more errors have come to be.

Then they cause another racket
when they realize a missing bracket
caused the failure of their project.

Ah, of course, the other prime suspect.

And people wonder why programmers burn with fury
when they claim that coding is easy.

These amateurs do not know
what great lengths coders have to go
to produce a program that compiles and runs
as expected until the job is done.

Isn’t programming fun?

I am not the only one laughing.

Python is there in the corner, watching
and cackling
and muttering,
“I pity those who deal with such things.”

I am the programmer’s bane.
Semicolon is my name,
and for many programming errors, I am to blame.

Hmm, it could be. Maybe the aspect ratios of our screens are different? It’s a mystery :sweat_smile:

The values I use are adjustable, so if you make your browser window larger or smaller the dimensions would adjust accordingly. I only got it to touch the edge when I really shrunk my browser window.

How do I get the watermark and table of contents to come out of the main big box? I have the closing attributes for all styles, but still, my boxes are just making separate boxes inside of the main one, and I cannot figure out how to get it to add more boxes!

I don’t quite understand what you mean :sweat_smile: Could you show me how it looks like?

I can’t get the extra stuff to form another separate box at the bottom or for my watermark to come out of the scrollbox…
I want to add a table of contents, but separately, not in the scrollbox, but that’s not working…

hmm, send me the raw code please? it’s easier to see what went wrong

[feel free to inspect if it makes it easier to comb though… And ignore the webkit-scrollbar attribute. It didn’t quite work…]

Mind if I step in? :sweat_smile:

First things first, don’t use different coding languages, alignment and styling goes whack. Try to stick to pure HTML+CSS or BBCode. You can use a different line of code for it and close it for that specific part. Example:

<span style="properties"><span style="properties">yada</span></span>

Second would be not to space out your code. Use the <br> attribute, otherwise, once again, everything goes whack.

Third is that scrollbars can’t be customised here, so the -webkit-scrollbar code won’t work

Fourth (and I’m not sure if this really effects your the product of your code but out of curiosity) why do you add a space before your semicolon? Like so:
code: yada ; and not code: yada; or code:yada;

Just a heads-up. It looks like this on my phone :sweat_smile:

Absolutely not! Welcome to the discussion!

Ah okay!

Hm okay

Yeah, I figured that. I just didn’t get to removing it again lol.

It just makes it easier to comb through for myself, so I just space things out :woman_shrugging:

OOH thanks for that! I didn’t exactly want it to be like this, but thanks! I didn’t make the images and text separate because I have like three images for each dress lol. I do wanna know how you got the watermark to come out of the main code… I’m going to spend some time beautifying it this weekend, hopefully, and I want to add a table of contents then…

try the stuff I suggested and let me know if it still doesn’t work then
especially for the semicolons, place them directly after the style and add a space after if you want — i know i said i’m not sure if that directly affects your code since I didn’t deep-dive, but it’s a good practice, and as a safeguard. :slight_smile:
