Starting up again….

Saturday, 20. February 2010 12:58

So…. looking back at this website/blog, it’s been one year, three months, and one week since I last made a post or updated anything.

However, over the last few days (or weeks) I’ve been thinking to myself, ‘I should really update my blog, and think about posting to it again.’ And so, the update and this new post. I plan to post more regularly (i.e. more than just once every 1.25 years), and on adding in my thoughts on things that I read, drink, eat,  play, etc. Almost reviews, I suppose. I generally have an opinion about those things, so it seems to make sense that they would furnish me material about which to write. That’s the plan, anyways.

To go along with that, I spent this morning redesigning the blog, updating features, getting the forum system back up and working,  cleaning up spam, and generally just some retrofitting that needed to be done. I plan to have the next few posts up soon.

So, I haven’t been up to nothing after all. I’ve been working on a new online photo album for the past few weeks. Most of the time has been spent uploading pictures, though some time was also spent getting the album software up, picking the pictures to put into it, resizing them (all 1200 x 900, plus smaller versions) and doing a few touchups. Right now there are a little over 650 pictures up there.

I hope to have this updated in the coming weeks to work seemlessly with the blog part of this site, so that I can put album features into the blog posts, and blog features into the picture posts, and have a single logon for both the blog and the album. We’ll see how that goes.

In the mean time, the album is up here. I’ll also add a link in the ‘links’ list to the right.

The page layout and theme will probably be changing a bit too, as it’s very basic right now, but the bulk of the work in getting the basic setup and in uploading pictures is done, at least.

Leaving October 22nd. Returning November 1st.

Rough itinerary is:

Leave Oct. 22nd. Arrive Oct. 23rd
23rd through morning of 27th: London
27th-28th (one night): Oxford
28th-29th (one night): Gloucestershire and Bath
29th-1st (three nights): back in London
1st: Return to California

PLUS, I was selected in the NFL UK lottery to buy tickets to the game (so no scalping or expensive club seats will be needed); they go on sale on May 29th at 10:00 am, but I think that’s GMT, which means 2:00am for me. No sleep for me next week!

Now begins the 3-4 week waiting period during which I have no working xbox 360.

New project: Get xbox media center working on the old xbox, so videos and music can still be streamed from the computer!

It was one year ago today that out of a fit of boredom and a lack of anything productive to do, was begat. That officially makes this website 1 year old. Happy birthday,!

Planned for the next few weeks/months: Exploration and tests of changing from a more blog-like entity to a more portal-like entity, with a fully integrated blog, forum-system, chat-system, and image gallery, and playing around with getting some version of phpFFL to work on a subdomain of Stay tuned!

So, it’s off to work for me, right to where so many annoyingly loud people will be protesting later today. Fun fun fun!
