Happy Birthday To Me! Here’s My First Blog Post!

Cake. Yay.

Cake. Yay.

I found this blog entry amongst my files, it was apparently written on my 18th birthday and I started a blog.  Judging by the file format and how it was formatted, it looks like when I wrote my own blogging software.  In any case, I found it an interesting read, and maybe you will too.  Also, I’m now 24.  Damn, I feel old.

It’s finally my birthday. I’m 18 which means…absolutely nothing. This is exactly why I decided to start this weblog. This will hopefully become a great way for me to keep track of what I’ve been doing, and hopefully reminding me of tasks I want to and should be working on.

I do need to keep in mind though, that this is written for me, when my mind is worse then it is now (give it a few years, tops). Then I know I’ll enjoy having such a great record of my life from age 18 on. I need to keep this style

I do not intent for this to be looked at by others; in fact if you do read this, then you will probably be bored to tears at the meaningless drivel I’ll spew out in my free time. However, by all means feel free to browse around as you see fit, I wouldn’t make it public if I didn’t want some people looking at it.

I plan to include news about myself, as well as many other entries I write talking about from anything from daily observations I want to make a note of to debates about philosophy with myself (you know your a hermit, when you begin arguing with yourself).

Which reminds me, this backend for this weblog has taken me more then I once anticipated but I’m glad to have it at least working, even if it is screaming for features and perhaps a few bug fixes? It’s taken me about 6-8 hours spread over quite a few days and is still just bare bones as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully I’ll be able to add categories to the backend as well as a few features here and there to help me publish and work with entries, maybe even allowing myself to have a section for manuals I have written and am currently working on.

That’s about it for my first entry, short, and I think quite a bit off topic. Maybe this will be a good outlet for working on my writing skills. Then again, this is published without revision, maybe I should fix that…oh well maybe later.

Finally, I’m Back In Business

Newspaper with headline of "I'm Back"

That's right, I'm back.

It’s been awhile since the last update, and it’s honestly not ALL my fault.  We switched hosting packages to a reseller account, and the domain propagation was stuck for my ISP and my ISP alone, which required me to wait forever and then call my ISP, explain the issue in detail (Their secondary DNS server wasn’t refreshing it’s cache, it was stuck) and then wait till they called me back, stated I was right, and that I’d have to wait normal 24-72 hours for the domain to propagate.

So I’m finally back, and I have quite a few more ideas and goals.  For one I want to get better at writing reviews, whether it be movies, podcasts I listen to, and the addition of video games I play (although don’t expect me to play new releases).  I’m going to be experimenting with some review stuff, so bare with me while I flop around like a fish.

In other news, it’s still cold, everyone is sick of the weather.  On the plus side, it’s making it so everybody wants to hang out, because everyone is getting depressed.  Personally, I can’t wait till my friend Georgia gets back from Egypt sometime today.  I probably won’t get to talk to her till tomorrow though.  It’s been weeks since we have been able to talk, and by the sounds of it, her trip has been a heck of a ride.

So yeah, this downtime has not been all my fault, and hopefully I’ll expand on a few ideas I have going.  Expect updates soon.
