A few minutes to kill

I've got a few minutes to kill before I bail out of here for the day. Last Friday and today I had pretty tolerable projects to work on and with only a few days left until payday I still have money in my pocket. God forbid, but I think I may be adjusting to all of this. Not that I have ever stayed interested in a job longer than two years, but things being as they are I may actually endure this long enough to get what I want to out of it.

Re: you don't know me...
You do it in the "Modify Journal" section, in the big box marked "This is not where you update your journal". Then you set the LiveJournal variables you want to set. There is a list of variables you can set in the "Developer Area". You need to use CSS (I'm assuming you know a bit about it since you have rollover links in your journal) to set the background, and you'll need somewhere else to host the image. Here's what I've done to set up my background and change the reply thingie, just change the background URL and the messages to do what you want to do:

GLOBAL_HEAD<=
<STYLE TYPE="text/css"><!--
font { font-family: century gothic, arial, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt}
body { background-color: black;
background-image: url("http://www.mbarrick.net/mbarrick.net/hub.nsf/journalbackground!OpenImageResource");
background-repeat: repeat-y;
background-attachment: fixed;
margin: 0}
-->
</STYLE>
<=GLOBAL_HEAD

LASTN_TALK_READLINK<=
<A HREF="%%urlread%%">%%messagecount%% quarter%%mc-plural-s%% collected</A> |
<=LASTN_TALK_READLINK
LASTN_TALK_LINKS<=
<BR CLEAR=ALL>
<DIV ALIGN=RIGHT STYLE="font-family: century gothic, arial, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt}">
(%%readlink%%<A HREF="%%urlpost%%">Add your two bits worth</A>)
</DIV>
<=LASTN_TALK_LINKS

DAY_TALK_READLINK<=
<A HREF="%%urlread%%">%%messagecount%% quarter%%mc-plural-s%% collected</A> |
<=DAY_TALK_READLINK
DAY_TALK_LINKS<=
<BR CLEAR=ALL>
<DIV ALIGN=RIGHT STYLE="font-family: century gothic, arial, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt}">
(%%readlink%%<A HREF="%%urlpost%%">Add your two bits worth</A>)
</DIV>
<=DAY_TALK_LINKS
