Updated LAMB Scroll Box Code

File this under: things I should have thought of long ago.

At the bottom of the LAMB Scroll Box, I tell you to “email the LAMB” if you want an updated version of the code. I get requests periodically, but for the most part, people’s boxes on their sites are wildly out of date (even the one on BC gets that way sometimes).

Such is the trouble of not having something that can update dynamically. I’ve been told by a LAMB (T.C. of Popcorn N Roses, iirc) that I can use javascript to make it do so, but I’m no programmer and doing so would amount to a learning curve that I’m too impatient to endure. File that under: things that I plan to do at some point.

In the meantime, I realized that I could use freewebs.com to store a text version of the code. Then I can post the link to the file here and anyone who wants it can save it and update their box without having to email me. As a bonus, with it up here, perhaps more people will add one to their site. My intention right now is to go through this process at least once a month, so if you don’t see a new version by June, give me a hard time and I’ll get on it.

Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.freewebs.com/blogcabins/lambscrollboxcodes/LAMBScrollBoxCode042309.txt

Instructions: Do a right-click (Mac users, click and hold down or CTRL+click), Save Target As (or Save Link As). In the dialog box, you’ll see that the extension has been changed to an htm file. Ignore this for now and save to the destination of your choice. Once saved, manually change the extension from htm to txt. Update on your blog as you desire.

Let me know if you run into any issues or have any questions.
