[RawJournal] Lesson #2: Instant shouting

Let's say... You're extremely pissed off about something, so you open LiveJournal and start writing down a heated rant.

About 4-5 paragraphs down, it hits you: You want to shout LIKE THIS.  You get even more pissed off, 'cause now you have to retype everything in uppercase...

Let HTML/CSS goodness help you right there. :D  Enclose the paragraphs you want to convert uppercase in:

<div style="text-transform: uppercase">...</div>

Or if it's just a part within a paragraph, use span tags instead of divs.

For example:

<div style="text-transform: uppercase">
<p>Thank you to my sister who woke me up at 9 a.m. in the fucking morning just to give her the fucking Christmas CD that she wanted... She couldn't ask my parents to do it, she had to ask <strong>me</strong> to do it because she's too fucking lazy to call the house and tell my parents to get it.&nbsp; In addition being up this early makes me not only the grumpiest person alive, it also makes me the clumsiest...</p>

<p>And thirdly I had to hear my parents bitch me out for leaving my computer on because it didn't actually shut down last night.&nbsp; <strong style="font-size: 300%">It's a motherfucking HP, what the fuck do you want me to do about it?!&nbsp; It's not my fault it fucking doesn't shut down half the fucking time.</strong></p>
</div>

becomes:

And thirdly I had to hear my parents bitch me out for leaving my computer on because it didn't actually shut down last night.  It's a motherfucking HP, what the fuck do you want me to do about it?!  It's not my fault it fucking doesn't shut down half the fucking time.

And...

<div style="font-family: Arial Black">
<p><span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">And fuck you Windows Update.</span>&nbsp; You say <q>Well we know you've declined in the past to install XP SP2, but we think it's an important update so we decided to bug you again!</q> <span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">for a billionth time even when I said <q>No, I know what I am doing and don't fucking bother me ever again!</q> every single time you asked!</span></p>

<p>And every time you want to pop up a window and ask me to install XP2, <span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">you fucking slow down my computer to a motherfucking crawl so I can't do any work that uses CPU power which I need to compile and debug this goddamn program I need to finish by the end of this year.&nbsp; Fuck you <q>update.exe</q>!</span></p>

<p>All this, and you still herald Windows XP as an operating system designed with productivity in fucking mind?&nbsp; Do you call bothering your customers with some unnecessary shit that they <span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">repeatedly refuse</span> a productivity?&nbsp; <span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">Isn't that what spammers do?&nbsp; Didn't you just declare your war against spams?&nbsp;</span> You see, there's this one thing called <span style="text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 90%">logic</span>; ever heard of that, you motherfuckers?&nbsp; Yeah?</p>
</div>

<p>Rant over.&nbsp; Eugene out.</p>

becomes:

And fuck you Windows Update.  You say Well we know you've declined in the past to install XP SP2, but we think it's an important update so we decided to bug you again! for a billionth time even when I said No, I know what I am doing and don't fucking bother me ever again! every single time you asked!

And every time you want to pop up a window and ask me to install XP2, you fucking slow down my computer to a motherfucking crawl so I can't do any work that uses CPU power which I need to compile and debug this goddamn program I need to finish by the end of this year.  Fuck you update.exe!

All this, and you still herald Windows XP as an operating system designed with productivity in fucking mind?  Do you call bothering your customers with some unnecessary shit that they repeatedly refuse a productivity?  Isn't that what spammers do?  Didn't you just declare your war against spams?  You see, there's this one thing called logic; ever heard of that, you motherfuckers?  Yeah?

Rant over.  Eugene out.

Some bonus: As you can see above,

  • When intermixing SHOUTING and normal tones, reducing the font size of the shouting portion by 5 to 10% makes the entire thing easier to read.

  • &nbsp; can be used to double space between sentences.  Use &nbsp; in the place of the first space after the closing punctuation (period, question mark, exclamation point, and so on).  Make it a habit to type &nbsp; after all such punctuation mark. :D

  • Arial Black is a superb shouting font. ^^
