posting art internationally

I just received a parcel from thinkgeek.com that was shipped from the US on the 12th and arrived here today!! (15th. And actually it left the US on the 12th, which was the 13th here, so WOW!) It was shipped with DHL. It cost more, but WOW! I may look into that sort of service for art parcels in the future. Just for the security. I just about have a fit every time I put an art parcel to the hands of Australia Post. I haven't lost anything yet, (and I hope to god I never do!) and for that reason I get more nervous with each parcel that goes out, thinking that, statistically, it's bound to happen...one day... :~(

Oh, and now this LJ thing has really pissed me off because I can't select a custom friends group! *stabs*

so I'm not able to choose any group and I even tried just posting with 'custom' selected and that defaulted to 'private.'

Hmm - another friend on my flist just said the same thing. It must be the browser. Try another one and see if that changes. I have a Mac and funny enough, WE are always the ones getting "screwed" and not having access to things (i.e., we don't have the Rich Text feature - both before and after the new changes).

However, in Safari - my custom groups show up at the bottom of the page (when selected) and since I have a lot of groups, they are listed in four columns (seven groups in each).

It can also be a bug and since it seems that SO many people are having this issue, I'm sure they'll work on it soon. You can possibly report it in the announcement post on lj_design. Hope it works out for all of you! Good luck!

Yeah, it seems to be an IE thing!

It's working in Safari just fine but I noticed a lot of people were complaining about a glitch in it with IE.

And yeah - usually the Mac users get screwed! I'm still wishing we had a version of Semagic!

I only have IE so it's not like I can change to anything. :~( And it was working FINE yesterday, even on the new format. *whines*

Is there any way your computer can handle a second downloaded browser? (I have three on mine and there isn't any problems). The Firefox page I have bookmarked is - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/. Even though the "US" is in the address, the "About" page said it's used world-wide so I'm sure there is either another link somewhere for a download or the one on that page works everywhere.

Hubby was going to switch to Firefox (wait - is that Mozilla? *feels dumb*) but, no, not enough room on our comp at the moment. :~\

Have you tried Firefox? It's a free download - I like it much better than IE. (In fact I don't have IE on my computer anymore because I don't like it. LOL

I hope it gets sorted out soon, though.

It's working in Safari just fine but I noticed a lot of people were complaining about a glitch in it with IE.

I'm in the middle of typing my first entry using the new design (which I don't like in general) BUT for some reason, I'm loving the font or something. There is a different "feel" to the text box which I do like. Ironic.

Anyway, for those of you on IE - have you tried Firefox? I'm too tired/lazy right now to launch it and sign in just to test it out since Safari is working fine for me but I was curious if it's only IE.

chickadilly - We did have a Mac version of a client but it may not be by Semagic. I forgot which one I had DLed in the past but it got lost when I updated to 10.4.8. I ended up still just using the LJ post box because typing the html tags is just second-nature at this point so it seemed like an extra step for me. There is a "Download a Client" link on the post page incase you want to look into it. :D

Oh yeah, I actually have two clients for LJ on my iMac and I dislike both of them. Neither are as good as Semagic is. I really wish whoever makes Semagic would just make a version for Mac!

Oh well. *lesighs*

I only have IE so...yeah, no choice of changing to another browser. Nor should I have to. It worked fine yesterday. Or seemed to.
