good day!

By Blog No Comments

Today was a gooooood day! Partly cause last night was a very very good night. Those involved will know why. Even though today did start on a weird note. I woke up after having a weird dream sort og gone badish. I dreamt that i was batman and i was running with catwoman. At one point Catwoman was jumping through the air between a couple of buildings. She was aiming to grab onto a pole traversing the two buildings but she wasn’t gonna make it so I as batman swung down to try and save her.

As we flew she just missed the pole but she was grabing out with her hands and her long claw-like fingernails were tapping off the pole. I then woke up to the same sound which was the ivy outside my window tapping on the glass. It was very odd indeed. Any readings into this would be appreciated.

My afternoon was pretty dull – didnt really get much done. This eve I went and had dinner at Victoria & Richard’s place and James was there too. We had chicken and it was gorgeous. a very tasty meal!

So all in all a good day!

PHP and techie stuff

By Techie, WordPress No Comments

ok so I really have bitten off a little more than i can chew on this whole wordpress game. I’ve found a few tutorial sites that show you how to build your own wordpress themes (the layouts and style) but they are all very complicated. It makes me realise how limited my webskills are. It is all PHP scripting and such which i have bugger all experience in and its alot to take in.

 Implementing the styles from my old site is looking to me more difficult than i previously hoped however its good as this means i will be advancing my knowledge of it all. Watch the site for more developments!

I’m thinking that part of my lack of regular posting last year was due to the complexity of how i had to write stuff! – Hopefully this will all change now that i have this workin properly! – Yay

Had a nice day today. Mest some frioends this afternoon and had a giggle. Then went on to Meet my bro in law Andrew for his birthday drinks in the pub. It was cool An old friend of mine Simon was there. He’s a year younger than me but he is married with a daughter and another baby on the way. It reminded me that life is going rather quickly! Its weird!

The site

So Now I have this running off of wordpress I now need to work in all my own style sheets never mind all the old blog entries. I dont think I’ll be able to avoid doing all of this manually which is a bit s**t to be honest. but there you go! From now on the blogging bit should be a much easier process to manage and I’ll be able to do it from anywhere not relying on dreamweaver!

I also have to incorporate all the other stuff like the videos and the gallery and all that stuff – It’ll happen!

Been working on an animation project involving South Park and Richard Branson. So far its looking hilarious and hopefuilly the client will agree.

More Developer stuff

This site has been evolving dramatically over the years along with my skills. As I learn i apply it to the site. I need to get more flash stuff going but for now I am getting a hold of CSS however its not all plain sailing. I don’t have a full understanding of the coding yet. At the moment i tend to go back over what i have done and adapt that. I’d like to be able to understand the code fully and write from starch – Ho Hum

Still on the look out for a Microsoft SQL database that will run a blog and allow me to use all my css stuff too. If anyone knows of one please let me know. Yes I know there are tones of MySQL free databases like wordpress out there but our web server is a Microsoft based server and the hosting company wont allow us to my mysql onto it – cretins! Anyway any ideas much appreciated!

2007 is here – Good Lord!!

Its 2007 – Wow! Happy New Year everyone!

So Last Year was a bit s**t for me! We all know this but this year will be better! Well it had better be other wise I’m gonna have to go and kick someones head in, who’s I dont know, pronbably my own. Hoping to pull things together this yera and get everything sorted work wise so I can actually make a living rather than a survival! Its gonna be good!

Christmas is coming!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!

By Blog No Comments

For the first time in a looooooooooooooooooooong time I am really looking forward to Christmas. I’m spending it with my parents, my bro and my eldest sis and its all happening in Glasgow. My dad has put my on the insurance of his car so I can share the driving so that should be interesting! Anyway its an odd thing cause i am really excited about christmas. The last couple of years have been really s**te. As a result of that I’ve stopped myself from feeling. I’ve put all that means dear to me at arms length and avoided thinking and taking it all in. I stopped doing that and now i really do have a new Zest for life! I’m not only excited about christmas but I’m looking forward to what the next year has in store for me!

Spending it in Glasgow is gonna be great! It will be the first christmas since i was a small kid where i’ll be with kids who are gonna get so excited and be jumping around waiting for Santa! It’s gonna be ACE!

I did a wee video for my nearest and dearest which i sent out a few days ago but i thought i’d let everyone see it as it is quite a powerful video that inspires one of those things that christmas is all about – Love! Sorry for the soppiness but its true! – OFFLINE
