About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

News, views etc...Basic HTML for Blogs, Forums etc...

Might be of some use to some people? I know it took me ages back in 2008 to discover all this. The last three also work in comment boxes on Blogger/Blogspots.

Black text is explanatory, blue text is the required code - type in the normal way, green text is where you paste links, khaki text is were you type the text of your choice (the bit that will appear as a 'hot-link' in a different colour to the rest of the text after you publish (mid-blue is the default, if you haven't chosen another colour in 'layout').

If you enlarge it and print it out, you can pin it next to the PC and it'll always be there when you need it. The important thing to remember is the 'closing code' needs to have the forward slash before the a,b,i, or u. Otherwise you will turn the rest of the text, article or comment into a hot link or underline it all!
